Display Your LEGO DeLorean with Pride and Head Back to the Future

Very few people need reminding of how fun LEGO is, but if the passion for these iconic bricks has remained with your childhood memories, you will likely be taking advantage of the fantastic collectables released over the years. What was once considered a simple building brick has evolved into a lifestyle, and many are keen to embrace the latest additions. This is especially true when the set released embodies a popular movie franchise like “Back to the Future”.

Regardless of whether you are familiar with the Marty and the Doc from the classic movie series or have enjoyed their adventures via the video game series, there is a good chance you recognise the iconic vehicle that is the focus of the series.

If you thought you had exhausted your options when collecting BTTF memorabilia, think again. April 1st, 2022 is a date that needs to be noted, as this is when LEGO releases the new iteration of the DeLorean, set 10300.

Enjoy Three Iterations of the Classic Time Machine in LEGO Form

There is a lot of debate between BTTF fans about which movie is the best. Do you prefer the escapades of Marty interacting with his younger parents in the first movie? Or maybe you like the limitations put in front of the Doc in “Back to the Future 3”?

The truth is that each movie has its own iconic moments. Further, each film also introduced fans to a different iteration of the DeLorean. Fortunately, fans of the series do not need to worry about which version they will receive, as the LEGO DeLorean takes on the form of all three.

"The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?"

If you prefer the car from the Old West, then the BTTF3 iteration is your mode. This version requires the whitewall tyres and hood-mounted circuit board to give you the same excitement that was present in the West when the train pushed the DeLorean back to 1985.

The different incarnations also ensure that fans of the movies can create a dedicated shrine that evokes the passion shared for the iconic time-travelling car that many of us share memories about.

Hasn’t LEGO Already Released a DeLorean?

Avid LEGO enthusiasts will be aware that this isn’t the first time LEGO has released the DeLorean (21103). Although a feast for the eyes, the original iteration was smaller and less detailed than the new release.

The original version of the DeLorean was based on the original design. In contrast, the updated model makes a series of changes that makes it a must-have, even if you own the original model.Display Case for LEGO 21103iDisplayit acrylic case for LEGO 21103 DeLorean Time Machine

Of course, this doesn’t make the set any less valuable among collectors, but it is essential to know that there is a difference between the two. However, both sets are a must for both LEGO and BTTF fans.

Displaying the DeLorean Without Taking Up Space

Whether you already collect BTTF merchandise, LEGO, or a mixture of both, it is vital to make the best use of space. Therefore, using displays is a must for collectors.

Given how expensive some collectables can be, finding a balance when displaying and protecting the pieces can be difficult. However, the display cases and stands from iDisplayit are practical, affordable, and robust. In addition to this, there are several iterations to ensure that you are always getting the most from your display.

Not only collectors can benefit from display cases, but businesses specialising in collectables. Despite the massive demand for the “Back to the Future” set, business owners will still be keen to promote how fascinating the real thing is.

The cases available from iDisplayit are perfect for this, and there are several versions available, meaning there is never any hindrance when finding the right fit. Furthermore, using a display case is a cost-effective way of protecting stock and limiting the potential for damage.

If you’re just buying one DeLorean but want easy access to change up the display, why not take advantage of one of the dedicated displays?

If you’re someone who can’t get enough of BTTF and want to display three models in various modes, then using the display cases can allow you to display and stack with other collectables without it looking too busy.

Whether you want to display the latest DeLorean or one of the many other iconic LEGO collections, then iDisplay has a display case that fits.
