Back To The Future: Doc Brown & Marty McFly Get Own Hot Toys Figures

Back to the Future's Marty McFly and Doc Brown are the latest ultra-detailed figures available from Hot Toys' Movie Masterpiece line. Released in 1985, Back to the Future has stood the test of time to become an iconic adventure film. Starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, the film follows Marty as he goes back in time in a time machine built out of a DeLorean. To return safely to his present day reality, Marty must then try to get his high-school-aged parents to fall in love again.

Back to the Future eventually spawned two sequels, although neither film proved to have the same long-lasting impact as the original. Although there hasn't been a Back to the Future film since 1990, a recent picture from Michael J. Fox's Instagram, featuring Fox and Lloyd in a golf cart together, proved that fans' love for the franchise is still going strong all these years later. Some are even hoping for a fourth entry in the franchise, but Back to the Future co-writer Bob Gale has gone on record stating that it won't happen.

As reported by CBR, while another sequel may not be in the cards, Back to the Future fans will have a new way to celebrate their favorite franchise with the release of Hot Toys' new Marty McFly and Doc Brown collectible figures. The 1/6 scale figures continue the company's tradition of crafting highly detailed, screen-accurate collectibles. Both figures are dressed as they appear in the Twin Pines Mall sequence of the film, with Marty in his puffy red vest and Doc in his white HazMat suit. Check them out below:

Both figures also come with an array of accessories owned by their original characters. The Marty figure, which retails for $285, includes a video camera, a skateboard, a portable cassette player, a "Save the Clock Tower" town flyer, and Doc Brown's sheepdog Einstein. The normal version of the Doc Brown figure is priced at $270 and includes the DeLorean remote control, a stopwatch, a clipboard, a toolbelt, a climate graph, and a portable printer. The Doc Brown "deluxe" version, which is available for $290, includes everything the normal version comes with but also features Doc's plutonium case and a removable plutonium tube.

Hot Toys has a reputation for making well-constructed, eerily accurate figures from many franchises, including Star Wars, the MCU and DCEU, TransformersPredator, and more. For die-hard Back to the Future fans, these new figures will certainly become must-have items. While perhaps not for casual viewers due to their high price point, the collectibles prove that the film has maintained its loyal fan base. There already seems to be high demand for the Marty and Doc figures, showing that love for the Back to the Future franchise is still going strong 36 years after the release of the original film.
