Official Back to the Future Lego Sets? Great Scott!

WARNING: The three Back to the Future Lego sets you’re looking at above don’t technically exist yet… but they might. They were submitted to Lego’s Cuusoo site, and just reached the necessary 10,000 votes for Lego to consider making them for real. Now, the decision won’t be entirely in Lego’s hands — Universal has to approve them, although I don’t see why they’d would have a problem with them… unless they signed away all the BttF toy rights to Mattel, and Mattel wanted to be dicks about it. Which is, admittedly, a possibility, but let’s cross our fingers anyways. (Via Gizmodo)
