Sun Star De Lorean from Back to the Future II

Time travel has always intrigued me. Imagine what you could do...all the wrongs made right, "earn" some $$ ;) or just able to experience and see beyond your life! This brings me to my next toy review...the Time Machine De Lorean from Back to the Future II.
Back to the Future is a 1985 science fiction adventure film directed by Robert Zemeckis and is one of those few movies where the sequels are just as good as the first one.
I could watch it over and over again and not get sick of it.
The movie is basically about Marty McFly (played my Michael J. Fox), a teenager who is accidentally sent back in time from 1985 to 1955. While in 1955, he meets his parents and accidentally becomes his mother's romantic interest. Because of that interference, his parents did not get together resulting in him not existing in the future, hence it's a race against time to repair the damage to history by causing his parents to fall in love, while finding a way to return to 1985.

The De Lorean was chosen as the time machine and boy its one cool machine. Sun Star produced a 1:18 die cast De Lorean from the second installment of the trilogy. Hence we get the "modified" version.
I think the details are pretty good. The interior looks accurate and the flux capacitor ( the one that makes time travel possible) is there too!
It's heavy when carried which is always a good thing.
Since the De Lorean is from the 2nd movie, it was modified to be able to fly. Sun Star made it possible to move the tires down (by moving a lever at the base of the car) so that we could also get the time machine in flying mode. A very nice touch I must admit.

How can you not have this item if you love the movie. Overall a very cool and nice item to display! No complaints for this one.
Until someone invents a real time machine, this will be the closest thing I can have!

I always loved this car. Wouldn't it be great to have one in 1/6 Scale? With Marty and Doc Brown it would be a marvelous scene.

I love this car as well. I have the same car part 2 but it was from Welly. Not diecast but it is the closet as I can get my hands on.

bro you never take the most important part of the car... the flux capacitor. :P

If we are to build a time machine, why not do it with Style? LOL
