LEGO has announced they’ll be producing a fan-designed Back to the Future LEGO DeLorean set which will likely have minifigs and modifications related to all three movies. The LEGO DeLorean was designed by Team Back to the Future on the Lego Cuusoo site, where fans can design their own LEGO sets and fans can endorse them. If 10,000 fans like a design, LEGO considers producing it and giving 1% of proceeds to the designer. This quarter, the LEGO DeLorean set was the winning design, and LEGO says they’ll likely release it mid-2013. But this news gets even more heavy:
Team Back to the Future, lead by Mashahi Togami, has pledged to donate their 1% to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. [/film]
So it’s awesome and charitable? Sold.
Here’s a video and a few more pictures spotted on Team Back to the Future’s Facebook page.
