Hot Toys Made the Perfect Back to the Future DeLorean Model

Few movie cars are as iconic as the time-traveling DeLorean Doc Brown built in Back to the Future. While there's been plenty of toy replicas made of the plutonium-powered ride, none have been so precise and beautiful as this model from Hot Toys. The 1/6 scale model includes LEDS inside and out, detailed cables running across the body, functional gull-wing doors, and a crazy amount of attention to detail. To be clear, this is for serious fans and collectors as it will probably retail for $600+. Still, it's a far more affordable (and smarter) option than actually buying a DeLorean to act like Marty.
