FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 10

When you look at the box art, you immediately want to watch the movie or at least I did! Staring at the box takes you back to a past time when the movie and movies made you smile. Quickly, I opened the box and parted out the pieces and loved the instructions manual. Well themed and nostolgia everywhere around the box.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 10

You have to love DOC! Marty of course has his throw back gear and the awesome skate board. Once you build out the vehicle, you can appreciate the full piece as one unit. I have not built a Lego set in over 15 years, so there have been some interesting new additions, which is a great thing in my opinion.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 7

I personally built this for display purposes only. Being a collector only now, I decided sets like these need to be proudly displayed. Tearing it down and rebuilding to see how much faster you can build it and perhaps customizing it might be something others would want to do.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 8

The set is fairly new, so paying for the MSRP around here is good enough. I don't mind it if the set is awesome.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 9

One of my favorite trilogy's, so I can't complain. Perhaps there may be other ideas to create more of the Back to the Future sets and events.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 9

Seems like there are very limited areas to purchase this set, so I had to purchase it from Lego.com.

PACKAGING | Score: 8

Simple and concise.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8

If they ever decide to remake the movies, I could see the popularity growing and this set having huge demand!

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 9

Not huge and looks great on my desk and shelf at home or office.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

Price is right, great IP and theme, but we will need more of these types of set from the Back to the Future universe. I really enjoyed building this set and it brough back memories of when I was a child and loved Legos. I can truely say that I appreicated the creativity of this set and look forward to more of these types of sets.
