The DeLorean features folding wheels for hover mode, gull wing doors, an illuminated flux capacitor inside and illuminated exterior. Also included is plutonium inside its own special case, which can be inserted at the back of the vehicle. The play set comes complete with Marty Mcfly and Doc Brown figures, depicted in their outfits from 1985. A skateboard, remote control and Einstein (the dog) are also included.

Collectors can also look forward to special figures of Marty & Doc Brown in their 1950s outfits. The sets comes complete with a 50s Rock‘n’Roll guitar and newspaper with ‘clock tower’ headline.
