Back to the Future Part II die-cast (1:18 scale)

"The way I figured it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?" -- 'Doc' Emmett L. Brown

I just bought a Back to the Future Delorean die-cast from the BTTF Time Travel Terminal, its 1:18 in scale and it looks awesome. Below is my review sent for the item.

The first time I saw Back to the Future (BTTF) movie, I was amazed by the car itself. it took me 20 years for me to get hold on this die-cast model and it doesn't disappoint.

the details are good, the stainless steel construction are marvelous. the wheels are converted to a "flying" mode with a push of a button which is helpful.

the only downside of this model is the wheels are not properly placed when in "normal" mode. the wheels feel lose and it doesn't look nice when placed on the display board.

I took the car for a visit to my office yesterday and I was the star in the limelight for the day! haha... This is a MUST for every BTTF fans out there. 4/5 stars!

It's quite expensive to get this model into Malaysia. With much luck and effort, I made it, haha! Thanks everyone, especially to BTTF Time Travel Terminal for making my wish came true.
