It has been 33 years since Back to the Future Part II looked at the then-far-off year of 2015. Yet, here it is, the end of 2022, and we’re still waiting for flying cars and hoverboards. Sure, the inflation rate is about right; remember Biff’s $174.50 cab fare? Well, for double the price of taking a taxi from Hill Valley to Hilldale, you can own two YARMS vinyl figures!
Mighty Jaxx announced two new vinyl art figures based on Doctor Emmit Brown and Marty McFly in the year 2015. Doc and Marty as sold as a $349 set. Sadly, you cannot pick these up individually. Marty stands 7.5″ tall, while Doc Brown is 8″ tall. For more YARMS collectibles, check out the studio’s Twitter and Instagram.
“Guess who’s back—back to the future? Marty and Doc make their return to Mighty Jaxx in their iconic Part 2 outfits! Sculpted in the style of YARMS Studio, they hold memorabilia important to the second movie: a copy of the Grays Sports Almanac and the futuristic hoverboard. Will they be able to fix the timeline? Or will the butterfly effect of their actions lead the world down a darker path? Join the time-traveling action with Back to the Future Part 2 x YARMS!”
Although the figures are simplistic, the detail is impressive. It’s hard to see from the pictures Mighty Jaxx has up, but the hoverboard’s top is mostly screen accurate, but it’s missing that iconic Mattel starburst logo. Gray’s Sports Almanac looks like it was lifted right from the film, including the small text banner on the book’s cover. Not bad. I think it weird that both characters look like they’re praying to the material goods they have in their hands.[Source: Mighty Jaxx] [Source: Mighty Jaxx]
