This kinda flew under the radar...article from this past Tuesday...
Q: Do you have any plans on making "Back to the Future" figures?
A. Exclusive news for OSR: Yes, we have acquired the license of the Back to the Future and also got the approval of Michael J. Fox. We will also make the DeLorean vehicle. More announcements will be coming soon.

So, I've been collecting HT for a couple of years, and I have a modest collection (compared to others). I just put everything on hold for these figures. I was going to get a couple Avengers, but not now. I have to save money. I'll buy one Marty and one Doc. That is it. No way I can afford the delorean, but I would love to own one. They will probably be DX's and with the way HT has been jacking up prices, my guess Non DX = $215, Dx= $250. It may be more if Micheal's likeness rights cost an arm and a leg (which they probably did). I will have to probably sell my Blade or Wolverine figure to subsidize these. They will be spendy, but awesome. With any luck, if they do a DX we will get a two in one figure (2 costumes). Life preserver Marty, BTTF 2 2015 Marty, or Old west Marty would be my first picks.
