Mattel’s BTTF Hoverboard Replica Now Available for Pre-Order
March 5, 2012

As announced at Toy Fair – Mattel is making a prop replica of the hoverboard from Back To The Future.  It is a pre-order item and the pre-order window is open right now.  The added bonus is for all that pre-order you will get a bonus mini-hoverboard replica that will fit in with your 6″ scale action figures!  See below for all the details or just click here to pre-order one of your very own!  You only have until March 20th to get in on the pre-order bonus!


Great Scott, film fans! You won’t need a flux capacitor to fulfill your density because the first ever Hoverboard prop replica from the classic Back to the Future™ trilogy is coming to in 2012!

Movie-accurate down to the smallest detail and fully sanctioned by Universal Studios, this is a 1:1 scale model (measures approximately 28″ x 8″ x 3″). Our Hoverboard includes authentic “whooshing” sounds sampled directly from the films and a deco featuring Mattel logos just like in the films. And although full hovering technology isn’t expected until 2015, be assured your Hoverboard will gently glide over most level surfaces (it will not, however, work on water).

Get an EXCLUSIVE Hoverboard Scaled to 6″ Action Figures When You Pre-Order!
Pre-orders are accepted from March 1, 2012, through March 20, 2012 only at, with an expected shipping date of November/December 2012. Pre-order during the 3/1-3/20 period and not only will you be guaranteed to get an authentic Hoverboard prop replica, you’ll receive a pre-order exclusive, too… a Hoverboard scaled for 6″ action figures! It’ll hold most Mattel 6″ figures, so your favorites can get in on the futuristic fun, too. The only way to get this totally rad lil’ ride? Pre-order during the 3/1-3/20 period!

We will offer a small quantity for purchase in November/December, however, the price will be higher and you won’t get the mini Hoverboard. Purchasing during the pre-order period is the only way to guarantee you’ll get the Hoverboard prop replica for the pre-order price and the exclusive Hoverboard scaled for 6″ action figures. Don’t miss this window of opportunity, because as far as we know, once it’s over there’s no going back to the… well, you know!

How Pre-Orders Work
When you place a pre-order for your Hoverboard, your bank card will be pre-authorized $120 plus shipping/taxes/fees for each Hoverboard you order. Your bank will “reserve” this amount from your available balance until your Hoverboard(s) ships in November/December, at which time you will be charged. Orders may not be modified or cancelled once they are placed. If you need to change your card information or shipping address, please call Customer Service at 1-877-GO-MATTY. Please note that this product is larger/heavier than the majority of products we sell on, so you should expect higher than normal shipping charges. Charges will vary depending on where you are and the shipping method you choose. And yes, the Hoverboard is available for shipment internationally!

IMPORTANT! Hoverboard pre-orders CANNOT be placed in the same transaction with other products. If you would like to purchase products other than the Hoverboard, please complete your Hoverboard pre-order separately.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
