NEW MERCH FOR CLASSIC MOVIE ANNIVERSARIES ON THE LIST
The Playmobil Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine is a 64-piece set that represents the iconic time-traveling ride as it appeared through much of the original film. After a bit of assembly that might require a bit of grownup assistance — particularly with placement of a few important decals — kids will be ready to send the included figures of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown (in 1985 outfits) to whatever timeline imagination may dictate. Doc’s loyal dog, Einstein (the world’s very first time traveler, according to the film), is included, so the trusty canine can come along for the ride!
Kids and collectors can expand their time-traveling adventures with this set of Playmobil figures based on the 1955 scenes from the 1985 film, Back to the Future. Includes Marty McFly and his guitar from the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance, and Doc Brown with his jacket and gloves, ready to harness 1.21 gigawatts of power from a bolt of lightning.
The Critics' Choice Award Winner for Best Inanimate Object (2001) is also a fan favorite on the court. This replica of the actual ball used in the movie has a top-quality, synthetic leather cover for great touch and feel. The Mr. Wilson Cast Away may be a great friend, but it's an even better ball. Ask Tom Hanks.
Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Disney and Pixar's Toy Story with this new Buzz Lightyear action figure from Mattel’s Pixar collection. The beloved hero is highly posable and decked out in an authentic costume with iconic accessories. Includes his "Big One" rocket from Toy Story and his utility belt and Laser Blaster from Toy Story 2.
