Original text: I saw this on my twitter stream this morning. It’s kind of interesting that we’re still getting licensed sets based off of Back To The Future. It’s not like there’s a new movie coming, out, or a reboot, or a cartoon. Yet here we are with a Back To The Future BrickHeadz set with Marty McFly and Doc Brown. Marty has his camcorder and Doc is holding his remote. Wouldn’t it be great if they made a BrickHeadz-style DeLorean that could fit these two in it? It’s not like it’s never been done before:
Yeah, if there was ever any doubt about the longevity of BrickHeadz, I’m pretty sure something like this more or less means that BrickHeadz are here to stay. Forever. I fully expect a Ghostbusters four-pack now.
