    Hell yes I did! Mine should be here on Wednesday. Apparently it fits most 3 3/4" figures quite snugly, as long as they aren't super tall (like Vader or Chewie). I was hoping to have the G.I. Joe 25th "Specialist Trakker" pilot it, since I ordered the Entertainment Earth exclusive version of the DeLorean that can convert to flight mode (MASK FTW!). But I've been told he's a bit too long in the torso to fit perfectly. Ah well. This still looks amazing and brings back so many childhood memories. I've been hoping to read some good reviews of it. Do you have yours in hand?

    Best F***ing toy ever! It's got some of the best sound effects on a toy I've heard. The lights are super bright and the detail is plentiful. Hover conversion is super smooth and truly a best bet! I'm thinking of ether kitbashing some Star Wars figures or using Minimates for Doc and Marty. It's currently in box on a shelf in my room.

    Man, I'm sorely tempted. I have the BTTF 1 version and it's frikkin' awesome. I'd love this version but I don't even have room for the other.

    I've got 1 and 3 with 3-rail ready on the way. This one was backordered and I'm still waiting on it to be processed.

    There's technically two BTTF2 ones, and two BTTF3 ones.

    The first BTTF2 car, the one you saw, is actually the time machine from the first movie, with the plutonium chamber and wheels that do nothing but roll. The second BTTF2 car is the one exclusive to Entertainment Earth. It features the Mr. Fusion chamber and flip down wheels. (via a lever like the SunStar one) The two BTTF3 cars are the 1950's whitewall tires version and rail-ready version with train wheels. To the best of my knowledge the last oen is either not out or just came out.

    All four feature lights and sounds and can fit 3-3/4 inch figures quite well. (many a clone trooper have travelled fourth dimensionally at my house) However only owning one I'm unsure if they're all different.

    I doubt that's what was actually there. The BTTF 1 car is packed in a BTTF 2 package. The only one that has the hover conversion and is an Entertainment Earth exclusive, not available at TRU...unless someone actually returned an EE box to TRU (or for some crazy reason, an EE BTTF 2 version in the #1 box (which is marketed as #2)), it was the first version.

    Any of you fake time travelers care to post any pictures? I know I can look some up online, but it's not the same as home made fun pictures.

    Appreciate the pictures, gentleman.

    I'm just looking for one, so I'd imagine the EE version with the convertible wheels would be the one to own.
