This is heavy: plastic-brick magnate Lego has given the official nod to a fan-built "Back to the Future" DeLorean set, confirming that the nerd-pleasing time machine set will go on sale next year.
The small but perfectly formed toy was chosen to enter the official Lego pantheon after it received more than 10,000 votes on Lego Cuusoo, a Kickstarter-style site where brick-assembling enthusiasts can submit their dream kits to the bigwigs in Denmark.
The final design of the set isn't confirmed yet, as Lego says it's still in talks with Universal over the upcoming product. Fingers crossed the set that hits shelves is faithful to the fan-designed original, which features a tiny Lego Marty McFly and Doc Brown, as well as the DeLorean's famous gull-wing doors.
