Back To The Future Delorean DMC-12 Time Machine
After I saw LEGO's new set, and how incorrect it looked, I just had to build it, just to show it could be done better ;) It's built to the same scale just to make it a fair match ;) I think i may build one of these in my usual 1:20 scale, and later build it IRL, as it's a car I would very much like in my collection :-)
About this creation
Here is my version of the new DeLorean Time Machine set The front looks at least a little better IMO, the back, from what i can see, is tons better, and the side looks okay too. The back is my favorite view on it. Functions are tires that can fold down into flying mode, and gullwing doors (BTW the set didn't do the gullwing doors right like this has, they don't bring up part of the roof as well)

BTTF Delorean Time Machine

Minifig scale BTTF Delorean DMC12 time machine

ACTUAL SET, NOT MINE



I've added the LDD file so you can build this instead of the official LEGO set. You will also two (or more for more accuracy) strings (LEGO or not) for the wires that are supposed to be on the side, LDD is useless for this stuff.


EDIT

For Halhi 141 here is all three versions:



BTTF 1-3 Delorean Time Machine

Very simple to switch over between versions. Still, using all parts added to switch, it uses LESS parts than the actual set, 64 less parts, (if you added the minifigs and skateboard from the set, even less if you don't)

After reading the review on eurobricks, I can say that I like the set much more than the original, even the hood looks way better...

Quoting Ryan Link Definitely an improvement over the set in some areas. I still wish they would have used the sloped brick for the front. Oh well. Although, after seeing the images in TBB's review, I think that it's not nearly as bad as the box image indicates. Either way, nice job on this Delorean, well done!
Thanks! Yeah, the box art made it look even worse!

Quoting Halhi 141 That's interesting. Somehow I thought the set had way less pieces than it does, I thought it had around 250..
I was suprised about it too, that was about the same as i thought it looked like.

Quoting Halhi 141 I think it's unfair to say that it's 'better' than the set, when you must consider the limitations Lego had to work with. They had to make it sturdier than this, more parts efficient (less pieces in order to drive down the price) and be able to easily modify it into the version from all of the movies. While your model perhaps does look better (though I still dislike the hood), it just doesn't fulfill all of Lego's design standards. And the reason they had to redesign the cuusoo model was for the same reasons: avoid illegal techniques, make it sturdier, allow it to be modified into all three versions... So perhaps the real set isn't amazing, but it isn't bad either, considering what they had to do with it...
Some good points, This should be very sturdy (though probably not quite as sturdy as the LEGO model), I did test all bits, and they all felt sturdy, i just didn't have enough left from working on my Cobra to do the whole thing, I did mention it uses less parts, And this can be modified to all three movies. Thanks! This doesn't use any illegal techniques. I didn't say the set was bad, i said it looked bad, I think they could have done things to make it look better with still keeping LEGO's standards. And keep in mind that, even though it's LEGO, the fact that very, very few kids have ever even heard of the movie, and it's probably gonna be mostly the dad that gets the set. And he probably won't use it as much for play (though this does play well)

Quoting Nils O. Very cool and A LOT better than the official set! Great job! :-))
Thanks! I was hoping it would turn out okay, and it seems to have turned out very good, I haven't built an 8 wide in ages, back when i wasn't good at all at building LEGO cars.

Quoting Mihe Stonee first - you did a great job on this car getting the nessesary details right i think! and thanks for sharing the file ;-) i'll look for it. second thanks for the link. and to say here my opinion it's really a shame that Lego create such a nice idea like cuusoo - but then take only the idea and make a new model instead... people are voting to get the model which they see and not a different one...
Thanks! You're welcome! You're welcome again ;)! I agree, I can understand a few small modifications, but they seem to have completely redesigned the whole thing!

It definitely looks awesome! Better than the set? Uh yeah. Too bad LEGO didn't make the car how the original design team made it when they were gathering supporters for the set :/ because it was also good.

Thank you! :D
Quoting Achintya Prasad Spiffy rendering, spiffy car! Good work! Was the LEGO set just a CUUSOO set, or was it created by LEGO designers?
Thanks! it stated as one, but the offcial model seems to be a complete redesign of the Cuusoo version.

Yours is definitely better than the one in the official set, which, I agree, is somewhat disappointing.
