Back to the Future™ Hoverboard – Available for Pre-Order 3/1 – 3/20

Today is the day it begins! It is almost amazing how on the nose the whole concept of finally being able to own the Hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II really is. After YEARS of waiting for what everyone thought was “right around the corner”, we have gone back to make the future today! Or at least sometime in the fourth quarter of this year when this baby will actually ship. Check out all the particulars about how to pre-order your very own Hoverboard Prop Replica below, and then follow the links to place your order. I am finally going to be able to practice all of those sweet moves I have been planning since I was about  years old. Good thing I have been holding onto that Marty McFly vest for awhile now…

Great Scott, film fans! You won’t need a flux capacitor to fulfill your density because the first ever Hoverboard prop replica from the classic Back to the Future™ trilogy is coming to MattyCollector.com in 2012!

Movie-accurate down to the smallest detail and fully sanctioned by Universal Studios, this is a 1:1 scale model (measures approximately 28″ x 8″ x 3″). Our Hoverboard includes authentic “whooshing” sounds sampled directly from the films and a deco featuring Mattel logos just like in the films. And although full hovering technology isn’t expected until 2015, be assured your Hoverboard will gently glide over most level surfaces (it will not, however, work on water).

Get an EXCLUSIVE Hoverboard Scaled to 6″ Action Figures When You Pre-Order!

Pre-orders are accepted from March 1, 2012, through March 20, 2012 only at MattyCollector.com, with an expected shipping date of November/December 2012. Pre-order during the 3/1-3/20 period and not only will you be guaranteed to get an authentic Hoverboard prop replica, you’ll receive a pre-order exclusive, too… a Hoverboard scaled for 6″ action figures! It’ll hold most Mattel 6″ figures, so your favorites can get in on the futuristic fun, too. The only way to get this totally rad lil’ ride? Pre-order during the 3/1-3/20 period!

We will offer a small quantity for purchase in November/December, however, the price will be higher and you won’t get the mini Hoverboard. Purchasing during the pre-order period is the only way to guarantee you’ll get the Hoverboard prop replica for the pre-order price and the exclusive Hoverboard scaled for 6″ action figures. Don’t miss this window of opportunity, because as far as we know, once it’s over there’s no going back to the… well, you know!

How Pre-Orders Work

When you place a pre-order for your Hoverboard, your bank card will be pre-authorized $120 plus shipping/taxes/fees for each Hoverboard you order. Your bank will “reserve” this amount from your available balance until your Hoverboard(s) ships in November/December, at which time you will be charged. Orders may not be modified or cancelled once they are placed. If you need to change your card information or shipping address, please call Customer Service at 1-877-GO-MATTY. Please note that this product is larger/heavier than the majority of products we sell on MattyCollector.com, so you should expect higher than normal shipping charges. Charges will vary depending on where you are and the shipping method you choose. And yes, the Hoverboard is available for shipment internationally!

IMPORTANT! Hoverboard pre-orders CANNOT be placed in the same transaction with other products. If you would like to purchase products other than the Hoverboard, please complete your Hoverboard pre-order separately.
