Availability: October 2020

Marty and Biff are packaged in window boxes with movie inspired artwork on the front and sides, images of the figures on the back along with a description. The window flap also has an image of the figure, and he is protected in a plastic tray along with his accessories.

 

Marty McFly comes in his 1985 inspired vest and denim jacket, along with a plaid shirt, dark blue jeans, and white sneakers with red stripes on the sides and back. The outfit looks amazingly detailed, and even includes paint washes and realistic folds to me it more realistic. He also has a black watch on his left wrist, which also has a white face. His head sculpt came out great, with an excellent likeness and facial details that almost makes him look exactly as he appeared on screen, and features the likeness of actor Michael J Fox.

The figure comes with an assortment of accessories inspired from a number of scenes from the film, including a skateboard, a backpack, a guitar, an alternate sunglasses head and 5 interchangeable hand sculpts. The skateboard has some nicely done paint applications on both sides, along with rotating wheels, and Marty can stand on it with one or two feet. One of the hand sculpts can be used to play the strings of the guitar, as its holding a piece so he can play. The backpack also looks realistic, with a great sculpt and deco that makes it also look realistic.

 

Biff Tanner also looks amazing and comes in his Enchanment Under the Sea Dance outfit, and features the likeness of actor Tom Wilson. He comes in a light grey jacket with black on the sleeves and around the collar, a white undershirt, dark blue jeans, white socks, and black sneakers. The head sculpt also looks incredibly sculpted and painted and this is another great likeness. He comes with another head sculpt with an open mouth, and you can see the interior details of the mouth as they did a great job on this as well.

Included with Biff is the the Gray’s Sports Almanac, a case with magazines inside, the dance flyer, Western Auto Sales receipt, and 5 interchangeable hand sculpts.

Overall, NECA’s Back To The Future line is one of this years best offerings in the toy industry, and even made our Top 10 list from a few weeks ago. The likenesses and great attention to detail makes this line the best offerings for the franchise to-date, and comes just in time for the 35th Anniversary of the first film. This is a great line that every BTTF fan should own.
