Hey there dear readers, Kevin Sutorius here. I’m back with another new series, “Lego to the Movies” where I compare various Lego sets with their movie counterpart. For my first entry, I am covering the brand new Back to the Future Time Machine set, that was just released on July 23rd. What makes this set so special is that a Lego fan designed this and Lego made into a sellable set through their project called Cuusoo. The idea behind Cuusoo (lego.cuusoo.com) is that you submit a design, and if 10,000 people vote for it, the Lego company goes through the legal steps to try to make the set a reality. Additionally, another special feature of this set is for every BTTF set sold, a portion of the revenue goes to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. The set is sold globally starting August 1st through lego.com or participating Lego retail stores.
Everyone and their mother has been eagerly anticipating this summer’s “Opening Day” for movies which Marvel has had on lockdown for the last few years. This year’s starting feature: Iron Man 3.

I have now seen it thrice and have had ample time to break it down for you from the perspective of a truly dedicated comic book movie nerd.
