A month or so we learned of Mattel's plan to release screen-accurate, electronic replicas of the company's iconic Hoverboards - as seen in BACK TO THE FUTUREs II and III (details HERE).
A few weeks ago, the folks over at Beyond the Marquee posted a video covering the painstaking research and processes Mattel is bringing to bear to make this Hoverboard replica as accurate as possible (you can find said video HERE).
Now, the folks at Beyond the Marquee have a new video, this one centering on BTTF producer/co-writer Bob Gale's recent journey to Mattel. Seems he took in some actual Hoverboard props in for reference and measurement, and got a look at the replica as a work-in-progress. BTTF effects supervisor Michael Lantieri also appears to discuss Mattel's undertaking.
Pre-orders for the Hoverboards will end in a few days, but you can still book yours HERE.
Here's the new video...
