John from our team was happy to review this Playmobil set and said: “I’m quite a big fan of Back To The Future and always loved to see what adventures Marty Mcfly and Doc Brown has in store so I was keen to review DeLorean Back To The Future 70317 set.

Inside there were all of the parts that were needed to assemble the set including the iconic Back To The Future car, Marty McFly, Dr. Emmet Brown and of course, Doc’s dog, Einstein. Assembly was really simple, all of the pieces including the wheels, characters, skateboard and of course a handy set of instructions and putting these together was quickly done. With the instructions, this took very little time to put together and before I knew it, my Playmobil Back to the Future DeLorean set was ready to use.

The car has the feature of lighting up and illuminate the exterior which did require 2 x AA batteries, these are placed underneath the car and once done, the lights along the front and to the side of the car at just the press of a button came alive. The figures heads, arms and legs were posable so it was easy to get them to stand and they didn’t fall over every 2 seconds which I thought was great as this can be really frustrating.
