Oh yeah, looks like Mattel is looking to advance us into the future, now! Mattel said in a post on its collector blog…

“Finally! This totally awesome 1:1 replica of the hover board from the BTTF 2 and BTTF 3 films includes multiple whooshing sounds and will glide over most surfaces,”

For those hoping for a hover board jaunt around their own version of the Hill Valley town square, Mattel stressed that its gadget “does not actually ‘hover’ – check back in 2015 for that feature.”

“Because this is such a high-cost item, there will be a minimum number of orders required to go into production,” Mattel said. “If we don’t receive the minimum orders, won’t go into production and customers will not be charged.” Pricing will be announced later this month.

The hoverboard made its debut in the movie’s 1989 sequel, helping Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) escape from his nemesis Biff Tannen on multiple occasions. It showed up again in the third installment one year later as Marty and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) tried to get an 1885 locomotive up to 88 mph.

The beauty about Mattel making the hover board is that the Mattel label is actually on the film’s version of the hover board prop. Life imitates art!
