"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Who of us did not dream of zooming around town on a hoverboard after watching a time-traveling Marty McFly busting out tricks in 1989’s Back to the Future 2? Well, we’re still not quite there, scientifically, but you can buy an exact replica from Mattel’s collector-oriented website Mattycollector.com.
For $120 — the pre-order period lasts through March 20th — you can have your very own 28″ x 8″ x 3″ hoverboard that comes with built-in sounds taken directly from the movie. If you take advantage of the early sale period, you’ll also walk away with a tiny hoverboard in scale with 6-inch action figures like Mattel’s DC or Ghostbusters figures. If you don’t want the mini-board or won’t be able to purchase until later in the year, they will also go on sale in November or December, which is when the pre-ordered ones will ship as well.
