But if you’ve always wanted Marty’s futuristic Nikes from Back to the Future II, and don’t mind never being able to wear them, Hot Toys’ new BTTF II Marty is a cheaper way to go.
According to Hollywood, time machines can come in any shape and size.

It’s almost impossible to think of Back to the Future and not instantly conjure thoughts of Drew Struzan’s iconic poster of Marty McFly stepping out of the Delorean. But we almost had a poster where the amazing time-traveling car wasn’t the star. Hell, it was barely even on the poster.
Now that Marty McFly’s arrived from 1985, it’s time to give Marty a proper greeting: with a porn spoof! After all, porn spoofs are the most important cultural artifacts of our futuristic era. Here’s the first trailer, exclusively at io9! It’s work-safe, apart from some sex toys.
It’s almost second nature for sci-fi to be self-referential—not just to itself, but to the wider pantheon of shows and movies.
