Back to the Future Cuusoo Lego Set

Picked up the new Cuusoo Lego set when it was only $35 on amazon. Really great set. Took me about an hour to build it. It also comes with a really nice booklet on the history of the car and movie along with a ton of step by step pictures. I don’t think i have purchased legos since i was in grade school. With my allowance. Crap, now i may have to go get some more…
