Back To The Future is one of those beloved movies (and franchises) that have created generations and generations of fans. The concept is a perfect blend of science fiction and comedy. Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd’s portrayal of Marty McFly and Doc Brown are characters that are so beloved you’ve probably seen adaptations of them and didn’t even know it (we’re looking at you, Rick and Morty). And now, it looks like a musical adaptation of this classic film is coming to Broadway!  

So because of this insane news, we decided to put together a list of 14 cool Back To The Future must have items that any superfan will absolutely love owning. Buckle up, folks, because “where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” 

  • 1) The DeLorean Schematic T-Shirt


    “Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?” Yep, one of the best scenes in the entire movie has to be the first time we see the DeLorean time travel with Einstein the dog in the car. This t-shirt is super cool because it features schematics of the DeLorean, including spots where it notes the 88mph requirement for time travel and the flux capacitor.

  • 2) Back To The Past T-Shirt

    I am all for funny t-shirts. Especially ones that are just kind of witty. This Back To The Past tee is not only inspired by Back To The Future with the keyboard key figures looking like Marty and Doc after the DeLorean shoots by them for the first time, but the keys that they are, are the keyboard shortcut people can use to delete things. Get it… Back To The Past? It’s genius. You can grab this in sizes small through 5XL.

  • 5) Back To The Future TV Mug

    I love cool mugs like this. And if you’re a mug collector and a huge fan of this movie then you’re going to want to add this to your cart immediately. Not only does the mug feature a cool retro TV design, but it is also heat-changing. When the mug heats up the DeLorean can be seen!

  • 14) Back To The Future Neon Sign

    We wanted to save one of the coolest items for last. This is a neon Back To The Future sign, and it is a rare find.
