That’s our way of saying it’s gone, vanished, temporarily out of stock and unavailable to buy at LEGO.com. You can’t even snag it on back order right now, which means it’s useless for reaching either of this week’s brand new gifts-with-purchase, 40529 Children’s Amusement Park and 40533 Cosmic Cardboard Adventures. (Bad luck, too – it was perfectly-priced for grabbing them both.)
The incredible 3-in-1 rendition of Back to the Future’s modified DeLorean originally launched on April 1, then immediately sold out within a matter of hours. It didn’t return to LEGO.com in the UK and Europe until May 11, when it was available on back order, but all that supply has now been snapped up only five days later.
It’s not difficult to see why 10300 Back to the Future Time Machine is proving so popular, but apparently it was difficult for the LEGO Group to foresee such an eventuality – presumably the company’s bean counters didn’t have access to their own time machine – because the current supply simply can’t keep up with demand.
If you’re itching to pick up the 1,872-piece set, which includes minifigures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown, but have missed out again, keep an eye on Brick Fanatics for the first word on when it’s back in stock. In the meantime, hit play on the video above to check out our verdict on the set, or head over to our YouTube channel.
