I’ve always wanted a hoverboard since watching the movie in 1989. I’ve tried replicating it as a kid with cardboard and fishing line to give it the hover illusion. Failed miserably. Fast forward to Comic Con 2012, I was near the Mattel booth when they announced Mattel members get first dibs on a replica licensed hoverboard. It looked great! But not $200 great for a pink plastic board that didn’t really do much but make sounds from the soundbox. Fast forward to 2014, Halloween costumes released a Universal Studios licensed replica. Fair enough. It looks to be the same base as the Mattel version they released 2 years prior minus a few details. No sound box, no “hole” for the handlebars, and more importantly, no Mattel branding logos. It was 1/4 the price of the Mattel version.
Thanks for my friend Edwin, he provided me some Mattel decals to add to the hoverboard to make it closer to the Mattel replica
I used screen caps to find the closest accurate placement on the hoverboard
It looks wayyyyy better in my opinion!
