Back to the Future Hoverboard Auction

Remember the Mattel Hoverboard used by Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) in Back to the Future Part II and III? The movie prop is being auctioned off on eBay:

This is one of the hero Mattel Hoverboards used by Michael J. Fox in his most famous role as “Marty McFly” in the Robert Zemeckis classic 80s trilogy, Back to the Future. Two styles of Hoverboard were made for and employed in the film – lightweight boards of styrofoam construction and thick and durable wood-based props – this example is the latter, and is recognized as the best example of all wood Hoverboards to have survived the rigors of filming. The illusion of Michael J. Fox as “Marty McFly” hovering through the air was achieved with practical effects, with actors in rigged harnesses being “flown” via cranes, with special effects taking care of the rest.

Minimum bid? $30,000 - movie nostalgia doesn't come cheap, my friends: Link - Thanks Mickey!
