The Mini Flux Capacitor has been engineered to be as screen accurate as possible despite its tiny size. It is approximately 1.7 inches tall and 1.2 inches wide. With an optional keychain attachment, the Mini Flux Capacitor can either be displayed proudly on a collector's shelf or on a key ring. A button on the back triggers tiny fluxing LED lights, and a second press of the button initiates the "time travel effect." Containing approximately 30 individual parts, the Mini Flux Capacitor has been intricately and meticulously designed to please Back to the Future fans and collectors.
"Back to the Future was the most mind-blowing movie of my childhood, and in my opinion one of the best movies ever made. With that and my lifelong love of miniatures, I can't think of a cooler mini collectible than the iconic Flux Capacitor," said Andy Bailey, founder, Mad Geek Collectibles.
"When Marty McFly used the quote, 'If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.', I'm pretty certain he was actually talking about the Mini Flux Capacitor team for their tireless efforts over the past three years in bringing this unique product to market. Soon, the power of the Flux Capacitor can fit inside your pockets (as long as you don't turn them inside out in 2015!)," said Stephen Clark, BacktotheFuture.com Executive Director.
Mad Geek Collectibles is consulting with Bob Gale, co-creator and producer of Back to the Future on the Mini Flux Capacitor as well as with Joe Walser, head of the Official "A" car DeLorean Time Machine Restoration, to ensure detailed product accuracy.
"Great Scott! This is the perfect key ring for all Back to the Future fans, and now I can actually say, 'where did I put my flux capacitor?'" said Bob Gale, Back to the Future co-creator and producer.
Mad Geek Collectibles is using Kickstarter.com, an all-or-nothing crowd funding method where projects must be fully funded or no money changes hands. Fans can go to www.kickstarter.com for detailed information on the 1:10 scale Mini Flux Capacitor, now available to preorder for 30 days only.
