For Back to the Future fanatics, what could be cooler than a pair of Nike Mags? How about the Mattel hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II that Marty uses to elude Biff and his crew of thugs? Mattel announced at Toy Fair 2012 in New York that it would release a 1:1 a "movie accurate" replica hoverboard that even includes the hole that was left when Marty ripped out the handlebar pole. While it won't actually hover, it's said to "glide" over most surfaces (but not water) while it makes various whooshing noises. Mattel is taking pre-orders from March 1st through March 20th, with delivery scheduled for November or December 2012,  but there is a catch: because the hoverboard is such a high-cost item, the device won't go into production unless a minimum number of orders is placed. Pricing is expected to be revealed later this month. via: SlashGear
