Something new is here for Back to the Future fanatics to spend their money on. Recently, franchise stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd had been making fans curious by teasing a “heavy” announcement coming soon. It was clear they were speaking about something related to Back to the Future, but fans could only guess what they were talking about until it was later revealed that a new webstore was in the works. The site has now been updated to reflect products that are available for purchase as part of Fox and Lloyd’s official Back to the Future merchandise collection.
This collaboration is for the fans,” Fox said of the new shop. “We kept hearing they wanted more options to celebrate their Back to the Future devotion and we thought these items were perfect. Enjoy it. Heavy.”

Even if one doesn’t wish to purchase any of the products, the website is still worth visiting just to see images of Fox and Lloyd reuniting to model the different T-shirts that they have available. Along with various shirts, there is also a red cap embroidered with the name “McFly,” as well as an embroidered vest that looks similar to the one Marty wears in the films. There’s even a special version of the vest that comes with an actual Michael J. Fox autograph, though that’ll run you $350. You might want to act quickly if interested, as a $500 poster bearing the signatures of both Fox and Lloyd has already sold out.
Unfortunately, there are no hoverboards for sale, even though Back to the Future Part 2 promised we’d all be using them regularly by this point. To see what is available, head on over to BacktotheFuture.shop.
Back to the Future Is a Perfect Movie According to Many Fans
Like the report of a fan spending $75,000 for a Back to the Future VHS tape earlier this year, his is just another sign of just how popular Back to the Future remains all these years later. The movie trilogy has long been very highly revered, and even now that we are in the age of reboots and remakes, Back to the Future has been left untouched by Hollywood. It’s not for a lack of trying, as the brand would certainly make money, but many fans are adamant that the films should be left alone as there’s no way to improve upon them. Even its filmmakers are against Hollywood ever giving Back to the Future another installment.
“We told a complete story with the trilogy,” co-creator Bob Gale previously told Collider. “You don’t want to see Back to the Future without Michael J. Fox. People say, ‘Well, do it with somebody else.’ Really? Who are you going to get? All you’re gonna do is beg comparisons to the originals, and you’re not going to match up.”
Should the franchise ever get rebooted, Fox has suggested that it should follow female characters to put a spin on the story. In any case, we probably won’t see a reboot anytime soon, but that’s okay for the fans who will always be able to go back in time by watching the original movie.
