Fools Paradise is now taking pre-orders for its latest pop-culture mash-up, BTTFool. Limited to 498 pieces and available for $328 direct from their online store, the new vinyl release is a clever mix of Back To The Future and Dragon Ball-Z. In addition to the Marty and Doc Brown relationship, BTTFools also plays with the fact that the ‘future’ versions of Trunks (Marty) and Vegeta (Doc Brown) are in fact, father and son. The other clever aspect of this design, is that it seamlessly incorporates their previous coin-op ride series via the Delorean ride with the brand’s recent focus on stylized re-interpretation of not one, but two pop culture universes at once (Super Mario + The Professional & Super Mario + Forest Gump).
Having had a chance to see the prototypes in person, one thing that stands out is their impressive size. Doc Fool stands almost 14″ tall and due to Fools Paradise’s exaggerated, muscular style, is quite bulky. In fact, most of the recent Fools Paradise releases have a surprisingly large scale that really needs to be seen to be appreciated. Their oversized profiles add considerably to the over-the-top nature of Fools Paradise’s recent releases. So much, fun.
