LEGO just announced the release of their official Back to the Future set designed by Masashi Togami of Team BTTF. Togami will donate all of his 1% royalty from the sales of the set to the Michael J. Fox foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The set will be available in stores towards the end of 2013, and will include the DeLorean, Doc, and Marty.
