Back To The Future: Hill Valley Clock Tower (1955)


30 Days Left?

Hello there!

I can't believe 11 months of this campaign have come and gone. With only 30 days to go!

I just wanted to take the time and write to say thank you to the people who supported the project up to this point.

I don't think we're going to make the 10,000 votes.  Anything can happen in this last month... but realistically, if we couldn't get 1000 votes after almost a year, it probably won't happen in 30 days. There just isnt enough interest for this kind of project, and that's okay!

Take care my friends. Thanks once again, and see you in the future!



500 Supporters!

Yesterday, we hit . . .

Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word about this project thus far. I really, truly appreciate it.

At the time of writing this, we have about 503 supporters. That's 9,497 votes to go, with 245 days left. An average of 39 votes per day.

Oh boy.  That's a lot per day.

In the beginning we were right on track. But it's slowed down A LOT since them. That's okay. We can keep trying and maybe it'll happen?

I really don't care if my project gets made, but I'd really like to see Lego make a "Hill Valley Clock Tower". So if you get a chance, check out some of these other cool Lego Ideas submissions, and be sure to support them as well:

m.togami's BTTF - Hill Valley Courthouse (mini modular):

OrionPax's: BTTF 2015 HILL VALLEY Courthouse:


I'm an 80s kid, so I'd also like to mention the following projects:

m.togami's BTTF - Doc Brown's GMC Value Van with small Delorean:

BrentWaller's Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man:

LDiEgo's Redemption - Nebulon-B escort frigate:


Well that's all for now. See you all again when we hit 1,000 supporters!

p.s. If we hit 1,000 supporters, I might have a contest with a cool giveaway. Be sure to follow me on here for more details about that ;)



200 Supporters!

Awesome, we now have...

This is pretty heavy. Thank you all so much!



100 Supporters!

Thank you all for your support. I didn't even think i'd hit 88! ;)



Clock Tower with white top and "Weather Experiment" Doc Brown mini figure.

I received a Flickr message, long before this campaign, as to "why I used light bluish gray for the roof part of the Clock Tower since it contrasts the white columns?"  This is true because the building itself only had one colour for anything that wasn't brick.

I don't know? It just seemed to work better with the gray on top.

Tonight, i decided to try a little experiment... to see how the Clock Tower would look with just white and dark orange. I've included some photos:

As you can see, it just doesn't look right. To me anyway. I think I like the way I had it before. What do you guys think? What looks better: White or Bluish Gray? 

Speaking of experiments, I also slapped together a "Weather Experiment" Doc mini figure that I mentioned in my original description. I might make a police officer at some point as well. But for now, here's a rough look at what Doc might look like. I'm sorry I didn't have time to paint him, but he is to scale! ;)

At the time of writing this, we now have 31 supporters. Thank you to everyone who has supported and shared this campaign.

 I will see the future!
