BTTF II: 2015 Mystery Prop!

USA Today posted this still taken (presumably) just after the hoverboard chase:

Still

Now, I’m no expert, but what is the thing Terry’s holding in his hand? It’s not his “thumb a hundred bucks” thing; this prop looks enormous (relatively), and I have no idea what it is. It doesn’t look like a parking meter. It’s not Griff’s bat, or the little girl’s hoverboard handlebars … Any guesses?

BTTF II: 2015 Mattel Hoverboards!

“There’s something very familiar about all this…”

Hover Board

Early storyboards showed this as a Swatch-branded hoverboard. Other concept art showed amn Airwalk hoverboard, and surfboard-sized hoverboards (which can be seen briefly being carried by an extra early in the film).

In this frame (above) you can clearly see the (green) Velcro used to hold the lightweight foam boards to the actors’ shoes when hanging from the wire rigging to film the ‘hovering’ shots.

This still proves the existence of the rare and elusive orange Mattel hoverboard (undr the other child’s foot):

And I think that’s a CD player on her head.
