A set of flux capacitor components from Robert Zemeckis' sci-fi comedy adventure Back to the Future. Described by Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) as "what makes time travel possible", the flux capacitor was the central element of the DeLorean time machine.
The set comprises two of the device's three components, with the top-right component almost complete and the top-left component missing its glass housing. The components are displayed in a custom-made framed display containing a 9V battery pack on the right side that, when powered, illuminates its contents. The components display some wear from production use and age, including very minor scuffing and scratches. Dimensions: 15 cm x 58.5 cm x 52.5 cm (6" x 23" x 20 3/4")
