    Original Screen Used "Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor" Prop from the DeLorean Time Machine in Back to the Future Part III (Universal, 1990). When Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) returns from the future, the DeLorean's flux capacitor is powered by the "Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor," a handy piece of future tech that, when filled with banana peels, soda and other household trash, creates the necessary 1.21 "Jigowatts" needed to operate the time circuits. This replaced the need of weapons-grade plutonium Doc needed at the beginning of the trilogy. This prop was constructed from a Krups Coffina coffee grinder mounted on a custom, studio-built base that mounted, by hinges, to the time circuitry at the back of the DeLorean. A key plot element from the Back to the Future trilogy. Crafted of plastic and resin which has been studio-distressed to represent exposure to the elements. Single mounting bracket is broken from production use. Exhibiting expected age and wear. In Fine production used condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
