Among one of the greatest science fiction trilogies released is the Back to the Future series. True Back to the Future fans have model Delorians, action figures, and other trinkets in their Back to the Future collections, but soon, they’ll have yet another item to add their collections.
Pepsi has announced on Monday its plans to launch a limited edition Pepsi Perfect bottle. The bottle will be modeled off of the futuristic Pepsi bottle that was shown in the Back to the Future II movie, when Marty McFly stopped at the ‘Café 80’s’ café in Hill Valley to rescue his future son from making a criminal mistake.
The bottle will be a limited edition collector’s item, and for this reason, you won’t be able to just pick one up at your local crockery or convenience store. Instead, you’ll have to order online. There’s a catch too; Pepsi is only releasing 6,500 of them for sale, and orders are fulfilled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The Pepsi itself will be regular Pepsi, not some modified futuristic flavor or anything like that, but the bottle will look ultra futuristic. Pepsi notes that the Pepsi Perfect bottle comes with a $20.15 price tag.
Pepsi will also give away an additional 200 bottles of Pepsi Perfect with its specially-designed bottle each morning at Comic Con to the first 200 people that dress up as Marty McFly and visit the Pepsi Perfect booth.
"Pepsi fans asked and we heard them loud and clear," Lou Arbetter, senior director of marketing at PepsiCo said in a statement. "'The 'Back to the Future' trilogy was as big a moment in pop culture history then as it is now, 30 years later."

Not only is Pepsi working on making things shown in the Back to the Future series more of a modern thing, but so is Lexus, which has a working hoverboard that doesn’t require any power to operate, just like the one Marty McFly used to escape bullies.
If you plan on grabbing one of these limited edition Pepsi bottles, you better be ready to order via Amazon on October 21st. The limited amount of bottles to go around means that they won’t last long. Back to the Future is an incredibly popular movie series and they’re sure to sell out quickly.
