As we get closer and closer to the date that Marty McFly went to the future in Back to the Future II (Oct. 21, 2015), it’s disheartening to realize how few of the movie’s psychedelic future predictions have come true. We still don’t have real hoverboards, and nobody’s wearing collanders on their heads. Pepsi, at least, is doing its part to honor this fictional future, by releasing a special line of “Pepsi Perfect” bottles to mimic the slim design seen in Back to the Future‘s vision of 2015.

Pepsi will only be making 6,500 bottles of “Pepsi Perfect,” and they’ll cost $20.15 each (get it?). Bottles will be available for purchase online on Oct. 21, though eager fans will also be able to grab them early at New York Comic-Con. According to a press release, each day at Comic-Con the Pepsi Perfect booth will give out free bottles to the first 200 fans who show up dressed as Marty McFly (puffy red vest, blue jeans, white sneakers, watch, optional hoverboard). Additionally, at 3 p.m. each day, the booth will host games of Wild Gunman (the arcade game Marty plays in the same ’80s cafe where he gets the Pepsi Perfect), where fans can compete for bottles that way.
