Excellent puzzle, Kristen. The solve was really tricky, made my brain hurt. :-)

You really captured that wild-eyed look that made this "Back to the Future" character so fun, portrayed by Christopher Lloyd.

This took a lot of two-way logic to solve. Enough of it that I lost track of what I was doing and so I can't post a hint guide.

Really hard, but such a great payoff!

Good likeness. I had some distractions and got a bit lost, so ended up throwing in a few guesses. At first I didn't get the connection.

I spent about 3 hours fiddling and tweaking. Eventually I just hit "Helper" and the entire puzzle came up, so I published it. Edge logic on the top row helps to get started.

Great image Kristen. :)

One of the fun side effects of this format is that he also looks like Evan Peters, from American Horror Story. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1404239/?ref_=tt_cl_t1

Bit of time travel(look ahead) involved in this one.

"So long as you hit that wire with the connecting hook at precisely eighty-eight miles per hour the instant the lightning strikes the tour... everything will be fine." This is my favorite line that he says out of all three movies.

Awesome!

A lot of edge logic and two way logic for this one. So much that I do not wish to detail it all out. :)

Found to be solvable with moderate lookahead by gator.
