Good news, fans of TRON, specifically Disney’s reboot, the TRON Legacy because, BrickBros UK’s LEGO Ideas submission, TRON Legacy Light Cycle, has been approved as one of the next LEGO Ideas sets. Wise choice, LEGO Ideas team! For the record, I am not huge fan of TRON Legacy, but I can’t deny that Light Cycle has captured my imagination, regardless how impractical it is. It is just about the coolest fictional motorcycle ever, apart from Akira’s. Continue reading TRON Legacy By BrickBros UK Has Been Approved By LEGO Ideas Team
This is TRON Lightcycle Power Run, a thrill ride available at Shanghai Disneyland Resort. What makes this roller coaster so special is the roller coaster car which, as the ride name suggests, is really motorcycle, the TRON Lightcycle from the rebooted sci-fi flick TRON: Legacy. What this means is, you are exposed as you were riding an actual motorcycle and the exhilaration is further boosted by the fact that the riders will have to lean forward on their chest, in a near-prone position and head forward. There’s even handle bars on each ‘bike’ for you to hold on to your dear life. Continue reading TRON Lightcycle Power Run: Roller Coaster Thrill In Motorbike Style

in every fantasy sci-fi movie, there is the hero and then there’s the necessary villain, and it so happens that villain always look a whole lot cooler (not to mention their firearms), hence its memorabilia tends to look equally cool and collectable. however, i can’t say the same for TRON: Legacy, where evil CLU is no where as cool as his masked enforcer of The Grid. that’s perhaps the reason what make this limited edition Rinzler Maquette so awesome. created by Sideshow Collectibles, in partnership with Quantum Creation FX, this memorable masked enforcer is presented as a maquette that is individually painted and finished.

TRON fever has probably died down by now but that hasn’t stop custom chopper builder Parker Brothers Choppers from giving their original gas-guzzling Lightcycle project an extensive body rework and for some eco-friendly measures, it is given a 96-volt electric motor, juiced by a lithium-ion battery pack that’s said to offer a top speed of more than 100 mph (160 km/h) and a range of 100 miles (160 km) on a single charge. recharging is said to takes only a mere 35-mins. though i am not a true fan of electric vehicles but still, a full-electric version of this neon-light packed two-wheeler is at least closer to its big screen counterpart. there’s no indication of whether the electric-variant of the Lightcycle will be available for purchase.

after three quarter of the year past, the TRON fever should have subsided for most of us but if that fever is still lingering with you, perhaps you would like to check out this latest addition to PDP’s TRON series of Xbox 360 controller. known as the Collector’s Edition R3C0NF1GUR3D Green Xbox 360 TRON Controller, only 750 pieces of this unique examples were made. if you already has the Ice Blue, Yellow and the Orange version, i don’t see why you should miss this – for the completeness sake, i say. as usual, the controller is an officially licensed wired Microsoft controller with rubber-grips and soft touch finish. similarly, this controller is a web exclusive, which means it can only be purchased via PDP official website. the Collector’s Edition R3C0NF1GUR3D Green Xbox 360 TRON Controller retails for $49.90 each and is available now on PDP web store.

yet another PC casemod that goes directly into the coolest mod list. conceived and scratch built by case modder known as Bods Mods, this TRON Lightcycle PC definitely sits right on the top of the coolest of the cool list. the love for the TRON movies inspired Bods Mods to create this beautiful work of art. the custom case was scratch built with lots of time spent on 3D programing to fit the necessary components in while maintaining a relatively small size. it fact, Bods Mods managed to stay within a 40-inches (102 cm) length.

hot on the heels of the limited edition Ice Blue Xbox 360 TRON controller announced last week, is the limited edition Yellow Xbox 360 TRON controller. if you already own the Ice Blue and Orange edition, this could be the perfect round up. though we would like to see one more color to complete the controller collection for a four player game play.
the Yellow edition sports the same design and construction as the Ice Blue edition with that, it is also a disappointing wired controller. i guess if you’re such a huge fan of TRON, that wire shouldn’t bother you much. as with the previous limited edition, this is also an officially licensed product by Microsoft which features rubber grips with soft touch, precision controller parts and vibration support.
only 350 units will be made available and it will be on sale on April 14, at Noon EDT. the PDP Limited Edition Yellow TRON Controller is a “Web Exclusive” and cost $49.99 a pop.
