Finally, A LEGO Tron Light Cycle Is On Its Way!
Sadly, The LEGO Tron Light Cycle Won’t Be In Time For Christmas…
Coming Soon: LEGO are putting together a Tron Light Cycle kit for release in the New Year! LEGO isn’t just for kids, you know? Or so I keep telling myself. When the weather makes going for a ride more of a chore than it should be, why not get yourself some Lego to pass the time? And why not get the Lego Tron Light Cycle? It does combine two of the best things in the world: LEGO and Tron, right?
APPROVED: The LEGO Tron Light Cycle
LEGO Ideas is a platform that takes fan submitted LEGO build ideas and, should they get enough public support, turns them into real life model kits for consumers. This time, it was a model built by BrickBrosUK that managed to get the LEGO seal of approval. It did face some stiff competition from a The Office themed kit – which would be brilliant – and other tough competitors like a Venetian House or the fearsome Medieval Watermill (check out the video below for the final shortlist). We felt that the best entry won though. Obviously.
Real Tron fans might be disappointed to learn that the LEGO Tron Light Cycle will be of the newer model seen in Tron : Legacy rather than the old school version, but either way, it’s a Light Cycle, and if we know anything about motorcycles from the movies, it’s that the Tron Light Cycle is arguably one of the most iconic machines to grace the silver screen. According to LEGO, the kit will look very similar to the prototype that you can see in the images here, though we expect to see a few changes as it goes into production. It seems like the toy industry is very similar to the motorcycle industry in that respect. It should be hitting stores in the New Year, so keep your ear to the ground for a solid release date.
In the meantime, here’s what LEGO had to say about it all: “The tron light cycle is based on the Disney : Tron Legacy film and consists of a tron light cycle with a user minifigure Sam Flynn it also comes with a Grid base to mount the light cycle on for display. The light cycle allows a minifigure to easily fit into and clip onto the handles, the light cycle its self has a console in front of the user, two handle bars and detailing down the sides, there is also a power stream behind connected to the light cycle. The Sam Flynn minifigure comes in a tron suit with helmet and disc connected on the back of the minifigure for added detail. The light cycle can easily be mounted on to the Grid base with two connection points and the base has the Grid effect with black and trans-blue tiles creating a tron feel and has a medium azure trim for finish.”
