On the Other Side of the Screen, It Looks Like a Light Cycle

The title, of course, refers to quote from the original Tron: “On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy.” For all of us who have been drooling over the fantastic-looking trailer for the sequel, Tron Legacy, here’s something else to torture us for the remainder of the year until the movie finally hits theaters. A life-size model of one of the light cycles to be used in the movie was caught on camera recently, and it looks absolutely wicked. It was made by toy manufacturer Spin Master, which has the contract for the toys and action figures associated with the new Tron.

We haven’t been this excited about a new movie vehicle since the Tumbler. Sadly, Spin Master doesn’t plan to sell this model. And unfortunately, we probably won’t see any real-world counterparts anytime soon. You will, however, be able to buy toy versions of it closer to the movie’s release.We know what we want for Christmas already.
