October 12, 2010
Developed for Both Male and Female Fans, TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suits Celebrate Film’s Debut This December


TORONTO, Ontario, Canada (Oct. 11, 2010) UD Replicas takes motorcycle riders and movie fans into the world of Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming highly-anticipated holiday release TRON: LEGACY, in which digital warriors ride spectacular lightcyles, and the rules of reality don’t apply, with its magnificently detailed TRON: LEGACY “Movie Replica” Motorcycle Suits, which are now available for purchase online at www.UDReplicas.com.

Designed under license from Disney Consumer Products and painstakingly handcrafted from leather, the TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suits replicate the awe-inspiring look of the costumes worn on screen by heroic Sam Flynn  and Quorra.  The TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suits mark the first time UD Replicas has offered designs for both men and women.

“Our designers have worked closely with Disney to ensure that we capture the absolutely incredible look of TRON: LEGACY,” said UD Replicas owner David Pea. “The reaction we got to these suits at Comic-Con was overwhelming, and we’re very excited to be able to deliver them to fans before this amazing film opens in theaters.”

Each TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suit is created from hand-crafted leather that features a silicone hexagonal print that matches the highly detailed designs seen in the film.  To protect wearers, all TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suits incorporate removable CE-approved body armor in the forearm and elbow, shoulder, along the back spine, and in the knee, shin and thighs areas.  The suits also feature extremely light-sensitive reflective accents to create the ethereal, computer-generated glow so closely identified with the world of TRON.

UD Replicas has also designed a leather-encased “identity disc” that is molded into the back of each TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suit.  All suits feature heavy-duty stretch Spandex inserts and intricate leather detailing, while the female Quorra suit jacket offers design features that enhance the female form.  Both the Sam Flynn and Quorra TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suits will be limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide.

UD Replicas, the officially licensed division of Universal Designs, is offering its TRON: LEGACY Motorcycle Suits exclusively online.  The TRON: LEGACY jacket, pants, gloves and boots can be purchased separately or as a complete set for $995 (U.S.) for the male version and $899 for the female version. Payment may be split into three equal installments by following ordering instructions at www.udreplicas.com.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
