Action figures, 1/50 scale vehicles, light-up lightcycles (!) - this stuff looks pretty schweet. (They have some fuzzy pix over at BBTS)

Anyone hear any advance buzz about the movie? I hope it doesn't turn into another Speed Racer....

Looks interesting so far. Great cast, great viral campaign.

I'm looking forward to it. And I like what I'm seeing so far from SpinMaster.

The con exclusive vintage light up figure is a think of beauty.

I read someplace that the lightcycles will glow different colors depending on which action figure you stick in there.

(maybe ToyFare mag?)


That is pure and unadulterated AWESOME. :D

I saw one of the diecast bikes and the frisbee version of the disk at TRU last night.

Apparently Disney stores have a bunch of this stuff in as my brother overpaid to get the 4" figures there tonight. $10.50 a figure is a bit much.


Has anyone heard of a second series of the basic figures coming out? I'm surprised they don't have a Quorra figure out.

My TRU had a bunch of stuff this weekend, so me and my son emptied them out. Didn't get the frisbee/Identity disk though...

I've now spotted these at TRU and the Disney Store. Haven't gotten around to picking anything up yet but I will. I'll be sticking to the 3.75" figures and vehicles, although the 6" talking figures are pretty spiffy.

Saw everything at my local TRU last night (half hidden behind the Megamind toys, shouldn't that be the other way around?)

The Light Cycle and Car are so awesome. The "hologram" faces on the figures are a bit disconcerting but a very cool feature.

I might have to buy these ... (but I'll wait for the movie before I make the final decision .. which in all likelihood will be too late)

Saw the whole line in my local Target today.

they had the 3.75" figures for $9.99
The 8" light-up face Sam I think they were $15?
and the 12" Sam for $40

They had both light-cycles and the car thing
They also had the light and sound disk, diecast, launchers and the racing set.

The Diecast Recognizer is really the only thing that appealed to me-- let me know when we get to a 3-3/4 Olivia WIlde in skintight suit- and then maybe Ill pick one up.. :mrgreen:

TRU.com has them listed at 7.99 (but no Kevin Flyyn or Black Guard) its a bit easier to swallow but the shipping does balance it out. Light Cycle is still listed at $14.99 so I wonder about the Price discrpancy from Target and K-Mart.

I saw everything at Target over the weekend but stayed strong and kept my wallet in my pocket. Very cool despite the terrible Jeff Bridges likeness. I love gimmicky 3.75" toys!

I noticed that all of the figures have some kind of port on their backs that can plug in to the different vehicles. Anybody know what that does? Is it just the changing lights as mentioned above or does more happen?

Now that I've gotten to look at them in detail, to be honest, I'm not all that impressed. As much as I love the original Tron movie, I just don't like the designs in this one very much. As such, I'm skipping all of the characters (I've noticed that almost *ALL* of the ones in stores have had their batteries worn out anyhow, I wouldn't touch them at any price), I've only gotten the diecast mechanics figures (lightcycles and recognizer, etc). I hope it's going to be a good movie, I just can't say I care much for the way it looks at the moment.
