Up until recently I had never heard of Tron or what it was about; I still don’t know what the movie is about, but at least I’ve heard of it now and made a post. I was thinking of watching the movie, but after my last post, I know it will be a let-down.
I have compiled a list of some cool and not so cool Tron Legacy inspired merchandise.
The Light Cycle
Disney collaborated with Monster Cable to come up with these cool looking Tron-styled headphones. Not sure if they’re featured in the movie, but they come with the signature blue LED lights and feature “cutting edge sonic technology” and will cost you
Gunnar 3D Glasses
Disney collaborated with eye-wear company Gunnar to create these Tron-branded 3D glasses which are compatible with RealD’s 3-D screens. Now you don’t have to wear those crappy 3D glasses provided by the movie theaters, while still experiencing Tron Legacy just the way god Disney intended it. Cost
Designed to look like the discs carried in the Tron movie, which are used as storage containers-and also act as weapons (this movie is going to be weird!)- the iPod Disc is a docking station for your iPod.
Medicon Action Figures
12-Inch Doll Action Figure
I was pretty excited about writing this article but as I went along my excitement faded, and now I’m starting to think Tron is pretty lame… I was almost ready to trash this post. The fact that Disney seems to be whoring the Tron merchandise pretty badly didn’t help either. I feel like I should have been paid to write this article.
