A Better Look at the Tron: Legacy Figures



?I posted that video of Spinmaster’s Tron: Legacy figures lighting up yesterday, but other than said lighting, we really didn’t get to see much of the toy. Obviously, here’s a much better shot of the Sam Flynn figure above. While I’m disappointed at the lack of chest and leg articulation, I understand it probably would have been impossible to include the light-up mechanism with it, and I judge this a more than fair trade. I’ll just buy one Flynn to stand on my desk and light up, and one on the lightcycle. Works out pretty well for both me and Spinmaster, I think. (Via ToyNewsI)
