Tron Electronic Arcade Style PX Previews Exclusive Box Set From DST


Recommended Posts

Right out of Kevin Flynn's arcade comes Diamond Select's box set from the 1982 landmark motion picture, Tron!

The exclusive packaging is inspired by the actual vintage 1980s Tron arcade machine and was designed by David Forrest of Kinetic Underground. This electronic boxset showcases Tron and Sark's final showdown as Flynn plunges into the Master Control Program's core to return to the real world.

The arcade-styled packaging features a full light-up Tron marquee, an authentic replica of the Tron arcade joystick, and 2 different UV light sequences. The multiple flashing multicolored LEDs and ultraviolet lights are activated by either pressing the Player 1 or Player 2 start buttons located on top of the replica arcade control console!

This Tron boxset comes packed with 7-inch collector's scale action figures of Tron, Sark, and Flynn, designed by Yuri Tming and sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios. Each figure features 16 points of articulation with identity disc accessories and UV reflective paint which glows when electronics in the package are activated!

The Tron Electronic Arcade Style Boxset includes batteries and measures over 16 inches tall and over 11 inches wide. You can pre-order this from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.

$120 for fancy packaging?!  These same figures have been released on roughly 5 occasions: with Epic Mickey figures - twice, in different types of packaging; again as singles; then as Walgreen's exclusives; and a SDCC exclusive - and despite all of these re-releases and repaints, Diamond still couldn't figure out a way to release the Recognizer, once, for fans?  What makes these 3 re-releases so special?  Seriously, show the property some actual respect, or give it a rest.  $120 for a new package of figures released literally 3 to 5 times over is just insulting.

The ones that came with the Kingdom Hearts figures are completely different figures. They're based on the CG models that appeared in the video game and are smaller, have less articulation and don't feature actor likeness. The other figures are based on how they apepared in the movie.

I have some nitpicks like the joystick not being translucent but for the most part I think the set is okay........however, I think lack of music is a glaring omission for the price they're asking. Anyone who spent anytime around the arcade cabinet knows that bit of the soundtrack that would play over and over lol.
