TRON: Legacy is out at midnight Thursday and if there’s one thing the film is lacking, it’s merchandise. Seriously though, while there are a ton of different TRON toys and tech out there right now, the one thing we haven’t seen yet are bad ass, limited edition posters. Mondo is happy to oblige. They’ve just unveiled a pair of glow in the dark posters by one of our favorite artists, Eric Tan, which will go on sale on Mondo’s site Thursday December 16 at a random time. See the full sized images and more after the jump. Read More »

Cool Stuff: Old-School ‘Tron’ Motorcycle Helmet

If I was 14 and a motorcycle enthusiast, this helmet would be high on my Christmas wishlist. Or if I thought I might grow into the Tron Guy (this could still happen) I’d pick this up as an investment.

Point is: original Tron circuit pattern designs adorning an old-school open-face motorcycle helmet is a pretty nifty thing. Be prepared to fork over a lot of cash if you want one, however. Read More »

LOL: Inside The Game

The computer world has evolved a lot since we last entered the grid in the 1982 film Tron. But the result, Tron Legacy, isn’t accurate compared to today’s popular technologies. Jeremy Vinar and Mike Fahmie imagine what the inside of the game should really look like in Tron Legacy.

Okay, this is so frigging cool. Parker Brothers Choppers in Florida have made ten working, life size Light Cycles just like the ones in TRON: Legacy. They don’t leave a trail of light or anything like that, and it doesn’t look like they can actually turn, but they’re tangible and not on The Grid so that’s good enough for us. Oh, and you can buy one if you have $55,000 to spare.
