Tron Legacy Hawks its Wares!
Most of us probably can’t plunk down the $55,000 required to procure a street legal Tron Lightcycle, but there are more than a few budget friendlier Tron consumables for the rabid fan. I love Tron. I wish Disney would send me any and everything Tron related. Unfortunately, they haven’t. So all the enthusiasm after the cut is – for better or worse – homegrown.
I was sad to discover that China Glaze didn’t pull together a collection for the upcoming release of Tron Legacy. I mean, how cool would that have been? Nail polish addicts also love Tron! Anyway, I pulled together some Trontastic polish colors from CG’s existing color roster. For about $5 bucks a pop, you can get your Tron mani/pedi on!
I squealed upon seeing Disney TRON Sam Flynn Light Cycle 4GB USB Drive. How freaking cool is this thing. There is no better way to Tron up your life on a budget than this thing. Amirite??? For $24.99 clearly you’re paying for its Trontasticness rather than its jump driveness.
I realize I’m well beyond the upper age limit for the Tron: Legacy Recognizer Playset, but ME WANT. $18 bucks for all this happiness. You can’t beat that with a stick.
Master electronic composer Wendy Carlos’ score to Tron is sublime and is also available for download and such. I still have my raggedy LP. This album is so beyond fabulous. I’m still trying to resolve my feelings for Daft Punk’s score, which I had some pretty unrealistic expectations about. I love Daft Punk too, so my preference for Carlos’ score is no slight. I couldn’t get through a single workout without “Da Funk”.
