1982 Tron Movie-Accurate Figures Are on the Way
Following the success of the animated-style 1982 Tron figures that were sprinkled into the Kingdom Hearts action figure line, Diamond Select is going all-in on movie versions. With deluxe articulation and actor likenesses, the company will be launching the line with Sark (David Warner), Flynn (Jeff Bridges) and Tron (Bruce Boxleitner). The line boasts a high level of articulation and screen-accurate detail. Additionally, each figure comes with a piece of a larger Recognizer vehicle to collect and build.
The above image is the only one we have so far. As such, it’s not yet known if you only have to buy the three figures to get a Recognizer. It could be part of a much larger, long-term line like Ghostbusters that will require buying 12-15 figures. The fact that their initial Flynn comes as the disguised red version rather than classic blue does suggest they’re saving a more familiar variant for a future wave. Nor do we know yet if the sequel is included, although of course that would open up many more possibilities. As would rights to any prior video games or animated spin-offs; we suspect Diamond is hoping this will be their next Ghostbusters.
Here’s the official word:
A Diamond Select Toys Release! Halt, user! For the first time ever, the classic sci-fi movie Tron gets movie-accurate action figures! Each 7-inch scale action figure is based on the look of a character from the 1982 film – Tron, Sark and Infiltrator Flynn in his red infiltration disguise.
Each features approximately 16 points of articulation and interchangeable disc accessories and effects, as well as a piece of a buildable Recognizer vehicle! Packaged in the display-ready Select action figure packaging, with side-panel artwork for shelf reference. Designed by Eamon O’Donoghue, sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios.
Each figure retails for the standard Diamond Select price of $25.
