Nice. I picked up Black Guard, Rinzler, Sam Flynn, and Kevin Flynn's lightcycle. They were the only ones left (last four figures) at the Burbank TRU. This property is going to make a lot of money for Disney.
I opened up Tron Legacy Rinzler and he is just as great a figure as the Black Guard.
I have to admit that I'm not too sure if this line will do well. Collectors alone won't make it a successful line as kids need to buy the product as well. However, there's obviously no nostalgic pull for them and so it might just be another toy line of guys in high tech suits, just like Iron Man 2 figures. Which do not sell all that well.
I may want more Rinzlers to use as Daft Punk figures.
That diecast is really nice, btw. The translucent orange parts are plastic obviously but the rest of the body is diecast metal and it feels quite heavy.
I asked Spin Masters. No on the Recognizer. The toys would have to sell AMAZINGLY WELL for it to be made, and even then, won't be for awhile.
If the Legacy toys do very well, they will have plans to do the vintage movie toys and THEN after that, a Recognizer might happen. More likely it would happen if there's a sequel to Tron Legacy.
It's often rare for movie toys to do that well past the release of the film. Transformers can do it because there's already a built-in following of transforming robot toys. G.I.Joe Rise of Cobra didn't have the same fortune.
And those die cast look awesome! $3.99 is about right because the SDCC exclusive light cycle was $5.
Now I'm off the hook for not buying him at SDCC though worst case scenario, I could have bought the import version.
I am hear that the Rodimus Prime one that Hasbro will do will not come with his trailer. He may come with his Targetmaster Firebolt exspet. Not to sure if I want Rodimus or Hot Rod if it is going to be him with his Targetmaster. So if this is ture maybe u better get the Japan's verison when he comes out.
