LEGO announces new Tron: Legacy Light Cycle set

LEGO announces new Tron: Legacy Light Cycle set

The 1982 film TRON has become something of a cult classic.  With special effects that were far ahead of its time and a story that was ripe for a follow-up, it took almost thirty years for the film to receive any sort of continuation.  Since the 2010 release of TRON: Legacy, the franchise has grown to include video games, televisions series, and even a few tie-in comics to boot.  While the film sequel wasn't as big a hit as it probably should have been, it brought the franchise back into the pop culture forefront.

Today, our friends at LEGO have revealed that a brand new set based on TRON: Legacy will be released soon.  Now die-hard fans can take part in some sweet light cycle races and duel with identity discs right in their own homes.
