The LEGO Ideas Tron Light Cycle set is pretty nifty (even if the movie was a let down). But once you've built it the action is sorta over right? I mean they just sit there stuck to their base. Not nearly as exciting as the movie right? Well consummate tinkerer and all around mechanical wizard JK Brickworks wasn't satisfied with that, so he designed a dynamic display for his cycles, and he's shared how on his website.
A digital frontier...
Me and special guest James Morr (SpastikChuwawa) are going on the game grid today. We're going to take on Master Control Program and build the new LEGO Ideas Tron Legacy set live!
Join us at 2:00pm PST, and have your quarters ready.
With the upcoming LEGO Ideas Tron set everyone's got the classic 80's movie (and it's somewhat recent sequel) on the mind. Builder JoePerez_Lego_Artist was so inspired he built this amazing Light Cycle and rider. This shot looks like a pretty good image for the poster of the movie, ready for some 80's action.
This is a fairly unconventional build, most of the parts aren't attached to each other, so it's more of an "arrangement". And those flexible Technic connectors are under considerable strain, therefor "illegal". But I don't care about any of that, it's awesome! So simple, yet so effective. It was a challenge to photograph, but Grantmaster's diligence paid off, it's a spectacular little vignette.
I personally didn't care for the sequel to Tron, at least not the movie as a whole. I still listen to the soundtrack, it's brilliant. And the art direction was top notch, the movie is an end to end eyegasm. One of the stand out designs was the new light cycles, like this outstanding rendition by MortalSwordsman.
