TRON
About this creation






So, I saw Tron Legacy the other day, and felt compelled to build something from it... the Light Cycle seemed like a good choice. It wasn't. This is probably the most illegal thing I've built this year, though I am proud to say it's completely purist - all parts used are 100% official! Now, you'll notice many stickers all over this sucker [particularly the "wheel" sections]; while the stickers [which are mostly these by the way] are critical for holding each set of two old-style wheels together, they're not the only thing holding the wheel sections to the middle section, I assure you!

The thing with this new, re-designed light cycle is that its scale is incredibly deceptive. They look pretty big when they're zooming around, but upon closer examination [thank goodness there's so much reference out there!] they're not that big at all.

Also, this is the first time I've build something using a minifigure as "part" of the vehicle... I usually look at minifigs as extra to be added later, but not with this build. Unfortunately, minifigure's legs do not bend like a humans, so he's not really sitting on the light cycle "perfectly"; I had to pose him how I thought might look best. I didn't want to create a whole new, brick-built pair of legs that have a knee for fear that they'd simply blend in with the vehicle itself and the viewer wouldn't be able to distinguish between the two.

Just a couple words about the picture from me; I hadn't seen the first one, so I can only comment on the second and not compare them. While much of the dialogue was just plain campy, it was a visually stunning sight. The first 30 seconds was really cool in 3-D [I'm talking about the Disney title scene and the main title scene.] And the music, by the incomparable Daft Punk, was perfect. In fact, as I was building this, I had it blasting. I highly recommend buying the soundtrack.

I'm pretty sure that if you're going for a light cycle V2 then you need a small wind sheild, and maybye make the front wheel go out forwards a few studs. Same with a light cycle V1, the front wheel should go out forward a stud or two. Overall a good creation, send me directions and I'll give you credit when I make a Bionicle light cycle for my self moc. sincerley, Ben

I really like your light cycle. Use a lighter backdrop, I can't see the way it's built. Other than that, weel done. Oh, BTW, where'd you get the disc?

@Matt The Backward One: To answer your question about "tape", refer to paragraph #1 above...

I also love you you used two different helmets for the minifigure.

I'd appreciate it if you'd use a white background so I could actually see that you used tape. ...That is tape, right? Or is it actually a LEGO piece?

Do you have any clearer pics? I can't see how it's actually made, cause the section between the wheels looks a bit blurred. A lighter backdrop maybe?

In that case, I'm going to have to put the first TRON in my queue of "I really should watch these" films. I'm so bad with keeping up with movies that I really should watch! ;-)

Nice MOC, excellent look to the whole thing. The film was good -- I must disagree, however, about your assessment of the dialogue. It isn't campy, it's true to the cyberuniverse/reality created in the first film.

Just because the decals were from LEGO...

A visually stunning Moc, and movie! This was aguably one of my favorite movies of the year, apart from the campy dialogue(which you have to see the original to understand why its like that) the visual effects were spectacular! Great idea on the lightcycle!

Excellent techniques, and on such a small scale! Well done!
