“Greetings. The Master Control Program has chosen you to serve your system on the Game Grid.”

1982’s Tron and it’s 2010 sequel Tron: Legacy have produced outstanding LEGO models over the years and I thought it was high time to compile the best examples into a single post. The films might not be the strongest in terms of logical plotting or dialogue, but they are inspirational eye-candy for many sci-fi builders. This list is far from comprehensive and you, constant reader, have no doubt seen many of them before. If I have omitted any key models in the genre, please let me know in the comments and I’ll add them to the post. So put on your Daft Punk soundtrack, grab your glow-in-the-dark Frisbee and get ready for some action.

For many fans of Tron, it all starts with the light cycles, like this one from Ewok in Disguise….

Some of the most interesting models inspired by the films have nothing to do with personal conveyances at all, like this amazing sculpture of Quorra by the obscure new builder Ochre Jelly.

Even the LDD guys get into the act, like tronlegacy.

No coverage of LEGO Tron models would be complete without a few examples from one of my favorite builders, the master of the black-light, Catsy.

So what did I miss? Just remember that the photography has to be up to snuff, and leave me a link in your comment.

    Yay TRON! Like you said, the movies weren’t perfect, but I absolutely love the visual aesthetic, especially of Legacy. Probably my favorite visual style of any sci-fi universe.

    I wasn’t even aware of a couple of these models. Also thanks for the feature! :)

    Great post Keith, thanks for representing so many different builders and styles. It’s nice to have so many models collected in one place (and not just current builds); it makes for a post that moves beyond a simple skim and glance. ~DK
