Tron Legacy Light Cycle is the next LEGO Ideas set to go to production! [News]

Tron Legacy Light Cycle in Minifigure scale designed by BrickBros UK is the next LEGO Ideas project to become an official set next year! The announcement was made on the LEGO Ideas Facebook official feed.

The idea was selected from 11 other projects over the period of January and May 2017. A special mention was also made for Surf Rescue, and the folks at LEGO will be working on the special message to share the story behind the set designed by Damien and Aiden MacRae.

Suzuki Junya will be the designer that will be working on bringing this futuristic bike from concept to the production model that’s set to be released in 2018. Word from the excited designer is to stay tuned for the final design and launch date.

“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….

Light Cycle and Stand

More Tron action after the jump!

Tough Competition

I couldn’t decide which I liked better. I really couldn’t. The heat is on between Andrew Lee and Simon Liu with this most recent Iron Builder. I (along with many other girls my age) really find Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine easy on the eyes, so there’s a point there. But the GRID is just so stunning.

Simon’s GRID:

I don’t envy the judges.
