Prepare for this list to go nuclear any day now as we get closer to D Day and still have a loooong way to go before we are even close to the number of collectibles and limited edition items we had least year. So far, it doesn't seem like the recession is going to put a damper on those numbers, as companies who never participated before throw their hat in the ring of battle. Spin Master can be added to that list.
The new movie Tron: Legacy still seems like a lifetime away, but Spin Master is making sure we celebrate its coming with my top pick for best exclusive at the show. The packaging is 100% pure geeky AWESOME and the figure inside is a dorky dream come true. Say hello to the special edition Tron Vintage Figure!
This will be a static figure of Tron from the original "Tron" movie and will come in a package made to look like the Tron arcade game. The figure has a light-up feature on the base that can be activated in or out of the arcade-style packaging. Limited Edition – only 1,500 pieces, available, $40.
Also on hand will be a limited edition die-cast replica of Sam's Light Cycle from the "Tron Legacy" movie. Limited Edition - only 3000 pieces available, $5. At that price, expect them to dissappear faster than a hot cosplay girl realizing a horde of 300lb con photographers are closing in. Both items will be available at the Tron booth (inside the Disney Booth) at San Diego Comic Con.
