Spin Master Tron Toys Light Cycles And Action Figures Review

Ever try explaining to a five year old the reason why grown ups want toys?  Or, why they want to keep them in the box to simply display them?  It’s not really a conversation that makes a whole lot of sense.  And, I mean to either party…. once you really get into it!  It’s a bit of a fruitless adventure, but, that doesn’t mean it’s not fun.


Yet, somehow, we both understood one another.  There’s something about the new lineup of the Tron Toys.  They are sleek, sexy, and very well done.  It captures that not too distant future look from the original movie.  And, based solely from the barrage of commercial teaser trailers and otherwise, the new as well.

So, what all do they have?  A quick search on Amazon shows up quite a bit :

Tron Toys From Spin Master @Amazon

Below are the one’s you’ll see in this hands on and picture review footage :

Out of all the toys that we played with, each one of them had some type of special functionality in one way or another.  Be it the way that the cockpit lifted in the light cycle, or, the way that the light runner vehicle was  massive transport with lights and seating for two.   They all had something that set them each apart and palced them directly in line with the Tron vision.

And, that stays true for the action figures as well.  The now defining glowing hues of the action figures bodies’ combined with the vocal cues and light of the head really adds to the imaginary play and finishing touches.  Each figure came with its own group of sayings that it loops through upon touch.

What do they look like up close and personal?

Let’s get to it!

Tron Legacy: The toys are here! Baton Light Cycle Review

Are you a kid of the 80s?  Raise your hand.

Tron Baton Light Cycle Launcher

Tron Baton Light Cycle Launcher

I am.  And, amongst the iconic geek-y, cool, cult like movies from that time….two come to mind that stand out.

One, War Games.

Two, Tron.

And what are some of the images that just uttering the words Tron conjures up?  Yup, the disc and the light cycles.

Strolling through the aisles of Target today, I immediately took notice of all the new shiny Tron licensed toys by Spin Master.

And, one that caught my eye was the Tron Baton Light Cycle Launcher.

Taking it out of the package upon arriving home, I noticed the launcher had a surprisingly heavy feel to it.  It’s basically a spring loaded launcher that shoots out the included Light Cycle.

That included light cycle reminded me of my days of not too long ago playing the Tron arcades at the local Chuck E Cheese.  (side note : anyone remember the BIG ones that you actually stood inside of?!?!?)  Eyeing the light cycle itself, it had that sense of “clean”, futuristic design.  If you’ve seen the new Tron Trailers, you know what I’m talking about.

So, how is the toy?  What does it do?

This particular toy’s play is simplistic.  Insert the light cycle into the launcher, cock the piece back and thrust it forward to launch the toy light cycle.

The wheels on the cycle easily spin so that helps get it going once it comes out of the launcher.  I do believe, long term, kids will find themselves playing with the light cycle itself quite a bit.  Due to the launcher it goes inside, the light cycle sports a small form factor and is light enough to stick in a pocket and bring to a friends house.

With the retail price of about $15 as a Target exclusive, I do think it is a worthwhile investment for the Tron fan in the house or the soon to be Tron fan that will be introduced to the movie this holiday season!  But, thre’s a lot of Tron toys from Spin Master to choose from, and, we’ll try to get reviews up on as many as we can.  So, stay tuned, and choose wisely!

And one quick note — take notice of the tabs on the launcher.  Don’t try to pull it back forcibly.  I started to do this at first before realizing there was no give.  At that point, I realized there had to be another way.  That other way is the  two tabs on the top of the launcher that release either the door or the back of the launcher.
