Wow- that is one hell of a

Wow- that is one hell of a promotion- a working arcade based on nothing but one movie! And not only that, but the 1/1 new LightCycle!

w00t for "Tron Legacy"!

. . .

Wow- it is really difficult to understand that press conference. I know you were limited by distance, and I understand that's how the cards fall. But... is there any way you could- I don't know- caption it for us?

TR2N was a cooler title

Just the same, you guys are right about the original, after all TOMY made the original TRON toys. Syd Mead, Juan/ Wendy Carlos, The Dude... Never mind the futurist aspects which are on par with Star Trek. People who can't dig that movie amaze me.

I'm with you in hoping this one is another classic. The marketing push is encouraging, as long as they (the royal "They") don't kill this movie before it arrives.

Jeff Bridges...

A few months ago, I somehow managed to watch three movies starring Jeff Bridges in one three-day weekend. Friday night was Iron Man, Saturday was The Big Lebowski, Sunday was TRON. It was entirely unintentional.

If you look at the original

If you look at the original Tron's pre-production art, the "NEW" Lightcycles design is incredibly close to what they intended for the first film.

Oh- they intended them to

Oh- they intended them to be open-air? Was it the restriction of the CGI at the time that prevented it?

TRON 2.0

Originally it was to be called Tron 2.0 from what I read. Still the trailer looks awesome, hope the movie lives up to the hype. Sometimes the movie trailer is better than the actual movie... did I hear "Revenge of the fallen".

There were several titles tossed around,

TR2N is the one I went for. Seriously enigmatic and cryptic, but whatever. You know the rule "Asses in Seats!" applies before anything creative ever will. Still, I can't wait for this movie. I'm hugging my MIP Tomy SARK even as I type.

For me, this was the biggest

For me, this was the biggest news to come out of SDCC this year. I've always been a pretty big fan of TRON. It is probably one of my top 5 favorite movies. Seeing the trailer for the sequel gave me goosebumps like I haven't had since first seeing footage of the 2007 TF movie. 2010 is going to be BIG!

PS: Adam, you lucky bugger. Those tokens are AWESOME!

A Tron Arcade Game

... and one day I swear I will own the stand-up Tron arcade game we played as young-ins to go with the token. :)

I agree Robby, this was the biggest news to come out of the convention for me too. The fact that I got to stand in on the press conference, 20 feet away from Flynn himself was pretty Epic.
