Dead-on review

Loved the movie, compelled to buy these crappy figures just because I can go to the store and buy TRON figures! Dead on review of the toy. The vehicles are nice, the figures a let-down. At least the larger ones give you the ironic entertainment of the face-projection gimmick.

I liked the movie as well but it doesn't compel me to buy the figures. I think it would've been an awesome toyline if it were made by Mattel toys. I also think the movie would've been more awesome if someone like Shuki Levy got on board to compose some awesome 80s buttrock techno-music.

There is a number of companies I would have liked to tackle the license before Spin Master. Even though I personally have not had any quality control issues with my figures, I think Zizzle would have done a better job with the line. And they also had enough experience in electronics to implement some sort of light-up action feature, if they wanted to.

It would have been too much to ask for Hasbro to take over the license, but I for one I'm glad it didn't go to Mattel, since their distribution is simply horrible.

Edit: Oh, and yes, I did buy all of the figures and the vehicles well before seeing the movie, and I'm glad I did because it has proven to be nigh impossible to find the things a week after the movie premiered.

Butt number?

Apparently CLU's butt has Power Level 39000!!

Interestingly, the number on mine is printed at the inner left calf, not the butt.

Some running change?
