New Tron Inspired Lego Set Announced

The LEGO Idea Review Board has announced the project that was selected, to be put into production as a official LEGO set, from the 2017 qualification period. Out of of the 11 fan created set concepts with more than 10,000 supporters, only the Tron Legacy Light Cycle, designed by a pair from the UK, made the cut.

Given that LEGO already has licensing agreements with Disney, it is not surprising to see that a set based on a franchise owned by the media conglomerate made the cut.

Tron: Legacy was originally released in 2010 and was a sequel to the 1982 movie, Tron. Expect to see the Tron Legacy Light Cycle set out sometime in 2018.
