    I think it could be done without the rider and still look really cool...

    Tron cycle

    I would love to build a life-size model of this bike. Anybody ever scale up the models to get real life size/dimensions? I have a 2x4 vac-table and could probably build it over a small framed bike. If anyone wants to collaborate on such a thing, I am game.
    Cheers,
    Brash

    Building life-size!? That would be awesome and ridiculous at the same time. It's such a weird feeling.

    Wow can't wait for someone to make a model. I've been waiting for a good Tron cycle model. Maybe this one is the one to get teh creative juices flowing.

    The lightcycle that can drive on the wall is pretty cool, but the fan is extremely noisy and I would think it will eat batteries like candy.

    If it anything lik the zero g air hogs, one BIG thing is that it will require an absolute smooth surface to drive on.
    But if anything I will get the regular light cycle for my collection. :mrgreen:

    I've only waited 28 years for this sequel so I have warned my wife that I am going to go Tron crazy when the new stuff comes out, and other than the light cycle that keyboard is top on my list, it will go nice with the blue glow that my computer case gives off! :mrgreen:

    Gosh...I just realized how old I am. Tried to watch Tron with my 10 year old boys and they thought it was old looking. They're still stoked for the sequel!

    Never saw the old movie but I certainly gonna watch the new one. Besides, the concept of the vehicles is similar to Automan. Or should I say the other way...
