Suit up in street-legal 'Tron: Legacy' motorcycle gear
If you fancy yourself a Flynn -- or consider yourself a Quorra -- and the motorcycle is your preferred mode of transportation, you might be happy to hear that the good folks at Disney Consumer Products have got your back.
Among the merchandise tie-ins for the upcoming "Tron: Legacy" movie are street-legal replicas of the suits the pair wear while zipping around the grid on their Light Cycles. They are being offered by Universal Designs Ltd. -- the same company that's helped biker fan boys unleash their inner Batman, Iron Man and Wolverine through officially licensed movie replica leather outerwear.
The suits include CE-approved body armor, form-molded leather detailing, stretch spandex inserts, a tone-on-tone silicone hexagon print (the hexagon is one of the many recurring geometrical design motifs in the film) and light-reflective accents.
The limited-edition suit (only 1,000 of each are being made) is being offered through the company's website only, and is available in two styles: Sam Flynn (for him) and Quorra (for her), and prices for each piece are as follows: jacket is $498, pants $269, gloves $79, and boots $149 -- which brings the whole suit to $995.
But hopefully you're not in a a hurry; delivery won't be until the second quarter of 2011.
Which should give you plenty of time to take motorcycle lessons -- in case you're not street legal.
