    hmm interesting. If you dont want to scratch build stuff, I suggest you look into the Kubrick Tron set B. Comes with a light cycle and a tron tank. I have one. but it is in storage on the other side of the country.

    I like the idea. The canon is very Tron-like.

    Are you planning any mods or just repainting?

    I think with some mods to the tank mode, it would be very cool. You could add some flat, clean panels to better emulate the Tron tank body, or maybe just sand some of the detailing off the existing Shockwave tank mode.

    I think you should try to line the edges with reflective red tape. That would look great in the dark. You should be able to find it at Walmart or at an automotive store.

    I say go for it and have fun. I look forward to seeing more on this...

    Your next assignment should be the various colored light cycles (Orange, Red, Yellow, Blue) and a red (Sark) or blue (Flynn) recognizer. Perhaps Cybertron Ransack, beast machines Thrust, or Animated Prowl for the cycles and God only knows for the recognizers.

    You could even do this tank in yellow as CLU.

    And come the next Tron movie, you'll have the opportunity to make Light Jets. Yes, Light Jets. They're like Light Cycles but can fly.

    END OF LINE.

    Totally agree with Netkid-Do light cycles out of Prowl but use Blurs' tires for 'em! Love to see this made!
