    I was just looking over some of the Tron toys they're releasing now and thought it'd be cool to have transforming light cycles or TFs with Tron-esque designs. The glowing patterns could even make for a legit gimmick. I'd be all over those in an instant.

    Your thoughts?

    The WFC toys are pretty close. Well at least BB looks like he'd fit right in. But yeah I'd think that would be pretty cool if the paint actually glowed or it had LED lights.

    They do come close on some designs, but I like the sleek Tron aesthetic more.

    Tron? That probably wouldn't happen, but it would be better than that Total Drama Island idea proposed by a member at one time.......

    The planned/cancelled Animated Blur repaint shown on the Animated Ironhide package looks straight out of Tron.

    I really would like to see all that cancelled Animated stuff still come out, even the repaints. I wonder if Botcon...

    That made even less sense than an Adventure Time crossover.

    That could potentially work. Possibly on a voyager or deluxe mold, I would imagine.
    Course, the problem is getting whoever own's TRON to hand over the copyrights for the toys.

    Perhaps it's possible... as a Disney Label. And we all know how well those are selling. I still can't believe they made a surfing Donald Duck..

    I've always said there should be a line of TF with luminous paint. Or neon paint. But as actual Tron vehicles? Nah. They're kinda boring and limited.

    G1 Afterburner reminds me of the Tron cycles. He and Hardhead have the 2 coolest Cybertronian modes ever!!!

    I don't know who TRON is but I would be all over My Little Pony crossovers.

    I remember a member made some custom WFC figures with paint that glowed, they looked awesome (sorry I forget the person's name).

    The Tron motorcycles would be interesting to see.

    Or even "glow in the dark" plastic like they did with the GI Joe figures. I think a "glow in the dark" Fiery Fallen would be great.

    If there was a two-pack with two lightcycles that transformed into Daft Punk, I'd probably explode, and then my ashes would reconstitute themselves so I can buy them.

    This is an excellent idea, and I'm sure TRON characters lend themselves pretty well to transformations. However, with regards to licensing, that will be quite an issue.
