Looks good but where’s the identity discs?   Also I guess old Luke from the Achto Training set will have to stand in for the elder Flynn.

and here is the packaging.
we are getting two cycles comparing to the original idea of only one.

The builds look quite simple, and not really similar to the actual bike. I think this will tank more than Adventure Time. LEGO does not seem to have put much effort into it, I think they just released it because they cannot go without an approved set for too many review periods.

I agree, I mean even the minifigure torso (from what is visible in the picture) is better.  

I would have been happier if they gave us a proper light cycle instead of two mediocre ones.

It's all about the minifigs, I'm dissapointed with the fact that Lego decided to ditch the stand which could give a better representation to the overall build and it's always a better thing to have a little space to place the minifigures next to the lightcycles for display purpouses. I don't think this neither will tank or be unusually popular, same as yellow submarine or caterham seven. don't expect a stock shortage unless tabby decide differently. :P

edit: there are no arm prints which means those minifigs from the top of the page are fake.

Looks to me like a $30 set. Ill probably get 2 of them just because I have a soft spot for the original Tron and Ill probably try and make a vintage model out of the included parts. They should have kept the slopes on the top as seen in the original submission.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's a simple build that has just a few pieces that doesn't cost a lot.  With rumors of Voltron being the biggest piece count / cost for an Ideas set yet, they probably want to balance it a bit.

Is it just me or does the body (towards the bottom) of the light cycles look like a rectangular box? It looks awful.

I definitely need to see better pics first before writing it off.  I never expected it to be greatly sought after or an investment winner.  I'm just and fan and this will still go on my shelf at work.

Don't really like the design, to be honest.

Not sure why the original submission went with the Tron: Legacy bikes when those from the original 1982 movie were much more iconic.

That said, the original IDEAS submission was more impressive than what we've got here. Not one of LEGO's better efforts.

I'm a TRON Legacy big fan and even bigger fan of the DAFT PUNK score for this movie which was 10/10 for me and still is.
I would rather have Daft Punk minifigs than TRON Legacy Characters but with RINZLER you just can't go wrong. Day 1 for me.
Wonder if he (Rinzler) will even have a face or they made black head placement like HULKBUSTER LIMITED MINIFIG with no god damn face :/

So much hate for this so far, but I will still buy 2 on release day. I get onto Lego all the time about the amount of Copters they produce, but I think Motorcycles come in a close second.

Looks to me like a 20% off sale on SAH.

I´d say 50% off in Europe is  a given for Yawn Lego C-
