Tron Evolution Special Edition includes awesome light cycle, potential overdraft fees

In addition to the just-announced Epic Mickey collector's edition, Disney has revealed the premium version of the upcoming Tron Evolution. But you'll have to be a die-hard Tron fan to stomach the fact that you're paying twice as much for the game and getting little more than a toy bike. Well, actually, it's a toy "light cycle," which is admittedly really cool.

The light cycle looks really cool in this shopped-up promotional shot, and although it appears to glow in the dark it may just be really, really glossy. For $130, a $70 hike over the cost of the standalone game, you'd expect this thing to be really high quality. And it is. It's made by Sideshow Collectibles, a company that specializes in high-end movie figurines like this $6,000 C-3PO replica.

Also included with the Tron Evolution Collector's Edition is a dome-shaped display case to house the awesome light cycle. The base of the display stand also pulls out for a spot to house the game as well.

It looks like this special package will only be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game. PC, DS, PSP, and Wii fans will have to sit this one out, unfortunately. The game is scheduled for a December 7 release date.

First look at TRON: Evolution 
The '80s classic returns, but where's the glow in the dark spandex?


Tron pads make us want to dress up in glowy spandex 
The only controllers officially endorsed by Jeff Bridges... probably

    I'm thinking, when this film comes out, I'll be able to go to McDonalds and get something quite similar to that in a happy meal, if I buy for the family, that's like, what, a tenner?

    I was very interested until I skimmed over this little detail: "The TRON: Evolution collector’s edition will only be available in limited quantities and will have a suggested retail price of $129.99 in North America." $130? Really Disney? That's outrageous! BioShock 2's Special Edition, for example, came with the game, the soundtrack on CD, three high quality lithographs, a hard bound 164-page art book, and the soundtrack for the first game on a vinyl LP. All contained in a high quality collector's case for $99.99 (ten dollars less if you got it for PC). I don't care how detailed that model light cycle is, the game and a model is not even close to worth $130.

    This looks sweet. But I don't think I'll be getting this version.

    I wasn't really planning on buying the regular version, so I find it almost impossible that I'd buy this.

    awesome. but i'm not ready to spend 130 dollars for a movie game. plus i only buy open world games.
