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

$70 premium nets you a toy and a display case. Is it worth it? Depends how much you love Tron...

In addition to the just-announcedEpic 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 likethis $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.
