There are few films that have had such a marketing push and viral marketing strategy as the upcoming TRON Legacy, the sequel, re-imagining of the original 80’s classic TRON. And as usual, with a big movie push, comes big movie merchandise.

The most exciting of the new TRON Legacy line from Spin Master, to me, is the 7″ Impulse-Projection-Technology figures. Admittedly, this is a gimmick, but it’s a damn cool one, and unique at that.

Disney Consumer Products Announces TRON: Legacy Toy Line from Spin Master

I’ll admit that I wasn’t that thrilled by how Spin Master handled the Last Airbender action figures, but I’m willing to give them another shot with the TRON: Legacy line of toys. I’ll hope that under Disney’s guidance these turn out better.

Both the 12-inch and 7.5-inch figure lines will feature facial images that are projected into / onto the heads. The prototypes for the smaller figures include some nice articulation for a toy with a lot of electronics – perhaps that accounts for the non-standard size.
