Looks fully lighted from what I can see. I wonder what scale it's in? I wouldn't be surprised if they did a smaller scale to bring down costs since the movie wasn't so successful.

Probably 1/6, similar to other ss "statue" lines like LOTR maquettes but we won't know until next week for sure.

Really though, this should be a 1/4 or 1/5 Premium format with a sculpted rubber costume with lights.

The film is meaningless, look at the Skaar thread, people have bought that with no knowledge of the character other than he's Hulks son because its badass.

Same principle applies here :lecture

It will be interesting to see if they release the other three items that were on the drawing board.
I suppose it lends some weight to the theory that if HT has anymore releases up their sleeve they would wait until after Sideshow got some of their stuff, kind of like the scheduling of HT's and Sideshow's Predators line.

I bet it's all some type of transparent material that's been masked off on the light strips and painted then has lighting inside.

That's how I'd do it. And from what i can tell it is lit, since there's orange parts in the shadows that you can see.

I don't think that the teaser pic shows us the illuminated figure. I rather think on the pic we see a (early) prototype without any light effects and not the final version. It looks to me that the flashlight gives the figure the light effect.

Not normally into statues either, but that looks pretty awesome so far! Hopefully it'll be 1/6, so it'll fit in with my HT Kevin Flynn.

Glad to see some fresh news about this. I cant' wait to see the full reveal next week. I don't care about the scale ; if it looks good to me, there's a chance I'll be ordering.

As for the lighting details we see on the teaser pic, they seem painted to me. It's hard to tell with only one picture but I can't imagine it doesn't light up.

- 1/4 Sam & Lightcycle will light up
- Disc and baton replica set will light up

In their Tron Legacy video, they announced however you display their products, it will be "consistent with all the light lines, contrast between colors and lights".

If the statue doesn't light up, where would the consistency be ?

They've done it before. They keep doing it now in their PFs, 1/1 busts, 12", dioramas. Other companies (PCS, Kotobukiya, First4Figures ...) put lights in their products too.

It would be a lazy move from Sideshow not to do it for Rinzler (and possibly Quorra).

must say i'm surprised at this announcement. didn't expect to see much from it, let alone a rinzler. but it is good news. thing is, i would've preferred a pf with a mix of fabrics/rubber and polystone. i'm concerned whether or not ss can pull off the paint app for the high-gloss look of rinzler's armour, esp the helmet. they don't exactly have a good track record, even for 1:1 pieces.

watching this with cautious optimism...

They announced several Tron Legacy products long ago, so it wasn't really surprising. They've still got a 1:4 Lightcycle planned.

that's the thing. they announced those items AGES ago then nothing. not a peep from them til now. as for the lightcycle, i'm curious to see what they do with it. if it's polystone, i'll prob pass because i'm not convinced ss can pull off the ultra high-gloss finish.

Sideshow seems pretty committed to this license from what I understand. This was in their "Ask Sideshow" section just a few months ago in June:

"We are in fact developing lots of Tron Legacy products. Not only the Sam Flynn Light Disc set, but also a 1:4 scale Lightcycle and an as-of-yet-unannounced 1:4 scale villain too. Because the light features are so essential to Tron, we need additional time to work out all of the engineering and functionality on our products before they are ready for their big reveal. We may be able to show some of them at San Diego Comic-Con, or perhaps soon after the show."

It sounds like Rinzler is 1:4 scale. I know this has been a lot of "stick a fork in it" in this forum about this property, but I find this statement very encouraging, especially being that it was made six months after the movie was released. To still say they are developing lots of Tron: Legacy product back in June, must mean the Hot Toys presales were encouraging as well as fan feedback, and the home video release. I think these things just take a bit of time.

This is really the beginning and end of this whole thing. If it lights up and causes them to take longer then go ahead and take the time. But it better light up sweet...and via batteries.

What part of the suit lights up? What's up with the last picture making it look like he is in motion.

I have mixed feeling about this.

The about-to-throw-a-disc pose is kinda strange at first but I'm quickly getting used to it. I guess that's why the last pic is stylised, in order to show the throwing motion.

It does light up, as the activating button is seen on the back of the base (4th pic). But I don't like that some of the pics are tweaked to enhance the lights (3rd pic, 9th pic).

Discs and helmet seem too small to me.

Gonna have to think about it. It's clearly not an instant buy for the moment.

If you look at picture #9 in the photo gallery (in the production blog entry) for the Rinzler piece, it will give you the best shot of what lights up and what doesn't.

As for the 'motion' in picture #10...it's just a more arty type photo. The piece is not articulated.

I think the only thing that lights up is the disc & base. It would be nice if they indicate which part is the light-up feature. Those photoshop glamor shots aren't helping determine the light-up feature.

Unfortunately we no longer do backstage passes (at least not at this time. They could be brought back in the future). I'll pass along the idea of having some kind of video created to show off the light-up feature in the future. Most likely, such a video would probably not show up for a few months (if it can be done at all) as the prototype may no longer be in house.

I can't pin point it either but I do feel something is missing. The 2 racing stripes and flat black surface that make up the base isn't really doing much for this piece.

yup! that's it right there. that's the pose they should of went with. I know SS doesn't seem to normally like to go with movie stills/posters as their design, (Dutch, Cap, Thor-to name a few) and it usually doesn't matter, but with Rinzler they really should've went with his pose from the movie & poster. They just needed to drop that left arm down and tilt the head down and it would've looked so much better IMO

Ok honestly...and this is just my opinion...he doesn't warrant a 1:4 statue. I think he'd have made a sweet figure from Hot Toys. For sideshow...there are so many things that could have been better for a statue. How about Sam Flynn. How about a light cycle (yes I know its in the works). How about Quorra? How about THE FLYNN!

It just doesn't seem like its a figure that blows you away. I'm predicting another Neytiri situation here. Sweet premise, but just didn't nail it. 1:4 is tough. you really have to nail it. I think they swung and missed with this statue. I hate the base. It's so bright and orange that it kills the figure. They'd have done better to do a glossy base that lit up in a way that also would light the statue up.

But as with any prototype. It's a prototype. Lets see what they finish at.

I blame MAXX Replicas. His bases are so cool that they make this one suck. Sideshow. Hire MAXX please.

Have to disagree about the choice of character. How can Tron (Rinzler) be a poor choice of character for a Tron film? Both Flynn's are getting the HT treatment and personally I have no desire to have either in 1/4 format. Quorra or CLU I'd gladly take in 1/4 though. :D

I do agree this doesn't blow you away like I hoped it would, and I think a slight tweak in pose would help that aspect. Rinzler's character was an intimidating warrior, he acts as CLU's enforcer and this pose doesn't do much in evoking that emotion when you saw him in the film.

This is spot on. Rinzler was used in the film like a Ninja. silent, deadly and acrobatic.

All we actually know is this from an interview months ago:

Q: Since the Announcement of Tron: Legacy, we wonder if other characters from the license will emerge? A: Unfortunately, due to a scheduling problem, we've had to hold this license, particularly because of the figures coming out soon.

Some people are interpreting that as it is cancelled, others think the scheduling problem they are talking about is that they need time to develop the light up features more or they want to avoid releasing a figure at the same time Sideshow releases one of their products and then Sideshow released Rinzler a little later than expected. Or, they didn't want to compete with themselves and releasing something the same time as the light cycle which has been repeatedly delayed.

Some are saying this is like the Watchmen line where they pulled the plug before releasing a Rorschach because they weren't happy with sales and others are comparing it with Predators where they are staggering releases over long periods of time to avoid direct competition with Sideshow's stuff. Whether we see another release it is really hard to say but I don't know that anyone knows for certain one way or the other. Many said we would never see an Iron Monger. I guess I'm trying to stay cautiously optimistic. There was a rumor CLU was in the works but I haven't heard anything lately.

Hate to agree but I have to. I can actually live with the slightly more muscular body but the miniature helmet is pretty bad. It kind of reminds me of some of the smaller scale toys of Rinzler that have this tiny helmet on him, it takes away from the character imo and doesn't look right.

Watched the movie again last night, and then watched the Sideshow pics and 360°. Helmet is too small, which makes the body looks more muscular.

A bigger helmet would make the body look less "beefed-up", but still athletic, which is what Rinzler is supposed to be.

It's the exact same problem with the discs. They make the hands and arms look bigger too.

Increase the size of the helmet and the discs and body proportions will better match the movie character's ones, IMO.

Ok it took forever but I found the exact pose and moment that comes to mind when i think of Rinzler, here it is in a gif but you get the idea. I hope SSC goes back to the drawing board on the pose b/c this would be an instant must have if they can give us Rinzler as we see here:

http://www.neuralcluster.net/vids/hrs/Gifs/TRON/rinzler.gif

And here's a gif I found depicting the acrobatic aerial movement he performs that I referenced earlier:

http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/19300000/Rinzler-rinzler-19303085-400-186.gif

I found this still shot from the scene above where Rinzler is introduced and breaks out his 2 discs:

http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/20000000/Rinzler-rinzler-20010580-500-281.jpg

And here's another movie still that gives a better idea of Rinzler's true hemlet size:

http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/17700000/Rinzler-rinzler-17772631-161-313.jpg

Finally, here's a 2nd pose that would have been automatic win:

http://i1096.photobucket.com/albums/g334/RINZLERTRON/Screen_shot_2010-11-01_at_10_11_49_PM.png


Based on all the movie still shots and the various gifs I think Corilois is right, Rinzlers helmet was a fair bit larger than what we're seeing in the SSC prototype. The pose is my biggest pet peeve, I'd probably let the helmet slide if they can nail Rinzler in classic form. It's still early so....... :pray:

It's nice to see a collector pleased with a product :hi5:

Your comment raises a question for me : customers aknowledge an item could be better/has a default, but buy the product anyway. I think it doesn't "push" the manufacturers to improve.

We're not talking about a 12" figure you swap on a different TT body or a piece of cloth you dye. It's a statue with light features.

Once again Gates, it's not directed at you ;) . My point is constructive feedback should be sent to Sideshow and others, so even more costumers are interested and satisfied. I just sent an email to SS regarding this.
But in this case, I just saw SS is not responsible for the initial design and sculpt so I'm even less hopeful something can be done.

Yes it's a LITTLE small but nothing that looks too much out of place. That's why I said that. If it was something that absolutely looked ridiculous, then I wouldn't buy it. But the tiny difference is not going to stop me.

I agree with you Coriolis. This has been an issue for me with Tron before with the HT Kevin Flynn release that I really feel was a let down. I won't get into specifics but I ended up buying that figure in the end for $160 I think simply b/c I wanted to support the line in hopes of getting Quorra, Rinzler or CLU in 1/6 - figures I truly wanted.

I don't want to do same thing here again with Rinzler, b/c this will be SSC's only take on the character imo. SSC can vastly improve this Rinzler release with very minor changes and truly capture the essence of Rinzler of the film instead of what we see in the proto which does not convey the feel of the ultimate warrior of the Grid.

Watched the movie again last night, and then watched the Sideshow pics and 360°. Helmet is too small, which makes the body looks more muscular.

A bigger helmet would make the body look less "beefed-up", but still athletic, which is what Rinzler is supposed to be.

It's the exact same problem with the discs. They make the hands and arms look bigger too.

Increase the size of the helmet and the discs and body proportions will better match the movie character's ones, IMO.

I agree, and disagree. Rinzler on screen is slender, and not at all beefy. Even if SS made the helmet/ discs larger the sculpt is still off. Now I will also say that Disney made a major mistake making Rinzler so short in the film. Tron (Bruce) is a taller guy, so having a shorter actor portray Tron AKA Rinzler was mistake #1.

That being said I am a huge Tron fan, and was looking forward to this release, but I have to pass based on what is shown. Simply put the sculpt is not accurate to the screen seen Rinzler. So if SS wants my money then they can't half as it, and need to put better effort into the overall product. :exactly:

If I were to collect TRON related product I would get this. Pretty cool if you ask me. Only problem is I would want the lights on all the time. Just not TRON is the lights are not on.

I loved Tron, and i would not buy it. I would but the ligthcycle from HT.
Discs and head too small. I like the ligth thing, but not for me anyways.

I'm sure some other figures/statues will come up in the future.
Tron Legacy will not be forgotten :lol

After seeing the Rogue abomination I have very little hopes SSC will change the pose, correct the helmet, or execute this piece well altogether. I really hope I'm wrong.

We'll have to wait for the release to see if they modified anything. Changing the pose is highly doubtful ; chances of bigger helmet and discs are slightly bit better (and would make me buy it instantly), but are very slim ... even anorexic (any Leathal Weapon fans around here ? ;) ).
However, the final piece can still be a home-run nonetheless, production-wise. At least, that's what I hope for those who have pre-ordered. It doesn’t have painted eyes so that’s already one thing people won’t have to worry about :monkey3

On a side note, you shouldn't generalize the Rogue PF issues to other upcoming Sideshow products. If you do, you'll probably never buy a collectible again from SS, or from any manufacturer either.

All companies have problems, one day or another. A defective item doesn't make all the other products bad.

I'd add in the Thor PF & Destroyer which both got heavily criticized after members saw them on display at SDCC, and the other Xmen statue who's head looks so terrible people have labeled it an "X-turd" - think it was Gambit but I have to double check.

According to a Side Show chat rep yesterday it's "too late in the game" to make any changes to the pose and head/disc size to this Rinzler statue, so what we're seeing is what we're getting. Which is really too bad b/c this has gone from "Grail to fail" along with so many other recent SSC releases lately. Oh well money saved for the holiday's I guess.

now i'm seriously worried for the ss pieces i just preordered, like the jessica rabbit pf and the alien big chap statue. come guys, buck up! the economy's bad. all the more reason to give consumers quality products, if you want to stay in business.

Those other example's were posted to illustrate SS's quality products, comparing them to the Rogue PF. Just the opposite of what you are suggesting.

And that "X-turd" (first time I read it TBH) you are making reference to is certainly NOT Gambit. In fact he is the best X-Man released so far, so I highly doubt it is him. Probably Cyclops EX head or Colossus comiquette.

If that's what you call 'quality' than that's all you. :huh

After double checking the XTurd is indeed the Cyclops EX head.

Kevin Flynn is a nice figure. I think he is worth the price. The lightcycle I get, but I don't understand the lighting problems with Rinzler. Now that is simple lighting no different than one of the Star Wars lightsabers illuminating.

Great pics masterside and good catch on the lightcycle on Rinzler's helmet. I hope that's a tease! The lights turned out so well on this piece that the lightcycle would be killer! These lights have that glowing effect unlike my Hot Toys lightcycle (still love it though :))

Really like how this turned out. Decided to cancel Duke Nukem and used points on Rinzler. Should get him for about $120 shipped. Hope SSC continues this line or at least make Quorra. Now got to wait until the back order is filled.

It was never in stock. I spoke to ssc today & she said it is schedule to arrive in there warehouse within 2 weeks. I think this will be a sleeper hit.

Oh ok. Yesterday it said "pre-order". I'm on the fence with this one. Might pick it up.

The light up feature and in hand pics sold me. You can never rely on ssc pics. The fact it's 1:4 sold me on it too. Grab it before its really sold out. ES is very low also.

It was in stock...my friend ordered it on the 27th after seeing pics and he got the shipping notice yesterday from UPS/Sideshow...obviously since forum in hand pics they sold quickly what they had in stock and probrably called in the rest of the shipment from China or somewhere to get ready to ship because the orders are now coming in...this will sell out one of these days soon...I like the ES and if Tron comes back into another film or they do other characters like Quorra this will be up there in secondary market price..When my buddy gets it he's gonna bring it over and I will take some pics

Does Sideshow charge up front for backordered items? I couldn't find anything specific on their website.

Thanks! I noticed the NRD. I didn't know if they charged in full on a backorder or treated it like a pre-order.
