Grid Champion

A Tron tribute in translucent purple with blue “grid” paint. It matches the classic 1982 Tomy colorway well. Same sculpt as Battle Burger , with great attention to detail (especially on the human and burger heads) and a nice nod to the identity disk on the add on wrestling belt.
I was just talking with a friend that I went to see Tron with ages ago on Facebook, and he remarked that he wished he still had the light cycle from that time. I wonder if I could create a recogniser or tank from the granite Gohlems for him to tool around on? I probably start small with a bit.
Side-side note, doing research on Wendy Carlos was my first realisation that trans people existed, due to her doing the Tron soundtrack. She also did amazing stuff on the clockwork orange soundtrack.
Back to the Grid Champion… 8 painted heads, wrestler trunks, battle tribes trunks, wrestler boots, battle tribes boots, remainder of a regular single figure and a head swappable mini wrestler. Not shown additional Glow-in-the-Dark green clawbber hands / head.
