We’re slowly recovering from our Thanksgiving food coma, finally getting around to our first post-holiday news roundup. A couple of interesting tidbits over the past few days, most notably from LEGO. So interesting, in fact, that one piece is our first story of the day. Behold the glory of the LEGO Ideas Tron Legacy Light Cycle.
Now if they come out with a Light Cycle from the original Tron, life will be complete.
TRON Legacy Light Cycle is Next LEGO Ideas Set
Our friends over at The Brick Fan got the drop on the next LEGO Ideas set: Tron Legacy Lightcycle.

This being early on, there’s no brick count, retail or ship date as of yet, but…it is a glorious set. And already has earned a spot on my LEGO shelf.
