Comic-Con may be physically canceled, but that doesn't mean we're not getting some fun convention exclusives this July. Today, we have a first look at Diamond Select Toys' exclusive Tron action figure. Not only is it an eye-catching piece of plastic that is sure to brighten up your action figure shelf, it also comes in a very cool VHS-style box. There hasn't ever been a Tron toy quite like it.
Diamond Select Toys have released two images of the figure, one in broad daylight, and they other glowing against the dark of a computer simulator. The company also sent over a PR describing exactly what fans can expect from this sure to be coveted piece of plastic. Sadly, they aren't letting us see the VHS box the toy comes in just yet.
