No, your eyes don’t deceive you. Though there still isn’t a (real) SDCC this year, Diamond still has some exclusives on tap, and the Tron box-set is the first.
As SDCC is set to happen here in 2021, it’s a bit complex. There’s no big show this summer, that’s been canned once again in the face of a world that’s not completely over Covid yet. There will be something though, with a smaller convention happening this November, over Thanksgiving.
But even with the SDCC (such as it will be) happening in the fall, it seems as though companies will still be debuting their exclusives in the warmer months. Case in point, Diamond Select Toys. DST has just taken the wraps off of its first scheduled item, and it’s a winner.
A box-set of Tron figures, molded in translucent colored plastic will be up for order. If you’re wondering why the radical look, well then you don’t likely know what the film’s original toy line looked like.
Because these are as close as you’re going to find anywhere.
