Lightcycle

This is a custom TRON Legacy Lightcycle (Cycle build was designed by Ewok in Disguise).

 

Ewok was kind enough to post instructions, which I used to build this one (check out his work: here). I did not have all the required parts so this has some subsitutions. I have Bricklink orders incoming to fix this issue.

 

What I did next was actually light the cycle up. The wheel wells and round bricks in the middle of the bike are not photoshopped, this is actual ILLUMINATION from a product called EL wire that has been added to the cycle.

 

The only photoshopping done was to add the background.

    I must say, it's the best I've seen so far.

    I didn't think that it could be improved but yes it can! Nicely done.

    Again, thanks guys, glad you like the mod. I am very pleased with it and am now debating making a series of these with EL streaming out to make the trails.

    Fine Clonier I'd love to see that. I wish I'd known about these wires when I was on my Tron blacklight kick last year.

    Doooooooooooo it. :O

    These wires are the very same that they used to light the costumes for the film.

    I have parts on order to create more cycles, so all in good time.

    Fine Clonier It would be awesome if you could make phosphorescent decals, but I'm sure that is far from easy or cheap to do. When I did my figs I had to use GitD and fluorescent paints and a blacklight.

    Sweet! Looks just like my Tron die-cast cycle.

    Will you repost the instructions? My son would be all over this.

    Is it self contained?
  • Fine Clonier 3y

    xenolego No, see the latest BrickJournal for how it was done
  • xenolego 3y

    The latest one I got was the Steampunk issue....but I'll look into buying the next one......


    BTW: did you know that Brickjournal is sold at Legoland?
