The Tron toy line was based on the 1982 Disney movie. In this movie, Kevin Flynn was a computer programmer that created a couple of cool games, but they were stolen by a rival engineer, named Ed Dillinger, who presented them as his own work. After Flynn leaves the company, he attempts to prove that Dillinger stole his work by hacking into the mainframe, which is protected by an artificial intelligence firewall, created by Dillinger, called MCP. MCP has plans to hack into computers all around the world, and when Dillinger tries to shut his system town, MCP threatens to expose his theft.
Afraid of being exposed, Dillinger beefs up security, and Flynn decides to use a security program called Tron, created by his friend, to hack MCP. MCP intercepts Flynn, and essentially digitizes him and pulls him into a digital world. In the digital world, Flynn must fight not only the MCP, but other programs that are running in the system, including another major player named Sark. In the end, Flynn manages to destroy the MCP and Sark with the help of Tron and some other good programs, and he is vindicated in the real world and his computer games, now credited to himself, eventually lands him the job as CEO.
Of course there were tons of Tron video games released over the years, not only in the Arcade, but also on home systems like the Intellivision. The sequel movie release in 2010 (Tron Legacy) had its own line of toys. The early 80’s line included handheld video games, puzzles, toy motorcycles, and action figures.
