Trons (plural) have absolutely nothing to do with Tron (singular)

January 12, 2013


Are these “Robot Clowns That Make You Laugh”? Or are they things that if they were flesh and blood beings you’d take out back behind the woodshed to put them out of their misery? I’m betting on the latter. They’re reminiscent of the robot that Homer Simpson made and abandoned, the one that he accidentally pulled from behind a box in the garage one day and it pleaded “FATHER, GIVE ME LEGS!”

That they “hop” seems a bit of a stretch. “Limp” would be more accurate. And there’s nary a Bruce Boxleitner to be found.

    Hey, now! If it comes from the world of the Micronauts, it must be good! Well, OK, maybe not. Thery’re a bit odd looking and pretty impractical as vehicles, but I do like the fact that kids could mix & match the parts, using their creativity a bit, sorta like Legos.

      Fair enough, though my experience with the mini-engine toys as a kid was that they burned out rather quick. Also, not sure I want to ignite a child’s inner Dr. Frankenstein.
