I found out the Flynn’s Arcade would not open until after 1, so I went back to the convention center for a bit.
It is amazing how many costumed cute girls there are at Comic-Con. It may be the best people watching ever.
Fox promoted the October 26th Alien Anthology Blu-ray release with a working(?) hibernation chamber from the Nostromo (from the original Alien).
Lucasfilm had 30 slave Leia’s on display…always a crowd favorite.
Ran into my pal Mary Franklin at the booth…the only time I see her now because she is always traveling.
Impressive Iron Man costume…not so impressive Black Widow.
To get into Flynn’s Arcade, you had to wait in line for a ticket…
Yes! Got a ticket!
Once inside, I was given a bunch of token with logos from various TRON video games.
I figured you would use the tokens to play the games in the arcade…nope. All the games were on free play (and super easy mode). The vending machine was giving out free Cokes, too.
The place was loaded with games from the early 80’s…
I got first place on Ms Pac-Man.
There were a few “Space Paranoid” games (from the original TRON). Play Space Paranoid online here.
There were some Xbox 360’s, PS3’s and Wii’s showing off upcoming TRON: Legacy video games.
I heard there were going to be clues inside to something special. I noticed many of the neon signs were partially lit so I took many photos just in case I needed to recall which letters were lit. They did an excellent job of decorating this place (which is only temporary…completely cleared out after Comic-Con).
One video game wasn’t playable…
The TRON game eventually slid over to reveal a walkway to Flynn’s lab.
And a digitizer…facing the desk? Seems like that might be a problem.
Here is the digitizer in action.
After the gun fired off, we walked down a hallway to enter the world of TRON - The “End of Line” Club. It was amazing…best moment of Comic-Con.
A bunch of videos of the bar to help capture the moment

The music by Daft Punk was so powerful. I’m definitely picking up the soundtrack as soon as it comes out (heard November).
A light cycle suit mannequin on display.
The real/live TRON girl was stunning. She actually lit up!
I had to get a photo with her.
How do you cap an experience like that?
