Greetings Programs! Reporting both good and bad points of interest for this Figure. Sorry... only 2 stars. I really am a fan of the TRON movies and of this character, so I am a bit let-down by the "DELUXE"-ness of this figure. Lets talk about it's GOOD POINTS: 1.) It is the work of a skilled craftsman. Very detailed Sculpt. 2.) It lights up! As advertised by it's name: "Disney Light-up Deluxe Rinzler." Ok, what else... ah, that's All I got for it's Good points. Moving on. BAD POINTS: 1.) There is a mystery with this toy's name and packaging. There are two 7 inch Rinzler Figures made by Spin Master: the "Disney Light-Up Deluxe Rinzler" and the "Deluxe Rinzler". What is the difference? HARDLY ANY! Seems to be only the plus or minus of a few weapons, and packaging. This makes for some Deluxe confusion! Seems the "Deluxe Rinzler" comes in a package labeled simply "Rinzler", and the "Disney Deluxe Light-Up Rinzler" comes in a package that is labeled "Deluxe Rinzler". Huh? What is this? Bait and switch? The "Disney Light Up Deluxe Rinzler" does NOT light up any more than the "Deluxe Rinzler" or (if you go by packaging) the "Rinzler" figure. Some of his lights are just painted on. I think that smells of over-hype. 2.) BADLY ARTICULATED: This figure really has only one good pose, with limited placement of the arms and hands. Anything beyond that the figure looks awkward. He can't even turn at the waist. This makes for poor body language and range of expression. This very stand-up-straight pose is not the "body language" of Rinzler in the movie. In TRON, Rinzler has a very distinct forward slouch, making him resemble an angry dog. The figure can NOT get into this pose. 3.) He does NOT TALK. He could say "user..." or "I fight for the users" or even make his electronic growl noise. Nothing.Read more ›

As a toy for a child? Don't waste your money on this thing there are no epic fights for or against the users to be had
I actually bought my own D. Rinzler for $13 at Disneyland (w/o a passholder discount it's $17) If I had paid $17 I would be beyond pissed.
'Full articulation' means his arms kinda move and his ankles are fully rotatable. His knees have hardly any movement to speak of and his hips have none whatsoever. As I told a friend "So I can Crucify him, but he can't even tie his shoes. WTF?"
As far as the lack of speech capabilities I was not all that bothered since Rinzler is not the most vocal of characters unlike say CLU or Sam, though /I/ would have been far more pacified with the lack of movement if he had been able to make his signature 'purr'. Also just looking at this figure I knew they had used the same mold for the black guard since his torso is far to bulky for the trim acrobatic duel disk wielder we know and love. (I guess since he can't do any of the usual twisting he put on some serious weight)
Now being an adult and a Hardcore TRON:Legacy fan I am willing to suck up my issues with this toy and just enjoy it as a nice figurine I can use for looking good and costume reference. Not to mention I prefer to hate the company for making a crappy toy than to never have the figurine of my favorite character at all.
