For you gamers, Tron game controllers for the Xbox, Wii and PS3 are now available, ranging from $49 to $79 on Amazon.com. That should come in handy to play the new "Tron: Evolution" video game (rated T for Teen), which is $59 for Xbox 360 and PS3 ($129 for collector's editions, which include movie tickets and a collectible illuminated light cycle model), $49 for Wii, $29 for Games for Windows Live and $39 for Nintendo DS and PSP.

You can wear your love of all things "Tron" on your chest with "My Other Ride is a Light Cycle" glow-in-the-dark T-shirts and hoodies from Threadless.com, $12-$30.

Ladies might also love the limited-edition, five-inch, high-heeled platform sandal by designer Jerome C. Rousseau that was inspired by Quorra, the female warrior character from the upcoming film "Tron: Legacy." Costing $795, the shoe will be exclusively sold at the Tron Pop-Up Shop in L.A. but never fear, since the shoe will expand to other retailers in 2011.
