PHOTOS, VIDEO: Full Experience Creating a Custom Action Figure With TRON Identity Program at Magic Kingdom

The TRON Identity Program, allowing guests to create a custom TRON action figure, is now open in Tomorrowland Launch Depot at Magic Kingdom. Advance reservations are required for now, but the experience was delayed by one day.

Tomorrowland Launch Depot is the remodeled and renamed Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. gift shop between Space Mountain and TRON Lightcycle Run. Check out our full tour of Tomorrowland Launch Depot.

We were officially the first TRON Identity Program users. We checked in at these side doors of Tomorrowland Launch Depot for our experience this morning. The experience is $95.84 and there are currently no discounts offered. Check out a short video about the experience below or keep reading for more information.

They checked our name against their list and then showed us these menus of TRON Identity Program options so we could prepare. You don’t have to choose any final designs until you’re in the booth.

The final figure can interact with the remote control lightcycle, identity discs, Bluetooth speaker, and identity disc backpack. Check those out in our TRON Lightcycle Run merchandise post.

We were given an ENCOM access card and then directed to another Cast Member, who let us into one of the TRON Identity Program booths.

There is a dot on the ground for you to stand on, but two different cameras — one higher up and one lower down, for adults and kids. The booths are pretty small (and warm) but a parent and child could fit inside to work on a figure together.

You tap the ENCOM card to begin.

The computer says instructions out loud. There weren’t full captions but instructions sometimes also appear on screen.

We then went through menus of body type, team color, and helmet style. There are four different helmet shapes.

There were four athletic body types ranging from bulky to slim.

There are seven team colors: yellow, pink, red, blue, white, orange, and green. These correspond to the light-up sections of the action figure.

The colors are displayed as hexagons and are more distinct in person than in our photos of the screen.

As you make different selections, an example of the final figure is shown, so you have an idea of what it will look like.

Note that the figure on the screen is blue, but the final figure will be black.

After making these selections, you take photos.

There is a visual guide to what expressions you need to make. You take three photos and then have the option to retake them if you want.

We were then asked to choose six phrases out of ten available.

The computer reads the phrases aloud to you as you select them, and then you’re asked to record yourself saying them.

Like the photos, you can redo the voice recordings if you need to.

Once down, the screen tells you to exit the booth.

Cast Members told us we could come back in as soon as an hour or as late as park close to pick up our completed figure.

Examples of action figures, identity discs, and the remote control lightcycle are in display cases outside the booths.

About an hour later, we headed back to Tomorrowland Launch Depot to pick up our figure.

The pick-up stations are outside of the booths. A Cast Member will direct you. You once again scan your ENCOM card, and then step back to watch the magic happen.

There’s a small show of lights and the action figure in its case rises from a portal.

The figures come in arcade cabinet-shaped boxes.

The box even has tiny interactive buttons and a joystick.

The figure lights up, although the face lights were near impossible to see in the daytime.
