Mercury Figure

As strange as it is for a Tron fan, I'm not a gamer.  I've never played Tron 2.0 but I really like the designs from the game.  Most fans don't consider it "canon" but I think it's still a neat alternate reality.  In 2003, NECA released a series of four 8 inch action figures based on Tron 2.0 characters.
Mercury is a female program voiced by Rebecca Romijn in the game.
Her costume design draws a lot of inspiration from sports pads which is appropriate since the costumes from the original Tron were made of pieces of motocross armour!
Mercury has 11 points of articulation.  She comes with a Tron 2.0 display base and a staff weapon accessory.  The staff is really cool!  It's a transparent rod with really detailed circuitry designs painted on it.
Any Tron enthusiast should definitely take a look at these figures.
