'Tron: Legacy' treatments geek up the walls

By adding images from Disney's newest 3D tentpole film you can single-handedly raise your property value. Or geek out. Either one.

Wait, am I in "The Matrix"? Gadgets and Gear

My friend has tickets to a sneak preview of "Tron: Legacy" on IMAX 3D tonight. I have rarely been so jealous. There's not a single movie I've been this excited about since "Crank 2: High Voltage" hit last year. I'm just insane about "Tron."

And I guess I'm almost insane enough (but not quite) to love this 6x10-foot Tron-themed wall mural that goes on like wallpaper. It's not the kind of thing that would look good at my place (Sam Flynn wouldn't work next to Miss June), but maybe it would at yours.

If it's too big, there are also glow-in-the-dark light cycle decals you can add as decoration. And, not to be left out, the young lead character Sam has his own set, too.

The wall decals adhere to the walls with adhesive, so they're not permanent and you can move them around anywhere. Or take them with you on vacation so you can impress the hotel maid. I'm sure she's a "Tron" fan, right?

The giant mural is $150 and uses a more traditional adhesive, so it's not as portable. The decal sets go for $30 each. I'm not saying these decorations are right for everyone, but there's a pretty good chance you've got one geek on your holiday list that these would work nicely for. That said, if you want to get me some of the new Tron toys that will be coming out this holiday season, I'll gladly send you my address.

Correction, November 1 at 1:15 p.m. PDT: The original story misstated the way the mural and decals attach to walls. The murals go on like wallpaper and the decals utilize adhesive.
