Tron Legacy Papercraft: Sam's Identity Disc

Given the fact that I have done papercraft identity discs for every other major character in the Tron universe, you knew it was just a matter of time before I did a paper model of Sam Flynn's identity disc from the upcoming Tron: Legacy movie. ^^ Sam is the son of Kevin Flynn, the lead character in the original Tron movie. Here are some scenes of the disc in action (with some Daft Punk music for atmosphere ^^):
Unlike the previous identity discs I did, which were 1:2 scale, this identity disc is full size. Although the disc may look pretty simple, but it is actually a fairly difficult build. There are two templates in the download, one with folding guide lines and one without. In the photo is my test build of the unlined template built without any folds. If the disc is built with folds I would give the difficulty level a 4 out of 5. Building without folds, I would give it a difficulty level of 5 out of 5! The finished disc is 10" (25 cm) across and 1" (2.5 cm) thick at the widest part. The PDF templates for the disc are available here.

  4. Yeah, I have been looking into doing a Rinzler disc. It may take me a while to find some decent reference photos though...

  5. It would be extra awesome if you could get it to split. Here's some reference photos I found.

  7. @Anon,
    Regarding the blue edges of Rinzler's disc... If you look at the movie trailers, the edges of Rinzler's disc always appear blue/white:

    I think the edges were made blue in the movie as a clue to Rinzler's "secret" identity. ;) My guess is that promo photos and toys that were created before the movie was released are the ones that show the disc all orange. Also, other than Rinzler, the rest of CLU's henchmen appear to have all orange discs. CLU himself has a "dark yellow/light orange" disc:
