Tron was an action adventure sci-fi movie released in theaters July 9, 1982. The movie was about a computer hacker who is abducted into the digital world and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program.

To commemorate the movie, Duncan released the licensed Tron yo-yo. It was identical in specs to their Duncan Professional slimline model, but with a glow body and special lenticular side caps. The Duncan Tron yo-yo was released during the same time period as the Duncan Pac-Man lenticular yo-yo (#3272). One side of the Tron yo-yo featured the "Tron" movie logo; the opposite side featured the Tron Light Cycle from the movie.
