Has Tron Merchandising gone to Far?

Last week, OC Weekly came out with a list of the “10 most ridiculously expensive Tron Products”. And I have to agree. OC Weekly's list includes everything from $795 pair of high heel shoes to a $2,600 necklace. This all has this blogger wondering if Disney may have taken this whole merchandising thing a bit too far.

We are all use to the idea of a film selling merchandise, from toys to videogames and statues, but shoes, iPod speakers, keyboards; I think are a bit much. Sure it makes good business sense to try and get every possible dime out of a film project, but I think they need to exercise some limits. How many women that watch Tron are going to be ready to drop $795 on a pair of shoes? I'm thinking not many, but perhaps I will be proven wrong.

What do you think? Are you planning to buy some Tron merchandise?
