Also where would you get a figure for a suit?
And is there a difference in the hair between Tron and 82/85 Alan?
Well, it depends. I mean the B-Wing pilot's hair seems longer and a bit wilder than Wedge's hairdo. If you want to go with long and wild, you could go with the B-Wing pilot. If you want something that is not as wild, you can go for Wedges. Basically, the hair style choice is up to you. Me, personally, when it comes to the hair, Wedge's is better.
For the figure body with a suit, I know the G.I. Joe line has had a couple of them in recent years, including one that is a SDCC special edition of Destro from the first G.I. Joe
movie (which I have seen a few customs use this body, such as one for a James Bond figure in the same scale). Face from the A-Team
movie line is another one that comes to mind. There's a 3.75 Nolan version Batman figure line that have figures in suits (i.e. the Joker Thug from the beginning of the film, the one who Joker takes out with the bus, and one that is a Bruce Wayne figure). The drawback is that there isn't a whole lot of articulation in the arms and the legs (the legs bend at the hip and knees, but don't expect any "kung-fu" or action poses with that particular line), but I've seen some of them pop up on eBay. There's also Parker Selfridge from the Avatar figure line, but the problem is that the size of the figure's body is slightly smaller than the G.I. Joes. Not to mention the fact that Selfridge doesn't have a jacket top (which could be remedied sculpting the sleeves and jacket). There's also Henry Jones Snr. from the Indiana Jones line, however the style of the suit's vest and tie sort of make it look old. However, you can take the jacket portion off the figure, as well as the arms of the figure, and use them on another one (which has been done plenty of times). And correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't there any Harry Potter figures in that scale that come with a suit? I don't know about that, as I'm not into Harry Potter.
However, if you're good at sculpting, you can kitbash various G.I. Joes together and sculpt a suit jacket. I know of a couple of a couple of custom figures that have been done that way. Honestly, if you don't want to sculpt anything, I think if you combine the arms, jacket and legs of Henry Jones Snr. (mentioned above) with the torso and hips of the Indiana Jones figure seen here
(bottom row, to the left, holding the machine gun), all you'd need is to paint the suit and tie and you've got yourself a business suit for your figure.
Of course, the above I've suggested are just some of the options from known lines. You never know, there may be a G.I. Joe scale line that isn't really well know but is over produced that could have parts or even a full body in a suit that you can use. Either way, it's going to take some work to find the right body/parts and confirm the correct scale to make such a figure.
For the hair, there is a noticeable difference between Alan's hair circa 1982 and TRON's hair circa 1989.
Alan Bradley circa 1982:
(The image of Alan, Flynn and Lora in Flynn's upstairs apartment at the arcade).
TRON circa 1989:
(as depicted in the game, in which the hairstyle looks more like the 1982 Alan Bradley hair. However, you can see the noticeable difference in the hairstyle, even more so when you compare it to the comic, so take this one picture with a grain of salt).
Alan Bradley circa 1989:
I wasn't able to find any screencaps of where you see Alan from the news report after Kevin Flynn disappears, so I had to make my own. Here it is
. As you can see, his hair is a different from how he had it in 1982.
