      Need your help guys. NIB Tron or mint modded out TAF?

      Considering TAF is already on your wishlist and Tron has not been updated to it yet...

      I'd say Mint TAF all the way. Although Tron is fun if you like super fast.

      I'd have to go with TAF, especially if it's truly mint.

      Modded and Mint do not go together. That being said, TAF by a mile.

      IMHO Tron is a bit more visually interesting, but TAF is more fun to play.
      I would chose TAF. I own TAF and play it often. I have only played Tron a few times at the PHOF so my opinion is biased!

      I like Tron but I say TAF as well.
      Unless your talking TRON LE then probably LE as TAF is easily picked up later.

      TRON LE > TAF > Tron Pro

      Go with TAF.

      Wouldnt touch a Tron even if LE with a 6 foot stick. TAF is one of the best games ever made. Far more fun with better sounds and shot making ability than a Tron... Lol you will even be looking over the centre of the flippers rather than on Tron where you are looking over the right flipper.

      I owned TAF for a while and i currently own Tron, but liking any game depends heavily on what the players pin preferences are. TAF is a very good game with nice touches, but the flow is interrupted a little too much for me and the sounds are, well,..sh*t. Tron is arguably the fastest game ever and demands precision accuracy at those speeds to be any good at it. Its also a painfully brutal drain monster if you lose ball control.

      TAF is good, but imo it has less long term playability factor than Tron by a long way.

      TAF. Every pinball fan has to own one at some point. Just too much fun... especially if you don't play it for high scores and actually go through the modes. Great game and I'll go against the grain a bit and say it's still Lawlor's best.

      Tron here. I don't get the hype behind TAF, I can't get into the game and find it a bit overrated. I'm sure I'm in the minority here though.

      Have you played both of them? Both are great games. Honestly, i'd pick the TAF just because i couldn't bring myself to buy a non-le tron.

      Just had to make that same decision and I went with TRON- I have had a lot of the old Bally? Williams classics and I wanted something a little different. No regrets yet.
      Good luck with your decision.

      I have a friend with a TAF and have tried playing it over and over and yet still dont enjoy it all. TAF and TZ. Just dont get it.
      Played a Tron and liked it right out of the gate.
      I think its what you like to play. Again, I have HS and HSII and play them for hours but could care less about those top two tier tables.

      NIB smell is nice but not the NIB tech issues you get with a lot of recent sterns. I'd go with the proven best seller especially if it's on your wish list. Get the TAF

      I'd go TAF, and I'm not a huge fan of it. Tron is somewhat growing on me, but it still doesn't feel very good to me.

      I would definitely go Tron on this one I am not a huge fan of TAF.

      NIB Tron will depreciate immediately after unboxing and TAF will not if you don't overpay.

      I love both games.

      Come on now, it wouldn't be the first time some of us have paid ~$400 to get inside a box...

      What he said

      Loved TAF in the arcades. Bought one eventually and got bored of it rather quickly. Still enjoy it at someone else's house, though. Tron is a blast. I'd take a Tron over TAF any day, but it really depends on what you like.

      Maybe, maybe not. There have been a few Sterns that have gone up in value after the production run has been completed. I could sell my spiderman that I bought NIB for the same money I paid, maybe even more. I suspect Tron is going to be the same.

      Once the prouduction run is done, they are not going to depreciate. I've already noticed that trend. Around Christmas there were plenty of Tron Pros out there for $3,600 to $3,800. I don't think that is the case anymore.

      I with you RobT. GO with the Tron. I owned TAF and the game is great...for a few months. Simple and the music becomes horrid.

      Yeah but aren't they doing another Pro run in the summer??

      You've already got 2 90s games so maybe some new blood in there wouldn't be such a bad idea.

      Have had both of them and my vote is for Tron - just a fun game that keeps saying "just one more". The combos are a blast. Easy to mod with EL Wire as well.

      Word from the local distributor is Tron will not be re-run. AC/DC is selling like hotcakes and Stern, at this point, want to continue to run it. Of course, that could change, but that's what I'm told at this point. If it is re-run, the price will likely go up another couple of hundred....because Stern can and people continue to accept this nonsense.

      I don't think the distributor is saying this to run up sales, either. I believe they are now sold out of Trons.

      Cheers,
      Duane

      I have never owned any pin that has a stronger "just one more game" pull than Tron. IM and BSD have it, but not to the same extent as Tron.

      I actually made it to Portal last night. Not an easy task!

      Trying to sell my TAF to get a Tron so there's my answer.

      Really?

      I love 'just one more game pins' and I also love IM, FT, TS, WH20 so maybe I need to give TRON more time as I never had it down as addictive.

      Tron.

      TAF has fugly art and a wishy washy looking cabinet. It sold tons because of a popular theme and the right features hitting the market at the right time. Did I mention the sounds are annoying?

      I would consider both but Im sure TAF wouldn't stay very long. Either one is easy to sell and TAF will likely hold value better.

      I heard they're doing another run of Tron after the initial demand for AC/DC is filled.

      Tron is a better player IMHO.

      Addams Family is my Green Eggs and Ham. I would get the Tron Pro and mod it.
