Coasterguy saves the morning already!
Now if they could only get the light beam to look like WW!
THAT would be cool!
I retract my "Pop Tart" statement (for now!) and hope for a smooth flow-y experience!
Data discs crossed...
Man, and I was hoping for a BLUE display standard..!
Can we say "aftermarket"?
Thanks, coasterguy! That's a very slick looking game! Compared to TRS, it's a quantum leap in the art department. I'm beginning to regret the deal I made with my wife preventing me from buying any more pins this year until WOZ. Looks like I'm either going to have to sell one of my current machines, or send her to the spa for a week.
It is a shame they didn't include Sam's (shipping container) "Lair" and his Ducati where the TRON side target bank is...
At least put FLYNN'S (Arcade) storefront brick arch (with neon sign) above the front of the Disc target bank... Sheesh! Now I have to learn (AND get tooling) up on how to vacuum form plastics!
If you want something done right...
Maybe they will (at least) have "Marv" as an easter egg! MOOOOO...
Already done gweem!
"Ahh this is sooo sweet of you!"
"What's the occasion..?"
I can't just treat someone special out of the blue?
(Eyes start to narrow...)
"WHAT ARE YOU BUYING NOW!?!?!"
"IT BETTER NOT BE ANOTHER PINBALL MACHINE!!"
No, no, I just wanted to give you a "Spa Day", you seemed tired and run down.
"Well O.K... It is a very sweet; nice gesture (walks out of the room...)!"

Does anyone know if they used any EL wire at all on the playfield? I sure hope so, if not that is a real cop out by the design dept. The stuff is dirt cheap, cheaper than LED's and runs on the same voltage. I can see some pretty awesome mods in the future if it is not implemented already.
It does look nicer than many recent sterns, hope to see some really good upclose pics.
Howerver if anyone else noticed it is just the reverse playfield design of Spiderman. WOW way to go design team. Give us something new already!
Here it is. I flipped the pis of spiderman to show what I mean,
Just switch the goblin targets to the other side and you have a tron machine. I'm not bashing it, because a Tron machine is a great Idea and will probably be one of Sterns best sellers. But come on, invest some time and money into giving us something we haven't seen before. Or rehashing old ideas.
The playfield is actually modeled after the Tommy Prototype playfield. They moved the kick out hole on the Prototype Tommy from one side of the lower pop bumpers to the right.
Third upper Flipper is in the same place as Tommy and so are the shots from that flipper
They took out the 3 upper red pop bumpers and put in the spinning disc. The Tommy Protoype plays better than the production Tommy. Flow is better. Can't wait to get my Tron LE to put next to my Tommy Prototype
Ok, it actually looks even closer to Funhouse.
I was thinking the same thing erak! As soon as I saw the flipper on the left I was like "Where's the Trapdoor?" I love going into a melee loop on FH- I mean TRON...
I guess I kind of model my Pinball style after Roger Sharpe (With much LESS spastic dancing). If the shot feels good- I keep repeating it! Even if it does not award any points, I will keep firing away...
Or maybe they're purposefully not going to include any so as to appeal such an obvious mod to the collectors out there that love to tinker as much as they love to play.
That would be the only reason I could see for them not to include it. I agree with you that it is a no brainer to put plenty of el wire on Tron. I had never seen it before it looks pretty cool and would put the looks of the machine over the top.
It is one of their best looking for ages but I am not convinced yet that there will be anything new in the gameplay that has not already been in the last few? Don't get me wrong as would love to play it, but would not buy it. The next 18 months are going to be great......JJ Pins, new Ritchie game as well!
