Quoted from smassa:

Hey Ben, If you prefer a orange DMD to the look of a red let me know. I took the stock out of my LE when I ordered the Blue Xpin DMD and would trade you it for the Red LED dmd & put that one in my SM. Not sure how the red display looks on Tron.
Let me know.

I'm good with the red thanks. I might try swapping it out with my spiderman if I get curious.

Still trying to be patient here.

You should have gotten a Ship Notification today, yours leaves Stern Tomorrow on its way direct to you.

#703 7 years ago

When can I come over, TZBen?

Herg will be very happy when he wakes up tomorrow and reads that.

Quoted from AkumaZeto:

TRON LE will drop lots when eli's kit goes public. The buss system is better than the le code. The le will never be able to cycle independently unless they code it different. I wouldn't expect it to plumit but i bet it goes down to 6

Then why do LOTR LE's sell for more then standard LOTR's when they were able to crack the code and install a shakers in the standard LOTR's? Can eli's kit function off the game code like the LE or is it based entirely off inserts and switches? I am sure it will amazing but saying that will cause the price to drop on LE's is crazy and just an assumption since there is no proof to back it up. If anything it will likely do the opposite and increase the price on LE's. If anything this mod will likely increase the price of the pro's and if that happens then the LE's will go up I bet, just like BSM did once SM prices increased. I recently sold my Pro to get a LE and I was well aware of eli's kit, but I don't by machines as investments so if it goes down then so be it. The game is a keeper for me so I am not too worried about resale value.

Lets not forget the Daft Punk Muli ball as well.

Quoted from rai:

Jeff Bridges character?
is the movie any good?

I saw it in 3D and in my opinion the film was like a art piece. Story was ok, and if a fan a little worse but the music and the layered 3D texturing made it Visually stunning and blew Avatar out of the water. Best 3D to date in terms of detail and texture.

Quoted from Gexchange:

Yeah, thanks.

I think a combination of events on my end really delayed it. I had only paid the deposit when JJ called to let me know they were ready to ship. I didn't have the checkbook with me, so I missed the mail deadline that day, the check went out the next day. Columbus Day likely delayed either the mail or the check clearing. I still had to work on CD, though.

Yes, he will!

I saw the movie in imax 3d when first released and that was certainly an experience. I watched it again at home with my kids. The story is still convoluted but it is a spectacle to see and hear even on a smaller screen.

It does make for a better pin than movie. The movie assets translated over to the game very well.

For people who may not know or have forgotten, here are the differences the LE has over the pro in one complete list:

1 - Daft Punk Multiball
2 - Silver around PF inserts
3 - Drop targets instead of standups
4 - Moving Recognizer
5 - Lighted ramps
6 - LED insert PCBs
7 - Chrome trim
8 - Metal apron with clear blue windows w/ flashers
9 - Metal under PF rails
10 - Traditional lockdown bar and receiver
11 - LE numbered plaque on backbox and signed certificate of authentisity
12 - Alternating color flashers under the spinner (updated info from pinball_customs)
13 - Individually controlled recognizer inserts in front of the 3 target (updated info from docquest)
14 - Hologram sticker on translite (updated info from docquest)
15 - Free t-shirt promotion for buying the LE (updated info from docquest)

Quoted from Tekman:

1 - Daft Punk Multiball
2 - Silver around PF inserts
3 - Drop targets instead of standups
4 - Moving Recognizer
5 - Lighted ramps
6 - LED insert PCBs
7 - Chrome trim
8 - Metal apron with blue windows w/ flashers
9 - Metal under PF rails
10 - Traditional lockdown bar and receiver
11 - LE numbered plaque on backbox and signed certificate of authentisity

Thankfully the only gameplay differences are the drop targets and extra multiball.. (unlike the newer LE games). I can live without the rest of it, and almost all can be added to your pro if you really wanted to do so.

You did forget the alternating colour flashers under the spinner though!

I respect that LE owners love their Tron LE's, but I'm quite happy with my pro.

And for those of us in your November run? Any indication they are going to run them early?

I downgraded my LE for a pro so I'm going by memory here, but doesn't the LE also have individually controlled recognizer inserts in front of the 3 targets? They sync with the recognizer movement so if you hit the lit insert it counts more towards dropping the bank vs hitting an unlit target.

Also the 3D translight also has a sticker on it with your LE number. My LE's original translight looked misregistered. When they send me a replacement I had to carefully remove the sticker and attach it to the new translight.

I also got a coupon for a free stern T-shirt with my LE. Not sure if the pro version had that or not.

Yep, I forgot the inserts move with the Recognizer. Updated the list.

Yes I agree with you.

The standups make it Pro play even better but Daft Punk MB would be nice add for the pro.

I've never played the pro, but I've been told that you can get a shot at Gem with a bounce off the standups.

#719 7 years ago
Quoted from Tekman:

It is possible but I don’t ever use that way. It adds some speed to the game. It is only three targets so I don’t think it makes that much of a difference either way. I really like how they did the differences between the Pro and LE with Tron I wish they were still doing it this way. They made enough differences for people really want a LE bout not so many differences that the pro would suck. Both versions have great game play.

#720 7 years ago

Getting our Tron pro on Monday hopefully. The distributor mentioned Stern ran a new run of AC/DC Premiums last week too which is sweet.

The several times I have played an LE, I never noticed *ANY* of this. Not saying that's applicable for everyone, just saying if it didn't stand out enough for me to actively think about it, I don't really feel like it's enough of a standout feature to justify a price increase.

daft punk does not stand out too much if you never start the mode

I got a call from the freight delivery people that they can deliver my Tron in just a few hours. Of course this has to be on the day I'm working 1-9pm. Oh well, will be a nice treat to have when I get back home tonight. I was told mid-to-late next week by Playdium, so this is a nice surprise.

I watch a lot of 3D movies and found Tron Legacy's 3D to be reaaaally subtle to the point of almost not seeming 3D. IMO the best "shot in 3D" since Avatar are Harold & Kumar 3D Xmas & Prometheus. Although they were converted to 3D, The Avengers & Titanic are really amazing in 3D! Animated stuff always looks the best in 3D...Cloudy w/ a Chance of Meatballs, Megamind, Tangled, & Despicable Me look amazing!

#734 7 years ago

The translite looks so awesome in person. Much better than the original DVD cover one imo.

Furhter OT......Although not quite oscar caliber material, I though the 3D in journey to the center of the earth (and the sequel as well) was very entertaining. It has a lot of the gimmicky pop out effects as well as tons of deep depth. I highly recommend it if you are into 3D.

#737 7 years ago

Libations for everyone!! must be heard through a full flipper fid sound system. The first must have mod on Tron.

Now lets see more pics of Gem and Quorra on those new decals.

On these new runs, are the ramps protected or are the Cliffy ramp protectors the way to go? My IM had ramp protectors installed from the factory, and it was a later run.

The effects were not over the top as to poke you in the eye but the layering in the foreground, mid ground and background with the use of translucent layering really added to the other world feeling. Not saying the movie takes place off screen but half way out and the other half within. XD/IMAX size screens add to the effect.
