My TRON LE info (LE #289)
Serial # 230920

#852 6 years ago

I'll update the database as well.... but for the time being, my first NIB pinball is finally here.
Tron 2D backglass..... Serial # 237282

It's hidden in the garage for now and will be a surprise for the kids come Sunday morning when I have time to set it up.

new in the garage #237206

Worked late today and have to work tomorrow, have to pay for this pin somehow but have to wait until later tomorrow to set it up.

#854 6 years ago

Congrats to the first nib buyers, i can imagine how exciting that must be.

Enjoy your runs!

#856 6 years ago
Quoted from bobbyconover:

If anyone knows a distributor who still has some of these available, could you let me know? I needed to get some financial stuff sorted out before ordering and looks like I've just barely missed out, based on the guys I've talked to so far.

I still have some left for November Run.

#857 6 years ago
Quoted from Gexchange:

I still have some left for November Run.

The more the merrier!

I, for one, welcome my new Stern Thanksgiving Overlords, but hope it gets here a little before then so I can have a unboxing party that people might actually show up to.

#858 6 years ago

Is the November run is a confirmed thing or not? I hope everybody gets a chance to pick this game up. I for one thought I'd never get (be able to afford) a NIB pin. Luckily I could pick up some overtime at work and generate the cash I needed.
If there's anybody sitting on the fence about it.... just do it. I'm really tight with my money and after I told Bobby ('benepinballs' here on Pinside) to order one for me.....I was thinking after getting on the phone --- 'what the hell did I just do'?

I frickin' love this machine... and I would have kicked myself later if I hadn't pulled the trigger. No regrets what-so-ever.
I'm going to post a 'Good Guy alert' for Benepinballs later.... I had a hell of a time with getting anytime off of work to pick up my machine (that damn overtime), and he bent over backwards to see it got to me safely.

If you haven't puchased one yet and you're reading this... get ahold of Gexchange for the November run. I do know that Bobby has one from this latest one NIB for sale available. Probably still on CL in Omaha.

Cliffy's are on now and I just need the pinbits protectors and the arcade mod to come in.
Downside: my RBION looks so old now.

#859 6 years ago

Glad Stern made a new batch, I really like the new back glass

Just noticed almost the exact same score. I don't really understand the rules yet but got to SOS promptly drained.

#860 6 years ago

I agree. The only thing I didn't like about the Tron pin was the backglass.....but I love the new one! Rai, how did you get yours to stay on the ceiling?

2012-10-22_21.04.55.jpg

#861 6 years ago

Does the new backglass also have the 3D effect like the previous one? It looks quite awesome!

#862 6 years ago

It does not.

#863 6 years ago

I’m curious, how long is the stock Clu lightcycle in the Pro? I’ve got some Tron Legacy toys lying around and wonder if it’s the same dimensions.

#864 6 years ago

Going from memory, it's about 2.5".

#865 6 years ago
Quoted from herg:

Cool thanks! What I have should be the same scale.

#866 6 years ago
Quoted from Scuba_Steve:

If you have the diecast Spinmaster toys, that's what's already on there. If you have the lighted cycles from the stores, they're MUCH bigger. The Hallmark ornaments are a little bit bigger than the diecast, but not ludicrous-large like the store toys.

It is the diecast stuff. Is it wrong of me to sort through my kids toys looking for these to decorate a pin???

Scuba_Steve: It is not wrong at all!

Brought a Tron pro home from expo this weekend. Now to decide what gets folded up as I am completely out of room.... That or a machine ends up in the kitchen...

You can store the Autobot here, dude. I'll even do all the driving. You can get it back next Louisville Expo. Sound good?

#871 6 years ago

what are the options for LED'ing the new 2 backbox...also what color leg protectors would you recommend for TRon?

#872 6 years ago
Quoted from whoknowsgoi:

No leg protectors needed on the new batch. They come preinstalled like AC/DC and Xmen.

Just Bling Tron out .. I've already spent close to $ 1000.00 since receiving mine 3-weeks ago

and add Yr mod Pict's to Tron mod's, The Brag-n Thread ..

Quoted from whoknowsgoi:

I just mailed my 2D translite to Kim at http://www.kimballspinballs.com/products.html and he's going to be making up an LED backbox kit for it. He should have my translite by this Friday and I'm sure he'll be working on the backbox kit soon. He's got a video for his other Tron backbox kits and I'm sure he'll have one up for the 2D translite once it's ready to roll.

Well played sir!

#876 6 years ago

"That's it Buckles, you're really on the ball!"

#877 6 years ago

Well if we didn’t have guys like Kim in the pinball world we wouldn’t have things such as cool backbox kits, lit recognizer mods, Iron Man mods, etc... and I’m more than happy to help someone like him if I can.

I'm sure he'll do up a cool backbox kit and that in turn will benefit all of us, so it's all good!

#878 6 years ago

Anyone in on the Nov. run heard any rumors about timeframes yet? Getting extremely antsy. I have fixed one of my three broken pins and promised my local friends to get them all running before it's delivered.

#879 6 years ago

Rumors I'm Hearing is Middle of Nov +/- a few days

We ended up just putting BSD in the kitchen... its halloween decoration.

Where in Dallas are you? Was it just a long time from when they said it shipped to when it got to you? =P

I think Dallas must have more Trons per Capita than any city on the planet...

#885 6 years ago

I think Dallas must have more Trons per Capita than any city on the planet.

Hmm, I wonder why...

3601607617_14c07bf993.jpg

#886 6 years ago

know of any suppliers that have some in Canada?

#887 6 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Josh, I am in North Dallas.. for whatever reason, my tron was just sitting there in the wherehouse ready to be shipped.. it was to be shipped Monday, but it finally was picked up on Tuesday.. and was delivered on Friday.

If you look at my list, black_rose was # 237307, yet mine was 237285, and he got his Tron like what seemed like 2 weeks ago. I am not going to say who I got mine through, but I paid a premium price from what others have paid.. thinking that I would get a quicker response.. etc. Go figure. I know who not to go through now. I have asked for something from them as I feel I did not get what I have paid for.. but they were located on the east coast.. so we will see.

And yeah, I LOVE that Green building in Downtown Dallas. I think that is the Bank of America building or something.

#888 6 years ago

I still have a few left for November run, but very few. Trons are such a hot item right now, Can't wait for the Fiber optic kit to come out.

#889 6 years ago

Gexchange, any word on when they will start the November run?

#890 6 years ago
Quoted from vtec16:

Word I'm hearing is middle of the month, but at this time thats unconfirmed.

LOL. EPIC. WIN.

Well, at least once they got it out the door it went pretty fast?

Reason I was asking was because some people will call "Plano" or "Denton" "North dallas".....which IMO it's not. To me, "North Dallas" is like where I live... around 635/75...where Dallas butts up into Richardson/Garland!

I am getting one, and someone who posts here a few miles from me is getting one too. We're gonna tag-team the mods LOL.

You're right, it's the Bank of America Plaza. The green is argon gas.

*edit* Oh, and stop trolling my posts, lady.

I currently live in Carrollton. btw.
Just happy to have it. =)

Cool. I end up over there all the time. I was at Tanners the other day buying a 1lb solder spool to finish Space Shuttle and transistors for Time Machine that I hopefully won't have to actually use.

Our NIB Tron is #237151 (Canada).

#898 6 years ago

Had a gathering tonight and everyone liked Tron but did get some comments that is was too hard. Apparently the set up from the Chicago expo was a bit unforgiving... I've been enjoying it, but most of the players tonight were not pinball people.....

Got the call from Trent today and mine will be delivered tomorrow (or today since it is after midnight). Only hours to go. Oh, and with the rules and objectives being on the light side, harder is better, IMO.

#900 6 years ago

Awesome! its a great game... let my LE go a little too soon but always said a pro would be the game to have!

The Flipout tournament set up is a little tough, but makes it a challenge. Nice that I have some real high scores to try to beat a least
