Has anyone gotten a 3D translight and normal amber dmd with there October run of Tron?

You didn't did you?

#953 6 years ago

Yes, to my very big surprize my Oct. 2nd 2012 Tron has a 3D trans and a amber dmd. I like the 3D trans better but the even bigger surprise for me was the dmd. To me the red dmd just does't match the game. My luck is either extremely good or extremely bad normally.

#954 6 years ago

That's weird.. Has this happened to anyone else?
Are you still able to put a blue xpin dmd in if they come with a normal amber one?

#955 6 years ago

Geez, I'd love the original translite! Have been searching up a storm for it!

Cheers!
Adam.

#956 6 years ago

That's odd cant wait to open mine up now, I'm hoping its a Tron trans and not one from another game lol

#957 6 years ago

Peter, I hope you get Wheel of Fortune for that extra surprise.

Quoted from Propaganda:

And you are proud of that?

Yep, I love that car. Hauls A$$ 0-60 in 5.2 does great in the snow, and I can Slide a pin in the back! I customize my motorcycles too, want me to list those off as well to prove my point?

It is a great car and lots of very cool mods are available for it.

Mine was manufactured the same day. I got ripped. Mine is 2D and red LED display (that needs to be replaced).

Can you post your SN of the machine please? =) unless I missed it in the commotion..

#962 6 years ago

Fingers crossed that the November run starts this week.

I've still got mine crossed that they get delivered next week.

I have all fingers and toes crossed for that!

I tried to cross my toes but it was pretty painful.

#966 6 years ago

I would love to have mine by Black Friday!

#967 6 years ago

I just want mine to work. Got parts on the way.

#968 6 years ago

Red LED looks fine to me and I prefer the 2D artwork as well.

I'm glad Stern brought this title back into production. I would consider a NIB LOTR, SM, or IM if they ever come back around.

#969 6 years ago

I'm starting to think it will be more like early December. Here we are in Mid November and no word.....

Production starts this week. So shipping should, hopefully, start at the end of the week and all of next.

I did not know that. You made my night! Thanks

Yep, thats the word i got from JJ at GEX.
Just paid off TRON 2d today. Can't wait...

It looks like you’ve been having a lot of issues with your Tron and I really sympathize with you on the matter. I have one question...Is all of the hassle worth owning a Tron? Has Stern done right by you?

#974 6 years ago
Quoted from treborlicec:

Anyone that wants to trade an amber for a red, I'm game.

They are taking care of me. I just hate the wait. I should have parts here by the week's end. This is my 3rd NIB Stern and it is frustrating not getting to play it. The TSPP has been great since day one. AC/DC only had a few minor LED issues (plus LEDs keep dying, but not sure who's to blame on that). If this had been my first NIB experience, I'd probably be less likely to go for another, but over the years, I've learned #&*@ happens and parts fail. Tron is worth it. It is a great game.

#976 6 years ago

I'm picking mine up tomorrow!

#977 6 years ago
Quoted from Da_Topper:

I'm picking mine up tomorrow!

What?! Lucky...

#978 6 years ago

Hmmmmm.....JJ you will call me tomorrow (the Jedi mindtrick has to work!)

#979 6 years ago

Mine is done and boxed should ship out by Friday.

JJ will call me tomorrow - (The Group Jedi mindtrick has to work!)

#981 6 years ago

Nice try but wont work on JJ.
treborlicec...you have my sympathy as well brother. Our serial numbers are real close but sounds like the pins reached us in much different condition. Good on you for keeping a great attitude about the situation. Tron is my first nib and it would of really bummed me out on the whole experience. Get it fixed and get to portal. Word.

#982 6 years ago

Mind tricks a don't work on JJ only Money - Still sitting by the phone waiting for the a devilry has been scheduled call

#983 6 years ago
Quoted from starbase:

Thats awesome news to read. Did Stern contact you to let you know your game is done and ready for shipping? I've never bought a NIB before so I have no idea how this works.

Does anyone remember how many Trons Stern is producing in this run? I remember reading it somewhere before but I can't remember the number or where I read it.

#984 6 years ago

Just going from what I was told when I placed my order - Initial run was 100 - sold out so fast they did another run at 100 - then the rumor was that it was cut back. However, I am still in the November run so the cut back could be just rumor.

#985 6 years ago

Got the news that mine is shipping today!

#986 6 years ago
Quoted from tvbenk:

Woot. My son texted me that my parts are in from Stern. I'll post later on the results.

#987 6 years ago

I also got the call this morning that mine were shipping today.

#988 6 years ago

If you have owned a Tron for over 6 months, and it is still stock, post a picture.

I've never seen one.

Does adding Cliffy's count?

No dice on the new I/O board. Still have all my solenoids dead. New ballast did fix my backbox light, but I'll need to get a new bulb cuz it killed the old one. Now to see what Chas wants to try next.

#992 6 years ago

Wow, that sucks. You've really had some terrible luck with that machine.

#993 6 years ago
Quoted from herg:

Yeah, we probably only had 6 hours of play time on it, so far. It's frustrating.

#994 6 years ago

Sorry Treb, sounds really shitty. Hope you get it straightened out.

#995 6 years ago
Quoted from Propaganda:

Does it count if I have it in the box yet?

...and no, I didn't buy it for flipping purposes with any luck... it's for keeping. There is a chance it will be set up directly after coming out of the box at the MGC this year running a TOPS Tournament.

#996 6 years ago

For anyone who bought the Hallmark ornaments, is the rider's helmet supposed to be removable?

#997 6 years ago
Quoted from jayhawkai:

I don't think so. Mine are not. Just a little glue should do the trick.

#998 6 years ago

I got an odd question...anyone know the size of the box and pallet? I am thinking I may not actually be able to get it in my door without unboxing it!!!

#999 6 years ago

Oh nevermind, looks like it's on the bill of lading. DUERP! 31inx31inx60in.

#1000 6 years ago

I think that's just the size of the box, not including the pallet.
