Waiting for the price drop on the used ones... anyone want to trade me one?

Nope. Cedar Point!

Quoted from yuriijos:

Sweet! Universal Studios and Disney for you, Magic Mountain for me. All good.

The Fury is an insane rollercoaster. That "325" in the name is the drop. If you lined up and connected, every rollercoaster at DisneyWorld I don't think you would equal the Fury.

Millennium Force

One of my favorites ever.

Top thrill dragster is incredible too. Not much to look at, but incredible.

Why would they drop? 1-1.3k less for a HUO used one with upgrades and a superior playfield? Would be dumb to buy NIB if a nice used one is available.

Quoted from yuriijos:

That Tron ride looks great but nothing to get too excited about. No inversions, just a bunch of visual effects and speed. It should be more thrilling.

I rode Tron in Shanghai last year. Better then you think and doesn't need any inversions to make it intense.

#258 10 days ago
Quoted from delt31:

I can't wait for stern to vault tron and then everyone will complain how much it is.

Or how crappy the playfield is compared to the originals. I have an early run, well modded pro and don't see any playfield dimpling or other issues. What Stern game in the past 3-4 years can we say that about?

Quoted from epthegeek:

They added the lightcycle run to Shanghai Disney in 2016 and it's been a big hit, so they're copying it for Florida. It doesn't mean they're intending to revive the brand.

I can tell you guys that I had little interest in acquiring the Tron pin until I rode the coaster in Shanghai last April.

The ride and environment was really cool and is mainly what sparked my interest in the pin. I added Tron to my collection last fall.

Won’t lie - I’m itching to see if we get a new code update from sir_tankalot!

Quite happy with it as it is, but a fresh code polish can breathe new life into a relatively older game.

I bought Met Premium partly because of this dedication to code polish and improvement.

Accidentally posted this in the other thread (sorry for repeat post)

Reading this made me realize I’ve had my original version for almost 10 years. Love this game.

In the rules department, I’d like to see :

Earnable extra ball (it is in competition mode BTW, but usually set for points)

Progressive monger jackpots increasing beyond 3 MIL

Triple stack of war machine, monger, whiplash

Bring back Jericho multiball stack (main reason I won’t upgrade from 1.4)

Bring back 50 MIL DoD

Ability to stack war machine after starting whiplash

Skill shots (Lots of options here)

Reduce drone requirement for DoDmb from 4 to 3

Earnable outlane ball save

Thanks for reading

Great list. I’d like to see combos added as well.

Quoted from Rarehero:

Tron is a niche theme. Everyone loves Iron Man...it’s ultra mainstream, and people love him even more since Avengers Endgame. Easy sell to NIBNEWBS.
Theme theme theme.

Maybe, but I also think it's a cheap BOM and no R&D whatsoever (they've already vaulted IM).

When it comes to BOM cost there is a lot of guess work, but I can’t imagine IM has a lower BOM than Tron.

I think they are pretty darn close. The ramps on TRON are more costly, while the main mechanical "toy" on IM is likely more costly than the DISC/BANK. TRON has an extra flipper, which is why I think it beats it by a hair.

It would be so cool if (in general), "vaulted" games were accompanied by software updates with refinements like you've outlined for IM.

Licensing is the other huge factor. Both might cost roughly the same in parts to build but we'll never know how much the rights are for IM vs Tron.

Both Disney properties and IM is clearly the more popular in the mainstream. I'd guess it costs more to license.

Guess all you want but the reality is will we never know. Just cause something is more popular or mainstream doesn't mean it cost more to license. Stern is so cheap I think it might be the opposite or we would have seen TronVE instead. Iron man is dead now so maybe they want to cash in while they can. Tron it getting an attraction built at Disney so they at least still consider it relevant.

Might be the last chance to license Iron Man with these actors before Marvel moves onto its next phase or whatever. That's probably how we ended up with Spider-Man vault. Speaking of, who wouldn't love a comic book Iron Man with updated Monger & Whiplash magnets?

I’ll be amazed if we don’t see another Spider-Man Vault based off Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the MCU.

Upgraded monger magnet? How would you upgrade it? Mines insane!!

Quoted from J85M:

Metal ring around core to prevent mushrooming into the playfield, like the Doc Ock magnet on SMVE.

I agree it’s close, both games are fairly sparse in the feature department. An extra flipper vs two magnets and kickback.
