THAT's ME!!!

#5652 3 years ago

Why would ever drop the shot into the beer?...I just do the shot then chase w beer, wash, rinse, repeat, until I get fuzzy....

Might have to open it up and change the orange LED's to blue...

Any other mod ideas?....Labnip?

Do I feel a (Lionman!) coming on?

I don't believe one is able to post those words without a stern warning from the upper management.

Then why give me 50 achievement points for owning and caressing a lion... Upper management should give us a google plex of achievement points for owning TRON

Just got back from a weekend long Wondercon in LA. Picked up a Tron Identity Disk and some sort of Droid. Couldn't find Quora or I would have posted a pic.IMG_00004136_(resized).jpg

#5659 3 years ago

Let's see some pics of you holding the identity disc lit up with your TRON outfit on.

I feel shame for posting this but i heard they might be making a star wars pin

Ha.. Not a Cosplay person. Only there for comic art and spotting the latest trends. TRON is always a solid icon with Users and Programs. "I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day..."

What's an ID disc going for these days? Would make a fun topper.

They are there, but never checked on prices. Mine is a record with daft punk songs. Tons of exhibitors are making some sick custom sabers with crazy specs!

Someone sells a flasher kit for the apron, I think I bought mine from PBL, not sure if he still sells them...

Does anyone know where I can find a Chrome Stern armor for a decent price ? The one at pinballdecals is quite expensive and pinballrefinery has been out of stock for months. It could be a used one if some LE owner upgraded his with the laser cut ones.

#5671 3 years ago

For the pro that isn't the correct apron in Tattman's pic

TRON apron has 2 slots at the bottom and didn't have the 2 circular cutouts but I suppose you could modify things, either way you will have to drill into your pf

yes that is the newer style LE apron. I drilled two holes in the playfield.

Quoted from tatman9999:

Even the older style one had to drill 4 holes anyway for those flat bar pieces the apron slides over......so yeah......you gonna try doing flashers straight out those 2 holes? I know my Metallica has the flasher sockets riveted to the apron insert plastics, cant remember how Avengers had them mounted....

My LE Apron doesn't have those holes in the front, but does have the slits for sliding through the metal guides (which are attached to playfield) My flashers fire through the lenses, but cant remember how the bulb socket if mounted (I'll have to look tonight...I changed them to some killer LED's but been some time ago....

I've never seen those round holes on an apron before....how does that attach to PF in the front ?

(fwiw, the last LE apron I bought was raw from Terry, and had to punch a center hole for EL lit emblem on my IM upfit)...curious about yours......

Apron flasher sockets on Xmen and Tron were just screwed into the play field below the apron insert. I believe Avengers was the first apron style to have the flasher sockets pointed directly out those 2 round cutouts.

Thanks for some pin knowledge , Flank....id never seen ( or noticed, because I've played Avengers) those holes before. They're not on my LE, and my flashers are just screwed into playfield, firing up into the lenses....how is it secured in the front without the slits and metal guides?

Drilled 2 holes in playfield. Then there are nuts on the bottom.

Got it.....thanks for info ( I'll bet flashers firing from those 2 holes will look deadly!!!) I will stash this info in the pinball side of my brain for future reference ( limited ram left though....Ill probably forget by next week)

Throwing a soiree with some 55+ non-pinheads this weekend. Giving away cheesy prizes for best scores on each pin. Any guesses on how many plays Tron gets?

Winner gets a camping trip with centerflank!

Quoted from Erik:

In that case, I guess 3,245,654.

Spare Paranoids or original Flynn's plastic? Discuss.

I went for the Space Paranoids because the full size Flynn's sign overpowers the smaller plastic. Plus a directional RED flasher underneath, angled up and slightly away, makes it look like the recogniser is 'firing'.

#5684 3 years ago

First time to portal today. No idea what I was doing but it sure was a lot of fun. Love the soundtrack also.

I put the space paranoids plastic in mine, looks great with a blue flasher underneath.

I believe it will retain its title, as it's been particularly brutal lately, so game times will be nil.Actually had several dads last season that couldn't walk from it ( thinking they could get a good game in)....fools they were ( and most profanity heard from that area)

It is one night where I really enjoy watching other's play over jumping in myself....

Picked up a tron as my first pinball about three weeks ago, it was a PRO with 6000 plays on it. wasn't even updated to latest code. i dont know if 6000 plays is considered alot but i feel it was a good deal. Machine was a bit dirty and had original lighting. Here is a picture after a nice clean / wax. And of course a bunch of upgrades.

Welcome to the club, if it doesn't have one, get a clear disc asap!

Edit---BTW, Great choice for your first pin, you are the smartest Pinside Apprentice ever!

#5695 3 years ago

not sure what that is. Pm me if you would please

#5696 3 years ago

Flank...I've officially added Scotch to the accepted adult beverage list...figured this should add a nice wrinkle to the adult play. I HAVE to insure the audits are correct, and insure the machines stay up, so I'll be indulging around 5 ( positive this is mandated host behavior for the club).
