It actually goes off a lot in Xmen, it's quite noticeable. I put it in Xmen on rareheros advice and I'm glad I listened! But you have an Xmen LE so yours came with a shaker already.

Quoted from Riffbear:

I Need a hand deciding which to sell. TRON LE or Monster Bash? Hehe

Dump MB all day long. Keep the Tron LE.

Eh, you asked the Tron love thread. Anyone who gives advise other than the above gets tossed out of the thread.

Nope, mine doesn't have one I bought it NIB too, so it never had one.

Quoted from Keebler:

I was talking about the front strip, and yeah it's purple because it uses blue and red LEDs. I didn't want to have red LEDs in my machine so I ordered a strip of cool whites, it had issues though. They are sending me a new white/blue strip now.

I like the purple, it gives it a blacklight effect. Looks cool.

Quoted from Keebler:

Wow, 9k, I'm glad I don't live in Canada You'll have to let me know how the shaker performs in your X-Men... I'll probably pick one up in a couple weeks if it's worth it.

Well it is nearly the same price as in the States but then we have to pay 13% sales tax on top of it. Also down there you guys have many distributors so they have to stay competitive. Up here we only have one Stern distributor so they have a monopoly and can charge whatever they want.

What the hell??? I would be contacting Stern about that! Stern is pretty good with that stuff, I'm sure they will send you one. I can't believe you didn't complain, you paid a lot for it.

Ok, that makes sense then. Still sucks though.

Are you sure the LE came with one? I haven't heard anything about that before. I bought mine from a private seller, not a distributor.

I thought every recent LE came with one, Tron LE did and it came out before Xmen LE and the title after Xmen LE has a shaker so why would they skip Xmen LE only??

#759 6 years ago

My Magneto didn't have a shaker. METLE didn't have a shaker either. Stern must pick and choose which LE's get shakers.

Can one of you provide a link to that flipper light strip? Looks cool.

Spotted this the other day from cleaning TRON. It's the pass to get you into the Flynn's arcade at Comic-Con 2010. SUCH GOOD TIMES!

"Alan, you're acting like I'm going to find him sittin' at work, just, "Hey, kiddo, lost track of time."

I have no idea, but that's weird if the LEs before and after it did.

Alright, I took a bunch of pics, I really like the black chrome, its a nice subtle look to them, they are a bit more reflective in person, Ill load them in posts of 3 pics as that always seems to load best for me.

love the black blades!!!

#777 6 years ago

I thought the black mirrors wouldn't look as good, but they are bad ass. Like the regular chrome's older tougher brother.

#778 6 years ago

Just got my black mirrors today to, haven't installed them yet, gotta figure out the left gap, my left ramp rubs the left wall so there is 0 clearance for the mirror, so I'll have to make some adjustments, my black nickel apron should be here soon also.

There is a little wiggle room if you pull the playfield left and right while its vertical against the back box, I also stuck sheets of construction paper in right away to avoid any scuffs/scratches after I got the first blade installed. His youtube video install instructions make it quite easy.

#780 6 years ago

Cool stuff, ya I was gonna go buy some paper or poster board or something to as I hear they scratch easy. Your cab looks real good and now I'm super hyped to get mine on there. I also opted for black mirror flippers with blue rubbers, I haven't put those on yet either but I think the overall look is going to be great.

Which ones did you get? There are black side "mirrors" at $195, and then there are black side "blades" for $90.

The black mirrors at 195, I think the black side blades are really opaque.

If anyone wanted to try, get a quart of gloss black from the paint store, would get you a little reflection for the $12 and a little labor. Post some pics if you try it, you can always cover it with a set of blades later on.

Centerflank,

Nice pics, Thank you! We want to say Thank you for your patients in the wait time. It took us some time to get this product off the ground and had some bumps in the road, but I see it was well worth the bumps. Keep in mind that we will be releasing a new color at the Chicago show not shown on the website. We are trying hard at keeping the price down and colored mirrors, well is not easy to do. The cost of the product alone is crazy, not to mention the labor cost and packaging and just the major over head cost in how much we have to bring in. We have tried so hard at keeping our product protected all the way to your door step. We hope your happy and we are happy to have you as a great customer. Again Thank you so much!

I have to go back on hold for modding, rumor is a super nice Centaur may be on the market soon...

#789 6 years ago

I keep seeing this thread pop up, and I keep seeing this picture, so I just wanted to put this here. If it is on the previous 16 pages, I apologize. I dont have Tron and didnt read this thread. No offense against Tron or anything, but I've seen the money you people put into the mods so I'm staying the heck away from it.

Yeah, Im not into SS's so much but I like that one, has multi ball and all. My only qualification for owning a pin, must have multi ball. I could be wrong but I think the cabinet was redone on that Centaur as well, Ill find out tonight.

#797 6 years ago

finally put 1 gumball on mine, i found its a good idea

#798 6 years ago

Finally got to see Eli's ramp mod installed on a pro. All I can say is wow it looks so sweet and takes it to a different level!! Well worth the $ and effort of install. Hey the ramp mod is kind of similar to lamp so can we now love lamp and TRON the same since they compliment each other so well?

#799 6 years ago

I didn't know where else to post this
