with NO doubt, i miss my Sorcerer...

#1702 5 years ago

ok guys, i think its THE right topic to ask, i dont wanna create a new flaming one with pro & cons, going nowhere...

here's the story : i got my TRON LE from the begining & i still enjoy it, no doubt about that
but (yes, but... ) i also want to see & try something else, and from days i'm now torturing my brain
i got some offers (deals) already for my pin, all seems nice, but not as attractive as what i have in mind, 2 ideas :

- a deal 1 vs 1 against a ST LE NIB (i actually got that proposal)

- selling the TRON LE, and than buying 2 NIB, a ST pro + MET pro !

to me, the second idea is more appealing, as i'm really in love with the MET pro at the moment (and this should grow with the new code coming)
i dont know about the ST, i played only few games on it, of course seems good, but... !? and what about a pro VS LE

now, we're in a TRON lovers topic, i'm a TRON fan, than you (lovers of the lamp), tell me what you think

Blasphemy!! You should be banned just by asking such thnings!
just kidding. I would go for option 2. You get 2 machines and good machines.
You can always get another Tron in a few years. Probably the pro.

#1704 5 years ago

(biglol, was waiting for this kind of words, and it takes less than a quarter)

#1705 5 years ago

I would never sell my Tron Pro.

But... I would do Option 2 - except I would go Met Pro & an AC/DC instead of ST.
I don't even like either Metalica or AC/DC, and am a Star Trek fan... but after playing ST several times, I found it un-exciting. AC/DC is a better game IMO.

Of course... I already have a STTNG, so basically already have the best of both worlds... Star Trek & Lamp (I mean Tron).

ok, you've won...
my NBA is just gone, than no more "need" to sell the TRON LE at the moment !!!
honor is safe, may the lamp accept my apologise...

(and of course, will bring only one pin to replace, i've gone for the MET pro)

#1708 5 years ago

Im currently being pressured to sell my restored EDOT and Tron LE …The money is tempting.

I wouldn't sell Tron if I were you. But if you are, definently go ST Pro and Met Pro. STLE isn't worth a straight trade, it plays exactly like the Pro version so you would be giving up a Met Pro for some pretty lights on the side, a backglass and a kickback, not worth it to me. Go ST Pro and Met Pro if you do the trade.

#1711 5 years ago
Quoted from retired_user_101:

WHHHHHHAT !!!
but in 5 years, or 10 years... will you regret it, or be happy with it?
i'm not speaking from personal experience, but just what I've read from others, but the other EDOT owners and TRON LE owners who sell, say they regret it about a year later, and some go and buy another one. just saying what i'm reading
if the $ are insane, you could re-buy the machines from elsewhere, and pocket some $ too (after repairs & mods: hopefully).

Yeah you're right! I would regret it and since i got both machines for an absolute bargain there is no way I would be able to get them for that same price ever again

#1713 5 years ago

if you can sell it for 7-8k..... DO IT DO IT

I love me some Tron but as I have said before some of you have really underestimated the allure of a nice lamp.

everyone said it was the bets mod ever...

Or did you hear it was the BIGGEST mod ever?

Brettbutler, disappointed , arcade mod way too small. Please make bigger and re-post

Topper oozes awesomeness. Wants the speaker lights too. PART IT OUT!!

Here is my story.

I was certainly late in joining the club. I played a Tron pro on route. No leds, early code, and on quiet. I liked the game, but wasn't a huge fan at the time. Eventually, I was fortunate enough to play an LE at a local pinsider's house. I was blown away. Grew on me quick and I decided I needed one. I was out of room, so one had to go. Was able to work out a trade with another pinsider - his nicely modded Tron pro for my modded TSPP. He had already done a ton of the necessary mods and done a great job (lit recognizer, light cycles that light up when the ramps were hit, leds in inserts, arcade mod, lit flipper buttons, pinbits plastic set, etc). He had also ordered and just received Eli's ramp kit, custom shooter and the pinbits pop bumper set but did not install them, so he threw those into the deal.

Another extremely kind pinsider (purpledrillmonkey) had just installed his Eli kit on his pro, and he was kind enough to come over and put mine on. Took him half the time to do mine as it took to do his due to what he learned. Would have taken me 4 times the time! As you can see, he did an awesome job.

I have also added the pop bumper kit, shooter rod, Zuse mod from Hooked (love it), mirror blades from pinball side mirrors (awesome guys to deal with), changed some leds in the inserts to my tastes (super bright 4-leds in the red arrows, blue disc lights and purples in the Tron target lights to match the color of the Tron modes in Eli's ramp kit), frosted yellow and blue leds behind the playfield (looks great on the light cycles), custom coin cards, and frosted leds in the gi lighting.

This was a third run, so it has the decals on the sides, and it also came with Quorra's car (where the hallmark cycles are now). It was just sitting in the coin box. So I decided to add it to the left side of the playfield as it looked a bit empty on that ramp. Added a metal spacer instead of the screw, cut out a piece of plastic I had laying around, dremeled the edges to be smooth, and screwed the car to the plastic. I really like how that turned out. I'd like to light it up somehow, but it looks great regardless.

Also added a powered external sub for $80 (can run 2 games, so its in essence a $40 mod). WELL worth it for this game. It sounds awesome.

As a stock pro, the game is great. Modded out with Eli's kit and the sub, the game is an absolute assault on the senses. Favourite game for me at the moment - oddly enough along with 2 other Borg games, Xmen and IM.

That's gorgeous, man! Certainly more elegant than Lamp.

#1726 5 years ago

Forgot to say that I added the topper from pinheadpuckguy. Love the look of that too with the blue lights lighting it up.

I have his toppers on my Tron, Ironman and Xmen.

I have the same topper - it came with my Pro when I bought it. I wasn't sure what to think when I first saw it, since it's my first topper. But it's really grown on me, and I like the extra blue light from above. Really nice!

You have two great games. Both fast and intense. Looked at your wishlist, and if that is your style, I'd for sure recommend IM. Its a fun game that is in the same vein as ST and Tron. If you want some diversity, you certainly cannot go wrong with LOTR. Unmatched depth, outstanding rules and theme integration. Lot longer ball times, but has an epic feel. Just my 2 cents.

#1729 5 years ago

I'd actually love to track down an IM, but IMHO they're really overpriced. It would mean a lot more to me if there were actually movie voice callouts instead of the impersonator, but it's otherwise a nice, albeit simple machine. I do love fast, flow games like that.

I had a NIB LoTR, and I still regret selling it. My wife was even more unhappy that I did.

#1730 5 years ago

any you tron le guys have that daft punk multiball video

#1732 5 years ago

I got the pinball life clear ones. Not sure if they're different than pinballcenter's. They look pretty good to me. I don't think I would put them on my other games but on Tron it works. Firmer than the factory black ones but I'm not a purist

Quoted from Erik:

Do they have all the sizes needed? They didnt have any 2inch stuff last time I looked which is for the slings....Oh just checked he has some in stock....Sweet!

edit-----ordered a butt load of transparent rings, TRON is gonna look sexy!!!!!

#1739 5 years ago

Reason # 42 why I love Tron. The left pop is just darn evil as it slams the ball over to the upper flipper not once, not twice but three times- and I am always a half second behind it. Durp.

#1740 5 years ago

Here's a little peek at mine that i'm moving around at the moment,

I finally got portal multiball! I had to finish almost all the modes in SOS to do it too. Worst part was I had the sound off cause my son was making me listen to a song. Still F'n stoked!!

#1742 5 years ago

I might have a lead on the ULTIMATE Tron mod fellas........

#1743 5 years ago

@Brettbuttler , You can have this if you want. Slightly peeled blue but I'm sure its better than the old one you have in your EDOT?

Nice! Good to see you're still enjoying the machine, hard to believe it's already been 3 months since I made the trek up to the Loops with that bad boy.

2 of the best pins ever made!
