Quoted from Aurich:

Haha, I know right? Don't think it hasn't occurred to me ...

Excellent! When you can't stand it any longer and come up with something cool, sign me up as your first customer.

#2852 4 years ago

I would buy them as well Aurich. The current ones are grainy and appear almost out of focus to my poor old eyes.

#2853 4 years ago

So since they only sell the blue and yellow plastics now, does that mean that these are now unavailable? Or do they continuously restock these items? For a person looking to get a tron again, who modded the previous one with all these mods, are all these mods stsrting to become hard to get? Not just the plastics, but the big mods, like the Flynn sign, REC mod, arcade mod, ramp kit...etc? I have the hallmark cycle ornaments that i could convert to the mod. I sold mine about a year and half ago...so not sure how many of these mods are still out there, if demand for them is still high? I know I have the option, and most would suggest this, is to just buy a machine with all the mods on it already, but alot of the enjoyment of having that game was being able to install all those mods myself! It was like Christmas every week or so when I would order another mod and install it! I only ordered one mod at a time so I could space it out. I loved watching how it went from bone stock to ultra modded! I want to do that again, even if it costs me more in the long run. It won't be leaving my house again, so not worried about that!

#2854 4 years ago

I haven't followed Pinbits closely enough to know how frequently they restock parts. Maybe give them a call/email and ask?

Oh and I agree on the modding with this game. I'm doing the same thing and ordering a part here and there and enjoying the process.

Quoted from Billy16:

Now the only bummer is the upper images on the apron don't look as good as yours...maybe something to replace these might be in order?

Quoted from Aurich:

Haha, I know right? Don't think it hasn't occurred to me ...

Solution: Put the LE apron with the flashers on your pro

#2856 4 years ago
Quoted from vader1979:

like the Flynn sign

I don't always have a bunch on hand, lately, but the demand has been steady enough month to month to keep me trying to build and sell them when guys want them. Sometimes you've got to wait a week or so, but the Flynn's signs, at least, are still in production.

#2857 4 years ago
Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

Solution: Put the LE apron with the flashers on your pro

I've thought about doing that--be cool to have a metal apron and flashers--but it is a pricey proposition for a relatively minor upgrade. I'm betting Aurich could come up with something pretty nifty...

The real problem is that Stern just uses really low quality printing for those apron decals. They just don't look good, regardless of the design. Fuzzy and faded, just bleh.

The real baller status would be to make both new decals and new plastics with the same image that would go into the the LE style apron so they could be lit up ...

#2860 4 years ago

we can mod our Trons ?

#2861 4 years ago

the quality on the stern apron stickers is pretty sub-par. esp after picking up a set of aurich's ST stickers (its amazing the difference in quality).

i would love to see apron decal replacements for all the stern games (esp tron, im, lotr, acdc, and on an on).

Nice! You got all the misfit toys! My daughter would eat that up. Is there a set or did you have to buy individually?

#2873 4 years ago

thanks bro. you know.... I bought these years back (maybe 5 - 10 years ago) back when k-mart and suncoast video sold them. they actually sold year without santa toys, santa clause is coming to town, and Rudolph too. if you look on ebay the good Rudolph ones are made by playing mantis toys. wish i had more room to set them all up!

Gone. Donated to https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/2015-march-of-dimes-arcadepinball-prize-raffle

A little bit of recent winter cleaning revealed the following Trontastic items that I don't need.

Offering them up here first, to you, the faithful, before posting them for sale elsewhere. Asking prices below; shipping from USA 91101 not included.

1 - Black plastic apron + under-card mounting hardware, with triangle stickers still stuck. From my Tron Pro. Looks great. I'd say "like new," but there's probably a scratch hiding in there somewhere. $40.

SOLD 2 - Tron Legacy identity disc toy. Works fine. Clean. Needs new batteries (tested good w/ my benchtop power supply--didn't have spare batteries in this size). Stand intact but collapses if you put the disc on--it took me 2 minutes to gingerly balance the disc on it for a moment for a photo. Don't be fooled. Stand was flimsy from the start--making your own, or glue it or something. $10.

SOLD 3 - Space Paranoids poster. 18" W x 24" H. From thisoldgame.com. Bought through KLOV almost 5 years ago. Added little tabs of Scotch tape at the corners through which I stuck pins, so I didn't punch holes in the poster itself. Has a bit of crinkling & whitening around the perimeter, but it shows well. $25.

Tons more pics: https://www.dropbox.com/home/4Sale/Tron

Discount for multiple purchases! :]

Thanks,
-Jason

snaps!

#2886 4 years ago

Does Tron have a cut out in the head to run a cable through for a topper like TWD? I've never paid attention.

#2887 4 years ago

Here's what my extra tron LE backbox looks like inside.
I guess would have to use the vent holes in back?

#2892 4 years ago
Quoted from Dmod:

COLORDMD PLANS FOR 2015
As we kick off 2015, we've received requests for more transparency about ongoing and planned projects.
...
We understand the desire for information, tentative as it may be, so we'll try to provide a little more visibility. In 2015, we will continue to expand our support for STERN PINBALL, INC. games, including the SAM platform. Internally, we are looking to add support for core titles: TZ, AC/DC, MET, ST, and TRON. Some of these projects are underway, and others will begin early this year as other projects wrap up. It's too early to predict release dates, but we are currently targeting release of our first SAM game in the Spring of this year.
...

...cause ya know... Tron is a "core" game now

Woot! A fully supported ColorDMD for Tron sounds very cool indeed!

#2897 4 years ago

I finally hit Portal tonite! Got lucky on cleaning up what modes I needed to finish with SoS and whattayaknow--the Portal light came on! I was so jazzed that I actually made that shot I had no idea of what to do next, but I did get several extra balls so I must have hit something I was supposed to. Anyone have any scoring tips in case I totally luck out and manage to get to Portal again?
