OOOOOOH I hit Portal the other night, forgot to come and here and brag about it.

First time I hit Portal since I installed the clear spinning disc. Been getting SOS quite often now, every 2-3 games....

The Mrs. and I have been playing a ton of TRON (although its my only pin right now). We mix in random shots of Crown Royal and Captain Morgans during gameplay and often realize its 230am and we should think about going to bed soon.....

vvvvv I think we might dress up for MGC next year vvvvvv

There were 2 other times this past week had Light Cycle in SOS down to 2 shots and failed, no Portal for me.

Damn you LCM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#3553 4 years ago

Nice work Hensbrooker. How did you attach these?

#3554 4 years ago

OK, since Tron Leader has done some nice work, I'll post my insignificant tiny feat. I hit 7.5-something million following Gem yesterday. I have never hit Gem that many times in my life in one game. Had several good chances to get to Portal the last couple of days, bricked the shots I needed--not worthy like CF...

That is all.

#3555 4 years ago

Trophy was excited for me to get Portal but she said she lost her "powers" when I had the long ball times! LOL!

May I provide a nice tip what to do with those two original light cycles?? This is what I did to them in my LE :

You only got 5400 on that game! Man you got slaughtered. I guess your Jedi "powers" weren't working that day (joke)

Nice work Hensbrooker. How did you attach these?

This isn't for the heart-fainted -> you have to drill your apron + the cycles...

- First I glued the tyres with a drop of epoxy glue to fixate them (stop the turning)
- Than pre-drilled a hole into the tires, so the screw (they were previously attached with) will fit.
(You could also use the small posts which they are attached with originally but I wanted them to ride directly onto the apron).
- Measure out the newly drilled holes on the apron -> use a sharpy.
- Remove the apron.
- Drill the 4 holes and you can fix the lightcycles from the inside out.

It's a very nice addition, like original and does not interfere with gameplay at all!

#3561 4 years ago

Or, you could just go back in time to 4 months ago: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/official-tron-lovefest-thread-i-love-it-more-than-lamp/page/59#post-2172681

...and also illuminate them! =D

Just got my clearcoated NOS Tron LE playfield in the mail today. For the curious, here's a brief write-up.

Quoted from tomdotcom:

Do you have the Flynn sign mod? That looks to be the back panel for the FLYNN sign...
edit I see you do have that mod....so there's your answer...

yup! Mine fell off as well. Need to glue it back

#3564 4 years ago

Here is how my cycles are mounted, black bailing wire, no damage to the game...

much better than an indoor plant!

#3567 4 years ago

did your wife agree ?

Quoted from RipleYYY:

If not, she's wrong. That spot was obviously custom built to house a pin.

keep planted in shady locations, avoid direct sun.
known to attract females of the species.
requires daily care and feeding.
usually bares fruit year round.
plunge often for best results.
offer not valid in vermont.

You forgot "requires a prenup do to increasing value".

#3571 4 years ago

Already did.....man, you can certainly feel the "TRON envy" vibe around Pinside lately....they're going to have to compare it to something besides another pin to get the desired results....TRON rules!!!...denial is futile, and frankly, not very smart...

Very nice!!! Got my Chrome door installed, per your previous, killer pics.....enjoy!!! ( I know you didn't compare w a plant in its place...I had to be reading that wrong... )

Boooooo....

Where's my beer !!

#3576 4 years ago

awe, horse shit!

#3577 4 years ago

went to 6th st tonight. Saw 1 pin folded under the stairs in a bar.
Looks like pinside is readable now on phone, but think the karma stuff vanished.

What has the world come to ?!?!?

Happy Tron Friday

#3579 4 years ago

Wow...instead of a making a very cool film like next installment of Tron, Disney is gonna rehash The Jungle Book, Alice: Through the Looking Glass and Beauty and the Beast? I hope they all bomb--I won't be making a theater trip for any of them.

I thought Tron Legacy was just okay. I like the pin more than I like the movie really. Some great eye candy, but not a whole lot compelling, and after a while I got a little numb to the visuals. I would have liked to see them mix it up a little more, they got really stuck on black/blue/orange for the bulk of the film, and the original Tron has more going on than that.

Still, I own the Blu Ray, it's fun, and the pin alone made it all worth it. Not revisiting it again doesn't really bum me out though, I wouldn't have been excited about a third film, even if I probably would have ended up seeing it anyways.

#3582 4 years ago

I'm bummed, I really liked the movie , it was the inspiration for me buying the LE... Bluray and Pin

Do you guys prefer the chrome or black pop caps from Hooked? I have been thinking about picking some up.

#3584 4 years ago

I got the Chrome and they're great.

You guys have issues with the chrome rings moving around? I've thought about using some double-sided tape or something to hold them in place.

#3587 4 years ago
Quoted from DocRotCod:

No I don't have any issues with mine moving at all. But I did screw the screws down pretty tight.

#3588 4 years ago
Quoted from DocRotCod:

Yes, I used some double sided mounting tape to keep 'em in place. Same stuff I used to mount my Hallmark cycles, it's the best: amazon.com link »

Just a small bit behind the side opposite the screw keeps it in place perfectly.

Chrome looks awesome....only had the rings move once...TINY dab of gel super glue on opposing side...done...solid ever since

yup. 1 of them would slowly rotate. put a dab of glue under it and stays great now

Question I brought up to TrilogyBeer as we drank beers and played TRON yesterday.....

You meet up with Quorra and she has a raging case of herpes,,,,,, do you dive in?

Sometimes it's worth the risk.

#3592 4 years ago

Depends how clean your balls are

#3594 4 years ago

Of course, you guys are talking about Quorra, but this is still on topic, I think. My wife was flipping through one of those Facebook time wasters; this one was celebrity's real names.

Olivia Wilde = Olivia Jane Cockburn

No wonder she changed it.

Hmmmmm, one night with Quorra and herpes forever or no night with Quorra and herpes never..................herpes please!!!

#3597 4 years ago

I thought herpes was one of the Greek gods. How is this a bad thing?

Depends on the amount of beers I had drank ( also including shots of sorts).......more= definite YES, less= chances still hîgh..........

How much should an NOS 3D TRON Translite go for. I'm interested in getting one to hang on my wall.

Anyone know of any that have sold recently?

Thanks
