anyone wanna get on the tron train?? chu chu


#126 7 years ago

hahaha..... you took that picture?? nice man. whats the story behind the edot train pic?

the most i've ever had was 2 edots in the garage. i was sellin one and keepin' the other (upgradin')

Quoted from Wickedbass:

Nice pic, i remember taking it

#129 7 years ago

yeah.... nOthing beats the sounds in discs of tron. esp when sark is just laughing at you and mocking you when he derezzes you. hope you find a speech board!

Quoted from hAbO:

If anyone has a sound board from an EDOT I'd give my left nut for it. I want my upright to talk It's not trivial to connect it but it can be done.
PS If you love lamp then you might like this in December
» YouTube video

#132 7 years ago

so it sounds like a lot of us pinsiders are edot/dot owners?? post some pics guys!

Quoted from caker137:

The squawk and talk board comes up on eBay regularly. I see 2 available right now. You might have to buy as-is though.
BTW - my old guide to doing this is up here:
Pm if you have any questions

#158 7 years ago

yeah... the guy's name is prOk (on klov, he might be on pinside too) from florida. real nice guy, makes alot of cool products for arcades/pinballs. i tried to get him to make more of these ramp plastics (or see if he had any extras) but he only made like a few sets of these

he also made some cool plastic protectors before pinbits was selling theirs (uv reactive).

i am also not a big fan of the ZEN text on the pinbits plastics.

here's an older pic i took with prOk's plastics......

Does anyone know where to find the prototype ramp plastics shown in the following video? I would love to get a set of them. I have only seen them here though so maybe it's a long shot.

// Error: Image 115390 not found // // Error: Image 115391 not found //

#161 7 years ago

yeah, i should probably switch out my left side protectors. they are supposed to be more of a yellow/orange color.... mine look more of a light green under the black light.

Quoted from Keebler:

I see your point with that, didn't think about that before. I am definitely going for an orange side / blue side theme, so I might see if I can get one in blue.

#175 7 years ago

darnit ..... I totally missed these.... hoping brain makes some more (fingers crossed).

Quoted from Keebler:

Quick update on the prototype plastics...
I was able to contact prOk (Brian) from the info provided by ENDOFLINE and hAbO, thanks a ton guys Turns out he was able to find the laser files he was going to use for the production version of these, that he never actually made I guess. Anyways, he cut some sets of them today and put them on his website. I believe I just bought the last set, but he might be able to make more if any one is interested. Brian is a super nice guy btw.

#178 7 years ago

no worries bro...... just got home from my extended cax/family trip, so haven't had anytime for pinside.

Quoted from Keebler:

Sorry man, I should have PM'd you

#180 7 years ago

thanks bro! appreciate the offer. hopefully he will make more, esp with all the tron pros/le's out there. I think if more peeps knew about these, there would def be a lot of interest in them. post up a pic of your tron pin

Quoted from Keebler:

If Brian doesn't make any more, I will send you the extra set I picked up as a backup (in case he never made them again). Afterall, you helped me track them down in the first place.

#182 7 years ago

yeah, those are sweet. his recognizer/light cycle toppers are also equally awesome.

#186 7 years ago

nice dude... i'm digging the blue t-molding.

Quoted from Keebler:

I posted a few above, and the following one in some other threads... but I want to finish it before I take overall pictures of it. I'm still waiting on my blue side mirrors, blue DMD and I need to get my parts in for powder coating.

#216 7 years ago

nice dude..... edot/dot parts are not cheap these days. did you pick up one of the repro cpo's from thisoldgame?

Quoted from retired_user_101:

i wonder if its possible to hook this little puppy i picked-up to my tron pin & use it to play ?

#220 7 years ago

the ramp plastics look great. are they blocking the C L U letters at all ??

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

Just added the ramp plastics. I like them.

#233 7 years ago

i really like the BLUE start button that pbl is now selling. looks waaaay better than the ol' standard green start button.

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

I need some more mod ideas. Anybody have any mods that are not usually seen? No dolls though.
Don't like the look of little dolls sprinkled around the play field. Here is my game as it stands today. I'll probably do the light cycles someday.

#280 7 years ago

i think i'm more of a "encom on the coin door" kinda guy. that's alot of encom right thar!

oh..... good idea on those star posts. very kewl.

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

Good idea

#329 7 years ago

maybe send rich a email on his website or on klov..... I bet he's got a couple of the floor discs left. I bought the floor disc for mine.... wow what a difference!!

Quoted from retired_user_101:

yup. i should receive it soon
i need the floor disc and a few other art pieces that are no longer in his stock.

#334 7 years ago

bummer man.... just keep tryin'. i know he was still recovering from cax a few weeks back .....

TRON weekday bumpage. Bruce approves of this thread

i wish... he's out


#348 7 years ago

just wanted to say "muchas gracias" to centerflank for hooking me up with his set of ramp protectors! super fast shipping, got them installed over the weekend and lovin them. thanks again brother.

Quoted from centerflank:

You can easily tell if they are lit or not, so doesnt really block them.
I installed mine and dont like how the yellow looks with my orange LED's, If anyone wants them $10shipped to lower 48, pm me... #SOLD#

#358 7 years ago

thanks dude.... i'm kinda on the fence with the ramp deals... but for now they are staying!

minor adjustments you say??

Quoted from Keebler:

Right on, I'm glad you got a set I'm getting some minor adjustments made to mine to make them right for my machine, but overall I love them.

that's cool the le is still there @ starcade..... did you notice that some JACKASS removed the LE serial # tag/plate/badge thingy??

Quoted from retired_user_101:

spotted this illusive tron pin out in the wild today in the disneyland arcade next to the space mountain exit. (for some reason, i appear to have been standing sideways during the photo)

#448 7 years ago

wow..... that was quick. the new plastics are lookin good mang!

lookin forward to see'in that bad boy all dialed in with the new powdercoating.

Quoted from Keebler:

I got my modified yellow plastic today, it matches perfectly. Now if only I could play the game, I still have 2 1/2 weeks before my armor comes back

#483 7 years ago

can somebody school me on these navi balls?? these balls make the game easier/harder/more random??

Quoted from bangerjay:

Latest addition to white Tron... Navi balls

#485 7 years ago

ahhh... got it, thanks man..... tron is hard enough for me already.... i'll stick with my silver jets

Quoted from centerflank:

Much harder, they are lighter than the steel balls and super fast. The arent affected by magnets so great for TRON

#495 7 years ago

ok..... i'll play.... here's some pics of my tron corner

#596 7 years ago

I love TRON CAKE more than lamp... this was my son's b-day cake a few years back

442.JPG 489.JPG

#605 7 years ago

hahaa...... the tron party was for his 3rd b-day party so "no" on the quorra deal. hehe... we did have a pinata, cake, and all you could drink juice boxes

you know..... my big 40th is coming up next month. you got me thinkin about the whole quorra dancey deal! maybe time to hit the local club!

Quoted from centerflank:

You didnt hire him a stripper in a Quorra outfit? Pffft....gotta go the extra mile!

#607 7 years ago

ohh boy.... she would love it... not!

Quoted from centerflank:

Well thats a huge deal! Im sure the wife would be fine with you having a private Quorra showing at your house for just the 3 of you if you catch my drift?

#621 7 years ago

nice tokens man.... and don't forget about these

showin` the luv...
i'm going to mod these, by building a tron pin around them.


#660 7 years ago

"best thread ever" bumps....


#685 7 years ago

soooooo.... get all the mods done first, then install blades last. oh wait.... the mods never end on this pin

good idea on that poster board keebs. i need to get me some mirror blades asap!

Quoted from Keebler:

I wasn't able to buff out the scratches on mine very well, the best thing to do is just prevent them as much as possible. I will definitely take more care with the next set I get.

unfortunately TRON LE's did not come with shakers.

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

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??

#768 7 years ago


Quoted from centerflank:

Finally they have arrived!!!

#795 7 years ago

you had me at custom skull painted legs dude, centaur is a great pin!

mos def hit the brakes on the tron encom mods for at least a few weeks.

nice dude.... spidey is a amazing pin.

pics or it didn't happen

Quoted from centerflank:

I wired my cycles to be on all the time right into the power supply below the right flip button, but I also have a pig so easy to swap around.
Did I mention a spidey fell into my lap? Just had to be patient and stopped looking for one

#881 7 years ago

wow.... looks like you got alot of work done on the spidey over the weekend. wish i could say the same for meeself, spent most of my time playing GTA5

congrats on the new pin!

Quoted from centerflank:

Hard to say at this point, Lamp has really given me some great times, spidey is brand new and hasnt proven itself, but as we can see it has great potential.

Quoted from ChadH:

Tron pajamas! Oh man, if I would have known back then!!!

#976 7 years ago

those kicks are RARE.... anyone here own a pair?

Quoted from Captive_Ball:

Don't forget the matching jacket and kicks!

#1012 7 years ago

i just wanted to say "sorry" to my tron because i haven't been playing her much lately......

the reason why is that i got a new pin over the weekend in a trade deal. that new pin is a WH20! really lovin the whitewater so far. cabinet has a little wear, but the pf is in nice condition, some of the ramps were replaced too, white rubbers installed, topper is original. it truly is a awesome pin!

#1017 7 years ago

OHHH..... me likee ramps..... esp the search for animal chin ramp

#1018 7 years ago

thanks for the props brother.... just wish I had mo' room. can only jam so many cades and pins in a 2 car garage. this wh2o is still nowhere as clean as that minty fresh spidey that was posted on here recently

Quoted from Keebler:

Nice man, White Water is a great game! That's a sweet lineup you have

#1038 7 years ago

the gem shot isnt too bad on the pro.... but HOT DAMN its a bitch of a shot on the le's.

Quoted from centerflank:

Oh Im pretty sure he did. Sorry, I have no pics of the portaling.

#1141 7 years ago

Oh Im pretty sure he did. Sorry, I have no pics of the portaling.

for some reason I thought you would have the uber rare ENCOM rails and hinges

Quoted from centerflank:

EDIT----I DO NOT have extra rails, ONLY 1 extra set of hinges.
I also received my rails/hinges with EL paper yesterday from Zdoor. I already have a set of hinges that are painted ready to go on, does anyone want to buy these raw hinges? I could get them professionally automotive painted as well when my rails get finish idea on price but maybe 40 raw-80painted?

#1329 6 years ago

congrats brett! and welcome to the edot club make sure you buy as many possible repro parts/artwork from rich @ thisoldgame (im guessing you already have?) not sure if he's making anymore, but the replacement plexi (above the cpo) is frigin awesome. the target decal is pretty sweet too. im a softie for anything that glows.

Quoted from retired_user_101:

my new tron toy. just a little exciting. been working years to collect parts to build one, then this emerged !!…

im loving the road trips pics there buckman!

all that snow reminds of something from the 80's called TRON ON ICE


Quoted from Buckman:

Now that looks like one fine machine you've got there! Walked downstairs this morning and couldn't believe that it wasn't there, but luckily for me there's this cool looking machine I picked up from kamidave to take it's place
Had an awesome time driving up to meet you guys yesterday and drop off the machine, and glad to hear you like the machine. I got lucky with driving yesterday and the Coquihalla Highway wasn't too bad (just a few snowy sections). Always fun doing a pinball road trip!

Quoted from retired_user_101:

holy cow… i guess the Tron piece was a segment of the bigger 'magic kindom on ice' show?
guess i'll be looking for that entire piece now. that's a must see

#1367 6 years ago

wow.... so it sounds like the super bands are a win win? need to buy a few sets of these for my pins. you guys using the blues on tron?

Quoted from Erik:

True stuff! Those things sort of feel like cheating. Thanks Super Bands!

#1375 6 years ago

heh hooked..... im liking the direction you are going with these tron discs. what do you think about possibly taking OUT the word tron in the middle of the discs? i was just thinking it might look cleaner if it was just the design of the disc. just thinking there might be enough of the words "tron" on the backglass, sideart, pf,etc. all in all lookin good mang.

Quoted from HOOKED:

What do you think of these - if you have not seen them yet.
Seems every owner has posted here so though as an owner I would share.
Lit chrome version (less chrome screw in my haste to post).
This is mounted on a pop body with my custom led pad under the mod.
I agree its a bit over powering in pics but really cool in person.

WORD TO THE WISE.... play tron drunk + higher scores = portal mode completion

Quoted from docfenderson:

I've been trying to decide if it's better to play drunk, caffeinated or both… after some not-so-scientific tests that seemed to indicate a somewhat improved reaction time after consuming a double espresso, I went out for a few cocktails, came home pretty well drunk and, much to my astonishment, racked up a 94M point first ball.
Apparently, for me at least, drunk is the way to go!
So, Tron enthusiasts… what's your best first ball score and what, if any, neuro-enhancing substances were you using when you got it?

Quoted from Erik:

Definitely a sub. After that I'd go with Eli's fiber optic ramps. I would skip all the other stuff til those two are done
Edit: btw your x-men is awesome looking. good luck with the sale

heh erik.... i've heard some good things about adding a sub to the mix. what kind have you bought or like the best?? might have to add one to my tron too

#1823 6 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

I've ran a no name 6.5" sub and a super cheap 10" sony and they were equally great. I don't think you need to dump much money into pin subs. I keep my pins pretty quiet which makes the bass almost non existent but powered subs save the day! My favorite is when you start LCMB and the jumping bike makes the deep WHOOOOM sound that makes the floor vibrate. Also that usually signals I will be draining in the next 15 seconds

tanx for the info! anyone have a fav brand/model of sub?

i'm hoping to find one of these on the cheap on my daily thrift store runs

#1869 6 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

So how does the TRON logo work on the Hooked caps? It's a decal? I like the caps, but honestly I don't like the logo, I don't want to see the text 3 times, would have rather it was an abstract design that was more identity disc like. If you leave off the decal I assume it's just a big colored center.

i totally agree with this..... i think it says TRON on this pin enough. we get it, its tron legacy

maybe just a plain black sticker in the middle of the disc pop bumpers would look great!

#1900 6 years ago

it's funny how many pinsiders have turned there trons into one big BLUE love fest. blue dmds, blue side rails, blue legs, blue led bulbs, blue speaker grill lights, and on and on and on.... the blue just seems a bit excessive to me (imho).

lookin' at sam and quorra all i see is WHITE

#1913 6 years ago

#2134 6 years ago

yeah... a deeper game would mos def be a great choice next to tron.

how about another stern game with a deep ruleset like LOTR??

Quoted from Erik:

I agree with Rob's assessment of the rule depth, but I would still go BSD from those, all else equal.
Anyways SNAP OUTTA IT, you got a Tron coming, focus on the prize!

#2138 6 years ago

yeah bro.... that TZ looks dark as hell over in the corner. poor TZ.

let's get some new pics stat

Quoted from centerflank:

Oh, that reminds me from that pic I took a few weeks ago, I got a Comet LED brighten up my TZ package in the mail today from OldPinGuy so I threw them all in to see the difference. TZ is just a horribly lit game especially next to an ACDC or StarTrek. Ill edit in the new pic in a minute....

#2357 6 years ago

that is a beautiful painting right there.... I always have a soft spot for roller girl


Quoted from centerflank:

I must say, Boogie Nights is probably one my fav all time movies. Its comedy just absolutely hits home with me. This would be an outstanding adult themed pinball.

I was watching some random videos of the old show STARCADE and came across this episode where the grand prize was a brand new TRON arcade! I remember watching this show when I was a kid on wgn.

I won't spoil what happened..... but check it out

#2370 6 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Wonder if steve still has that metal detector or if he hawked it for smack.

I would have kept it for sure! steve looks to be a true nerdling, I bet the dude still has it.

ohh.... true story.... one of the guys over on klov (damon) was on this show back in the 80's. it was a "family" episode of starcade and he was competing with his mom against another family. its classic for sure! the grand prize was a juno first arcade. did damon win the game?? check it out.

when tron legacy was released @ the theaters there was a ton of cool tron swag over @ downtown disney. really miss that stuff, wish i had bought more

Quoted from Rom:

Can I join the club?
Opened in january 2014 and modded. I'd like to add more but I take a break now and play a bit.
This is already my second Tron pro. I missed it so much, I had to find another NIB and do the modding all over again. But this time with Eli's color changing ramp lighting. Just wonderful!

I agree.... it already says TRON enough all over the cabinet. not needed.

Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

I'd be down for those Hooked caps if they just looked like identity discs and didn't say TRON. Maybe a rev. 2?

#2572 6 years ago

what a deal... i'll be shipping mine over next week

Quoted from labnip:

for a nominal $20.00 fee I will remove the 'Tron' stickers from folks hooked-pop-caps where they are already installed. Shipping of me in lower 48, ~$2,000.00
This is a deal at a total service+shipping of $2,020.00
But really... it's priceless for that new brighter and less tronny look

#2630 6 years ago

this video pinball would also be cool.....


this virtual pinball ........ not so much


#2650 6 years ago

my guess would be $600 -1k (dep on location and condition)

once TR3N comes out it could be worth $1,500 - $2,000

Quoted from Erik:

I think with play it will start to lose some grip
So what's a fair price on a restored Tron arcade game?

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).

Quoted from Aurich:

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 ...

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!

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