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."

Just got back from Disneyland over the weekend. Tron LE was there right after a spinning ride from "Ghost Galaxy" Space Mountain w/ intergalactic while drunk.
The Tron LE worked, but the identity disk didn't have a grip and was slow.
IJ had been taken away for service 9/19/13 and its return was N/A. The chrome on Tron LE showed a ton of fingerprints. It still shined, but some Jack Hole ripped the LE plaque off. It was nice to see a Tron LE in the wild that worked with a little age and wear. tron2.jpg tron1.jpg

Concentrate on the Hardbody. It was my "Bestie" for awhile. Keep the large left and right plastics loose b/c they tend to break easy.

Just finished the floors (sand/stain/varnish) and decided to stick these two together.
Man, the history of these two together just screams, "ARCADE!"

Space Shuttle vs. Tron

It was a tight fit, but the closet still has a functioning open and close door.


#2645 6 years ago

Yeah, I was pretty stoked on the shine. Going to keep TRON on the moving dolly and got some coasters for the pin.

Quoted from Saveleaningtower:

Hello tron experts - wanted a price opinion on my nib TRON LE and nos TRON LE play field.

"Therefore prepare thee to cut off the flesh. Shed thou no blood, nor cut thou less nor more, but just a pound of flesh. If thou takest more or less than a just pound, be it but so much as makes it light or heavy in the substance or the division of the twentieth part of one poor scruple—nay, if the scale do turn, but in the estimation of a hair, thou diest and all thy goods are confiscate." -Portia

"The Game has changed, Son of Flynn!"
Ever since I changed up to the Clear Plastic Disk, I do not own TRON LE, TRON LE owns me.
What a difference! Thank you CF and Germans. All the young programs in the house want Disk War Multi-Ball.

Dudes, I just realized how there was such a viral market for TRON. I spotted my badge the other night and I was going to make it a promo plastic key chain. I took a look at it and found a cool website for the events of TRON.

If you have trouble with the site then go here and check out the film.

First thing I noticed at explosion. Those Bar Stools upstairs are OUSTANDING!

#4483 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Dude, you were up there yesterday? My wife and I were running the bar, how did we not meet?

Yeah, barely got upstairs because of security. I told the guy at the bottom of the stairs about Tron and some other stuff... and access was granted. Your wife made a kick ass gin and tonic. I was super hung over from drinking shots of Malort the night before, so I was in no shape to communicate. GREAT TIME!

#4505 5 years ago

Pic for the shirt should be...
A Tron character playing Tron Pinball next to Lionman playing SOF(w/his head sliced off from an identity disk) . And then a large "Lamp" over the whole scene.
Wait... that might be too much

#4508 5 years ago
Quoted from Chosen_S:


Then maybe have a whole bunch of main characters from selective pinball machine, playing their own pinball title (Ringmaster from CV, Gunslinger from CC, Kevin from Predator, and so on...) all w/ sliced off heads from an identity disc, under a lamp. And the only one that hasn't lost his head would be a Tron character playing Tron.
I only propose this b/c I don't want to single out Lionman . That's one hefty thread.

Quoted from Kevlar:

but its a little too crazy I think

No such thing with TRON

#4904 4 years ago
Quoted from Kevlar:

I was all for speeding it up but you have to draw the line somewhere... Your game sounds like sex with a girl who just broke up with her boyfriend and wants revenge.
Get yourself some plastic protectors,"Time Now" and ride through that "strange."

#4935 4 years ago
Quoted from Kevlar:

Is anyone else with the clear disc having issues with the ball moving so fast,

Yes, but I'm taking preventive measures. To try and slow things down would be FUCT UP. Just in case "the strange" starts breaking things, I purchased a spare ramp from MARCO. Plastics can be protected and re-made, but ramps suck when broken. Also grabbed a bottle of El Dorado 12yr (never fails).

Had a few friends
over for a TRON party with SFII.
Had to get an adapter at the store.
Took care of the 2 prong adapter.
Right before I installed the "Clear Germans" from CF (thanks) I had to remove my "Gem Reverse Bump Mod." It got me into Gem way too easy.

But, did you serve Chili?

No Chili. Only cold beverage. Chili is too high of a step.

Anything with TRON is a good mix. Just keep it HOT.

Ok well I just changed my avatar but for posterity's sake it was Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Quoted from centerflank:

you modded that to allow the ground plug to fit

Thx. I made the sign of the cross before I hit the power switches. The de-sheathing of the end of the cord is a no bueno as well, but Tron needs to stay turned on.

Quoted from centerflank:

with your TRON outfit on.

Ha.. Not a Cosplay person. Only there for comic art and spotting the latest trends. TRON is always a solid icon with Users and Programs. "I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day..."

#5663 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

What's an ID disc going for these days?

They are there, but never checked on prices. Mine is a record with daft punk songs. Tons of exhibitors are making some sick custom sabers with crazy specs!

After a late night of Drinking and playing TRON, I decided to leave my house to get some milk for my cereal. Shit Got Real once I stepped off my porch to noticed this right across the street.
It was a sign from "The Grid". "Who does that" to their Mercedes and why was it outside my house? IMG_00004217_(resized).jpgIMG_00004218_(resized).jpg

#5775 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Wonder if the pinstriping lights up?

The Car was gone within the hour I was back from the corner store, so I didn't get to see it in the dark. I'll keep my baseball bat ready for some "You see what Happens Larry!?" tactics.

#5861 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

WTF???? You are unbelievable, you never had it so good when you were with me. Remember the romantic Horse buggy ride through the park I took you on? The endless nights we stayed up late and talked about each others feelings???? I feel betrayed.

Just a few words... It is better to be with the devil you know, then to be with the devil you don't know. I'm sure those things that CF did was only to keep you warm and wanted.

#5907 4 years ago! I just finished a few rounds of Tron and decided to check on pinside top 100. Tron at 25! "SHAME... SHAME..." That top 100 sucks BIG TIME!

#5922 4 years ago

Whoever brought Tron to PinaGoGo, THANK YOU. Wish the disk was functioning on Sunday, but thank you for its presence among all those other things that were set up in the room. IMG_00004299_(resized).jpg

STOKED! I thought these Flynn's signs no longer existed. What a "come-up" at PinaGoGo!
THANK YOU Borygard!

Nice Pop Bumbers on the playfield

#5927 4 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

When did the brick sticker start being put on?

At first I was eluded to the thought of the lit up Flynn's sign because there was already a Flynn's sign on the playfield plastic, but when I spotted the replacement plastic with Space Paranoids on it, I reconsidered.
Maybe the first set of Flynn's signs didn't come with brick or replacement plastic?

#5928 4 years ago

Space Paranoids kinda got me thinking.....

You have my endorsement to the club. Is the recognizer disk clear?

#6518 4 years ago
Quoted from zapp:

I wonder what it will be like

Make sure you have ramp protectors. I think only the LEs didn't have ramp protectors stocked, but I could be wrong. Go with the clear disk and never stop. Good choice in a pin. My Tron owns me.
