    Quoted from bjorg:

    I bought that machine. It's my first pin and the only reason I got it is because it's a TRON LE and I'm a pretty avid TRON collector that missed out when they first came out.

    Now, before you blast me for how stupid I am, I did do some research for NIB TRON LEs and they all seem to be going for about $10K. This unit has supposedly just a few hundred plays, plus some mods I would have done anyway.

    That said, now that I have discovered Pinside, I feel I got into this without the benefit of all the knowledge that would have been available. Hindsight is 20/20 they say. Hopefully the machine is in a condition as good as the seller described it (it should arrive this week). You'll probably see me posting questions about mods and other tweaks that can be done. I hope you'll extend me the courtesy of your knowledge and don't hold my pin n00biness against me. Thanks!

    Pics or it didn't happen.

    Quoted from dgpinball:

    We must be in the midst of some kind of mania, no way is any Stern game worth that kind of coin.
    Whatever it is about Tron that makes sane people go nuts, I just don't get, it's an average game at best, even all pimped out, IMO.

    I agree, I bought a Tron LE and just didn't like it that much. When I saw they were selling for $8,500 I gladly took my $3k profit and let her go. I don't understand those comparisons to it being as good as MM. Not even close in my book. I have so much fun playing MM that I forced myself to play the day after knee surgery. Swollen leg and all I put up my third highest MM score on my pin and loved every minute of it. Must have been the perscription drugs making me play better.
