OK, so it was a week ago Tron came home. But it was lonely. So T3 came home today!

It's in pieces, had to take the backbox off to get it inside, but I still need to get it upstairs...so that's for another day.

It could use a really good cleaning....
Any suggestions on how to clean the metal ramps?

Terry,
Just curious, why would you want to keep 2 of the same title?
Are they at different locations?

Very underrated game! You will love it, I do...

I'm in the process of shopping mine out. Bout to try that mothers metal polish on them. I'll let you know how it works. Was pretty easy to strip the board. Time consuming with all the ramps but I think it pretty well designed.

I also agree this is a great game. It's far better than T2. I honestly cant see how anyone could prefer T2 to T3 other than nostalgia, which should be irrelevant for rating a pin. Has great flow, tight shots, makes you pay for missing shots, stackable modes, loads of fun. Only downside is that it's a pretty easy game.

Congrats on the pickup, I've never played one but I love all the metal ramps and active backglass toy.

I agree. I played this at GAP and it was very fun. Very cool pin. I almost bought one that night.

Thanks all. The wife and I managed to get it up into my office and it's on tap to be reassembled tomorrow.

Looking forward to playing this one, and I think it will officially mean that my office is now more of a game room than an office with a pinball in it!

Very under appreciated pin by most collectors. I love this game and it along with your Tron are 2 of Sterns best!

T2 looks and sounds much better than T3. I can't stand the sound on T3 especially. I never could stomach playing it enough to figure out if there was a decent game underneath. I trust those that say it's good though.

The title says "T3 Home now" Not is T3 better then T2 or is the OP asking for an opinion here? NO, but you come on and say it sucks so -- F.O. Instead you should congratlated him for his find. Get your negative S**T outta here. Debbie downer......Nice find by the way "NJ" enjoy your new pin my friend!

Remove them and sand with 120 wet or dry.
Blue tape on the ramp flaps first.
Congrats on the score, great game!
