Yep, it's here. And it's official...
Bonus points if you post a pic of your Tron collection.
Who's got the discs of tron arcade? Is it an EDOT? Later down the road I'll either overpay for a used one or build another from scratch...
Both films on blu-ray only, though if I had it my way I'd be able to tick everything on that list
I got one of these Flynn Lives t-shirts from the movie viral campaign. I had to take a secret invite to the imax theater at 11am, we were shown the trailer first, then got a shirt. Was fun.
Also got an Encom employee badge with my photo on it from the same campaign (and stickers and pins). Couldn't believe how much money they spent on me, although in the end, I guess I bought a pinball machine because of it.
You forgot to add an option on Tron in MAME (discs of Tron, Tron, Tron Mahjong...). Ironic, I just watched Tron Legacy on my ipad flying home two nights ago. After 5 times watching it, it's not as bad of a movie as the first time I saw it and my impression. Tron LE captures it so perfectly. Just wish quotes in game more spread out. Watch the movie then play Tron pinball. Most of the quotes are from the first 10 minutes of the movie.
I'm a big Tron fan, just got done restoring an EDOT and I have a minty/fully restored Tron upright arcade game (the one in the pic is my old one, I just got the restored one about a month ago). I also have a TRON LE pinball machine.
Now that's a beauty. Thanks for sharing. I remember playing one in the arcades all those years ago.
My Tron upright is arcade-fresh. It's got graffiti, cigarette burns, fade, water damage, and general wear. But it works perfect, and actually looks so authentic that I'm struggling with doing a full restore. In the end I'll do it, probably with a new CNC-cut cabinet, then disassemble the old cab and use the one side as wall art.

That's it from memory. Will try to post pics when I'm back to the office where stash all my stuff.
Oh, I do have and use the Tron mouse on my PC at home. It SUCKS. My wife's OTHER Razer mouse SUCKS also. They both will just turn themselves off at random for no reason, stay dead for 30 sec to 5 minutes, then suddenly come back on. Let me tell you what an absolute JOY that is in the middle of a game.. they have no explanation, wouldn't warranty either mouse, and no driver or firmware updates ever fixed it.
Never. Buying. Another. Razer. Product. DONE.
Sadly, Frax is absolutely correct. The TRON mouse goes off once in a while and then comes back immediately. It hasn't been annoying enough to replace, but now that I know it's a common problem, I won't bother trying to swap it. The keyboard is alright, but I switched since to a Das Keyboard, which is amazing. Now, the TRON keyboard just adorns my shelf where all the other collectibles are.
Being a Razer fanboy i always liked the look of these.
Edit: just saw frax's comment. All i own is razer gear... at current count 8-9 i think. Never had any problems with them. Well once i did but they have excellent customer service and they sent me a free replacement.
Cant vouch for this mouse's reliability sadly, but my Naga is perfect and irreplaceable for me. If you find your self having problem w/ razer gear i strongly suggest you try the customer service. Always been good to me.
