I think it looks pretty cool. I hope it plays well.

Visually, it's an improvement over any of the recent Stern titles save for Iron Man maybe. Also looks like gameplay may be a bit more interesting as well, I love games with upper flippers.

I wonder if they are saving more lighting for the LE?


3 years ago

Coasterguy saves the morning already!
Now if they could only get the light beam to look like WW!
THAT would be cool!
I retract my "Pop Tart" statement (for now!) and hope for a smooth flow-y experience!
Data discs crossed...

Man, and I was hoping for a BLUE display standard..!
Can we say "aftermarket"?

Can't go wrong with two Jeff Bridges on the back box. I think if I put that next to my IM, it will combine and form a Big Lebowski pin.

Thanks, coasterguy! That's a very slick looking game! Compared to TRS, it's a quantum leap in the art department. I'm beginning to regret the deal I made with my wife preventing me from buying any more pins this year until WOZ. Looks like I'm either going to have to sell one of my current machines, or send her to the spa for a week.

It is a shame they didn't include Sam's (shipping container) "Lair" and his Ducati where the TRON side target bank is...
At least put FLYNN'S (Arcade) storefront brick arch (with neon sign) above the front of the Disc target bank... Sheesh! Now I have to learn (AND get tooling) up on how to vacuum form plastics!
If you want something done right...
Maybe they will (at least) have "Marv" as an easter egg! MOOOOO...

Are those mini light cycle toys at the back?

Already done gweem!

"What's the occasion..?"
I can't just treat someone special out of the blue?
(Eyes start to narrow...)
"WHAT ARE YOU BUYING NOW!?!?!"
"IT BETTER NOT BE ANOTHER PINBALL MACHINE!!"
No, no, I just wanted to give you a "Spa Day", you seemed tired and run down.
"Well O.K... It is a very sweet; nice gesture (walks out of the room...)!"
Helloooo LE Pre-order!!!(starts typing shipping info)
Aaaannd... Scene!

Looks cool I will be pre ordering a LE. Can't wait to play it.

I spoke with Mike at GAP. He says please contact him soon for a TRON LE order. He wants to get them in as early as possible. He is on the road today and could not post. Thanks!

Are you for sure ordering one?

I wonder how that scoop will be implemented. I'm guessing there won't be tunnels under the playfield, but that would be cool if balls were diverted to the scoop that way.


3 years ago

SOOOOO want. What is the ETA?

Nice pics for us .. thanks coasterguy. I'm glad to hear you are feeling and getting better with that health issue. Also thanks NimblePin .. You see I got my "rocks" off on her back

Does anyone know if they used any EL wire at all on the playfield? I sure hope so, if not that is a real cop out by the design dept. The stuff is dirt cheap, cheaper than LED's and runs on the same voltage. I can see some pretty awesome mods in the future if it is not implemented already.

It does look nicer than many recent sterns, hope to see some really good upclose pics.
Howerver if anyone else noticed it is just the reverse playfield design of spiderman. WOW way to go design team. Give us something new already!


3 years ago

Here it is. I flipped the pis of spiderman to show what I mean,

Just switch the goblin targets to the other side and you have a tron machine. I'm not bashing it, because a Tron machine is a great Idea and will probably be one of Sterns best sellers. But come on, invest some time and money into giving us something we haven't seen before. Or rehashing old ideas.

all hail spidertron!

Awww... Come on erak, they at least have the ramps a little bit wider!!


3 years ago

It does look like they are recycling many parts more than Ron Jeremy's have been and just adding a new "playfield" ? I agree with erak. But then it will be a machine to have especially being the LE to compete with Jack's new company and WOZ.

YES I am. I have fallen again.

I can't blame you. The game seems like it will be really fun, and I absolutely LOVE the theme. If it wasn't for my wife, I probably already would have called Mike myself.

The playfield is actually modeled after the Tommy Prototype playfield. They moved the kick out hole on the Prototype Tommy from one side of the lower pop bumpers to the right.

Third upper Flipper is in the same place as Tommy and so are the shots from that flipper

They took out the 3 upper red pop bumpers and put in the spinning disc. The Tommy Protoype plays better than the production Tommy. Flow is better. Can't wait to get my TRON LE to put next to my Tommy Prototype

I just hope they don't throw another powerball in there on the LE version. Unless they can come up with a better way to incorporate it into the game, I think it's just lame.

I think it looks pretty cool. Cant wait to get some plays on it! Thanks for the pics.

Someone over at KLOV posted this. There are definitely some similarities between these two games as well:

Ok, it actually looks even closer to Funhouse. Just replace rudy with the Sandman target from spiderman. Change the ramps posiotion. IF it plays as good as either it will be a awesome pin.

Where is the EL Wire?

I thought I read somewhere the EL wire would be on the LE version. Not sure though. Stern's Facebook says Next week will know more about the LE version.


3 years ago

That ramp reminds me a lot of the ramp on TOTAN and that could be a very good thing. I like the look from what I can see it seems to mix in some old school dynamics with the lay out and adds a new twist.

The game looks like a step in the right direction,I will sure play it when the oppurtunity arises.
What's EL wire?

It's short for electroluminescent wire:

Check out this dude's STTNG modded out with a ton of it:

» YouTube video

As you can see, the technology is perfectly suited for the Tron theme.

And here's a TZ with some cool blue EL wire (photo courtesy of Joey @ Pinball Decals)

If you're in a real pinch, I'll give you two grand for your ToM!

It would be a major blunder not to include some EL on Tron. It's a lay-up. Or maybe they're purposefully not going to include any so as to appeal such an obvious mod to the collectors out there that love to tinker as much as they love to play.

How's about $4800 for an Avatar LE decked out!

I was thinking the same thing erak! As soon as I saw the flipper on the left I was like "Where's the Trapdoor?" I love going into a melee loop on FH- I mean TRON...
I guess I kind of model my Pinball style after Roger Sharpe (With much LESS spastic dancing). If the shot feels good- I keep repeating it! Even if it does not award any points, I will keep firing away...
ADD maybe???

That would be the only reason I could see for them not to include it. I agree with you that it is a no brainer to put plenty of el wire on Tron. I had never seen it before it looks pretty cool and would put the looks of the machine over the top.

TRON is now part of the Pinside archive. Thanks to Sealclubber for reminding me
TRON pinball. I'm just not sure about the title yet and the spelling. Is it TRON : Legacy? Or just TRON? Or is it Tron?


3 years ago

Well (Robin) if it is a GREAT pin- TRON
Good pin- TRN
O.K. pin- Tron
Meh pin- Trn

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

It is one of their best looking for ages but I am not convinced yet that there will be anything new in the gameplay that has not already been in the last few? Don't get me wrong as would love to play it, but would not buy it. The next 18 months are going to be great......JJ Pins, new Ritchie game as well!
