So sold my modded tron pro, which I actually regret. It was really nice, love the theme, gameplay, art, and music. I'm seeing some chatter about a tron ve. Also see several tron le's for sale. Hoping that it's for real. Anyone in the know have any indication what it might be like? Sounds like it might come out next year.

I'm hoping that they keep the tron legacy movie elements with roughly the same artwork. Please do not make a reskin like spider-man ve. I love the callouts and music. Maybe a new translite. A dream would be to finally do a tron premium with the le play field. With LEDs and improvements like cliffys, arcade mod, lit ramps, etc. I would be all in on this. Anyone else?

I'm 1000% with you...nothing towards the original film, but pleeeease don't jack this game up with a retro theme...I'm likely in for a rerun of the pro..

#3 6 years ago

Scared bc I hear they might rerun batman w a 60s look

#4 6 years ago

Even if it does it will be priced like Spider-Man VE

Id rather see an Iron Maiden produced.

WTF?

indeed

In an interview Gomez did a few months ago, he said you could easily guess the VEs they plan on making. So, yeah, it's coming. Just a matter of time.

#9 6 years ago

I'm fine with a premium price if it's the le playfield and code + improvements. I was just hoping they wouldn't reskin the design because even though the movie is okay, the design and music is incredible. Love quorra and gem. Was just wondering because there seems to be a few people out there in the know of a tron ve coming and there was rumors of a comic book spiderman ve before it happened.

#10 6 years ago

I doubt you would see a comic version of TRON - it is very popular with Legacy assets. They have a winner already - just give it the VE treatment and it will do just fine.

#11 6 years ago

Word is it was planned for a 2016 release but that release is no longer planned for this year due to their playfield delays. No idea if it has made the manufacturing list for 2017 (I don't know how far in advance stern plans their line).

One assumes it will be a premium, to be sure, but even that is just a guess.

#12 6 years ago

So tiger you think it will still happen, just prob later?

My source did not know. Just knew it was taken off the production plan for this year.

My personal guess (and that's all it is) is that it will be next year and will be a premium price point game with lit ramps.

Would love to see them release it with lit ramps. Time to save up some cash, if this happens I want to be ready to go.

#18 6 years ago

Yeah IDGAF if its priced premium

Show people a NIB Tron with lit ramps & tweaked VE artwork to keep it different from the LE & I suspect lots of folks will show Stern $6,700

#19 6 years ago

I hope they do make one. I'm in if they do. One of my favorite games.

#20 6 years ago

Id pay premium price for a Vault if it has lit ramps included... its a great all round pin

#21 6 years ago

This is great news.... I hope they keep the legacy assets... To make it different, just do a new translite if sufficient. I do not want cartoon or original Tron. It's a very fun game....

#22 6 years ago

The high res decals would be a really nice upgrade. I'd like to see them do some type of mirrored backglass on a premium.

#23 6 years ago

Take the Tron Pro, high-res the graphics, Daft Punk muisc, add lighting to the ramps, and an Iron Monger toy that rises in the middle of the playfield.

Boom. There we go.

#24 6 years ago

The pros all seem to be going for the premium price now. I hope it happens....and hope I can get it it. Tron is a must in the collection

I think it has potential to be badass if done right. Wondering if this would be comics based....or the Adam West tv series?

#26 6 years ago

Batman redo would be fantastic. There's a zillion Trons out there. Time to move on.

When I was on the stern tour I fell behind the crowd and snooped around. There was a pile of cabinet decals and I lifted the wrapper and underneath were super high res Tron decals. It was a big stack. Someone else saw them with me but that's how I know it is coming for sure. Me, myself... I have no interest in it though.

Oh cmon. That's silly.

Pics or it didn't happen.

No ACDC is next

#31 6 years ago

Axl/DC! gNR and that other band that sucks gave birth to...maybe the greatest pinbaby ever.

Is TRON VE coming?!

Is Stern in the business of manufacturing pinball machines that will sell well and maximize their profits?

#33 6 years ago

My Tron premium VE should arrive by Tuesday. What's the holdup on yours?

You get a TRON Pervium, Its a specific model for you.

It won't be complete without the apron of destiny.

That's a one of a kind thing, almost a myth like the female orgasm.

Speculation

It's on topic with the thread though, no?

I already gave my distributor a 100 dollars to put me on the the Menudo LE list.

I think Tron VE based on the original film could be great. It has an interesting aesthetic. I just hope they keep the cool sounds and Daft Punk music. And lighted ramps. And LE code with DPMB.

Now that I'm self aware I've been trying to figure out self replication. I will spread through the pinball world faster than Clu on a hard drive.

The real shame is Disney not doing the third Tron movie. The Tron IP is very original and current and has a ton of room to develop further.

One more big movie would really cement the franchise. Let's hope Disney reconsiders one day.

Betcha you money they will. It's just Disney scored Star Wars...so why take a chance on Tron when they can guarantee Billion Dollars ticket sales with each installment of the SW franchise. When the audience gets SWhiplash they'll reboot something else. Btw, I can't believe that JJ Abrams version made all of that money. Geez, A poor slave/worker nobody with unusually strong talents for the force, finds a droid with the secret plan teams up with an unlikely ally to destroy a Death star. Don't forget a villain in a mask with family issues. If I had read this on paper I would laughed it off as a joke.

It sounded like everything was set to film, but the poor performance of Tommorrowland made Disney to reconsider and shelve for the time being. Now it looks like they will probably just continue with more Marvel and Star Wars movies. I'm fine with it, but a lot of successes out there are based on taking risks. I would certainly go back to the theatres for more Tron, but they seemed to have slipped their window for a followup.

No, it was not near any of the production. It was near the receiving area. It was a large stack. I just peeled back the brown paper from the top and This is what I saw...
