This shi... again?

Proof or STFU.

#4 4 years ago

Very good insider info.

#5 4 years ago

Any idea of the timeframe of when we might expect it?

Quoted from Frax:

I fully expect all the Tron Pro owners to downplay this as much as possible.
Without looking it up, could I guess that Frax owns one ?

Within 12 months.

I've owned two. I don't need to downplay it, because you have no damn evidence other than your word of mouth, which is worth about as much as me wiping my butt, and handing you the sheet, and telling you it's a million dollars.

Why the f would I even care... I've got a modded out pro, it's already in my living room, for a SECOND time. Clearly, I considered the VE possibility and decided not to wait on it. The whole point was I regretted selling it in the first place. I'm not going to sell it again just to get a VE and redo 30 hours of modding work, when I have everything and more that a VE could have aside from a metal head and metallic decals. Hope if they DO the VE, they give you guys the metal decals, the ones on Iron Man are freakin' awesome.

Just tired of all the unsubstantiated BULLSH...you guys keep posting. I didn't pay 6k for my HUO pro, I got a fantastic price on it. It's the 'tards sitting on NIB that are unopened that will be crapping themselves if it comes..

Why don't you tell us how you really feel ?
So you don't care , right?

Wish It was LotR

I believe Tron is the most logical choice, I'm betting it's no more than the Tron pro with VE speaker back box head and white leds much like IM VE .

We agree on something.

You and me both.

At least then I'd have a reason to want to buy...probably not the means. Sold HUO LOTR to buy Tron NIB the first time. Just a another part of the comedy of errors in the circle-jerk that led to buying a second Tron, really.

#15 4 years ago

I am asking this seriously: I really like Iron Man as a theme but don't like or dislike Tron. I have not been able to play either of them and likely will not be able to for quite some time. So with all that in mind, assuming the OP is correct, which would be the better choice if you had to buy sight unseen?

#16 4 years ago

Both are awesome IMO, but Iron Man is definitely the bigger butt-kicker of the two, so if you have a low tolerance for BS drains, I would say get a Tron. Iron Man also uses the "old" Stern methodology of modes...same way as Avatar that if you don't actually fully complete the mode/multiball, the light goes out at the end of your ball and back to square one. Tron at least gives you a chance in Sea of Simulation to earn that solid light.

#17 4 years ago

Not this again (face palm)

This is like predicting the sun will go down tonight. It will happen eventually.

I also said that Kiss will happen this year. It will.

....and the spike system instead of SAM.

#22 4 years ago
Quoted from DCFAN:

And high resolution decals. I wonder if it will have a new translight.

#23 4 years ago

why would they need a VE? they can just crank out another run of Pros. They can make unlimited amounts. License is still active.

#24 4 years ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Oh Tiger, you got sucked into this too? Ok, I'll bite.

Gonna have lit ramps and all modes. LE buyers are gonna shit a brick cuz Stern is like the Honey Badger...

#25 4 years ago

I 100% guarantee it will have a "made in the USA" sticker on it if it's made.

#26 4 years ago
Quoted from Nevus:

And glass. It'll have glass. And flipper buttons. And possibly some switches, unless the BOM gets too high at a measly giveaway price of $6500, then some assembly required. And the mods available @ the Stern store will be lanes guides, switches and wiring.

Seems like you said KISS was next and two days later WWE was announced...

#28 4 years ago

Ooooh this is interesting!!!

If it's on a SPIKE system then you can't switch the songs!

I thought about that the other day With Walking Dead. If you want the real voices via pinball browser you'd have to get the SAM Walking Dead.

The walking dead is on Spike system now? Waahh??

#30 4 years ago

I just hope it comes with a 3-D translite. I'd really like to pick one up at a reasonable price.

#31 4 years ago

It will be nice to see $4600 NIB Trons shipped.

My buddy is gonna get one for sure if they do another run.

#32 4 years ago

I will get one if it includes lit ramps.

Let me guess: this was Underlord's "insider" named "Guy"?!

Here we go again

Quoted from mcluvin:

That won't happen. Might be a new translight though, that would be cool too. Would make it four official translights.

#36 4 years ago

Makes perfect sense. Tron and LOTR are the only two Stern games now where mint, stock HUO ones go for more than NIB (SM and TSPP are close). IM used to be a third one, but Stern fixed that with IMVE.

#37 4 years ago

I totally believe you... seems like you always have pretty good skinfo.

the way I look at it the more trons out there in the wild and in collectors hands the better

Tron

Now to me Tron and IM are both great but Tron is slightly better, maybe due to deeper rules and better sound/music but I love both but Tron is the better game to me. Just love Tron code, IM is great as well nice short code, almost feels like IM could use some more code, but it's still OK just not brilliant.

I like IM as is, meaning I don't need many mods, but Tron almost feels like you HAVE to add ELI ramp lights, Arcade and LED kit (maybe also 3d translight) so with Tron figure to spend another $700 to $1200 in mods.

IM VE is simple, and to me fine just out of the box however I did add lighted War Machine figure and will add color decals to side.

Tron's not really deeper, it just feels that way because it saves progress for the most part AND gives you a second shot in Sea. It's only got 3 main multiballs, IM has 3. Finishing one of Tron's modes, Flynn, literally consists of shooting one lit arrow anytime during the game? Recognizer is only opening the bank (3 shots right up the center), which you HAVE to do to start Disc multiball, etc....

Tron has fared as well as it has because of integration and the ridiculous level and quality of the mods. It's not any deeper than any other fast/flow pin that I can think of offhand. Tron, Avatar, IM...all about the same depth-wise IMO. Tron might be more "wide" than Iron Man...not sure how much you can do all at the same time on IM, but on Tron, you can do Clu, Zuse, Quorra, Lightcycle, Gem, Tron, Recognizer, and Flynn all at the same time...if you're really lucky and start Clu with stacked LC/Quorra.

Stern_SAM-SPIKE_SYSTEM.jpg

I couldn't find a better picture, but I know I have seen one in higher resolution.

It's not that Tron VE won't be worth it! I just spent hours in audacity editing songs from the movie soundtrack for my Tron, and it feels weird playing one that doesn't have them now.

NIBs are going up though. The cheapest I could get a NIB Pro for a couple weeks ago was $4800 and that was shipped to a depot.

If anyone knows anybody cheaper let me know!

#41 4 years ago

Same shit different thread.

#42 4 years ago

Here's hoping! Current prices are lunacy. And where there's money to be made, eh Stern?

#43 4 years ago

The pros do come up for sale, but they get snapped up pretty damn quick. So the demand is certainly there. I would pick up a NIB if they release them at a good price.

#44 4 years ago
Quoted from stretch2:

LOL. Remind me, what did you 100% confirm like 3 days before WWE was announced, KISS?

This stuff is really getting lame.

#45 4 years ago

I hope they make it...You guys don't know what you're missing. I also doubt it will come with any upgrades other than LEDs, so you better stock up on Eli's ramp kits now. "Libations for everybody"!

#46 4 years ago

i'm out if it doesn't come with coinmechs !!
oh wait... have an LE

never mind...

so what you are saying is that stretch doesn't know??

#50 4 years ago

Meh VE Come on stretch you know you want a LE. You will always be wondering...

Is Eli's mod as good?

Will you miss not having Daft Punk multiball? It's a lot better multiball then most give it credit. Regardless good luck with your wait or whatever.
