I think Stretch sold his LE.

#52 4 years ago

At least the code will be solid

#53 4 years ago
Quoted from stretch2:

It will be here.

Is this why you sold your LE? We all know VE will come eventually, so it's not news. But how nice of you to share this info on here after you sold your LE a few days ago. I bet you wouldn't post this if you still have it now, would you?

#54 4 years ago

Everyone deep down knows it's coming...just like LOTRVE. It's an easy sell and moneymaker.

Well I'm sure that he shared his inside information with the seller before making the deal.

I heard LOTRVE is next. Already on the list!

#58 4 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

LOL. Remind me, what did you 100% confirm like 3 days before WWE was announced, KISS?
This stuff is really getting lame.

It will happen this year.Stern always like to throw a swerve.Don't you know that by now ?

#59 4 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

I just found out about the Tron VE a couple days ago.I sold the LE to raise funds for personal reasons.

If true that's pretty shady...but the VE won't be the LE so, eh who cares?

#61 4 years ago
Quoted from CaptainNeo:

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

VE is Pro...just a Pro who's license has been renewed & in the new cabinets style w/ LEDs since Stern's done with the old cabs and incandescents.

#62 4 years ago
Quoted from Pimp77:

If true that's pretty shady...but the VE won't be the LE so, eh who cares?

As previously stated , I was not made aware of the Tron VE until a couple days ago.I sold the LE about a week before.

#63 4 years ago

Can't get excited about this. Just shelled out my last available funds for an Iron Man VE. Got to cool my heals on purchases.

#64 4 years ago

See OP doesn't work for stern it's a guy he knows, him and gary..got..it..on!

the million dollar question is lighted ramps or not. (of course, there are mods for that)

Quoted from cscmtp:

There will not be any lighted ramps and there is no mod, Not if its the new system.....

#67 4 years ago

If Stern makes a TronVE then
I will buy one.

I just hope, and I think they are kind of getting it, that someone at Stern says "Wow look at all these cool mods for the Tron Pro. It almost makes it an LE. We should make those mods and sell them so that a Pro owner, if they choose to someday spend that extra money, can enjoy most of the LE experience with their Pro. We could probably even offer software add-ons like Daft Punk for $50 and Pro owners would buy it".

#69 4 years ago

Why can't they just do a premium? After playing the LE with its added features and Daft Punk multiball, I think it would be a better seller for Stern.

#70 4 years ago

Here is where the rumor came from...

Quoted from musketd:

Yep TRON VE is coming guys just a matter of when

Until it actually happens it's nothing more than speculation.

PS. No lighted ramps or other LE features, just LED's and new back box.

#71 4 years ago

Make a base model and a deluxe model, then make it so I can turn my base model into that deluxe model at an added cost. It's pretty crazy they aren't exploiting software add-ons more. Get the code mature, then figure out add-ons. You want real voices instead of the redneck? Fine, that will be $50. I'd pay $50 extra all day long to have Darrel Waltrip and Dale Jarrett doing call outs on Nascar vs the redneck.

#72 4 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

i'm out if it doesn't come with coinmechs !!
oh wait... have an LE
never mind...

What if it was a VE Premium! That would be interesting

#73 4 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

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

Robbie looking for another spanking?

Wait. That sounded gay.

Go get your own insider Rob.

#74 4 years ago

Lotr ve or Tron ve............
At least it will ship with complete code.

#75 4 years ago

I hope to god LOTR VE comes first, I REALLY want one.

#76 4 years ago

If stern we sort they would offer the new TRON, and Lotr with RGB leds, nd some other goodies you just can't get with the old ones. Then we would all want the new and improved ones....

#77 4 years ago
Quoted from ChrisHibler:

If Stern makes a TronVE then
I will buy one

Me too, especially if it's a premium. I'm not in on the WWE pin and I already have a LOTR, so a Tron with complete code NIB would be very appealing. I think I'd have to tell my wife I won it in a raffle or something.

#78 4 years ago
Quoted from thedarkknight77:

Yeeeeeeeurrrrgh.

Wouldn't that be some jacked up sh...

No switch and no lamp matrix = no Eli interface. I don't think the time would be put in at this point to completely re-work it for Spike. I really hope if they do a Tron VE, it's NOT on Spike for that reason. I would love to see Eli make some more money if he's still getting a cut from Pinbits. I think they're fantastic, personally.

#79 4 years ago

Stern would cash in if they offered it with the lit ramps. Crazy if they don't.

#80 4 years ago

How can a 3 year old game be called a Vault Edition? Thats goofy.

I hadn't considered this. That would hurt sales badly.

#82 4 years ago

And possibly the new system?

Not being able to put Eli's mod on Tron Vault would be a deal breaker in my opinion..

Yah they wouldn't sell too many units if that's the case. They may as well keep it in the vault then.

#85 4 years ago

Not being able to have lighted ramps would be a bad deal, but i'm almost certainly a buyer if they run it.

#86 4 years ago

Someone take a guess on when Stern will announce the next VE.

May 5, 2015

Edit: How does a date get a thumbs down??? Just childish.

Same as IM...the ONLY VE in existence.

#90 4 years ago

If they do this I'm most likely in for my first NIB since LOTR in 2003!

#91 4 years ago

Because you didn't say "Cinco de Mayo".

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Edit: How does a date get a thumbs down??? Just childish.

Not sure, need to ask Certain thumbs down specialists. They've both used the thumbs down, oh, I meant the 'disagree' button since the RGP days. One I can understand, as he's trying to defend his Tron LE selling point, The other? He's just being 'disagreeable.'

Me? I thumbs down VERY rarely. I prefer the direct confrontation, others like to lurk and poke.

Since neither has a sense of humor that anyone is aware of, let's see if they take anything in stride, or disagree with my disagreeing.

It's only internet jibba jabba. Stern will follow the money. This they've proven over and over. VE models will happen, and when they do, makes sense it will be on the cheaper Spike platform.

#93 4 years ago

The reason IMVE was made is because of the failed home version of IM that, unlike other Stern home games, had a near identical version of the playfield as the commercial machine.
Stern had playfields remaining (probably whole machines left too) and decided a few tweaks could give them another run of IM Pro's easy.

Not the case with Tron
Definitely not the case with LOTR.

Maybe a VE happens, but with the pin titles coming out in 2015, I sincerely doubt another VE is coming soon.

#94 4 years ago

If a Tron VE does come and it is on the spike system will the Eli ramp mod work or can it be adjusted to work with the new system. Would he even bother trying to Build a new ramp mod for the new system if it doesnt work with it. . Just curious.

It would not work. At the LEAST it would need a completely different connector setup, and more likley, it would need a total re-write of the lamp status detection code since there is no "lamp matrix" to read under the Spike system...they're using a serial bus.

Is it a hot tip from the same sources that said the next Stern was Kiss, or The Muppets, or Jaws?

#97 4 years ago

Just bought a Tron Pro NIB. I hope Tron VE becomes reality so every person who wants one has one.

Been looking around a long time.

I hope they also come out with a new translite so I can expose all 4 of them.

Keep on playing pinball is awesome

Nope.

Don't ever recall 'muppets' ever being a hot tip though...

They already did 2 years ago. 200 were produced.

Disney TRON Legacy (4th VEdition) / IPD No. 6019 / 2013 / 4 Players
Manufacturer:Stern Pinball, Incorporated, of Chicago, Illinois,
USA (1999-now) [Trade Name: SternMPU:Stern S.A.M. Board SystemType:Solid State Electronic (SS) Production: 200 units   (approximateSerial Number Database:View at The Internet Pinball Serial Number Database (IPSND.net)Theme:Licensed Theme - Science FictionNotable Features:This is a fourth production run of Stern's 2011 'Disney TRON Legacy' that completed in the first quarter of 2013. The most obvious difference from the previous runs is that the translite features two female characters from the movie, named Gem and Quorra. This is the so-called "Quorra/Gem translite". The cabinet art uses decals (not screened art).

This fourth run game also shipped with an additional transliteite". Previously , the CLU translite was found only on the third production run, Stern's 2012 'Disney TRON Legacy (3rd Edition)'. With the fourth run, theoperator was given a choice of translites to display in the backbox.

If a game has a CLU translite displayed in itsbackbox, the manufacturer sticker on the back of itscabinet should clarify from which production run the game was made.

On all Editions after the first one, the manufacturer provided the wiring for a shaker motor but did not provide the motor itself. Customers had to buy the shaker motor from after-factory providers.

Sold my Tron last year. Beautiful game but could never get into the gameplay or the theme. Now if they run a LOTR VE that is another story. Sold mine a couple of years ago and want one back.
