    If you can't tell I am pretty excited about my recent pick-up. TRON. I first off want to thank GAP for an excellent and easy transaction. Mike was very helpful every step of the way.

    This is my very first NIB game and I could not be happier! I won't be able to dive into it too much until later tonight, but WOW, looking forward to spending some time with this game. I have LEDs for the inserts ready to go, still need to order some GI LEDs. More pictures to follow when I get it updated.

    Congrats on the first nib. Hope its a blast for you!

    #6 7 years ago

    What LEDs did you get? Im wondering if Tron needs ghostbusters or not.

    #7 7 years ago

    I have some coin taker premiums from a few sets I bought. I should have close to a full set. I will let you know. It is a pretty fun game. Question, if the rectifier motor for the magnet loud are your machines?

    #8 7 years ago

    What are you doing to the game?

    #14 7 years ago

    Lol! Everything. Once done I am sure we will get some pics up.

    #15 7 years ago

    Nice pick up! Congratulations.

    #16 7 years ago

    Loven mine. Upgrade the speakers for max enjoyment. Mantas protector and mylar on shooter lane. Cointaker double leds cool white work great.

    #17 7 years ago

    Very nice pickup. Congrats on your first NIB. Start pimpin...

    #18 7 years ago

    I put in the Cointaker premiums last night, they look great! The only problem is I didnt have enough of the cool whites on hand so I took some out of the back box on my TZ though the ones in my TZ back box are not premium (non-ghosting) and I did notice those inserts to ghost slightly. I would definitely recommend the premium if you go with Cointaker. I will follow up once I get the rest of the premium LEDs in and swap out.

    What is the breakdown of light count for TRON ? How many 44s, 555s, 89s, etc. Thanks

    I had left over LEDs for other kits I purchased, I didnt keep track of the numbers. I had to order more, I will try to get a count when I get the rest of the LEDs in.

    #22 7 years ago

    Nice score...it is a fantastic game!

    #23 7 years ago

    Full Cointaker Super Brite Premium LED kit. Looks amazing! I accented the two side of the FP with orange and blue. I think it looks pretty nice! Also added the TRON neon light. I dont know how it feel about it, you get quite of bit of reflection on the glass. We will see. I might move it back further so it doesnt have line of sight to the glass.

    #24 7 years ago

    Looking good Tlamb. I would take that light down. It says tron on the trans right below it IMO. Its a nice looking sign but I would just hang that puppy on the wall. Also the glare on the glass is just as bright as the sign!!

    #25 7 years ago

    I agree. The sign is very cool, but it is just too darn bright to use as a topper. You're better off sticking it on a nearby wall.

    #26 7 years ago

    Updated with sign back further. You can see a little for the picture locations, but not at all while playing. I like it!

    Yeah, I had it up on my wall before. Maybe I will look into Laserifics topper. Thanks for the feedback!

    I like the TRON neon but I too think it might be too bright and reflective....

    #29 7 years ago

    In someone's video I saw a neon Recognizer that I thought looked very cool. I looked around the net for it but couldn't find one for sale.

    #30 7 years ago

    Uploaded Video. It is a little grainy because of the lack of lighting, but all in all I think things are coming along well. Next step. Arcade mod. I have the screen coming, and I am going to fabricate my own cabinet. Pictures to follow.

    Man, I like that sign. Play with sunglasses if you must but keep it. Actually, moving it back seems to have done the trick.

    Where did you get your Neon TRON sign at ??

    #34 7 years ago

    Looks pretty sweet. Enjoy your new game!

    There are a bunch of cool neons on this site, check it out. Great product.

    #36 7 years ago

    Tlamb must be a KLOV'r. Sorry if I don't recognize your handle, but I'd know this neon.

    I'm gonna put a piece of smoked plexi in front of my green neon Recognizer as a tron legacy topper if I ever get one to cut down on the glare. Same one as on BTTA's site, but got mine direct from the supplier in custom color to match the "Corrupted" programs from Tron 2.0 video game.

    Back to the Arcade orders their neon from a supplier in Hong Kong, the guy has GREAT customer service. The neon tubes are a little bit thinner than what you'd expect but they look fantastic. I have heard that he is NOT going to produce large neons any longer, just ones around this size. They tried to get him to do a more accurate, larger sign, he shipped a few out, but there were so many problems with breakage that he is not going to do the big ones anymore.

    As I understand it, BTTA doesn't really make hardly anything on these. He's just facilitating the order between the producer and people ordering off his site.

    #37 7 years ago

    Yes -that is it.... I really like that sign. I wonder if it will be too bright as a topper.

    #38 7 years ago

    They're pretty dang bright. I can get some pics if you like....heres what I got when I unboxed it...

    #39 7 years ago

    As an alternative to the bright neon, I modified Tron Deluxe Discs with EL Wire and LED strips. They're bright, but definitely not distracting.

    That's a bit wierd seeing the red disc. Yarrr... brain...does...not........compute...

    #41 7 years ago

    In person, it's orange - as it is Rinzler's disc.
