TRON LE Details

Hey everybody, Nick here with the new details for Stern Pinball's Limited Edition version of Tron. This was just announced today on their forums and also over on their Facebook page. While they haven't shown off any pictures of the actual game they did show off a picture of the new EL Wire that turns a really nice neon blue to a nice red color. It sounds really cool and I can't wait to see it in action. It should be noted that they will only be making 400 machines rather then the usual 500 that the past limited editions. Adam from Arcade Heroes is thinking the machine might go for $5,700 or more with all the added goodies, but for all of you pinball collectors and Tron fans it looks like it will be well worth it. Here's the release from Stern!

We announced that in later June we will make a Premium Limited Edition
of TRON.

Sounds like their putting in a lot for this limited edition. I hope the normal "Pro" models without the extra bells and whistles are just as fun to play without the new lighting and extra motion toys. I really hope I'll find one in the wild to play this summer. Lets hope that Stern will plan another launch party like they did with The Rolling Stones. If they do, I'll try my best to cover it...if they do an event in New York that is.
