Who needs a Tron?

After about three plus weeks of scheduling, mostly from my end, tonight I headed down to Bloomington Indiana and picked up a Tron arcade game from the middle of no where that had been in a garage for the last 14 years.

Tron has landed in Indianapolis

I’m going to keep this post short, it is late. I had a travel buddy tonight, and I think he said it best when he said ‘deer, dogs and pumpkins – deer, dogs, and pumpkins!’. We saw some interesting parts of Bloomington Indiana tonight, that would have been treacherous even driving during the day. Let’s see, 5 deer eyeing the side of the truck, one dog chased the truck, and one pumpkin tried to bite the truck. We were destined to hit something.

I grabbed this Tron because it was a good, low cost deal. It is complete, but from what the owner said, not working. Currently a power supply issue, blowing a fuse.

Purchased a Tron game tonight

I don’t have any intention of keeping the Tron, it isn’t a game that interests me. I’m still looking for a Sinistar in the Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky area…or even one more state over bordering those. If you are looking for a Tron arcade game, drop me a line, maybe we can work a deal.

I also picked up an empty Pit Fighter cabinet. Hoping to have something more to talk about concerning that tomorrow….

Update: Late Dec. 2009 At the time that I got this Tron arcade game south of Indianapolis, I had a trade lined up for a Sinistar. However, it involved me driving north of Chicago to make the trade and I was looking for another option closer to home.

I didn’t find that option, and in early Dec. 2009 I traded this Tron machine for a Sinistar. I no longer have it. But if you have a Sinistar for sale in the states mentioned above do drop me a line.

Don't have a sinistar but I do have a nice Galaga if that interests you.

A Galaga UR? Or a Cocktail….

Where are you located again?

It's a Galaga UR. Located in Akron Ohio. Tron is big on my wish list.

I am looking for a Galaga cocktail only….

I've got a galaga cocktail with new underlay, new overlays, new cap kit, new power supply, coin door redone I might be interested in dealing for the tron. I'm on the Iowa/Illinois border about 5 hours from Indianapolis.

I think that Tron is better than the one I have! You certainly have the bug…keep going, you'll probably end up with a nice dedicated Major Havok or Quantum before long. Maybe a side deal on the road trip to pick up Sinistar. o.0

From one arcade addict to another eh?

And I've been approached about a 40 cab bulk buy….the cliche now is that its a great time to be a buyer of arcade games….

But really the best position is to have a tremendous storage space. You know game values will rebound some, and to snatch up all the deals now and sit on them for a bit would be the smart thing to do.

I can park my truck on the driveway. My side of the garage plus the back could probably hold 25-30 packed in 🙂 Just LMK.

"If" I did this particular buy, I'd have to have the lot resold. There isn't anything in it of real interest, mostly Pac, Ms. Pacs, Galagas, etc.

Interested in your Tron Game. I live in Akron, Ohio.

Robert, thanks for the note. I updated the end of the post with the final resolve for Tron since this post is four months old now.
