Tron Legacy Pinball for Dad

In collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, Stern Pinball announces its next pinball game, released May 1, 2011, is inspired by Walt Disney Picture’s TRON: Legacy.

The TRON: Legacy Pinball features an incredible 3D backglass that brings the film’s characters and story to life. TRON: Legacy Pinball also features exciting sound bites from the film’s main characters, as well music from the film’s original score.

In TRON: Legacy Pinball, players battle as Sam Flynn on the Grid against Clu and Rinsler. Players will enjoy multi-ball rounds themed around scenes from the film: ride the two ramps for Light Cycle battles on different levels of the Grid; defeat the motorized Recognizer target bank to expose Rinsler’s spinning Identity Disc; or fire the ball from Rinsler’s Disc to simulate a Disc War. There are numerous play features for characters in the film, including Kevin Flynn, Gem, Zuse, Quorra and Clu. Play all features to escape the Grid through the Portal.

John Borg is the playfield designer and is known for creating recent hits.  He is working side-by-side with the great design and engineering team at Stern Pinball. Pinball Hall of Fame artist John Youssi designed the art package and David Thiel engineered the sound.

Gary Stern, founder, CEO and chairman of Stern Pinball says, “We loved working with Disney on this great title. TRON: Legacy Pinball will be a great game for TRON: Legacy and pinball game fans alike.”

TRON: Legacy Pinball will also be released in a numbered Limited Edition version with more features.

About TRON: Legacy
TRON: Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything even captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade-a signal that could only come from his father-he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe-a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. TRON: Legacy is directed by Joseph Kosinski and produced by Sean Bailey, Jeffrey Silver and Steven Lisberger. The story is by Eddy Kitsis & Adam Horowitz and Brian Klugman & Lee Sternthal, and the screenplay is by Eddy Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, based on characters created by Steven Lisberger and Bonnie MacBird. TRON: Legacy is now available on multiple home entertainment platforms, including Blue-ray 3D™, Blue-ray™, DVD, Digital Copy, Movie Download and On-Demand. Also making its long-awaited Blu-ray debut is TRON: The Original Classic Special Edition.

Stern is more about cost cutting these days than it is about it's customers. The game play is boring and there isn't really much to do. The days of Spider man seem to be gone. I was with a friend at the Stern factory and I personally heard Jim Belt say"We have some nice cost cutting features". They have gone so cheap the main target only has one light for three targets. ???? Why not just do it properly the first time. Why not take the drop target and put multiple lights on it for a progressive to make it drop. Look at Rolling Stones...piece of junk. Iron man classis...another POS. Dump the limited editions and make one good line of machines. 4700. Tron retail and no leds going down the rails unless you buy the LE. It's Tron guys. Bottom line...Stern machines suck as of late.
