DaveTRON's TRON Shrine/Arcade Restoration Site

on Wednesday, June, 04, 2003 3:10 PM
I have finally gone and done it. I have created a web page for my TRON collection and the restoration projects for my two arcade machines.

Go on over to TronShrine to see what I have put together. I will be making some small improvements over the coming weeks and updating as necessary.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

WOW, thats great!!! I love the arcade machines!!!



Rincewind thought about this and then, with an air of finality, started to take off his last sock.
"No half-bricks," he said to no-one in particular. "Have to use sand?"
"You're going to attack them with a sockful of sand?"
"No, I'm going to run away from them. The sockful of sand is for when they follow.

Trace helps Sketch duct tape his head back together and pop his eyes back in.

Messy, messy!

Wow, DaveTRON! Cool collection! Is that Mercury statue a maquette or something? She's really cool.

Foilism,

The DaveTRON t-shirt was made by my team here at DI for my 37th birthday. They all wore one and then proceeded to douse me in water and whipped cream. I may have to make some more of those up and sell them on my web site!

FlynnsPlace,

Steven and Richard came to our offices at DI while back and that photo was taken in my office. I was a giddy TRON fan that day. I have met with both of them subsequent to that meeting, and they are both very nice guys.

Sketch,

The Jet drawing is actually supposed to be me. It is from a poster someone on my team put together for me when I went on vacation once.

Killer collection DaveTRON, keep up the good work on the website, seeing a collection like that inspires me to expend my own

I just re-did the site and added descriptions and better images for some items. I added a few new items this week too! I had to remove Mercury too, she was a little premature. She'll be back in August!

I added some new images and new items this week. I had forgotten some t-shirts I have and a Tiffany Lamp that is a perfect match for the one in the film on Flynn's desk. I only have the image of Flynn's up right now, but by Saturday I will have a pic of my own as well. The shrine keeps growing!

What I really need are suggestions on how to improve it. I want to make it the destination for info on TRON items. I know the basic style is good but kind of yucky too. I want to give it a cleaner look and be more informative on each item. Anyone got some ideas?

Hmmmm.

Anyway to divide up the items such as posters, toys, props and such. You could even divide it up to original Tron items to newer 2.0 items. Just throwing out ideas.

He he he. Idea... For the room photos, you could make a floorplan drawing of the room and link the images to where you click the area to see the items or room photo.

Foilism,

It's not the lamp, but a near exact duplicate of it. The film lamp is over in the Disney Property Building last time I saw it. This style is out there, you just gotta hang out in places where Tiffany lamps are sold to find it. [Ugh...Shiver] My wife bought it in the early 80's when I was still a pup in High School and cranking my hard earned quarters into the TRON Arcade Machines. When we married, she had it and then later in our marriage I discovered that we had a lamp just liike Flynn's. Another sign she was the woman for me! [grin]
Sketch,

Good ideas. You still into the idea of helping me with some art?
