Well, I'm in the same category as you, Dawnstar, if not less.

I've got... Well....

Study-sketches of Uprising's Tron in my sketchbook? (Done just so I could adapt to drawing him recognizably at all.)

I consider the rest of you Programs lucky bastards! In all honesty, way to go, and that's some fine hunting, dedication, and luck you have!

Let them hear 'Tron lives!!'

Signed by Bruce Boxleitner!

if you only had a COA then this would be complete otherwise it's like All other sigs, of worth no value other than personal. Sorry to be the bearer of such information but you were bound to find out sooner or later anyhow.

Uhh, I think that with or without the COA, your statement is correct. IE, even with a "valid COA" , the value of this piece is mostly sentimental and personal. [What the heck is a valid COA anyway?!? Oh yeah, some "independent" 3rd party vouches for the authenticity of some something, a signature or whatever...]
I always laugh when people throw around "COA"'s, because I've seen a lot of fake COA's as well. In the case of Falty's cool signed poster in a frame, Mr. Boxleitner has NEVER been stingy with his signature, so with or without a COA, most people would be comfortable believing that the signature "is real". And a COA isn't "required" if you were around to see the signature happening, unless your whole purpose is to resell anyways. Granted, Falty probably "bought" this from someone, but "fake sig" or not (and it's MUCH harder for me to believe this could possibly be a fake knowing Mr. Boxleitner's signing habits), this is damn cool.

Unfortunately I can give a shit about them myself however, not many see it in that perspective. Take for example the collectors that love having graded figures. As a collector myself, I think it's ridiculous having to pay someone else tell you it's in great condition which you simply do yourself & choose the best of the lot, given the opportunity. I know this individual can care less about it though his prerogative was to receive a signature for sentimental value & for the fact that "he" personally met them face to face.

Those are interesting thoughts but I didn't buy it because of its resale value. I purchased it because of the sentiment. I've not seen one like it before.

Nice addition! Love the matting and the arrangement! Very cool piece. I love how it looks, very professional.

Not Today but actually last Thursday my best friend Christina was visiting from Philadelphia and she brought along my Christmas and Bday gifts!


4-Sam Flynn throwable discs
2-Rinzler throwable discs
and a Blue and Red Classic Identity Disc plate set from A&R Collectibles.


I'm wanting to take two of the Sam Discs and modify them in a way that they will light up and also the two halves separate (by the use of magnets) to show the interior much like in TRON: Uprising.

Damn, BanditTron! My circuitry is green with envy. :P

I've never really been into collecting things, but hell if I haven't had a compulsion to pick up some discs for myself! Now, if I only knew where to find such things...

Hahaha, I'll try.

I just have a ton of TRON: Legacy stuff on my Amazon Wishlist and that is what most people get me. My friend, Christina, pretty much got me all the discs on my list. Haha

Also, my Mom surprised me last week with a TRON birthday cake she had a local bakery make. It was a very cool thing for her to do.

Besides all the die cast vehicles (I know the white cycle is missing from the shadowbox, it's sort of in the display cabinet) is my Flynn Lives Arg collection.
The Flynn Lives black paper messages in the upper left.
Custom made pins representing every Flynn Arg badge that could be obtained in the ARG.
The SDCC Coaster and a custom acrylic coaster based on it in the upper right.
All the ARG tokens and blue holder, as well as a silver and gold Disneyland Electronica token.
A custom made Sam chip necklace (From therpf.com).
A custom made Alan Bradley Encom work badge (it's in the movie!).
The Flynn Lives Guest Badge and the Flynn Lives Arg badge.
The Flynn Lives Arg postcards, complete set.
Every Flynn Lives Arg pin, and a few "movie release" pins. All, pretty rare.
A custom made acrylic EOLC Map, movie-authentic (from therpf.com).
Tron Legacy pre-release movie admittance band.
In the background are pre-release movie "postcards" and screenshots.

That is the most wicked collection I've ever seen. and I LOVE the wall! haha. But your Shadow boxes.. those are awesome! I wish I had some skills to make them! But, you are missing the most important piece from the SDCC Tron Scavenger hunt! You're missing the Scavenger Hunt Disc /w Movie Trailer!

I have one if you're interested. lol.

Send it over on consignment. I'll add it to the shadowbox (pics above) and you'll maintain ownership. Just think of me as a museum caretaker...
