Nice! A yellow classic one to look like Clu's from that movie would look good!

The classics are awesome! I also checked out the other stuff on your web site (Guess you already are doing what I suggested in the PM lol) and awesome stuff.

Now I want a Flynn jacket!!

http://mods.xkill.net

I used to do computer modding as a hobby (until I had kids - that cuts down my power-tools time significantly). I was fairly well-known at one point. I wrote a book, was on TechTV a few times, etc.

Now I just work on small little projects that can mostly be done inside the house without making any noise to wake up the kids at night.

Cool site, man! You really have done good work! Do you sell any of it?
And where did you get the Tron toys in the Encom 2600 pictures?

They aren't toys, but
small resin replica lightcycles (about 2 inches long, if I remember correctly). I think I bought them from starshipmodeler.com. I then sanded them and airbrushed them with UV reactive paint.



You can see the build process of TRON 2600 (an atari 2600 TRON themed case mod) here

Amazing, amazing stuff!
If you're still selling the coasters, I'd be most interested!

In the other picture there was some toys like a recognizer, 2 light cycles and Tron and Guard figures. Anyway do you sell that Encom system?

Yes, I'm still selling them. PM me or email me (rcaslis@xkill.net) and let me know what you are interested in.

Ah, those. They are a couple of the old TRON kubrick sets. I have the recognizer set and the tank set. They also have a MCP set and a tron/yori set but I don't have those.

They are super cool. I'd recommend them to anyone, but they are hard to find these days (I think they were only sold in Japan to begin with). The best place to start looking is EBay... I saw the MCP set up there recently.


trekking95 Wrote:Anyway do you sell that Encom system?

No... that was far too much work to sell. I think it took about 3 or 4 months working a couple of hours a night to get them right. The parts alone probably cost $400.

Do you sell any of the stuff on your site besides coasters?

I looked on eBay and found the tank, reco and MCP sets.
They are very nice but the prices are up there.

I don't really sell anything else on my site. Most people are not willing to pay a reasonable amount for the work involved. In a lot of cases where people have asked me to build something for them they don't even want to pay the cost of parts alone.

That being said, there are exceptions (and I'm willing to discuss anything). For example, the Han Solo in carbonite case mod - I worked with Shuttle on that one. They provided me 2 systems and I made 2 mods, one for them and one for me. I also was selling my modified discs for a while, but it ended up not being worth my time. My thread here on tron sector had lots of people showing interest but in the end most people were not willing to pay a price that covered just the cost of components, not even counting anything for the time involved. I did sell a few though (less than 5).

As for the kubrick sets, they are nice. You can get a few of the figures alone (without vehicles) from thinkgeek.com. They even have a couple tron:legacy kubrick figures.

Thanks for the kind words.

I don't think of myself as very good... just someone with a touch of OCD, a touch of insomnia, and a little bit more money than sense.

I end up sometimes buying 2 or 3 of certain parts before I "mod" it successfully (i.e. I destroy several in the process).

Yes, I'm still selling them. I thought about Etsy but never got around to creating an account.

There is some TRON stuff there... most of it looks like it's pretty poor quality.

Thank you!
