Today I got... my Tron-themed computer room and Display Cabinet FINISHED!
(Sorry about the graphics intensive post)
I have a lot of unique things here, custom made, as well as some "rare" stuff. This obviously isn't "all" the Tron Swag and collectibles I have, just the "open" stuff I am proud to display.
My room is kinda small, and my picture-taking skills truly stink. Here's the "walls" of my computer room taken from a perspective where I can actually hold the camera and shoot...
Yes, those are simply spin master toys I have hanging from the ceiling, and the other wall holds my 1982 Tron Trading Card display.
Corner Display Case
Here's where my "creme de la creme" stuff is. I have over 20 posters, I just havn't figured out where or how to display them. I'm also waiting for a decent frame for my End Of Line Club poster, but here's what I got in another corner of the room.
A picture of my shadow boxes behind the display cabinet.
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.
Now, that display case in the above picture has six individually "themed levels". All the lighting is custom, and there's currently 5 "media players" playing various clips 24x7 (even when the lighting is off).
Yes, one of every spin master deluxe disc, including an AR Collectible original tron plate. The Rinzler disc is signed by Mr. Boxleitner himself, and the disc was modified with custom lighting and runs off of AC. I'm waiting for Artfunk to complete my custom baton which will go on a stand in front of the discs.
The amount of effort that went into this shelf is unimaginable and has taken me almost 3 years. The SDCC Tron Vintage figure arcade, the Coleco football game, and the original tomytronic was easy to find, it just took a lot of patience to wait to find them at reasonable prices. But the custom Tron Arcade Cabinet, Space Paranoids Cabinet, and Discs of Tron Environmental cabinet were all custom made, and then further customized to include a media player and speaker so they are playing the actual attract and game play screens of the arcade. Maybe I'll shoot a youtube video, but these arcade machines are working!
The kevin flynn light cycle is on a custom base with an attached media player playing clips of the light cycle in the movie as well as some original light bike movie clips. Those are standard neca light bikes with the kubrick tank in the background. I'm still waiting on a kubrick wireframe light cycle to come in when will share the base with the white lightcycle.
Another custom base with a media player playing clips from Tron Legacy. This base was made for my 12" Disney pullback light cycle (or the sideshow lc), but I didn't have the heart to remove it from the package, so I just stuck two of my spin master toys on it. In the background is my favorite pic in Starfire glass of the light cycles. This glass is actually back-lit by color changing LED's so seeing it "live" is a lot cooler than the picture here.
This is just a very small part of my collection of different "media". I want to get a laserdisc and VHS in there eventually, and I felt the light cycle USB represented "media". Also, I made a conscious decision not to include "every" released Tron game, but I would like to get in there the Atari or Intellivision game if I ever pick one up.
Like most Tron memorabilia collectors, I have many books, magazines and comics. I've got an entire bookshelf that has my old Tron stuff stored. I decided for my display case to just include something representative from every era and no magazines. The two Art of Tron books (both original and Legacy) are there, my custom Digital Frontier book (therpf.com), and the only Tron uprising book I've been able to locate is in there as well.
Let me know what you think!
