I got my Tron Recognizer from that guy...



I got it with an US plug, and a simple passive 'power adapter' for EURO plug... no problem at all!

I'll definitively buy other stuff for him  Smiley

I just ordered this as my (belated) birthday present Cheesy



Blue........it had to be blue.....I don't know why really........the Atari logo never really had an official color. It was most white or black depending on what it was printed. And of course there is the awesome "ANTIC display list" colored one, but that was only "on screen"




Anyway......I "THINK" that it may be due to the Bladerunner Atari signs which were all blue....

Whatever the reason, I think the blue one looks the coolest IMHO.....now......we wait for delivery....

Thinking about this......Atari must have paid a nice sum to have those advertisements in Bladerunner right ?

So..........why was there never a Bladerunner game ? No arcade game, no console game....weird.

(don't care going off-topic a bit....it's my thread anyway Wink)

Also: about all the companies in the movie do not exist (really) anymore: Atari, Bell, Pan-Am.....seems like it was a bad move to be in this movie Smiley Coca-Cola escaped it seems Wink

Another thought: Bladrunner is set in 2019.....only 6 years to go.....

Mmmm, I think I now understand why Atari didn't do any Bladerunner themed game Wink

It would have been damn hard to make a game about Bladerunner in 1982 for sure....this is even from 1985.

Last friday, the mail-man rang at the door and I happened to have a day off. He had a big box...and the first 10 seconds I actually failed to remember that I had ordered something....  Grin

As you can see, it was very well packed.They use loads and loads of tiny "papers" which feel very soft. They are EVERYWHERE and getting them out takes a bit of time, you have to be careful not to damage that tubes.

I had to move up the center tube a bit to make the logo match better on the top, but it works fine and looks totally brilliant.

In reality, it is so bright, that the blue almost goes towards a white color if you look longer on it, I actually really like that. The glow otherwise is blue for sure.
