    *ATTN: PROGRAMS*

    This is now officially a (UNLTD RUN) For Sale thread for the retrofit kits that fit the deluxe tron disc toy!

    *UPDATE*

    OK, HERE IT IS!

    Finally finished setting up the order page. Below are links to this project's related videos!

    Full Kit Build Time Lapse
    Rinzler Discs
    Single Sided Mod
    Double Sided Mod
    V2.1 KFlynn White Disc Mod



    Everyone can place their orders HERE: fatal5150.com (This is now a UNLTD RUN thread!)

    Or send me a PM to order. I have completed discs available too.

    You can also email me direct: soulinertia@Hotmail.com


    Please let me know if you discover any programming bugs while checking out. Thanks again everyone for your encouraging comments and patience!

    Since there is such a long interest list I'm going to be shipping orders out in batches of 25/week. With the first orders shipping out Jan 31st, 2011! Hopefully I'll be able to ramp up production and get more & more out per week as things progress. The first orders submitted via paypal in will be the first orders to ship out. This is the best way I know how to handle these orders without things becoming a logistical nightmare! This will all be handled through paypal, so please do not send me PMs to let me know you have placed your order as my inbox is already fast approaching the limit. If you do need to leave me a note, there will be an option to add a comment with your order at checkout. You can also post on this thread once you have placed your order if you like but it is not required.

    There will be a section on the order page where you will be asked to fill in your RPF username. This is the only way I'll be able to keep track of member's orders in conjunction with emails and addresses, so please do not leave this section blank. I will do my best to keep things organized and keep the order batch list as up-to-date as possible. Please allow at least 24hrs for your name to appear on the batch list once you have submitted your order. ;)

    Sorry to be all "n00b13", but what is the "Deluxe Disk"? I assume that this is an add-on mod kit for either a preexisting product or fan-made kit but I can't find any info on it.

    If this is the mod-kit, where would I get the disk that would be modded?

    Would you be open to offering just the electronics kit? With discs featuring clear rubber on the horizon, that's probably what I'd be primiarily interested in:

    Thank you all for your interest. I didn't expect such a vigorous response!

    I'd like to take a minute to clarify a few things and answer some of the questions I've been receiving:

    Q: How soon will these be available?
    A: I'm still in the prototyping process for the Full Kits. I'm hoping to have a full working prototype by the end of next week. I'll periodically post progress pics as things move along. My goal is to get at least a few Full Kits shipped out before the premier. As for the Basic Kits, they are almost ready to go. My first mold broke, so I'm in the process of creating a new one and hope to have it finished this weekend!

    Q: How soon can I send payment?
    A: I'm not going to accept any payments until I get all the kinks worked out on my prototypes.

    Q: How will these be lit?
    A: Ultra bright high efficiency LEDs running off a 9v power supply that utilizes the existing batteries that come with the disc.

    Q: What colors are you offering?
    A: I just want to clarify. All kits use the same translucent white rings and will be lit using different colored LEDs. The Sam/Quorra disc is illuminated white on both inner and outer rings and will be designated as (W/W), the Clu disc will be illuminated in an amberish yellow on both rings (Y/Y), the Rinzler disc will be illuminated orange for the inner "C" ring and white for the outer blade ring (O/W). I'm also open to custom color orders such as blue, green or red.

    Q: How much work is involved in modifying the disc to get this retrofit kit installed?
    A: For the Basic Kits, it's a snap! Just take the disc apart by unscrewing the two halves and replace the blade ring with the new one. Gently pop out the existing "C" ring with a flat head screwdriver at all access points underneath and the new one should fit snugly in place. Two holes must be drilled halfway into the new "C" ring in order for the existing 2 LEDs to fit inside.

    As for the Full Kits, that is another story. To be honest it is going to take some skill and quite a bit of modification, so get ready to fire those dremel tools up! I'll be including step-by-step instructions on how to install the kit the way I did it, but please note that my way is not the only way. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of variations all you creative artisans come up with!

    Q: Would this be compatible with a modified version of the deluxe disk with two "clean" sides attached together?
    A: Let me start by saying that this kit is design to illuminate the "C" ring on only one side, but Yes I believe it can be made to illuminate both sides, either by cutting out the ring on the bottom or attaching two top halves together. I've messed around with this option myself but ultimately decided against it. Too many complications arose with this method. Getting both sides to attach and still allow access to remove them for battery changes is quite the obstacle in and of itself. I've also designed the kit to have the LED's in the "C" ring fire directly up through it so the other side won't be as bright unless you modify the kit. I figure from either a costuming perspective mounted on your back or as a display piece your only really going to be seeing one side most of the time anyways.

    Q: Will the disc still have the sound function?
    A: In short, no. There is very limited space inside the disc and I really didn't care for the sound effects that the disc came with so I recommend tearing out all existing electrical components to make room for the LEDs. This is what I did on my prototype. That doesn't mean it can't be done though.

    Q: What kind of lighting effects will the kit have?
    A: Using a 3 position toggle switch, you will have the option to have the center "C" ring on only, both the "C" ring and the outer blade on, or everything off.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll be happy to answer!






    In the meantime, here is a sneak peak at my progress thus far:

    *note: Even though the light appears to have a blueish hue to it in some photos. The light itself is pure white.

    I dig that Kevin disc, and the Rinzler disc too! Any idea when they will be available nickytea?

    I'd definitely consider offering just the "guts" (electronics).

    The only problem I see with the clear is it being too clear, not allowing proper even dissipation of the light.

    To see what I'm talking about check out the images below.

    Here you can see the difference between the LED's firing through the clear blue as opposed to my semi opaque/translucent white:

    Definitely put me down for a full kit! (Sam kit... might have to get the colors too... :) )

    Have you considered using tri-color LEDs (if they make acceptable tri-color in the colors we need) so one could just switch between the different characters at will? :) Just an interesting though, probably a lot more circuit design though...

    I'm definitely in for a basic kit. Would you offer a modified basic kit for those who want to use 2 clean sides of the disc that way 2 "c" pieces are included?

    Sounds something I would be interested in.
    I have the deluxe disc and really dislike the 'toy' quality of it.
    Has there been any word on how accurate the size/shape is to the original prop?

    I talked to one of the designers from Spin Masters and he said it's the exact same size as the prop. Nevertheless, I wanna double check myself.

    If you do offer an electronics-only kit, how much would that cost?

    WOW! That looks AMAZING! Great work SI!



    And to Mr.Sinistar... No the toy isn't the EXACT same size as the prop. It is close.

    From what I've read, 'wheat king' who worked on the manufacturing of the toy deluxe disc for spinmaster has stated on Tron Sector that the Deluxe Identity Disc "is the exact size of the props used in the Tron Legacy movie." and that the (cheapo flying version) Identity Disc "is larger for flight purposes" and not exact.
