WHO IS TRONMAN??

The Real Tronman is Jay Maynard. He is a fan of the movie Tron and he set out to make a better TRON costume.

"I saw lots of TRON costumes on the net, and wasn't satisfied with any of them. I decided that I could do better."

The costume was entered into a TRON Masquerade contest.

"The universal reaction was "COOL!". I spoke for a few moments about how I wasn't TRON, but a simple payroll withholding calculation program that had gotten overweight by changes in the laws. I won an award for workmanship - and the judges said, afterward, that it wasn't even close."

Jay has gone on to become a minor celebrity due to his TRON costume. He has appeared in several magazines and has also appeared on TV Talk Shows. He is well known now as THE TRON GUY.

This is a game based on that overweight payroll program.
THIS IS.....TRONMAN!!!

I think for the most part it wasn't exactly his costume that gained him fame on the net, but rather a certain attribute of it in one of his pictures ... like the hoof of a certain dromedary... :ponder:

I love the LED light inside the cartridge. But I was wondering..... would it be possible to get a sticker set to put on the interior of the cart, that you could make look like circuitry (basically make it look "Tron-like") so that the cart would be more Tron looking when lit from the inside like those carts are?

Don't forget to put this cart into a tight, form fitting case to show off the entire "package" ;)

Sounds possible. I don't actualy put the carts together, Albert made this one.
This cart reminds me of the TRON arcade games joystick.

Right now it's going to be a one-shot with only 10-15 carts. Half of those are going to people who helped out on TRONMAN in the past.

Yeah...some of those Tron citizens wore tunics that in this case might lead to a little less visual buffer overflow, if you know what I mean.

Heh, I was looking for that picture but couldn't find it.
I had remembered that Tronman, had in fact made a disc that attached to his back when I was reading about him back when he was a "big star"

Is there any way that I can reserve a cartridge? I'd really like that cart, as a big fan of Adventures of TRON and well tron in general.

When I originally read this topic I thought it was all a joke. I thought to myself those were some nice Photoshopped pictures, but it appears it's all real.

The LED Looks awesome. Great idea.
