I didn't check yet, but obviously no plate or sticker on the outside part of the cabinet.

Actually played Krull a little on the Atari 2600. Hope the arcade version is a bit better.  :P

Well, according many Atari 2600 reviews, it seems that Krull is one of the best Atari 2600 games  :roll:

For example this one.

Saw videos of both games on Youtube and it doesn't look like the 2600 is a port of the arcade game.

Ok, so the external sticker for the SN was there...



...but its no more there  :-\

Hopefully, the SN is written inside the cabinet, in different location  8) Impossible to miss it  :)  :arrow:







it's 15378

Now, it would be interesting to have an other similar Gottieb sticker example, in order to see how the SN is written. Any US Q*Bert or Mad Planet or even Q*Bert Cubes owner in the place that may show us the SN details?

Perfect Etienne!
But don't forget to change also  the 'GV-103A' to 'GV-105'  ;)
Do you know what does it mean by the way?

Excellent Etienne !!!

At least you can be sure of the sizes now ;) ;)

I hope you allow me some anal remarks ?

- The words "SERIAL" and "GV-103A" look to be in bold on your repro, but not on the original ?
- How about the color in the Gottlieb logo ? Was that really colored ?
- The Columbia Pictures logo (the half circle) looks blue on your repro but looks black to me on the original

Sorry if I am talking obvious nonsense here.

My guess G stands for Gottlieb and V for Videogame. And than a number for the game. Just some wild guessing of course.

i dont know what it means, but Andre's suggestion sounds very plausible  ;D

it looks indeed bold, and it is, its just the effect of one bigger pic compared to a resized one.

when you "blow up" bold letters, they look thinner:



The color is not yet converted to black, i grabbed the vector logo from zorg  ;)

(i'll print both the black and the color, so you can choose when you see them which you use)

Hope that clears things up ..

i will change your number Bruno
