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.  Tongue

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

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  Undecided

Hopefully, the SN is written inside the cabinet, in different location  Cool Impossible to miss it  Smiley  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'  Wink
Do you know what does it mean by the way?

Excellent Etienne !!!

At least you can be sure of the sizes now Wink Wink

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  Grin

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  Wink

(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
