I consider myself a pretty big fan of Krull, I have the movie…on Laserdisc and DVD…I also have the awesome board game, the plastic collector’s cups and back in the day I racked up a pretty good score on the arcade game. However, it was thanks to our friends Mike Maginnis and Carrington Vance over at the No Quarter Podcast that just last week I learned we almost had ourselves a Krull table from Gottlieb back in 1983!
According to the Internet Pinball Machine Database the designer of the table, John Trudeau, there was a prototype of the table with a transparent playfield but Gottlieb honchos deemed it to expensive to produce. Due to the failure of the movie and arcade game to set the world on fire the pinball table was shelved though a few have made it into collector’s hands.
Thanks to Basil LeBlanc’s YouTube Channel we can see the Krull table in action, by the way he doesn’t have the glass on the table so you might notice the play mechanics are a little loud.
