    Lower playfield is done and installed.

    Plan on having the entire game done in a couple more weeks.

    'Tis a thing of beauty... Can't wait to see the entire thing. You are a very talented chap indeed!

    This looks great....I didn't even know they did a KRULL themed pinball machine...slick indeed. I loved this movie as a kid...I still remember the fight with the giant spider and him using the bladed boomerang to beat the giant monster at the end....very cool movie!

    Please post a video of this when it's fully up and running.....I'd sure like to see it!!!!

    Yeah.... don't watch it again as an adult. Krull was better in memory than it is as a movie.

    Thanks for posting Chris and really enjoy see pics of your amazing work!

    I think there are a few exceptions. The original Star Wars Trilogy (episode IV, V and VI) held up pretty well for me.

    It's actually a good movie imo.. great musical score and the story is very awesome.

    I can't wait to see this game fully working.


    #10 3 years ago

    I wonder how much this pin would sell for if Chris put it on ebay?

    I would still take it over 90% of the crap that's been in the theaters the last few years. Yes, Hollywood is getting that BAD!


    #12 3 years ago

    Chris- looks fantastic. Cannot wait to see the final pics.


    #13 3 years ago

    Hope this means were going to get another youtube video soon. Very nice hep, very nice.

    Who would want to ride a horse that's ON FIRE!?! Oh, and it can fly....


    #15 3 years ago

    22k - 25k range?

    Possible. Very hard to put a price on this one.

    I believe only the feet are what catch on fire.

    I guess you ride what you have to ride, when you have to get to the Black fortress before the twin suns rise and it's over a thousand leagues away.


    #18 3 years ago

    Keep posting updates looks awsome as always HEP.

    Loved the movie as a child and agree never watch those kind of movies as an adult.

    Really enjoy the colors in this game.

    Is this going to be for sale upon completion?

    Working on rebuilding the main playfield now.
    Here is the before and after as I progress since I wasn't able to capture the main playfield on youtube at the start..

    It won't cover much.
    That pattern is on the plastics also.


    #23 3 years ago

    Where did this machine get so much pf wear is the question.
    Never mass produced, it must have lived a life with a dedicated pinhead to wear that much.


    #24 3 years ago

    How do you see that entire lower playfield thru that tiny window?

    It's a lenticular window, the playfield looks very small when viewing.


    #26 3 years ago

    Love the resto chris. This game is rare as they come and about as bad as they come play wise as well. Looks amazing as usually though.

    This game was heavily routed.I have a Ramp Warrior to do next that looks even worse but is more rare.I think it all stems from the period where these games were nothing special just pinball machines.Those days are over now.

    fusion301 said:

    The lower playfield looks to be about the size of an index card when in play.This made me struggle a little bit during the restore as to if it was worth the effort I put into the lower or not but at the end of the day it shows 100 percent when the main playfield is raised and that is what I decided was most important.


    #29 3 years ago

    Amazing work.

    Are the other youtube videos yanked again?


    #30 3 years ago

    I don't get why the vids are removed. It's a shame cos I'd love to watch the older ones.

    The videos are not always up forever so enjoy them when you can.
    There are a lot of things that go on that bother me after I put the effort into making my videos or galleries and I then decide to take them down or close them up.There are very few that have put as much effort in as I have in those things but it isn't an unlimited resource anymore.It would go a long way if people that copy,borrow or quote to give at least a little acknowledgement or credit.Without that it takes something I thought would be a positive and turns it into a negative and creates a situtation where I can see no real upside to the effort or sharing .


    #32 3 years ago

    Just looked it up on IPDB! W0w! Only 10 Produced!!!

    It will be VERY cool to have some great HEP pictures of such a rare gem!

    I for one have seen a few of your vids when you post them and they're always enjoyable and entertaining to watch.... (Especially since we're limited with pinball video content these days, I like to soak in everything I can find)

    It's a shame that events have transpired to make you feel that way. However I'm happy enough just watching your new vids.


    #35 3 years ago

    Wow very cool on the lenticular window showing the entire playfield - are there many other games that used that concept?

    Please don't pull a "Clay".

    People involved with pinball quickly know where the kudos truly belong. There's always going to be people that bring you down. Don't give in to the malicious jerks that infect this hobby!

    That being said, I didn't expect your material to be up for long. People that give in this hobby are not appreciated for what they do, and often give into the "trolls". I'd like to see your videos brought back, because I feel they bring a lot to the community. Personally, I have all your videos ripped to my hard drive. Mainly because I've seen good guys (like you) get brought down by the rift-raft, and fall into the "screw this/you" category. I expected you to pull them.

    Bring them back for the people that love pinball man... Screw the rest.

    Really?!? I'm quite found of it via Pinmame...

    It's no Spirit, but I would probably rank it higher than Haunted House or Black Hole...

    I can certainly understand your viewpoint, Chris, but I'm sure you also realize how much of a tremendous asset your videos and photo galleries are to the pinball community. It would be a shame if a few jerks ended up ruining it for everyone else. For the record, I always give you credit whenever I use one of your photos. Case in point, here's a post from six months ago:

    I think the difference with that situation is too much to even address .


    #41 3 years ago

    nice work HEP


    #42 3 years ago

    Just a quick bump to say THANKS for posting the pics in this thread. Before/after pics, and escpecially those from high end restoration jobs such as this, are like pinball porn to me.


    #43 3 years ago

    Getting very close to completion now.Well at least cosmetically.
