Notes: Artist Bob Timm told us he did both the backglass and playfield for this game while he was at Ad Posters. He said cabinet art was always done at the cabinet maker and, as far as he knew, none of the game artists had anything to do with it. Stern programmer Alan McNeil told us that this game did terribly in sales. We note that 21 units of this production run were made as knock-down games. Stern exported other models in this way to Leisure and Allied Industries of Australia to be made into complete machines. The backglass may or may not carry licensing information. If anyone locates an Ali machine with licensing information on the backglass and/or an LAI metal plate on the back of the cabinet, please contact us with your photographs.
