The Lord of the Rings

Pinball / October, 2003 / 4 Players

Notable Features:

First game specifically developed to use an "interim" Whitestar MPU board system that has a new 16 bit sound system. Balrog LED update available from manufacturer; later machines came with the update factory installed. Cabinet advertised as 55 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 75 1/2 inches high; 260 lbs.

Jerry Vanderstelt did the cabinet, backbox, and the backglass. O'Connor and Hudson did the playfield and the plastics (the "hard parts" according to O'Connor). The first run of machines produced reportedly totaled 4017 units, but multiple later runs produced the machine again in smaller batches.
