RAD variations

Top in row (lineup pic) / right (back pic) has a bigger sleeve and the "A" is not cut off. Can be seen in the HiFi logo too.

One back is purple and the other has a color fading from purple to blue. But is not a discoloration.

Please check YOUR copy which you have!!

You do know how sleeves were made with a machine and someone would just add a stack of printed labels in to get folded, glued etc.

I remember when my father and I bought our copy of Predator, the sleeve was wider, this is just movement in a mass production machine and is normal.
Even printing with colors, ink runs low and this I'm sure was an acceptable change in color before they refilled.

Mass production inexactness is absolutely correct.

But would be interessting to know which is more common, the smaller or the bigger sleeve. But since the factoray boxes with punchole RADs was found, gues it's clear which is easier to find. I have seen lots of RAD LDs over time, but only 1 with bit lager sleeve and not cut "A". Or maybe never noticed before.

My Science Project (1985) [360 AS] is the same case. With the yellow line frame and the text in the corner. It was not easy to find a right shaped one in good condition.

I managed to pick up the UHD-BD from Vinegar Syndrome on release. It's a treat considering for how long the film was in limbo due to copyright issues. Absolutely astonoshing restoration.

I have this on VHS, LD, Pirated DVD (was never released) and the Vinegar Syndrome BD/UHD4K. LOVE this movie! It was a childhood staple.

I also have the soundtrack on cassette, now only if i could find the vinyl at a reasonable price (yeah right) haha

Ok. Why not? You could have RAD and 3 other titles instead.

He has them running in quad balanced configuration. Double opposite sine waves cancel out all video noise.
