by our standards, they're variants, as they relate to design changes to the outer box (well, cover inlay).

Just did a quick search on ebay, just to be sure all manuals and carts (assembled in Uk) and looks like so.

The minor difference is the CE logo, being the most commum the variation without the CE logo.

So will create the other 2 variations

The without CE will not add any variation title, and the other two I'm thinking in:
For the existing one -> [CE Logo - White BKG]
New entrie - [CE Logo - No BKG]

PS- I'm thinking in not adding the name "Logo" just to be shorter.
and add the extra photos and trivia on all of them.

"White CE" and "Hollow CE" may be more concise.  these are also the terms used to describe NES seals.

Not much point in having the trivia if all 3 variations are in the db, and the extra media image are redundant if they are present on their respective entries.  While it is arguable what is appropriate for the "Extra Media" section, I'm of the opinion that any "Extra Media" images should be directly related to the variant itself.

Thanks I like that, even shorter!!

DONE. Just add for now the back cover that show the difference, because need to scan the other parts of the game, and I just scanned the back box for the trivia.

About Extra media, I agree, besides we need to have the ability to have images on RFG server for Trivia.

Doesn't exist. Whoever added must have been trying to add the eshop download. I would edit the page to match the upcoming LR release but the owners would be inaccurate. Please delete.

Another Variant the Mega drive Super Street Fighter Looks like to have several variations, the Euro regionwide one (multilanguage) and there are others with different manuals.

http://www.rfgeneration.c...nfo.pl?ID=E-040-S-04481-A

There are, at least, 4 different part numbers for the blue label inlay, all with the same cartridge 670-5448-50 (Cartridge), and besides the part numbers there are no artworks differences between them. And possible exist one for Germany(-18), but didnt find any. All have the same EAN/UPC

EU     Part# 1098-50 (spine) / 670-5449-50 (above EAN) / 672-2007-50 (Multilanguage Manual)  <-The one is on DB
ES     Part# 5449-06 (spine) / 670-5449-06 (above EAN) / no info, but smaller manual (less pages than EU)
FR     Part# 5449-09 (spine) / 670-5449-09 (above EAN) / no info but smaller manual (less pages than EU)
UK    Part# 5449-05 (spine) / 670-5449-05 (above EAN) / 672-2007-05 (English Manual - Same P# of the Brick Version)
    
Should I create the variants or leave the information on Trivia?
   
About the Brick UK:  
Part# 670-5448-50 (Cartridge) / 670-5449-50 (above EAN) / 672-2007-05 (English Manual - Same P# of the Brick Version)

Each of these variations have an observable difference in the cover inlay, so they should be separate entries- ESPECIALLY if some of those variants are specific to a single country.

Also, while we're on the topic of PAL Mega Drive (and by extension Master System):
I've noticed that Australian releases published by Sega often have a unique clamshell case identifying the distributor (Ozisoft or Sega Ozisoft) in the plastic itself.  Are there any other PAL countries that do this?

For master system I think it's only ozisoft.
Of course the tec toy, but thats brazil, but all games run in PAL consoles, I have some, and there was some imports from there by ecofilmes, being the most know the portuguese purples. (box and cart were produced by Tec toy in Manaus, Brazil).
There are one cases that have some kind of tape on the sides, but I haven't yet figured their origin. Some are found here in Portugal, they look like to came from Australia, but there are some UPC codes that relate to Sounth Africa, but could be some store specific UPC, because I don't find ownership for any of the UPC I found.


Regarding MEGA DRIVE
I'm finding a lot of small variants of Mega Drive games, specially for Codemasters games released on UK with diferent covers and codes near the UPC . (Just bought 70 games from Uk and I'm cataloging them  ehehe)

Codemasters code examples, with minor changes on the box:
-Brian Lara Cricket (UK)- [V1] and [001057 V2] - Same cart, only have V1 with manual
-Brian Lara Cricket 96 (UK) - [1508-V1] and ??
-Sampras Tennis 96 (UK)- [1103 V1] and [1103 V2] - Cart and manual equal
-Micro Machines Turbo Tournament 96 (UK) - [1275 V1]
-Super SkidMasters (UK) - [1329 V1]
-Super SkidMasters (EU) - [1332 V1] -> this is on DB with UK variatin images, both have the same UPC

Also the TENGEN games, have in some cases releases with coloured manual and others black&white

And finnaly have to change also the streets of rage II, because there are at least 3 variations in europe

Also other issue is this game:

http://www.rfgeneration.c...nfo.pl?ID=E-040-S-01440-A
It have specific country list, but maybe is better to classify as euro wide.  The portuguese version is a repack of this, with portuguese manuals and stickers with description/overview.


And by last but not the least: The mega drive/genesis ballistic/accolade releases (cardboard boxes), they are most of then in USA, but at the beggining I had a reject submission for the Euro variation, and started a discussion by making this as worldwide releases...in my opinion they should be US like they are now and also Euro, because most of them had repacked manuals in French/German...

For some reason the quote button isn't working, but - if there are variants, they can be added with appropriate indications of changes as long as there is an identifier. If it is same game in a different regions box, please just be sure it is a true variant and now a cobbling together of different items after the fact.

If Fantastic Dizzy needs fixed, please post in the incorrect region thread and I will fix.

If the same game was resold in Europe from Accolade and they changed the manuals, that would be a separate item. From what you are describing, I wouldn't classify that as worldwide.

After some investigating, it turns out this isn't a bundle with the game, just a boxed t-shirt.
