    I heard a short while ago that the BTTF box was to be re issued with an indication or clue on the case to distinguish it from the first effort. Is anyone able to confirm this? I believe that the R1 has a number 2 or something in the barcode area to distinguish it from the first issue.

    I got the first R2 issue as a gift and it remains sealed, in the hope that, with the receipt, I will be able to stroll into the high street retailer from whence it came and do a straight swap.

    Any ideas?

    Jack.

    If I was to purchase a new region 2 (or region 1) copy would I be guaranteed a "fixed" version? I've got the cdwow version but I cant be arsed with sending it back, i'll just sell it.

    OK, well just do as I said above. The address to write to is:

    FAO Customer Services
    Universal Music
    Chippenham Drive
    Kingston
    Milton Keynes
    Bucks
    MK10 0AT

    They wrote back to me within a week :)

    Best not to mention anything about regions in your letter (it's dual coded as Reg 2 and 4 anyway).

    The last letters said May anyway.

    Oh man :rolleyes:

    If it was a while ago, it's probably the old edition.

    The way to check is to go to the bit in BTTF Part II where Marty arrives in the future and is with Doc in a backalley. Doc hands him some modern clothes and presses a button on Marty's jacket. When Doc presses the button on the jacket, if this is cut off at the bottom of the screen then it's the misframed version.
