Looks like home shrinkwrap to me. When you can buy home shrinkwrap machines for $30, anyone can sell shrinkwrap stuff and pretend it's mint condition and new.

Unless you're buying from a requtable known dealer, it's best to assume the seller has exagerated the condition and faked the shrinkwrap. That way you won't be annoyed if you end up getting something that's 'used' when you were fantasizing about winning something in brand new mint condition.

The seller was selling legitimate shrink in the past, and he had a bundle of them. The shrink doesn't have the mesh sealed at the back, but maybe for the R's they had a different packaging system.

And of course even if it is in the original shrinkwrap from 20 years ago, doesn't mean it isn't creased, musty and with rusty staples - only you just can't check to be sure  :wink:

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

I never really expected to get past the 40 mark...  :D

(and yes I still have a full head of hair, even though it started going grey at the age of 12).

I have tons of hair; unfortunately, it slowly fell off my head and stuck to my back.
So, about the shrinky-dink R module: There is no way in hell I would ever buy a shrinked mod that was rare. No telling what you get.
