A few people on here have asked about the thunderstruck UK test pressings here are some details.

They all have white labels with the sample number written on them ie “sample one”. All are ultra rare and it was said 7 copies of each and some of the higher numbers even less. Wether thats true or not who knows.

A few were sold a few years ago with “Adrenilin Records” and a telephone number written on them.The guy from Adrenalin records who was selling them was involved in instigating them being pressed at the plant. I personally felt that devalued them, much better with a clean label.

There are 14 different ones to collect.Fakes as yet do not exist.As the prices of rare AC/DC stuff appears to have doubled in the last few years valuing these is very difficult.Some were recently offered for sale for £1000 each.

Here are the colours,

Sample One – Dark Green
Sample Two – Light Green
Sample Three – Dark Blue
Sample Four – Light Blue
Sample Five – Clear
Sample Six – Yellow
Sample Seven – Red
Sample Eight – White
Sample Nine – Translucent Blue With Dark Blue And Red Splatter
Sample Ten – Translucent Grey With Blue,Red and Yellow Splatter
Sample Eleven – Translucent Orange With Red And Yellow Splatter
Sample Twelve – White With Blue And Yellow Splatter
Sample Thirteen – White With Red Pink Yellow Blue And Yellow Splatter
Sample Fourteen – Pink With Red White And Blue Splatter
 
Thanks for the great post. I've got sample 5 and sample 13

So if you have a massive income, but also an extremely tiny apartment without much space, then a collection consisting of only 20th century 12" coloured vinyls would make a good "Caymen Islands" stash that fits nicely into two 25 Lp cases that you could run out the door with in an emergency:

The above 14 Thunderstrucks
Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution UK Yellow Vinyl
Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution UK Blue Vinyl
Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution UK wasn't there also a red or orange?
Thunderstruck UK Promo Red Vinyl (any colour variations known for this promo?)

Dirty Deeds Ecuadorian Orange Vinyl
Dirty Deeds Ecuadorian Green Vinyl
Let There Be Rock UK Yellow Vinyl
Powerage Canadian Red Vinyl with hype sticker
If You Want Blood Dutch Splatter with hype sticker
If You Want Blood Dutch Yellow/Green Splatter with hype sticker
Highway To Hell German Orange Vinyl with hype sticker
Back In Black Ecuadorian Orange Vinyl

If I haven't missed anything, then just for completism you could throw-in the South African Rock Steady Splatter Vinyl compilation - a snap after paying out for the above.

Anyone want to take-on the challenge...? :)

I've got 7 and I'm already worth more dead than alive.
 
If no one bids more than seven, then you'll have to go for the set as you'll have the best headstart!
But you're worth more than all the vinyl in Vinolya ;-)

Thanks my good pal. Someone please come back with at least 8 or I'll have to sell a kidney to take up the challenge :)
 
I see two are for sale on eBay...
