Unfortunately not all the albums were released in LP format.

Fright Night was
Twilight Time was (with the title Stratovarius II)
Dreamspace wasn't
Fourth Dimension was
Episode was (maybe the rarest)
Visions wasn't
Destiny wasn't
Inifinite wasn't (at least I have no such information)
Intermission was?? (I saw some being sold on net, but I haven't seen it before)
Elements Pt 1 was
Elements Pt 2 was
Stratovarius was
Polaris was

But once Vic comes into this thread, he can tell it more precisely. :) This is as accurate of information as I can serve with.
Ok, I will go for the ones you mention then:) But I guess the availability is quite limited..

For how much? For reference: I bought it for around 40 euros.

350 SEK, which should be about 35 euros. It wasn't in *perfect* condition, but almost.

And of course, the freight cost comes to that. I don't know what that is yet:-)

Some small errors in your list here:
Twilight Time was released as Twilight Time also, not only just II.
Dreamspace is also avaiable.
Infinite came as a picture-LP and Intermission is also out as a double LP with pics on it.
So the only albums with no vinyls is Visions and Destiny.....which is a darn shame.....would have been nice as picture discs indeed.

Well, for one thing you can create your own little "ultra-surround-world" if you have 5 different CD-players :-D

You're wellcome :) Dont know what kind of taste of music my grandchildren (if I ever get them) will have, but my self I'm quite happy so far :D Of course there's still lot to collect, some are difficult to find (vinyl test pressings, Dreamspace color mistake, Wings of Tomorrow-cd etc), some are missing from my collection just because lack of money (Japan editions, Noise and Sanctuary releases etc).

Didn't know a better topic to put this, but today I visited a local second hand market or "flee market".
There was this section with thousands of LP's, and I found two copies of Stratovarius "II". Both claimed to be unplayed, and they were mint, except for 3*7cm price tag in upper right corner of front page. Price was 40€ each.
I already have two of them so I didn't buy either one.
I there's someone who desperatly want's them )or one of them), and sends me money in advance, I am ready to help.

*edit* And I got French shaped version of Eagleheart yesterday"

just use the camera of my friend to take a photo of II 1993 release.

compared with 1991 release, the only difference is the cd :wink:

I bought this on eBay, and it seems to be rarer than the 1991 one, don't know why. :?

The Deep Unknown video is only included in Deep Unknown single, not in any Polaris version as far as I know.
What is the record label and catalog number on Brazilian version of Polaris?

Yes, the video clip of DU is included in "DU finland only single" instead of any Polaris album releases. Besides, the video clip is also included in "Monsters Of Metal Vol.7" which is the latest music video compilation DVDs released by Nuclear Blast. :wink:

I'm also curious about it. :D

And I found the version released in Ukraine, the label is "Moon Records" and its catalogue number is "MR 3814-2".

A shame, but I don't have Dreamspace yet, either not finding it anywhere or not having money for it, or am buing something else.
