Okay, I must be behind. Or maybe I was just ignoring anything to do with just a repaint like extreme Metalhead. But when I came across two very unique versions today, I was still pretty surprised. What's the dealio?

What is the difference(s)? These are the only two I'm familiar with:

1) Original release

2) Recent repaint

Okay, so this is REALLY weird. I don't have my original version handy (it's packed away), but I think that one of these two is exactly that - the original version of Metalhead in the package. Now, this is what really makes it weird - the photos on the package (both front and back) are also of the original version. And yet all the text says "Metalhead Extreme". WTF?

There also looks to be a reissue of the first one in the new packaging, with the name "Metal Head Extreme."

Yep, that's it - is that weird, or what?
