Are these still with no white color? If so, I wouldn't be interested in either style. But, if they have white, I think the original 7800 style with color for the black & white releases would be worthwhile as well as the '84 style. :-)
I really wish I could print the color white, but I can't at this time. That's very difficult to do without commercial off-set printing equipment. Even without the white color these labels still look quite good IMO:
I have been able to play around with contrast and shading to better approximate the look of white being in label even though it isn't there.
There's always the possibility I could print these on standard white label stock (then you would have the white color and they would be cheaper to produce), but then you would loose that metallic look. The labels would just be grey in color. I really think the metallic label looks a lot better then trying to imitate the foil with just grey ink. That's my two cents.
