    Actually, at least one was found that I know of. The dude received a framed golden vinyl with his name inscribed on it.

    Got mine today!! Just took a photo with all together.

    The purple credits card does have a VERY faint NIN logo on the back, can barely even see it in good lighting, at least with my kitchen lights anyway.

    I really dig mine, kind glad my credits aren't landscape, but disappointed my credits card shows no sign of halo 29. I've looked "so hard... so long..." but it's not on mine.

    All and all, I got a pretty good selection of card variants. The only thing I would change would be to get the white-text-on-blue title card and the blue-text-on-red She's Gone lyrics. Hell, anyone want to trade me for them, give me a PM. Though I doubt anyone would actually want the versions of them I have.

    By the way, I put the entire thing in that frame. Cheap grocery store frame, but it works. And you can clean the cards off pretty well with paper towels.
    I'd prob trade she's gone away cards with you if we're ever around each other. You get to the twin cities much? I see your in Madison. My brother went to school there and his family in law is in Oshkosh.

    there's my whole set of pictures (which my wife patiently took while i carefully opened and inspected everything with rubber gloves). of course we listened to the EP (again) while going through the process. it was really fun.

    of note:
    - i could not see the NIN logo or halo designation anywhere, but it's possible it might be there in better lighting
    - i got an extra "the idea of you" page...which is pretty freakin' cool
    - i think this is one of the coolest ideas to accompany music that i've seen in a while, and i can't wait to get frames

    My component came in today. It had a sticker that said "do not open this will make a mess". My dad insisted to open it. Fuck it, why not. I thought nah, it's probably a gimmick. Nope. No gimmick. Whatever the black envelope is/was made of got all over our hands and kitchen counter.

    I really have no words to describe what I think of this 'physical component' but what the fuck?

    Please forgive the unartistic display, but here are my NTAE cards:



    The back of the credits card has the NIN HALO TWENTYNINE, but it's nearly impossible to discern:



    I'm very pleased with the overall set, but I'm not into the Red "She's Gone" card (it's so hard on my eyes).

    Working on putting up some 1600 dpi scans of two different sets, but my scanner is slow and kind of shitty...

I'd especially like to get some good images of the backs of these sheets; there are some fun details in there. Seemingly left-over impressions from other prints, etc... I seem to have a different set of impressions on the back of my credits card, for instance (and I don't seem to have the NIN logo or halo designation on mine, too).

    Anyway, enjoy! I'll be keeping tabs on this thread (and the other NTAE thread), and updating as more images are posted.
    Also, my horizontal credits page DOES have a logo on the back, but it's ridiculously hard to make out.

    Last night I updated my variations index page (at http://apocalyptech.com/ntae/ ) with links to all the sources for the images, btw, so I feel a bit better about that. I also realized that there's probably no reason not to just throw that thing up on Github, so if you wanted your own local mirror of all that (including the script which generates the HTML), feel free to grab it over here: https://github.com/apocalyptech/ntae

    I'd happily accept pull requests, of course, though I'll be continuing to monitor this (and other) threads for more images, so definitely don't feel compelled to do so if it's not something you'd naturally do anyway.

    Those aren't viewable by someone without a Facebook account, btw (or possibly without being Friended or whatever the hell Facebook does). Would you mind either changing the permissions on that set, or uploading 'em elsewhere as well? Thx!

    I guess TR now collects every Physical Component owner's prints via these scans. Welcome to Year Zero.

    Thank you @xolotl for compiling all the images to catalog the variants! Does anyone remember seeing a print run for the Physical Component?

    For simplicity, I'm going to speculate that Black on White is the main version (save for "She's Gone Away") & the other colors are secondary:

    Transparency

    NTAE_01
    a. White card/Black text
    b. Blue card/Black text
    c. red splotches

    NTAE_02
    a. White card/Black text
    b. Black card/White text
    c. Green card/Black text

    NTAE_03
    a. Black card/White text
    b. Red card/Blue text

    NTAE_04
    a. White card/Black text
    b. Grey card/Black text (slightly different text layout)
    c. Blue card/Red text

    NTAE_05
    a. White card/Black text
    b. White card/Multicolor text
    c. Black card/Pink text

    Credits
    a. White card/Black text
    b. Blue card/White text
    c. Black card/White text (landscape)

    I'm guessing there are 3 random variants and we've yet to see the third version for "She's Gone Away."

    There are two black on white versions of "The Idea of You" with different font arrays, so I think that's all three. And there's a version of "Branches/Bones" with red splotches instead of black. "She's Gone Away" is the only one that hasn't had a third yet.

    i got this variation. didn't take pictures, just wanted to clean up. i'm really happy with it, feels totally worth $12 and then some. that said, i put it back in the plastic sleeve and i have no intention of opening it again.

    this whole thing makes me very excited for whatever might come. maybe nothing, but still ...

    This thread seemed to be the right place to mention this particular thought concerning the physical component's black dust or powder. Anyway, I was just wondering if it's actually corn starch colored black. It also made me wonder if they're to represent the ashes of all the songs with fire and burning references in them as the remains of the idea of him.

    Aside from that, I'm just thankful that I have been very much fulfilled upon receiving it, as it'll give me another way to enjoy Not The Actual Events in its entirety. As much as I still enjoy looking through CD cases and booklets, this certainly is yet another creative and brand new experience for me that I definitely appreciate. I also didn't mind the delays that much because I got used to things being postponed or simply not happening whenever it came to Nine Inch Nails, which as a result lead me to be very patient and accepting with whatever Trent Reznor does or doesn't do no matter how many times he might openly suggest or merely hint at any type of prospective release or tour.

    I'm also pretty big on the whole "I'll only believe it when I actually see it." approach to such things, so it still gives me yet another reason to be thankful and appreciative, as I saw, touched and believed.

    I suppose you can say that my faith and devotion to NIN is still going strong. I also thought to myself, with all the times I bought multiple NIN albums as presents, what's $12.00 without the physical component?

    But again, it is quite a relief and pleasant surprise to have it, as I also enjoy the visual aspects of music, with further proof of the money being well spent, whether they be videos or album art even if I tend to block out images and videos from time to time while listening to music.

    Yeah, I'd noticed that there seemed to be more than one font layout for The Idea of You, even though they otherwise superficially look quite similar. I hadn't yet looked closely enough to find out if it really was just two distinct versions or not; I'll probably end up splitting up my summary page to reflect that once I have a bit of time.

    Edit: I wonder if there's a third variant for She's Gone Away but the difference is on the back of the card, not the front. We don't have nearly as many pics/scans of those yet...

    has anyone besides me gotten any extra pages? i'm certain it was just that the two pages were stuck together but i also think it's pretty awesome that i ended up with a variation like that.

    I haven't received mine yet, as I live outside the continental U.S. Will these things fit inside the NTAE LP jacket once it arrives?

    They might make it a bit bulky and, you know, covered in fine, black powder, but, yeah, they should fit. They are just over 6 by 9 inches each

    @xolotl


    I'm pretty sure that there are two different variations of the green card stock for "Dear World"
    From what I've seen, some are bright green and some are dull green. Of course, I'm aware that different cammeras and or different backgrounds might affect the "green", however comparing the photos people have put up and comparing the white, blue, black, purple, etc within the same picture... I'm fairly certain that there are two different "greens". One is bright, and one is dull. The bright green is already documented. Here's an example of the dull green: http://www.pictaram.club/share/BRIyp4vlfXj

    Here's my version, back and front :



    Close up here : https://imgur.com/a/nXuK3

    There is a new line of lyrics in the second verse of The Idea of You :

    GO BACK TO THAT IDEA
    CAN YOU HEAR ME OVER HERE?
    (TLEF UOY) YOU FEEL IT HAPPENING?

    It's strange, because this line can't be heard in the song, it's not on NINwiki but we can find a variation of it on other lyrics sites like : http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/ninei...ideaofyou.html

    This last variation ("Can't you feel it happening?") is also on other versions of the Physical Component.
