Straight from Robotic Empire. If anyone has some time on their hands, fixing this really confusing messing pressing would be awesome. im pretty sure i have rock slide but theres no option for me to choose. and what the hell is rocket pop?

Robo 072 – Torche – Meanderthal 12″ (Released Summer 2008)
The first press was messy for vinyl counting, so we don’t have an accurate count on how many were made. We estimate it as follows (*roughly* 3200 copies total): 1000 picture discs, 800 on black vinyl, 400 on yellow vinyl, 400 on purple vinyl, 350 on white vinyl, 200 on orange vinyl, and 50 blank label test presses (all given to the band and Hydra Head). The second pressing wass more organized, with pressing quantites as follows (2000 copies total): 200 on ice storm, 200 on rockslide, 400 on cherry burst, 400 on lizard skin, 400 on magma and 400 on tapwater. A third press of 230 black vinyl copies were released on 11/08/09. Those first three pressings had the crazy deluxe, mega-fold-out die-cut double-gatefold jacket. Following that, a fourth press was released 06/21/11 of 2000 more copies in a simpler gatefold jacket: 1200 on black vinyl, 200 on silver, 200 on orange-in-orange, 200 on “yolk” (yellow-in-clear), 200 on silver and 200 on “Cuban Flag” red-white-blue tri-blend. Recorded by Kurt Ballou at Godcity. Mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East. Artwork by Juan Montoya and Aaron Turner. CD version on Hydra Head. Jackets printed at Stoughton Press. Vinyl pressed at Pirates Press. Assembly by Hydra Head maniacs for the first press and Robo dawgs for second and third presses.

I have a version that is all black except for small amounts of orange splatter. I thought this was Rockslide? I can't be sure though, anyone have any idea?

Mine is "tapwater" clear. But mine has no runout identifiers as listed above. There is no identifiers on mine, not even an A or B. Does anyone know if this is different press, or just a mistake?
