I've got "Battle of the Stars" in my collection. It's not very common, but not that rare either. The Esselte Video tape, however, is not something you see every day.
Isn't it the other way round?

"Slaget om Kosmos" = Anno zero - Guerra nello spazio
"Battle of the Stars" = Battaglie negli spazi stellari
I'm quite sure I got the original titles correct. But I must admit that it's pretty confusing keeping track of which Italian space action movie is which, since most have similar plots, the same actors, re-cycled cuts, re-cycled locations and backdrops, etc.

It's very confusing.

Translation:

Battaglie negli spazi stellari = Battle of the Stars

Planeternes Krig / Slaget om Kosmos = War of the Planets

But the releases are:

War of the Planets = Battle of the Stars

Battle of the Stars = Planeternes Krig / Slaget om Kosmos

Well, I'm not sure at all, but check the alternative titles on IMDb;

Battaglie negli spazi stellari - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075881/rel ... dt_dt#akas
Anno zero - Guerra nello spazio - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0149677/rel ... dt_dt#akas

Also, check this video compilation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6cefqmHaV8

Confusing, to say the least.

Diabolik (HJ) would know.

Yes, If Finland counts. List of Al's movies released in Finland on VHS.
If a movie was released in Sweden and Denmark, it was usually released in Finland too.
