Ahh, good point - my mistake. Maybe just call it "regular" or "standard black" to clarify? I don't really think Nintendo ever technically coined the normal console as "charcoal" in color.

Wow finngamer I really like how neat those check boxes look on your site. Well done.

Sorry it took me so long to get around to this. I edited the photo and deleted the old one. I think it is good now.

:cussfit: those things look nice. I am really starting to love the red and orange console variations. Might have to set some future goals with those.

I have just edited and updated my first post to include the rarity and images with the box (CIB) for each of the consoles. Hope this is helpful! :yeah: :n64:

Awesome pics Lithium... good stuff. Although I would highly consider watermarking your photos unless you don't mind other people "borrowing" them to use in EBay auctions or other locations? I'm going to be watermarking my better and more official images so they aren't "borrowed" by others...

Agreed. I have already started to do just that but its a slow process.

I reviewing the question raised by a member here about the number of console variants, I came across information suggesting that there was a second release of the Fire Orange and Midnight Blue/Purple consoles that had "some parts in white on the bottom but no[t] the full bottom layer" (as the Clear Blue and Clear Red consoles have). There may be something lost in translation, so I'm thinking the description was of changes to the the BOX and not the CONSOLE . . . does anyone have any information regarding this?

I think they are alluding to some funtastics consoles having white / grey 'feet'

Interesting, I've since scoured the web for comparison pictures, but none to be (easily) found.

I do seem to recall folks saying that some gold consoles were actually jungle green shells painted by Nintendo, so there is possible a pattern here of using leftover parts for later-released N64 consoles.

Well the N64 made different boxed each X years to promote the games on the back of the console. so it makes sense that there are actually multiple box variations of the funtastics.

Also about the funtastics, here there are all in the store. so this high likely means there are all released at the same time.



I Also believe (and I want to convince the collectors that) there are not 16 variations anymore, but 18, counting the ANA and the Comboy those 2 actually looks different. so they count as variations
