My ASCII Pad 64 Collection; Different colors and comparisons

I found the listing on eBay and asked cabanon for his advice. I don't think there is any way it is a light effect. I do not see how the dark blue metallic could ever look this bright. It could definitely be a 16th color variant. Either way I am not willing to spend $130 to find out but if anyone else wants to then do it and let us know! It is fishy because there are 4 listings of the controller with the exact same picture, 3 listings are by one seller and the other is by a different seller with the exact same picture. Not only that but they all ship from Germany and they are also all different prices, some with $60 shipping. Seems fishy. Opinions?

Ok but even the mint one dan posted looks lighter than the metallic blue i have. The dark navy blue i have would never look as light as either of those I don't think. Is that a completely different metallic blue??

This is my metallic blue pad. Clearly it is a much darker blue than the one above. I think we may have a 16th color.
Here's another. Posted Image

Well, that is definately not a Metallic Blue controller you have.
It is either the 'Black Metallic' or something else.
I cannot tell!
It's not the metallic black. It's definitely a dark blue. I actually have 2 of them if anyone has an extra of this lighter metallic blue they want to trade.
You can see here that it is clearly not black.

I can confirm that I have this one too. blueish, greenish, blackish tint. very weird.
So the other one is definitely a different metallic blue. That ups the total ascii controller count to 16. Can one of the admins make some sort of announcement?

We need to figure out if there is a difference between this controller, and the Black Metallic.

Look at the JAN list on this thread. Could this controller be the 'GuriMetto' controller? (Green Metal)
It could be that for sure. This is definitely not black. It's definitely a different color. Hold on I'll post a pic
Posted Image this is clearly a different color
I think it's safe to say we can up the count to 16

easier said then done. some people here have tried to contact ASCII without success over the last years, sadly.
Oh I never said it would be easy. I know i have tried contacting the company that used to be ascii with no success
