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?

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.

Just to pick a fight I cannot possibly win with a TRUE expert, how can the ANA count if it was not available at retail? I hear you on the Comboy and think the Playtronic deserves higher consideration for #18 over the ANA because if the Hello Mac has taught us anything, it's that stickers count. :D
