As stated previous by several folks... but here is proof. I'm not 100% certain but I think the "Battle Set" was strictly only in the UK. What does the part number say? Or any of the information on the back of the box? That can help us validate if that release is in AUS or UK.

Anoter comment: The Atomic Purple bundle doesn't have any letters next to it. But just in case, the Atomic bundle had a sort of equivalent in AUS called the "Twin Controller Pack" (image below). But I understand this topic was strictly to identify the different consoles and that pack is just a regular console inside ^_^

I will edit the picture and re-upload it soon.
Better do it soon... due to the recent events regarding a certain ex-member of our forums going through and messing with all of his topics/posts, the admins have changed our ability to edit topics. They've limited it to something like a 1 week period after the post - anything after that, you won't have the ability to edit.

I for one, disagree/dislike that implementation. But this is not the right place for me to voice that... just wanted to make sure you are aware.

I updated my website with a little grid of the console variations, did I do any mistakes? Scroll down to the end of 1.1

http://finngamer.webs.com/nintendo64.htm
Finngamer, here are my notes and thoughts:

Consoles (1 mistake, 1 suggestion)
- Why did you have the first row "Charcoal Black" all by itself? It should be on the second line and read "Funtastic Smoke Black/Clear Black/Charcoal Black" all in one. How is the Charcoal Black console (weird AUS release) any different than the other ones?
- I dislike the "Pokémon" row... however I'm not sure what exactly to call it but to a new collector, that naming seems confusing. Maybe add the words "Battle Set/Pokémaniacs" to the end of it or in parenthesis?

Controllers (no mistakes, 1 suggestion)
- I like the way you have the double XX for Gold in the Jap column... not too many people would understand that the first time across :yeah:
- How about switching from an "X" to something new like "!" for the Millennium 2000 and E3 controllers? Then add in the notes: ! = Acquired through giveaway/competition only (the reason is because you technically couldn't "purchase" either of those 2, but anyone was able to buy the NP100 or DK64 like the rest of the retail controllers - even if it was for a limited time through Nintendo Power only)

Charcoal Black is the name of the color of the regular console, I wasn't talking about the AUS Funtastic color. :)
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.

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...
