Ok let's see:

First of all we have to clarify what a box variation is.
For Example: For me this japanese charcoal and this one are 2 different box variations.

So we either have to make 2 lists or agree that slight differences don't count. Personally I think they do count. And I think you do to because you added the Brazil Clear Black (Smoke)

This being said you are missing out on:

- The above example
- The Japanese Midnight Blue
- There is a North American Pokemon/Pikachu Version from Toys R Us that you mentioned, but there is also this version without the gadgets.
- The 5 Other Brazil Funtastics (Anis, Tangerina, Kiwi, Cereja and Uva) You mentioned Jabuticava

Maybe I can find more. That's it for now. Nice Topic.

No it is not a Sticker, it's printed on. Actually this version is very unique and special. It is the first version of all N64 consoles ever to come out from June 1996.

The big success of the first Pokemon games that came out end of february 1996 (red and green) led to the marketing decision to release the new console (N64) with rare Pokemon playing cards. There was THIS set of Pokemon Cards included. If you look closely you can see them on the white circle print. Later the next box prints did not have the cards anymore.

Getting the console with the white print is therefore pretty easy,it's all over the place if you pay attention to it, getting the cards that were delivered with it in mint or new condition on the other hand is a f***ing pain.

This is also another box variation. It seems that in Italy a company called "GiG Electronics" had its own distributor rights to N64. Their logo is on all of the boxed hardware (Controllers etc.) and the console: Therefore it's a diffrent variation

As far as I am concerned only official releases count. Technically it is a variation 1. It didn't come in a box, and this topic is about box variations and 2. It's a prototype I wouldn't count.

This might be a little much to ask. But maybe we can even find out to which regions or countries the different packs were exclusive to? I'm going to start some research on this now.

This normal Scandinavian Charcoal should qualify for another variation. It has the same Mario sticker on it as the DK Version, but it's a normal charcoal.

Somehow I believe that Nintendo Scandinavia was a little less conservative as of how to pack these. Include a Mario game here and there, or put overstock consoles into battle Sets as seen here

However, really nice finds danilochka and thanks for the background information, the sticker system makes a lot more sense to me now.
137! That's pretty insane

At this point I wouldn't even be surprised if we crack the 150 some day, but I don't want to tempt faith.
I really love the new layout, looks awesome.

Arrrghh! You beat me to posting this :D I was just going to report it.
I think this is a great find and as you mentioned somewhat more of a proof that all 7 must exist. Exiting news :)

I didn't think it would ever arrive and got a little worried it may be a scam, but after 2 weeks it finally did.

A few noticeable things:
1. The box is gigantic - I was not able to compare it to a original just yet but it is certainly one of the biggest boxes
2. The box is a Top Opener - Similar to the Japanese Versions it just lifts. I actually do not know a single EU Variant until now that has that.
3. The Ball is the one from 1994, that means the ball on the picture is a different one...I'm pretty sure it is the original one that came with it though
4. The Mario Game advertised on the Cover is not included, maybe lost.
5. There is also no Styrofoam. I am almost certain it was lost over the years. Can't imagine it came without any support in the box.
6. No signs of a pin or any additional gadgets.

Here the pics I took. Enjoy:

Here are 2 close-ups. If you click onto my photobucket you can enlarge the pics with the magnefine glass top right to see everything clearly.

At this point I could imagine that it may have been a event of some sort, that would explain other Nintendo World Cup live merchandise like the pin, although it is not advertised on the box.

I have to say that I can't make my self a Rhyme of this jungle green set? Maybe sealed by the store? But that oval Sticker on the front looks pretty official to me

The titel of the poster says: "The Yoshi's are in football (soccer) fever - The Gameplan for the world championship 1998"
After that are all the team brackets of the qualifying nations, that were determined by lottery. The second half of the poster are: quarter finals, semi-finals, final

You are menat to pencil in the results yourselve. It's a interesting find, as it uses the same logo as on the Portugal World Cup Bundle. The Yoshi part I can't really figure out. Maybe just Promotion without a actual merch or console item.
