:omg: Boy Oh boy!!

Word around the grapevine was that you were up to something big, but i had no idea it was this big!

The "milky blue" controller is the first thing that strikes me. It turns out that this color scheme was actually used for the japanese Ice Blue Gameboy Color!

The more i look at the rest of these prototype colors, the more i see matching similarities from Game Boy COLOR lines from japan. This detail would certainly lend itself to Nintendo's 'chain of command' as you described above.

This is truly amazing!!

As Intendall mentioned, we have been familiar with the handful of shots of the Atomic Purple/Clear prototype console for quite a while.
There was one pic in particular that always stood out, and i'd like to bring some attention to it.

Regardless of who owns this version of the Atomic Purple console now, the pics related to it are older and you can tell in this one above, that it has been cleverly cropped.
It was said that in this pic there were a few prototype consoles, including a 'green' version.

Before any of these new developments emerged, one could only assume that it would have meant that an Extreme Green console was made as well.
If you look at the colors that were released at that time, it really seemed to make sense. Very wishful thinking!
Nevertheless, i think it's safe to say that the green console that was rumored back then would almost have to be the 'dark green' prototype console we now see today thanks to Intendall64.

I found this important to add because given the original origins of all these consoles, i believe they are all equally part of the same story.

Can anyone confirm when the Extreme Green Controller was released, the dates may help to confirm this too!

It was in 1st quarter 1998. That's also when it started showing up in magazines here.
