5 Nintendo 64 Prototypes colours discovered!

Instagram user that goes by the name @Retro_Hoarder  found one amazing lot of not 1, but 5 Nintendo 64 Prototype consoles and controllers! Below is the story he wants to share with us:


It’s probably best if I give provide the back story on why these prototypes were made and where they came from. The prototype consoles, as well as the Clear White/Atomic Purple console you have all seen, originally came from Nintendo of Europe, based in Germany. Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo of America are allowed to operate freely and try new things with all final decisions made by Nintendo Company Limited based in Japan (at least this was the case at the time). NoE created these prototypes as part of a colour survey before the Funtastic range was released. The marketing department conducted the survey and the colours that were deemed to work best together, as a set, became the Funstastic series we know and love today. As these prototypes are fully working (I’ve tested them all) they weren’t immediately destroyed but instead were used in the marketing department as ‘working’ consoles and used to take screen shots, test games, etc. and just generally used for day to day work. Towards the end of the N64 lifespan this marketing team was absorbed by another department and at that time the prototypes were either destroyed or in some cases, like this, saved by the employees who used to work on them! This is really interesting as my friend doesn’t know the numbers that were originally made or how many were saved in total (Not many though). My friend knew of the Clear White/Atomic Purple and also knows of 2 other consoles that were definitely saved; the Clear White and also Clear Milky Blue to go with the controllers I purchased.
