Hey nation, i heard that there was ONE green team edition-like bvm it supposedly "dissapeared" and im trying to hunt it down, just looking for information. if you have any, let me know.



thanks
Seth

Update: all i know so far is ~ there is only one possibly two of these made, one was last seen in Ontario Canada, the other has no sightings if it even exists, trevlor and sebby have the peak versions, thats all i know so far.

I thought there were 6 SB protos:
2 raw
2 blue/brown
2 green/brown

Why do I think that?

The pre production prototype BvMs are a lot heavier (71-72g), have a different profile, a smaller nipple and are small bearing.  I messed up the density calc somehow in proe.  They are more highwalled sort of like the Peak and YYJ yoyos.  We had to shave off some weight so that's when we sunk the curved profile all the way to the silicone groove.  Fortunately this gave them a better look/play and was something Boyd really loved.  There were only 6 made.  I have a raw one.  I think I gave the other raw one to Boyd??  And the rest were anodized, 3 were gifted and one was sold.  2 brown w/ blue splash and 2 green w/ blue splash.  The green ones are floating around somewhere??  Phatt's photo shows the profile best.  There are also some regular raw BvMs floating around.  Not many though.  I'd say these small bearing ones are the only prototypes.  The rest were all prety much the same height.  The AYYA release and up is finally the intended weight and stability.  Pip Pip.

so I was right. Yay! I think Chris has one,Boyd has one, and Sebby has one
