I have the pink and would rather have the green.
All I'm finding so far is the pink version. I've found the Swim Venus at B&N and a few different Kmarts and all of them have the pink versions.....no green in sight here. I'm gonna keep a pink one and keep watching for the green version to show up.
This reminds me of back in '98 when the Barbie X-Files doll set came out. As soon as it hit the shelves, I was buying it for my daughter. On the very 1st ones, the Scully(Barbie) doll had plain shoulder length straight hair. Not long after, they came out with an updated version that had the hair poofier and curled in around the bottom. It was a MUCH better look and much more resembled Agent Scully. I think the official word was that only around 15% or less of the total production of that set had the hairstyle that I got in the early issue version. So is it valuable?......not so much. Why would someone pay more for a variation doll that looks worse than the standard? Based on this experience, I'm not getting too excited about the variation Venus doll....LOL.
Well..I don't actually think the first Venus looks worse than the standard with the green makeup. I think the makeup 'pops' more; the disappointment was more because the it was a screening that was used before, not that it was ugly. At least not to me. I was going to sell my SC Venus but I think I'll hang on to her..even if her price never goes up she might be good for a trade later.
My B & N had the original make-up on their Swim Venus' :(. But they did have the new GA Frankie variation, and Target had both the new and old GA Frankie on the shelf, was nice to compare them at the same time.
My B&N doesn't have any of these. If someone can find me a green eye shadow'd Venus, I could paypal for her. Please and thanks?

I checked out my local B & N to see if I'd find Swim Venus with the Green Eye Shadow and I did find her. All the other stores have Swim Venus but with Pink Eye Shadow. Pretty weird though I gotta admit that I like both versions ^-^
The only difference that I found in both is the eye shadow color obviously but as well as in the serial number stamp on the back of the boxes. The Green Shadow Venus ends with HF2 and the Pink Shadow Venus ends with HF1. (Not sure if that means something) Other than that both boxes are identical.
I was very happy to find one Venus at Barnes&Noble tonight and even happier to discover that she had the green eyeshadow.
LOL! I've seen both together at kmart but didn't buy them, I think the one on the right is long gone form stores.
Thanks a lot of people wanted to see
