Hah, you just missed the "New Wave Band" which was a green wash with pink splash, here on Mass Drop. Mark is cool, I love his style, and respect his decisions (and he's right, he mentions in a youtube video that the nickel plating adds a certain weight and feel distinctly different, and better, than ano).
That being said, OneDrop is a company that has to cater to its customers. Mark got his throw designed and made, with the greatest respect, he can cope with a couple colorway releases he didn't pick. He did a great job designing this throw, and if making wild colorways gets it into more players hands (the ones who greatly prefer loud splashes), then I'm all for it.
