    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Whut the hell be that?

    Oh, and perhaps a Japan only peripheral or something? Maybe the new silver GameCube controllers?(though admittedly that wouldn't make much sense).

    Directly from Nintendo (1-800 parts order line)

    RVL-008

    DOES NOT EXIST

    *placed on hold (awesome Zelda TP opening sequence music) *

    Lines were busy in a separate department, no info

    ---------------

    Long story;

    Called the 1800 parts order line to ask, guy was super cool, I asked him about the RVL-008, explained that fans were creating a database outside Nintendo for all the parts. I asked him what RVL-008 was, because no one could find it on anything. He looked in his database, and couldn't find it, so he asked to place me on hold to contact a different department to see if they could find anything in a different database. After about 15 seconds, he came back on, and told me that all the lines were busy, so he couldn't get through. He then told me that it was either a part that was designed, then left out of the final product, or just something that wasn't released yet.

    Seeing how its 008, and they are up to 026 now, I'm banking on it was a product they had in the Revolution days, but decided to leave out, or wasn't needed.

    So, there's your answer, there is no RVL-008

    RVL-008 could be the Classic controller shell (never relised), Wii Speak, Wii Cue, Or MotionPlus extended jacket?

    Using the rest of what comes after it... an unreleased Coax cable? It fits the pattern.

    Oooh, I got it! It's the cable that was going to be used to connect the Wii up to a computer monitor. This makes perfect sense (taking into account what WildWon said).

    EDIT: DAMNIT, that's the bloody D-Terminal cable [​IMG] Maybe it was a DVD remote instead?

    EDIT: Fun fact, type in RVL-008 in google, and prepare to be amazed.
