Floppy disk WTB: Sega 6-button joypad 1ST GEN (read)

I am looking for a very first generation Sega Genesis 6 button joypad.

This one is different to all others released afterwardss.

I am looking for the standalone version, anything that came with the consoles is probably not first gen, except maybe the very very first batches of Genesis 2.

If in doubt post a picture here.

It's NOT any of these



This one's a fake:


This is not it but it might work, though I can't say because I need to test it.

Notice the shape and compare with the first pic. The first pic seems like they are smaller pads. The "smaller" ones are the common ones. I want it shaped like this one, but the mid button is grey, though, as I said, this one with the red button might operate just like the one I want and might be OK, but I can't tell if I don't touch it.


Sorry for the small picture, but it is this one:



I have one but I want another.

wootz!
thanks.
Oh it's in the US... Shipping to Berlin will be stupid.

I will keep looking on ebay though. But if anyone here has one... Seems like the red button one is teh euro version, I kind of fancy that red button.

Why it would be stupid to ship it to Berlin? Seller has stated that postage is $8.70, really not expensive. I buy often things from states, and the postage is always reasonable.

Because it can be much cheaper from inside Germany.
I just found a Megadrive pad (red button one) for less and in Germany. we'll see how that bid goes.

It is the best pad ever conceived by Man :P
The feel is different to all the others. best response ever .
Sega would not superceed this model ever again, not even with its Saturn joypad.

Try it if you may

I have one for my Genesis/Megadrive as you Brits call it and I love it. Works wonderfully, much better than the 3 button pads which broke everytime you used one.
