Black Colored Game Boy Advance?

I remember a thread saying that a store was selling Black Gameboy Advance consoles during the Thanksgiving holiday as a limited edition exclusive. I'm planning to get a GBA with some Christmas money, and I'd like to get a black one to match my Cube. I tried finding the thread but it didn't turn up. Does anyone know where I can get a black GBA?

I still see them advertised in Christmas Toys R Us ads, so it would be worth checking in-store.

Thanks for the help, I just picked up a Black GBA today after searching a couple of Toys R Us. Mine was 69.99 plus tax and no game included. I guess now I want to go pick up a game or two, does anyone know some good deals (9.99). I saw Castlevania Circle of the Moon for 9.99 in another thread, does anyone know any other games that are worth getting that are this low in price? Any RPG would be good too, considering I've owned a N64 and a Cube, I haven't played a good RPG in years.

Circle of the Moon is an excellent buy at 10 bucks. Others that are worth considering, provided you like old skool games, are the Namco Museum and Pac Man Collection for $9.99 each at Kay-Bee.

As for a RPG recommendation, try Golden Sun. It is one of the better, if not the best, RPG titles for GBA.

Actually.. I would really like a SOLID pink one, like my old Gameboy color.. I really do not like these transparent cases.

I wanted a black one, but they weren't available when I bought mine (about 6 months ago). So I bought an indigo one. Either way, I really don't even use the darn thing.
