Green Samurai Ranger/Shurikenger's changing shade of Green

UPDATED 7/28/14
Picture above is from FuryDiamond at Megaforce Cast and it was taken at the San Diego Comic Con 2014. The Green Samurai Ranger (Ninja Storm) is a lighter shade of green than the other green keys. I lighten up the pic a bit but FuryDiamond confirms it is lighter shade.

Above is an advertisement from 2011 of Ranger Keys for Gokaiger in Japan. The Shurikenger (Green Samurai Ranger) key is a darker and more muted shade than Dragonranger (Mighty Morphin Green Ranger).

Here are Japanese pictures of the Shurikenger key which I do not own. Some are dark and the one to the left is lighter shade. By all accounts, fans have had no problem with this shade. I am not sure if it matches with other green keys.

Above pic at left is a Ranger Key picture from of Shurikenger Ranger Key and it indeed is lighter. The above pic at right is from, it is from the Ranger Key app. It is indeed a lighter shade than the other green keys. It is the same shade as the Dice-O illustration. They might be following this color.

But the show props are the same shade. This is from a Gokaiger Ranger Key book.

Remember when I thought this green thing in the treasure box at SDCC 2013 was Camille?

Well it must have been Green Samurai Ranger by the color shade!
