Default Big Shot/Big Kick - what's the difference?

In the market for a new die-cutting machine and was debating a Big Shot, but then I see a Big Kick. What's the difference, anyone know? I don't think Sizzix even knows the difference because the written descriptions on their website are almost identical! LOL I thought maybe one was a more economical version, but they're the same price at Sizzix.com, too. So what gives? Anyone know the difference?

They are indeed exactly the same machine- its only the colour, as Vics says.

I think there is a slight difference in the handle design in some of the big kick machines.

There is also a Ellison AllStar SuperStar Machine that looks like a Big Shot. Funny that they are so many similar machines.

Big Shot...Sizzix machine for the general market.
Big Kick...Sizzix machine for select stores like Michaels and JoAnn.
Ellison is the line of materials for education field.

Otherwise...variations in shape and color of the plastic case is the extent of the differences.
