Blue K-30 + 18-135WR lens

Is there any way to order the above and get the discounted bundle price ?

I don't want the black version of the K-30 .

I looked at both the black and the blue camera on our site and don't see an offer for a discount with the lens. My email is in my sig, below. Let me know if I've overlooked something.

Henry- the 18-135mm lens is normally $529, but when bundled with the black K-30 (body-only price: $849), the price of the lens works out to be $349. Here's the listing for this bundle:
Pentax K30 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens Kit (Black) 15635

The member is asking whether or not the black camera in this kit can be substituted for a blue one, at the same price and together with the lens, seeing that the black body costs just as much as the blue.

Adam -- thanks. I'm a little slow today it seems. The K30 + 18~135 lens kit is a one-box package marketed by Pentax (their Cat#: 15635). If this was something we'd assembled the swap would be simple, but what we'd need to do is sell two a la carte items (the blue camera and the lens) for what is in effect a $110.00 discount. I'll ask our buyer, but frankly I'm not confident.

The K-30 body only (any color) is $849.95 . Pentax K-30 Digital Camera (Body Only) (Blue) 15698 B&H Photo
The 18-135 WR lens is $529.95 . Pentax SMC DA 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 ED AL (IF) DC WR Lens 21977 B&H

The Black K-30 with 18-135 WR lens is $1199.95 . Pentax K30 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens Kit (Black) 15635

So the discount for the K-30 + 18-135 bundle is $849.95 + $529.95 - $1199.95 = $179.95 . Not $110.00 .

I just want this bundle with the blue body instead of black. I understand this isn't a kit you put together. Just hoping there is a way to make it work. Otherwise I will buy the body only.

I take it the silence means there is no way to do this I have a pending order for the K30 blue body only. Wish I could get the 18-135WR lens too. I guess I will buy a used one later.

My apologies. There is not. If this had been an outfit we'd assembled from a la carte components it'd have been simpler.
