Alias for Black K-01?

If the yellow K-01 is known as Bumblebee, the black and white as Stormtrooper or Panda, and the blue as Smurf, what is the alias for the black one?

Just wondering. Thanks!

I hope we can have unofficial (or official) aliases for black and the grey one like the Bumblebee, Smurf, and Stormtrooper aka Panda.

Any cool names can you think guys here in the forum? I can't churn out any..

If they re-release it or upgrade it, it can be "Back in Black", but I think Black Rock Shooter works best, if anyone gets the reference!

Generally, it's been referred to as "Classic Black". I lobbied unsuccessfully for "Black Friday" or "Black Friday Black" (because that's the day/sale in the US when the K-01 suddenly went from a failure to a hot item)(that, and I like saying "Black. Friday Black" - like "Bond. James Bond").

That's the first time I've ever seen the silver body called grey. I call mine "Yerp". (Because it was only sold in Europe, and I'm a 'Murican.) For the white body, I prefer "Panda" or "Pandatrooper", because it looks nothing like a curvy white plastic DSLR.

I call my black one "Koi" like the fish. I suppose it would be more fitting in an orange/white scheme, but there are some black Koi and I like the play on K-01.

I'll stop buying black cameras when they make a darker color.

Hmm. "Agent K" (-mount) does have a nice ring to it.
