The Love Edition reminds me of early 90's high end mountain bikes. Ugly! (but I would buy one if it actually existed AND it cost less than the regular version).

I know this is a joke, but I never understood why they abandoned selling entry level models in funky colours. It was a gimmick, and maybe it made them look like toys, but you can bet it sold them a lot of cameras. It is exactly the kind of thing that will sway someone getting their first DSLR, for whom all the specs are just numbers without much meaning. A fun color makes people *want* it on an irrational "I really like that" level. It's the same reason the silver lenses sell for more 2nd hand. People will look for reasons to buy X over Y, if X appeals to their gut. People will pay a bit more for something neat, even if they know rationally that it makes no difference.
I'd not be on this forum if Pentax would not have had the "select body and grip colour" option.
My mum and me both could have a say (she didn't want a black body anyways). Ended up with an orange body and blue grips. It grew on me.

Would have bought a non black K-1 in a heart beat, but now that I've got one..

OMG I would totally buy the hot pink LOVE edition. Not even joking.
And I'd be right behind you. I used to shoot with a red K-30. Loved it!

It's too bad the exterior of the camera is not modular, like Lego pieces that snap on and snap off.

Well, they did try with the K-01, at least the "snap off" part :
