Looks like a child just ate some playdough and then threw it up all over the camera.

Haha. Hey, to each his own. One very similar (special Japanese robot edition or something like that) sold on Ebay for ~$1,500.

Some people have too much money and too little taste, but who am I to judge.

I really liked the concept of the korejanai K-x, but this is, well, visually obscene. Can't they do a camo mish-mash?!

completely unrelated, Blaze - I just put a 16" decepticons logo decal on the rear skylight of my honda element, it is bad a$$!

My first reaction was one of horror. It looks like some kindergarden toy.

Pentax JP must be on LSD or something.

But that colour scheme could grow on you, I guess. Pentax are certainly teaching us not to be stuffy and conservative about our cameras.

16"? That is bad a$$. I had one on my honda civic way back in the day but it was only about 4" (I have since upgraded to an Infiniti G35 and NOTHING will ever touch the outside of that car)

Transformers and GI Joe are hands down the best cartoon/toys ever created by man, and that's not an opinion.

This might be part of their new marketing scheme, to allow users to select each color of each part of their camera.

The color is ugly but like they say in Marketing. Anyway , this is easy for them to do because all these part are made from Plastic and they use injection molding to make these part
At least they talk about Pentax and this advertising is free. This is also a maeketing scoop for Tower

I want one primarily because I can't decide what color Kx I want. This way I won't have to decide. And it certainly won't be confused with anyone else's camera.

If people have conciously purchased Pontiac Aztec, some of them should be fine with these colors.
