    Light Blue Silencer - Opinions on the Color?

    I am particularly interested in what folks who have pulled the trigger think about this color in "real life". I keep looking at this one and thinking, thinking, thinking....

    I LIKEY the color. In some pictures, the resin seems a bit muddy though. Im hoping for this one. My last check on my collection proves that it needs a bit more color to balance out all the black.

    Plus, the Silencer is one Ive been wanting as well.

    Thumbs Down Re: Light Blue Silencer - Opinions on the Color?

    I find pale blue just looks plain wrong on this model, or any G for that matter, but especially the Silencer...

    ...thumbs down from me, but I haven't seen one in person.

    Re: Light Blue Silencer - Opinions on the Color?

    It does look better in person, but it's sort of an odd color. I tried to convey the color in the video review, but even that really doesn't do it.

    I can only describe it as a mix of light blue and light gray. I'm not sure what to compare it to. Most photos make it out to be more of a baby blue, but that doesn't seem right to me in person. I'm not very good at describing colors though I guess.

    It's been growing on me, but I don't think it would ever be my favorite color or anything.

    That is how I would expect to react. But it is a Silencer!!! And there hasn't been a new one in what feels like eons...

    I think the color is ok from what I have seen, but if you tire of it, you could always dye it black which would look great! Would be worth getting if you could get it at a great price, Appears to be a semi-flat looking resin, so the dye would take nicely.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    When are they going to bring out an updated Silencer?

    Yep, Silencers don't come out very often and they seem to become very hard to find after they sell out. Go for it if you don't want any regrets.

    I wish I knew too. It would be great just to get some confirmation that they are planning a new one.

    Wink Re: Light Blue Silencer - Opinions on the Color?

    From Riley's description of the color, I immediately think "Decca" record label again. I know my parents had old 7" records in all kinds of blue/gray tones labels. This looks like a light tone, that was used for instance by labels like Decca (Rolling Stones). You might call that quite a vintage color.

    Cheers,

    Good question. I'm thinking it will be a highly anticipated one, just like the updated atomic Frog.
