Martin knows, but isn't letting on, so time for a poll!

I think that pink is conspicuous by its absence in the Safari line up, and as we know pink has become a lifestyle choice for some and might sell really well. This would of course exclude a lot of customers, so if/when pink is introduced, there would have to be a corresponding colour for the guys. Pale blue has gone, so this could be turquoise or maybe even a dark battleship grey....... but it would also have to be a colour that looked good with pink on the in-store fixtures. Hmmm.

This is a bit like Mastermind or Clue(do) happyberet.gif

Why not a mix? let the red and the blue plastic pellets flow in the mold without mixing... a weird 2 color!

I voted purple but this time I'd like to see a coloured clip (rather than the usual black or chromed) more than some specific barrel colour...

I wanted to vote purple, but I voted brown because with the new brown studio pen, I think they'd be in a brown mood. Plus, the last couple of pens have been bright--lime, white--so it's time to soften the mood.

I voted brown, but turquoise was a close second.

I'd like to have the whole color range available today in textured finish, like the charcoal.

Looking at the current line up and some of the past limited runs, I'd say we are way overdue for a wild purple of some sort.

purple, pink, brown, turquoise (TURQUOISE, not the pastel-baby-blue one), any of these colors would be great!

...I "think" it will probably go towards pink/purple...

I think they should go with the Vacumatic-style laminated look.

Gooooo chartreuse!

I voted purple, but that may just be wishful thinking on my part since it's my favorite color.

They usually present the new colour at the Paperworld in late January and introduce it in the market in spring.

The coloured clip is a Great idea !

You can put the pink clip on any safari you want... I had a limegreen safari with pink clip few months ago! There are red clips, too...

Oh yeeeeaah! (the Randy Savage reference, that is.)

Brown would not be my preference, but as mentioned earlier seems to make sense with the recent Brown studio.

How do you do the switch? last time I did that, the inner cap is not in the right place any more, and the cap won't close properly!

I agree with Pink, but more of a soft "Breast Cancer Awareness Pink". Seems like every manufacturer is doing this now.
