I was going to screen grab this too. It gives a good look at the colors side by side and I wouldn't mind some more pics of these. Area 51 looks like it is becoming my final choice. I am surprised they would show velocity blue here and not antimatter... unless that is antimatter and velocity is even lighter because that blue looks like the blue on the website to me for antimatter

Velocity Blue wasn’t even in the running for me until this. I want to know how late “late availability” really is. Might be something worth waiting for as long as it’s not too long.

If that is antimatter blue then I no longer know what to think of that color. Looks almost black in some photos and then looks almost like velocity blue in this one.

I thought I had narrowed the debate down to two colors, Cactus and A51; now I'm back to square 1. Rapid Red has got me questioning everything I've ever said about not liking red cars.....

Yea, I'm not sure what it is - but if velocity blue is even lighter and more bold I think that's a positive; especially if it means that antimatter is such a dynamic color based on lighting.

That is almost certainly Velocity Blue.

It looks like these were sprayed without the metalflake (look at how different Area 51 and Cyber Orange appear here), and Anitmatter Blue without the flake is essentially black.

Race Red hasn't gotten a lot of love on the forum...but it fits this kind of fun vehicle. Body-color top might be a bit much....but Race Red shouts loud enough to distract from the MIC grey top.

My guess is VB is the missing color here

My gut said that’s velocity. But zoom in on how dark the side of the tank is. It’s almost black. Which makes me think maybe it is antimatter (it is near black in the shade)

All the tanks are seemingly spaced and the other colors are not nearly as dark on the sides of the tank. Look at silver and cyber for example.

I went to my bronco spank bank and found this. Shade/sun antimatter. Guess it’s antimatter?

Unless I’m trying to rationalize why they would have all 10 colors including antimatter but excluding velocity since its a late add. It would be odd to swap antimatter with velocity.

If these are actual paint samples maybe they can ship these around to dealers so we can at least see real world paint samples in different lighting.
