Anyone interested in Antimatter Blue would prolly wanna see this. It is wicked cool, but very, very dark. Black most of the time with like a celestial blue twinkle (in the close-ups you can see this) ...also the reflection of the chrome handle in the door. Looks like the Milky Way lol.

That does look dark, but like others have said, its hard to capture Anitmatter Blue in pictures, same for Magma Red. Can't wait to see one of these in person soon!

Great set of pics !!!!! Really shows the color shift. I just like how every one says boy it's dark !! and I think to myself yeah it depends on where you are looking. For example if you look at the second pic, it is black on the rear bed side and yet the front fender is light blue. so yeah it's dark in the back but the front looks light blue , to me anyway. I guess AMB is a lot like Black, either you like it or you don't. I know a lot of people who can't stand a black vehicle but me on the other hand I love black vehicles, therefore AMB is a hit for me. I am going to bookmark your post so every time some one posts another AMB thread to go along with the 10 other AMB threads I can just pull it up and post it. :ROFLMAO: Sorry if I sound like I'm ranting, not intended that way. Thanks for posting.

Thing to keep in mind is that the pics are in just about the perfect lighting and it's still dark.

I think that's the issue most people have. I was set on AMB, but not anymore. Don't live out west with nice sunny days most of the year. So here on the East Coast that's just going to look black 95% of the time.

I think it would have been perfect if it was a few shades lighter so you saw the blue more often, just my opinion.

Could be your camera, as the exposures do look a little hot, but the blue doesn’t appear as deep and vivid in the highlights as the 4Runner. It looks more muted like the lux cars in the thread. How was it to your eye?

I get 'ya. I'm from PA so we don't get a lot days with clear blue skies here either but when it is, AMB will look awesome and I can hear people now " I thought you bought a black one" :ROFLMAO: . I love sunrise and sunset every day but I don't get to see them every day either. As I stated, I love black vehicles, so it doesn't bother me that it will be black or dark blue most of the time because when it pops it really POPS !! Not everyone shares the same view as me. I am different more than most. When I was a youngin' my dad always said to me "God broke the mold after he made you" :ROFLMAO: back then I never thought about what he meant but now a days I see it what he meant all the time.

I really want to love AMB... like REALLY! It’s just a bit too dark. I like the black/blue transition, but it need to be more even than it appears. I’m gonna hold out hope that it looks different if/when i can look at it in person. I can’t order this color off what info I currently have.

I really like what im seeing so far from Antimatter. Its definitely unique. I love unique. I like the name and what it means and I love how the flake pops blue, green and gold in the sunlight like distant stars glimmering in the night sky. But it is super dark.

The one thing thats making me cautious is dealing with the upkeep. Im super OCD when it comes to swirl markes and scratches. I had a Black Camaro SS that was awesome. After a year the swirl markes and scratches drove me crazy so I sold it. And I washed it the correct way and air dryed it. Still didn't matter.

I tell myself this is different because its an Off Road vehicle and is supposed to have scratches. But at the same time if I can have a paint that hits them better well then that would be better.

This is an even harder decision because Ford didn't give us many color options that I like. If I don't go with Antimatter then I'm going with Velocity Blue. If its not a late availability.

Importance of OBX / painted flares with AMB -- AMB needs as many painted contours as possible to catch blue pops...See fenders in the OBX below. Imagine if this were AMB. Similar light direction as the AMB photo above. You have a few pops of color, the A pillar, ridge of the hood, and front corner of the fender. Painted flares adds two more pops.
