I hear Pentax released this limited edition of one of their latest DSLRs which was based on a robot, and it was colorful...

Ok I found it.

On the plus side, doubt anybody (except a 14 year old girl) would wanna steal it.

These cameras are all targeted at the domestic Japanese market...

Teenage girls are marketed at the Japanese market from the cartoons I've seen.

I guarantee that this camera make you feel.... very "different", even before you take your first shot. Too bad they don't make a matching white hood...oh that would defeat the purpose wouldn't it?

im hoping its homemade, it would be a shame if they went through all of that and left the dial black.... anyway im sure that my daughter would love it in 13 years or so!!

Nope. That is the way they come (minus the bling). This is the US market. Photos from B&H

I think the white camera is actually pretty cool. I wouldn't mind a white 5DII. :)
