I'm just wondering, what do you think of the color red used on the side rails and legs on ST Premium?
I have had a Pro in the past and loved the black powder coating, but there is something about the red I am not sure if I am going to like or not.
Oddly, I love the Ruby Red coloring on WOZ.
What are you thoughts?

Love the blue , blacks ok, too me red looks out of place..... Buy a pro.

I have a premium and I love the red color and I also think that the game play of the premium/LE is worth the extra coin. So for me it is a win win. Whichever you chose, the Aurich artwork package is a must!

I don't think there's enough red in the cabinet art of the Pro for it to look right. I'd do it in blue.

Are you kidding! The cherry red and the cabinet is the reason i sold my pro for the premiun.

The red on the premium is perfect. I am not a fan of the color "red", but the version of red used has so much more depth than a typical ACDC armor red. It really blows away the LE in that aspect.

Love the Red

It's a candy apple red and I think it's one of sterns nicest colors they have made. I don't like red on a machine and this is no red.

I always thought it was spectacular. The thing I missed most when I traded down to the Pro. But liking colours is certainly a very subjective thing. I can't say that what I like is best..just worked for me. But fcking spectacularly so.

Trivia note:

The metallic red armor used on ST Premium is the exact same shade used on TFLE Autobots.

It also looks absolutely killer on an XMen Magento (my brother did this mod on his)...

Not a fan for it on ST. Just doesnt look right in person. However, here's a disclaimer: When i finally saw it in person it was after owning an LE for 2 years. So in mind, the LE is how it should look and the red just looks funky and out of place. I don't own the LE anymore, so no biased comments - the red is just straight up ugly on ST.

I agree, the red just doesn't compare to the LE's blue.

People hated the red when it was revealed, then some people said the red looks better in person. It's definitely not for me...
