    Looks like the next yellow in the series will positively phosphoresce! (That will be next year, right?)

    Hoping for a dark purple or bright lilac but Lamy will probably give us a phosphorescent orange or tangerine.

    I have been waiting years for purple, and I'm not holding my breath. But I think Lamy did orange recently. At least, I have one.

    I also hope Lamy considers reissuing some of the popular ones from way back. The secondary market has gone nuts for them; Lamy should benefit from some of that enthusiasm, as well as give new buyers a chance to get them.

    $710 = Regular safari, tin of camo paint, and money left over for... oh so many wondrous things!

    I just got the neon yellow Safari, as well as the Al-Star in black, from Cultpens. As an aside, I am very happy with their prices and quick shipping in this my first transaction.

    I have to admit, I like the color more than I thought. It is incredibly bright, so I probably won't use it, but it's kind of fun. It would be great for a purse or a backpack, because you would surely always find it. Also, in an office setting, because no one could get away with "borrowing" it.

    The Neon Yellow Safari would be good pen to designate as a fountainpen highlighter with a 1.5 or 1.9 italic and a highlighter ink - maybe Noodler's Firefly or Sunrise

    I got mine for £15 including postage. The store stuffed up but honoured the price of £13 and cheap postage. Winning today

    surprised, but thinking I like the new neon.. mainly because it looks more green than yellow...
    what say you, who have the neon - Brandon, and Toffer?

    I'm not Brandon or Toffer, but I hope you don't mind if I throw in my 2 cents. It definitely does have a greenish tint, though it's yellow, and that does help. It's much better than I expected in person, though still very bright.

    Thanks for your impressions Laura : ) What color inks are you planning to use?
    I haven't ordered the neon yet, but was thinking Apache Sunset, or Diamine Meadow..

    Howdy tytoalba! I just held it up to the bride and asked, "What color is this?" "It's yellow," she opined, "like highlighter, fluorescent yellow... Neon yellow. It's neon yellow." Next I held it up with the apple green, lime green, and yellow models. "Is it yellow or green," I ask. "Greenish, but definitely neon yellow."

    What a lamb.

    made me chuckle Brandon.. guess we'll go with neon yellow... ; ) ( a tad on the greenish tinge side)
    It really does look better next to the apple green than yellow 1 & 2, imho

    Let's just say it makes that cheery lime guy look positively drab by comparison. Neon yellow and apple green? Now that's a smart pair.

    exactly.. and regards to you bride to for her opinion, it counts

    btw, what do you think Lamy will do next to drive us all crazy? neon orange or blue?
    Certainly won't be purple, or British racing green, or terra/vanna Hah!

    Hah, I was going to say the same thing. The neon looks nice next to the apple green but it makes the lime look sickly. Which kind of messed up my pen case's ROYGBIV arrangement.

    ETA: sorry I was responding to brandonh's comment. I need to figure out the posting methods here.

    We are sorely missing the violet or purple. Hello, Lamy.
