What is up with the RG Finish/Color Selection?

Is it just me, or do some of these finishes/colors on the RG series (especially the higher end ones and the ones with HSH configurations) this year look rather unattractive?

For example


and

Of course there's always black, but besides that, where are the reds? The blues? etc. What's up with all of these off colors?

Ibanez has been in a 'drab' color zone for years. They need to get back to basic colors, blue, green, red, white, etc.

I actually like Royal Blue. I think it's nice. Im a huge fan of white pickups and I think white pickups with Royal Blue would look awesome.

Well I like royal blue too, but the fact is, that is nowhere close to royal blue.

This is what royal blue is suppsoed to look like - http://www.creativeplay.com/samsonit.../big/royal.jpg
