I want your colour scheme ideas guys!

Post by mattyg » Wed May 12, 2010 1:53 am

About to go under the spray booth are a Sanyo TRY and a Goldstar. I am almost convinced of going all white for the TRY but a decent combination for Goldstar has me baffled due to its two tone design. I can colour the main unit shell and leave the existing dark contrast or I can recolour both in completely different shades. Thoughts guys?

You know has nice color combos? Electronic Arts for their older 3DO releases. How about black & purple like Twisted, or green and black ala Escape from monster manor?

Metallic gold for the Goldstar. Bling bling?

TRY will be white with possibly black highlighting.

Have narrowed the Goldstar down to yellow/grey , maroon/grey or metallic green/grey - but still open to suggestions!



Sorry Vance but the gold Goldstar ain't happening :)

My vote is for Yellow on the Goldstar. The original color combination for the unit was rather boring.. Spice it up a bit! ;)

I had an idea to use chrome highlighting on the TRY , unfortunately it was too cost prohibitive so it will definitely be white with contrasting gun metal grey buttons and highlights - the controller is receiving the treatment too!

The Goldstar may have to wait a few weeks - actually thinking of going yellow/tan for something funky.

My urine is yellow and not all that spicy. Although, I have never tried it, so maybe it is.

Maybe "brighten it up a bit" would have been the better word selection here, haha. :)

Okay the TRY is to be white with white controller and gun metal highlights - the Goldstar will be green with gun metal contrast - had to keep costs down by using 3 colours overall - results next week!

Actually the Goldstar looks pretty good in the flesh! More like the shockwave colours as Trev suggested.
