What do you think of the Lamy Lx?

Lamy recently released what is basically a limited run of their Al-Star, called the Lamy Lx (for Luxe). It's available in four finishes; Gold, Rose Gold, Palladium and Ruthenium. Other than the color of the Aluminum the two ways it distinguishes itself from the regular Al-Star is the PVD-coated laser-etched nib and the matching precious metal-plated clip.

It also comes in a matching cylindrical Aluminum case.

For the privilege of owning the case, a PVD-coated nib and the plated clip you get to pay almost twice as much as for the regular Al-Star. Still, if I didn't already own an Al-Star I'd be all over the Ruthenium version.
Would you get one? Which one would you get?

I have to note that they are carried by only a few online vendors and that there is absolutely no mention of them on lamyusa.com nor lamy.com.

Can Lamy perhaps come up with an original pen design instead of making everything look like a Safari?

they have plenty of pen designs. This was in the Safari design ethos

At $100 AU its not happening, Lamy prices here are inflated - the new Safari Black is on sale here at $69. I import mine from Singapore at a more reasonable price. Lamy seems to like price gouging in this country and they don't like people using ebay either.

Lamy, transfer of wealth be thy name! Every company hires individuals (sometimes armies of them) who's sole function is to devise ways of taking money out of your pocket and putting it into theirs. Occasionally the transfer is agreeable if not amicable: both parties get what they want (value for value). Problem is, some of these companies become hungry beasts with insatiable appetites. One wonders if there isn't a person sitting at a drawing board sketching out Lamy designs for cufflinks, watches and leather portfolios--their rationale being: why should I drive a Porsche, when all the guys at MontBlac are driving Lamborghinis? Can't say I blame them, but I'll be damned if I'll pay fifty-six bucks for an Al-Star!

I love Lamys. I’ve got the Safari, Vista and the 2000. Get into it.

I have the rose gold one, very underwhelmed to say the least. The EF nibs are nothing like what they used to be, comparable to their old mediums. The color of the pen is very orange.

nib performance is soso. For the price, I'd rather go with the japanese big 3 or pelikan. I do love my lamy scribble and some non-FPs from lamy
