Black and white platy?

Has anyone seen a black and white platy with the white on its underside kind of like a tuxedo platy?
I found this picture on Google and think it looks totally awesome.
I wont to know if they are easy to get or if they are unusual and you don't get many of them.

I also found a picture of some almost pure white platys with a faded black mickey mouse on the tail which looks great as well.It could just be the flash from the camera that makes them so white but it looks great anyway.

What does everyone else think? Has anybody seen these two platys before?

That Platy is really nice looking, like to have it. As for easy to get, Ive been in roughly 4 - 5 dozen pet stores in 5 different states some of them pretty big, and have never seen one like that just some that are black with maybe a couple of white spots. As for the white ones their nice too. I've seen some nice pure white ones in a store in N.J..

I know it looks amazing. I have lots of bright colourful platys like gold, orange, yellow and red ones and if i got one of those black with the white belly one it would stand our so much in my tank. I really want one

I live in England and have just brought the 'tuxedo platy' for my new fluval chi, there were loads of them in my local fish store, many of them have an orange underbelly as opposed to the white colour like mine and the one you liked.
