Just wanted to let you all know that even the world wide release is now sold out! So, if you were like me waiting then ebay is your only hope .
I have been waiting for quite sometime thinking that it will show up at local stores like Macy's, Bloomies etc. or even online like Amazon.com or something with no avail! Finally, I called the Casio USA and found out the US and International release all was also limited to a very low quantity not more than one or two thousands. They were also limiting it to one per household and unfortunately, it is now all sold out everywhere including at below:
ShopCasio.com: G-SHOCK G5500AL-1
Now my only hope is ebay and you know the rest. I think even on ebay it is very scarce only 4 or 5 sellers, who has it.
Alas, I am afraid somehow I missed the boat...
