    DW-6900: "peace through tyranny" (modemburner)

    Me=happy!

    Please let me explain:
    I was just a few minutes at home from work and there was the magic sound of the door bell with a nice guy dressed in his orange/white outfit (The Netherlands, you know...): the mail man. Hate soccer, love this man.

    After some transactions (money, signature) he handed me this little box:


    note the toy (watch) description

    Not the best quality pics ever made, but you'll understand I was in a hurry...

    Next step is some help of my Swiss buddy:



    Another box inside:


    note the Takara Tomy mark

    Now it's time for some real fun:



    And some more....







    Some other details on the watch, the back (the Decepticon logo is a little difficult to capture: it's a kind of shallow engravement but IRL clearly visible, that's why there are three attempts)







    Some wristshots:




    posted this one to show the relief in the dial

    And the all important logo on the strap:




    glad it hasn't got relief, I hope it doesn't wear of to quickly

    And of course the cool EL logo:




    And the watch in action:

    Some are happy....


    ...and some are not






    Prime and Megatron in discussion:


    Me=still happy

    Bought this watch on eBay: (toyjapan090)

    Very nice guy, fast handling/shipping/emailing. The only thing -he couldn't do anything about that- is that Dutch customs palyed for a week with my watch/toy, otherwise shipping was three days.

    congratulations on a beautiful Megatron 6900. I like that last photo with the 2 in discussion over the watch.

    Ha ha Flex,

    My 7 yo son had some lessons about mail. They went for an excursionto the mail distribution system. Now he shouts "TNT" when a car, truck or mailman is seen in the typical orange/white outfit. So you don't give much about football too. I had much fun last week, wearing the white FIFA watch von "der Mannschaft". There is a BBQ party here at school on Friday 13th, when we play against France. Nice date for a game, ha ha

    Cool watch and even more cool pictures. How did you find that one. It must have been an anonymous tip. Too bad about those greedy customs. It seems to get worse every year. In the past Katsu-San's and Seiya-San's packages always arrived within 3 days. Now almost 100% of packages of me are caught. Most of the time I get charged around 35.- - 40.-. Lately the charges tend to be higher...

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Looks nice. Much better looking than in the stock pre-release picture most people have only seen:
