    Has the G-9000-1ver become hard to get hold of?

    Having searched all of the usual avenues such as tiktox and ebay etc I am finding that nowhere has a black (with red buttons) mudman for under about £50 (most sites are up over £75!).

    Am I incorrect in thinking that not so long ago they could be had for prices around the £35 mark or am I just imagining things?

    Also, I keep pondering over the wearability (colour and how much it stands out etc) of a "stormtrooper" mudman as I quite like the flashing face. This said I wear a yellow 5600 so perhaps that won'r be a problem...

    Thanks in advance for any help you give in finding a cheap (uk based) black or stormtrooper mudman.

    saw them £40-50 about a month ago - 75 seems a bit much

    Having just spent an hour or so web "window shopping," the best price I could find, in those sites that had stock, was on the bay through the seller ivshc. He's based in Hong Kong and I've used him before. He's fast and efficient.

    I paid £46 inc. delivery for my G9000.

    Thanks for the advice, I am probably going to blow a bit of money soon and a trusted overseas seller is probably what i am after as I want a black g-9000, a black 5500 (with red buttons), a tan g-9000 and maybe something else too...

    Yep, everything right to the "1" is showing the intended market.
    The watch is the same, the packaging may differ (tin<>cardbox) and the manual might be in a different language (while english should always be included)

    Thats a plasticine fox that I made. It was small enougt to fit onto a teaspoon and I made it to prove that just because a girlfriend did art at the same time didn't mean she could beat me at making a plasticine fox.
