    I have no clue, but it shall probably be a very limited edition Frogman. Wasn't there a red DW-8200 2000 model? Well, Ozzie should know better than me....

    Cheers,

    What about the very first model, the DW-5000C-1A? If I found one of them new in it's box, I'd be a very happy stinkypete :-D

    OOOoooopssss, I forgot about that. I think you can be right. Maybe they will pay more for a DW-5000 from the beginning than for any ltd. ed. Frog. Casionerd should know (where is he been).

    Yup - Those new original DW-5000 are expensive lol..

    Japan and new around $1,300 that's NEW..

    But without a doubt, this model FROGMEN wins hands down

    It's the partner to Sjor's favourite Red Skeleton.

    Check out the below picB-)

    Are there any surviving prototypes? Like the modules encased in rubber balls, etc. It'd be great to see them in a Casio museum.

    I was very impressed by the Seiko Museum in Tokyo, but my friend was like, "ehhhh...." Probably should have taken her to the Ramen Museum instead.
