    Identify the G, more J-land shop photos, and a couple of Frog questions!

    Hey guys,

    I have become addicted to this forum already. I never knew how much of an obsession G's would become for me!

    I took a bunch of photos when I bought the Skyforce and Wademan this weekend (Since they had the case open to get them, it was a perfect time to snag photos). I was hoping you guys could help me with some IDing and pricing questions (Since I am too busy to research and enjoy electronic-conversing with you guys anyway)...

    Ok... First and foremost... what is this gorgeous creation in the middle? I think it's a Mudman. It has orange straps and bronze hardware. It is NIB and absolutely flawless. It's pricey (in comparison to the rest of the case), but I really want this to be my next buy.

    Next, what is the deal with this Frog? Its 21,000 yen, not a whole lot, but leaps and bounds more than any other G's at the shop (besides the one mentioned above). I held it and inspected it thoroughly, and it is near-mint EXCEPT for 2 relatively deep scratches above the R and O in FROGMAN. It's a shame, because the watch is perfect otherwise. Any idea about the model? Is this a good one? Worth that much with scratches? (I had this in my hand ready to buy... I want a Frog SOOO bad... but I am extremely happy that I opted to buy the Wademan and Skyforce instead. 2 for less than the price of one, and those babies are MINT).

    Speaking of Frogs... Is there a "Stormtrooper" Frog? I love that color... What about a smoke gray/gunmetal colored Frog?

    I also love the yellow '99 Frog and found one online, the DW-8250YU-9T. What is a reasonable price for one of these in excellent shape?

    Basically, I want a Frog that isn't plain black. I love black G's, but I want a flashy Frog

    Ok, I have a bunch more photos and some other ID questions, but I will save them for tomorrow. I have to get up at the ass crack of dawn for work and I barely slept last night (It is already frigid in Hokkaido at night and I accidentally left a window open. I woke up shivering violently haha).

    Thanks as always. This forum is great! The best one I have joined in a very, very long time. I appreciate all the replies, as it can get lonely out here for a gaijin in the northern end of the northernmost island in Japan!

    Yep its a Mudman 9010. I can't see if its GW or G (i.e. atomic or not). I forget the exact designation as regards colour scheme but that's the watch. I really like mine - excellent module. Not exactly a looker though I'll grant you but I think they have a certain charisma.

    I don't know anything about Frogs.

    The Mudman is a MIRO GW-9010R-4.



    The Frogman is a DW-8200ZU-1T:



    Or a DW-8200Z-1T:


    Check the band for the main difference.

    I don't know what would be a good price for most of those in Japan. You can check out Yahoo Japan Auctions to get an idea on market prices there I guess.

    There's quite a few light colored Frogman models. Take a look at the full range here:

    That looks like a MIB I Frog. And I reckon the price on it is very good considering its condition. Ones in good nick with b&p normally sell for at least 30K JPY.

    I got the Skyforce and the MIK Wademan from a previous post :) I will post more photos of them soon, just working on getting something better to shoot them with then my iPhone!

    What do you think I should go for next? Anything in the photos? I love the MIRO Mudman (not a fan of the copper colored hardware though, wish it was just simply black and orange) but I dunno if I should wait and save for a Frog (or just buy the black Frog even though it has 2 little scratches... I am picky!).

    Cool! Looking forward to seeing your pics of those two big classic Gs. The Wademan's one of my favourites.
