    It's FINALLY Here! The Rising Red Mudman Arrives! Unboxing pics inside!

    Yes, my Rising Red Muddy is here! Like several other members I pre-ordered mine shortly before release on 15 Sep... I was watching the prices creep over $500 USD as the date neared and I scrambled to find a seller just north of $400. Then there was the wait ... the long wait for the 15th to come and the shipping confirmation message to arrive. On the 15th, as I was growing anxious watching others post "Mine shipped!", I had heard nothing... finally an email arrived. To my dismay, it wasn't the shipping confirmation, but instead this cryptic message:

    Thank you for purchase this time.
    but I found this item broke point.
    so I cant send this item,
    I was already refund your money via paypal.
    please check it.

    Im so sorry this time.



    NO! So much for pre-ordering. By this time all exporters were listing the Muddy at full SRP and over. Way more than I wanted to spend... so I started digging through Yahoo Japan auctions via From Japan, and I found a BIN at 27000 JPY - or about $350 USD! After FromJapan's fee and shipping it was still less than 400! So it all worked out in the end, even though I still had to wait for the item to be shipped to FromJapan's office from the seller, so they in turn could ship it to me. On Friday I did finally get that Shipping Confirmation and here it is today!

    And wow ... now that I have it in hand, it is one striking piece. Much better in person than any photo... but here's my feeble attempts at the unboxing...


    Standard international packaging
    with good secure padding keeping my G-Shock safe --






    But the Eric Haze box looks better out of its shell --




    as does its contents --








    There she is!






    This thing is a beauty!









    I love that this special edition has no annoying EL backlight image




    I seem to have an affinity for this color scheme




    And another one for the 9300 - I love this watch!





    Thanks for looking!



    Now the waiting begins for the GF-8230 to go on sale in the US!

    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.

Thanks for taking all the great unboxing photos and posting here! Enjoy!
