    The MIMB series came out in 2009 for the JDM and abruptly ended by the end of that same year. It was strange, because there were a lot of people on WUS who were interested in it, but it looked like not very many people were able to obtain one (retail sales were in Japan and Europe only). I've seen a few people here on WUS declare ownership, but some ended up selling theirs. Originally I wanted to start a count thread like the ones PIOWA runs, but I'm thinking it's probably folly due to how much time has passed since the series was discontinued and that there wouldn't be a useful count obtained. All I know about at this point is:

    GW-9010MB-1JF [Mudman] ---------- 1 (Riley, Joakim Agren, ishcm)

    GW-9100MB-1JF [Gulfman] --------- 2 (Riley, Sjors, Xevious)
    GW-9200MBJ-1JF [Riseman] -------- 1 (Riley, mairtinb, ishcm, Sengyoku)


    So, I figured a more interesting kind of thread that might flush out owners would be a pics thread. I'll start it off.

    Loved the series when it came out. Still looking for a Gulfman to complete the set.

    I got my MIMB Riseman not too long ago albeit a little beat up. lucky find really because I managed to source it and sell my vanilla riseman (which was even more beat up!) for about the same price :)



    I got some new resin for it but I found the roughed up look of it was quite distinctive, so just kept it like this :)

    The mat black series is one of those rare series in which i actually think every model in the series looks awesome. I would have been equally happy to pick up either a mudman or a gulfman in this series - whereas I'd normally be biased towards a particular model from a series...

    The new GW-9400BJ Rangeman could almost join the family I think :)

    By the way... I'm curious about something regarding the Mudman.

    The solar "honeycomb" panel on the MIMB Mudman seems to look almost purplish-light-gray in many of the photos I've seen, while the regular edition Mudman seems to be more gray. I'd always wondered if it was just a trick of the light combined with the lack of other colors and that the panels are actually the same, or if they truly are different in appearance. Anybody know? I've cobbled together a side-by-side shot as best I could to try illustrating this:

    I don't have mine any more, as I'm not a fan of neg displays. In fact it was this watch which put me off them! Anyway, some pics.









    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.
