Ozzie, awsome pics...congrats on your new G's. I am really liking Green.
Excellent pics! Wasn't too sold on the cream or the green, but after seeing some close up shots like that, I may have to rethink that The cream has really nice contrast and isn't as "white" looking as I thought it was. The green w/ reverse display has a nice sort of stealth look to it, almost "tactical":-D Funny, didn't you say something about this reminding you of MASH:-D :-D Yeah, but that "army" green is pretty sleek with the reverse display. I got a Black one on the way - may have to now get the "trifecta":-D
Wonderful pictures. I especially love the green Mudman! Thanks for posting them.

Awesome pics Ozzie!
Have to get my hands on the Mudmans!
You can always rely on Ozzie for great pictures with all angles covered
The EL backlight on the cream/biege Mudman looks very cool isn't it

Glad you boys are enjoying them
The cream backlight is cool and covers the outer white part with a white shine while the face is an orange glow.
I actually like them both and Bigmike, you will like the green as they both appear nicer in the flesh.
I think these models will go down possibly into the $50 EBay value once the market is flooded so I wouldn't rush.
I used a flash for both so the colours probably look a little lighter than in the real.
The green display is quite hard to read, although the camera flash light's up the digits.
Both very lightweight watches, and are not so big, although not so small in size.
The red writing on the green models face looks cool and takes the greeny away.
MASH. trendy, fashionable, cool, surfy, macho, Military, this watch fits them all and will look good in all situations.
For all that know ORIGINAL Master MUDMAN'S, don't expect these to compare as they are totally different and could be called a "different" MUDMAN.
A cheap good looking G-Shock that many will like
Nice pictures Ozzie!
But you say that they are totally different then the past Mudman. Do you mean it is not worthy of the Master title?
Is your impression after feeling and looking at the watch that it is of poor quality for a G Master?
On the pictures I have seen it appears to be of good quality!
Hi Ozz, kewl pics , hope to be proud owner soon too!!
In the "Master of G" series all models had a specific users group. The Mudman (the Raysman and Gussman too) were made as a watch that you take with you in very dirty enviroments. The real buttons are covered by soft places in the bezel. The buttons are harder to push (as owners probably already have experienced), but that's the toll to pay for it's mud resist character. I also compared it's size to the GW-203 and actually the case isn't as small as it looks (or the Frogman isn't as big as it looks).
Most "Master of G" models have some kind of gadget or novelty. Actually the Mudresist case was the only improvement on the original Mudman, while it is actually just an oversized DW-6900. THe new Mudman is as far as I know the first G-Shock model with two stopwatches (not even mentioning it's 1000 hour recording capacity!)and the first model with a Dual Illuminator. I think on the Creamy it's the nicest new EL that I have seen in a long while.
Note that the Codename Cypher and the Lungman were both also not very big Masters. Therefore I say the new Mudman can proudly bear the name "Master of G", which I wrote also when I got my first one. A great bonus is that this new model is very affordable priced (sounds a lot better than cheap).
