    Question What's the story with the Mastermind editions?

    I know they're super limited and retail was set very high for all of them. They are all out of my acceptable price range for digital watches, but I am intrigued by them.

    There is a seller on ebay who has the Frogman 190498385070 and he claims it is number 3 out of 180. The caseback picture shows it is 3 of 200?

    I saw a website that said there were 200 made but only 140 ever sold. If that's the case, what happened to the other 60? I would think they would have gone on sale at discount prices if people weren't willing to pay the inflated retail price. What was original retail anyway? $1200? $1500? $2000?

    It was around $1200 USD when it was first released at one store in Japan. It basically sold out before it went on sale. I tried to get a Japanese dealer to buy one for me. He went to the store days before the release to try to reserve one. There was so many people that wanted them that they had everyone sign up and then they did a raffle to see which people could actually buy one. My number wasn't picked. These started going for around $2000 on eBay just after. I'm not sure what they are selling for now.

    It's got to be one of the rarest and most desirable G-Shocks in the last year or so. Mastermind is really big in Asia. I just think this Frog looks awesome. And I'd like to wear one, but the price is a little crazy.

    Don't forget the Mastermind DW-5600 and DW-6900 editions. These are also very rare and rarely seen, though there is a set up for sale on the bay just now.

    Yes, the Valentine's collection Mastermind.... I like these better than the frogman. Again, ridiculously overpriced
