In regards to Chris J's post, your pictures inspired me to go have a look at those pairs. Thank you because now not only do I own them but I was able to pick up something even more special while there... Thanks again...

I am confused. It says they will be available online Dec 1. I keep looking, but I can't find them. What are they already sold out?

Yes, the TieDye's were online and sold out in hours, and the rest were in-store only.

Well so much for that. It's part of the reason why I am starting to get tired of collecting.

Use to be at least you had a fighting chance. Not anymore. Either they are too expensive or too limited. I guess now they are in the hands of the scalpers.

Oakley, more than any other hobby I've been in (and I have A LOT of hobbies), is unique in that every second item is considered rare or cool by collectors. It's frustrating sometimes to miss out on stuff you want, but i always give the advice to look forward. For every item you miss, there's a couple better ones that you have opportunities to get. It's a hobby where there's not a handful of holy gails that thousands of collectors are after; it's literally thousands of holy grails with a handful (or more) of collectors going after each.

So in short: don't get put off on missing something. There's more where that came from.

I hear you. But my point when I first started collecting Oakley's back in the 80's they were just Oakley's and if you wanted them all you had to do is go to a surf, bike, or skate shop and get them. Now, you have to sit up late refreshing your screen or stand outside a store in a different city just to maybe get your hands a pair you might like. If you don't, then you have to deal with some scalper that's trying to 1000's of dollars for them. It's not frustrating, it's just stupid.

Anyway, I didn't mean to start this discussion in this forum. I was just looking for info.

I feel your pain. I got tired of Oakley collecting, too (but for entirely different reasons). Now I'm just a fan of the brand and products again, and don't classify myself as a collector. Anyhoo, all the best with getting any other Concept Studio glasses you fancy!

That's just it. It's not going to happen. I am not going to pay some scalper for them. I am just going to have to write them off.

I was really hoping for a Madman Concept Studio piece. Not that the stores I can get to will receive it (will probably get a Fuel Cell or Catalyst or the like), but it's cool to wish. Should be cool whatever comes out; Brian does nice work.
