Welcome, good to have you here. Things can get a little slow between release schedules, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Today 2:04 AM
Getting a Fives 2.0 vibe, which I like.

Johnny's the underdog to root for. I don't care what anyone says.

Back around that time, there was a sunglass store where I got most of my Oakley pairs. They also sold a lot of generic. One of them had this deep red tinted lens with the back mirror, and I toyed with custom cutting them into Juliet lenses, and seeing how the ebay auction would go (or course pulling it at the last moment as to not really take advantage.) Ah 2006...

I just packed up everything related into the backpack, so it's all in one place.

Seems so far away.

Finally saw these in person. The iridium is frosted like the edges of the Tail-series wires. Subtle. I like them, but will wait due to the $183 asking price.

$160 will get you a working 1:1 of the Christmas Story lamp:

Haha. I think I may have finally found a pair I object to.

ditto but dunno if its enough to force me into another frog.... - LEX7
That's pretty much always the case.

Like the Victory Stripe design

Oops, there are probably some signs, but I'd have to look. I'm guessing the newer ones would have the Sku information stamped on the inside. And a larger asking price. Most vintage frames will be labeled as such since people would want more money. The 2014 ones were sold cheap at the vaults for ages, so there were a lot of those, and shouldn't be as expensive.

The 2010 ones had black logos, while most of the 2014 ones were colored to match the lens to a degree. The Black/Fire one shows this well.
2010: Black Logo
2014: Red Logo
2010: Fire Iridium
2014: Violet Iridium
2010: Red Stems
2014: Black Stems
Other 2010 match the 2005 colorways:
2014 match the other Heritage colorways:

The trouble being, I think there's only one or two people involved that are still there. We caught the tail end I feel.
Mar 19, 2018 2:21 PM
Many of the 2014 releases mirrored the colorways from the 2010 batch, but some had different colored logos. This was also when the Oki-ni Eyeshade came out. They were very limited.

From what I heard, the current Lifestyle frames don't meet the full impact ratings (so Collector Frogs are just as bad as vintage ones); only sport frames live up to the proper ANSI ratings.
My main concern would be the Iridium, if any, doesn't hold up well. I don't believe they get as brittle though since I've bent a few both on vintage Frogs and M Frames to get them to fit, and it's been fine.

I really like Homecoming. The ones that stray from the summer blockbuster seem to be holding my interest more, but Infinity War looks to be epic enough.
Mar 16, 2018 6:56 PM
Can't wait. Still have Ragnarok and Black Panther to catch up on.
Mar 16, 2018 2:58 PM
Around 2004, they changed the microfiber and it became more course. The Buttondown shirts were made from the same, and those also became less silky. I find the current bags to be fairly ineffective on smudges.
Mar 15, 2018 2:20 AM
For a short while it was called Alternative Fit
Mar 14, 2018 10:56 PM
Thanks. I'll double check and make sure this matches my records in the DB
Mar 14, 2018 10:55 PM
Thanks for this. Do you mind if I merge this into the other thread I had. When they stopped using the same half dozen icons for most models, I stopped updating it since I didn't have the current frames on hand. I'd keep all the credits intact of course.

Nice one with the Romeo. That's the one I ended up with when I decided I needed at least one.
Mar 14, 2018 4:40 AM
I debated for a while whether I would just get the chronological books or the story arcs since I wasn't sure if they would skip over issues and just do those. In the end, I got all the crossovers, but missed the Inferno Omnibus. Glad I did since 10 years later, they've only gotten to vol 3 of Uncanny X-Men.
