I ate a chili pepper and when I woke up, this site was here.
Around Summer 2002, I was spending money on nothing but bills for school and who knows what. My brother had just gotten Scars, to which my impression was "that's really dumb to spend all that money on sunglasses", but then I tried them on and really noticed the difference in quality. I'd never seen a lens be so clear before. My comment was Everything looks like the Autolevel function in Photoshop. What a nerd I am sometimes. At that point the Splice came out and my brother wished he had waited and gotten that instead. So one day when I was at a cookout playing hooky from work, the one shred of champagne taste that I had kicked in and I decided to get a pair
After that, I got a pair of minutes, but they were too girly and didn't look like the online picture, so I gave those to my sister and then got a pair of leather Mars, since they were so odd. That lead to a pair of 24k X-Metal XX's, and a Time Bomb. Then on and on and on. Once the site took off, it was all over. I think I had a dozen or so when that happened.

Most are boxy bricks until you add the peripherals, so it's hard to tell most of them apart. Probably something in the scarlet territory if they're using it for commercials since it's in the $10-15K investment area.

You're the master of the old Wires.

There's healthy overlap.

We are bad influences.

On my Time Bomb, there seemed to be some texture, so I assumed it was a single layer, which shouldn't be too expensive. I don't have a gearbox to compare though.

Welcome, good to have you here. The site's always been a chaotic mess, but I do what I can.

I got the flyer today, so they may be just auto-enrolling accounts.

I recall the Hatchet and Why 8.x series being the first that I saw with the model numbers on the inside. So late 2004 was the end of serials, and sometime in 2005 began the SKU printing. I don't think I have any X-Metal from after 2004, so I can't verify any of the more modern Juliet's/X-Metal XX's.

Every bit counts.

Nice find. A small misstep on that Pit Boss photo though.

I also heard there were 7 hand painted ones. They took the stock Black, painted the flames and then put them at Spectrum to see how they sold. I had one for a while, but couldn't really verify the story, so they didn't really remain special for me.

We should make PDF backups of these articles in case the original sites drop them.

Thanks, I would have assumed it was only just the color and branding which would have differed.

I remember seeing the Time Tank bracelet when it was in the early stages at R&D around 2005. Was luck enough to get in before basically no one was allowed through. Was the Tread at that point still.

I have all of the colorways and some in Gen 1, others in Gen 2. All have the vent around the nose piece.

Look forward to this.

Nice pickup. Great pair, just shame about the high price.
