Discovered Oakley around the Mid 90's. I love their design vocabulary and unnecessary materials they use for their products. I am more of a passive collector now, not really buying much anymore. I primarily collect display items from the steel and rivets era of Oakley.

Oak you don't need all that edgy nonsense. Just get a basic chair.

That is a mighty fine tree.

How you still find this stuff in 2020 is beyond me. This was a hard find for me 15 years ago.

That is a cool watch. Several elements from many other watches of that time present. Wonder why they didn't make a run of that.

Why does old unobtanium break down and get gummy? Not all of it does but some of it does even if you never touch it. Anyone discover a catalyst to stop the reaction?

Yea there are two promocodes on the back. One for the 20$ and one for the 50$

Those are still pretty cool.

This is an incredibly interesting thread. This is brings back so many memories of when I discovered this brand in the 90's.

I'm just happy NECA is finally going to finish the TF2 collection. I have been waiting on the last 3 for years now.

Thanks, O. Im a huge admirer of your collection, which, by the way appears to have eclipsed my own! happy holidays my friend. - brennan2x

HA! You are hilarious. And happy holidays to you as well.

That is fantastic! I couldn't imagine a better collection for those to be in. Congrats! - Oak

Pretty much. Brennan is the pinnacle of oakley collections imho.
Dec 24, 2016 4:19 PM
I love you people! Even though I have only met a handful of you. Merry Christmas, happy holidays and whatever else you celebrate.

Hey Francois. What are those? Who makes them?.. Disregard. Found it!

Received the last piece to the Marvel Legends line, the Iron Man helmet. No one would escape looking goofy wearing it but it does have some cool features like a removeable faceplate, electronic sounds when you re-attach the faceplate, and light up eyes you can still see out of when it's lit up:

- Oak

Damn Oak, you're the man. So who is your all time favorite character and are you more of a DC or marvel guy?

I thought so too. I would expect them to go for much higher but there is also a markup percentage on the item even after you win it. Just nickel and diming everything.

Phil Tippett, a big time props and fx guy for many big movies is auctioning off tons of stuff including the original robocop costume.

Oct 4, 2016 12:26 PM
This guy does some really cool stuff, but a lot of it are one offs or a run of 20ish. It's hard to get one of the uber items.

Out of every category of item I have collected, displays, glasses, the grips were the most fun to track down. That feeling of "complete" was great. I never had the same love for any particular model of glasses to want to go out and get one of each.

I was a little behind you. I think you had them all before I started. You did inspire me though because I wanted to encompass the history of Oakley in my collection and was after all of the iconic pieces. I realized I didn't even have any grips and at the time you were the only person I saw that had them and were quite proud of them. I wouldn't say that I paid up for them which I am happy about because most things I have I definitely paid up for but the grips were a fun search to get at least one of every model. During the hunt I found that I was pretty much competing with the BMXers and the cost would greatly vary. I found some for 15 and would see the same pair for 90, then again for 30. The fluxuation was interesting to see. After the 2010 retro it pretty much changed into the scalper market on grips.

I loved this. So glad I got one of every type years ago. A little hard to track down now.

I believe actual collectors make up like 1% of their revenue anyway. We end up exchanging more money between each other than retail.
