More Than Meets The Eye

So I have to be completely honest, I was never that into the whole Transformers thing in recent cinema releases.  And to be even more honest about it, I was never into the toy range.  In fairness I come from a different, slightly older generation.

For many of us, it was Speed Racer and Ultraman.  And yes, I know that there were limited edition G-Shocks for both of my boyhood obsessions, but yet again I was at the tail end of the conga line-

This is the G-Shock Limited Edition  DW6900TF-SET and it is DOPE!

Obviously, the watch portion is important, it is the DW6900 which is completely digital, no analog.  Here are the pertinents -



200 meters water resistant

1/100 second; measuring capacity: (0’00''00~59’59''99) for the first 60 minutes, (1:00’00~23:59’59) after 60 minutes

Measuring unit: 1/100 seconds (for the first 60 minutes), 1 second (after 60 minutes), split time

Measuring unit: 1 second; countdown range: 24 hours; countdown start time setting range: 1 second to 24 hours (1-second increments), auto-repeat

Multi-function alarm:
hourly time signal

But let's be honest with ourselves, the reason why this limited edition is the SHIT THAT KILLED ELVIS is the fact that it comes in a fully functioning Transformer action figure!

(IMPORTANT Editor's Note, it is an ACTION FIGURE! it is not a "toy", it is not a "doll"!)

And as big a fan of my friend Robert-Jan Broer as I am and as wonderful as I (honestly) think his Speedy Tuesday collaborations are, I am a teacher / social worker by day, and my collecting desires need to be based in real-world economic realities.  And at $350, it is within this educator's modest reach.

So once again, thank you G-Shock for reminding me about why I love watches as much as I do, and please ask the folks at the boutique to put one aside for me, I have my card ready!
