    Mine's arriving on Sat. I've spent way too much on Quartz watches this year.

    Sigh...

    20181228_230326.jpg I'm speechless. This set is amazing. The condition is that you have to really be into watches, which I am, so this was a match made in heaven. The band is a metallic blue, the mirror finish on the face says TRANSFORMERS at the top, and of course there's the Autobot logo in the backlight.

    The watch base itself is kinda weird, as it only somewhat tabs together, but the clear blue plastic and logo on the base help make up for it. The matrix is pretty cool as that is also translucent, but he just looks absolutely royal with the watch in his chest. A decent amount of possibility, too.

    I can't thank my wife enough for allowing me to get this for Christmas

    I've got one coming from TFSource. If anyone is willing to part with the watch let me know.

    You're brave! If mine got scuffed when I wore it out, I'd have a fit.

    Is that a translation, or is that the story that came with your American G-Shock?

    I got this limited Edition Tag Heuer Henrik Lundqvist Edition Aquaracer. Limited to 205 pieces, but so freakin expensive for a quartz! But Lundqvist is one of my sports' man crushes so I had to splurge ;) . I wish it was automatic like Tom Brady got, but oh well. Tom Brady is....Tom Brady.

    Because of the crown, it doesn't really fit in robot mode.

    The watch is something. I never had a Gshock before. My friends thought it was funny. But yeah, if I wasn't into watches or Transformers for that matter, I'd never get this.

    The legs are terribly over engineered for what could have been just pull out and fold over for what they were designed to do. Watch is really nice like I said, but for what it is, to get the regular version new, it really is expensive compared to it.

    But oh well. Glad I got it. Wife looked at it and groaned/rolled her eyes. :p

    Was on the back of the instructions for mine. Unfortunately I don't have a scanner so took the best pic I could with my phone.

    I don't mind scuffs if they're caused by me. I feel like it's part of the memory. Wore it today for work since it's casual day. But probably won't for a while. My 4yr old doesn like the light up function though.

    That's weird. I guess that's a variant for the US mkt. I'll tell you what's not in English, the instructions for the legs. Ugh, what a pain to get back into "stand" mode.

    I started to use peaugh's video, then just said screw it and figured it out myself.

    If you could possibly upload high res scans of the instruction stories, I'd be really greatful :thumb
