I have to admit that it looks impressive, like its price.

Owning already a TB-1 I find it hard to justify getting this one but....wow, it looks amazing.

Oh no . . . I thought I was done with full metal squares . . . I want it 😢 I'm a big sci-fi and mech nerd so I love the look.

Always a pleasant surprise when G-Shock releases a model that I don't think looks like crap. First the metal Casioaks, and now this. You G fanboys might eventually win me over, after all. :)

That price! Whoa momma!

Rough translation:

"And now, the bad news (or the less good, to put it in some way). And no, it is not that they have spoiled everything in G-Shock and have put it inverted since, as you can see, its display is a practical and useful LCD in positive. It is not that, but how unattainable it will be for many people. And it is that its price - official and for Europe, in the GMW-B5000TVA-1ER model - will be € 1,640. Already, brutal. Like the same watch. For the lucky ones who can reach that price tell them that it will be on the market next November. If you can get hold of him, don't let him get away."

Close to $2000 USD. o_O

MUST BUY MUST BUY MUST BUY

For 2K price tag I think it will come with the figure. Still that price makes me hesitate now. I'd have to sell a few.

I am an 80s child, grew up with the Transformers. Collected them, akin to how I collect G-Shocks now. So, price is no object on this one.

Glad I didn't buy the TB, that's for sure!
Might not be fair to do an apples to apples comparison, but if I had bought the TB, I would be pissed, because no way I could justify having both.... hell, I might have to now sell my TCM! o_O

I watched a lot of old mecha anime like Macross (robotech), Gundam, and a whole bunch of others. This model also speaks to me. I might let go of my TI camo for this one.

Retail on the TB is $1700, so this ain't far off... Besides, I think US models always fair better price-wise than the Europe releases. Hoping it maxes out at $1800 🙏

It doesn't speak to me at all. I don't like that extra text everywhere. That's a good thing, I guess. I don't need to be dropping that kind of coin on another square.. ;)

Like the watch, HATE the price.

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, charges such wildly absurd "titanium" and "sapphire" taxes as Casio. Look at all the major watch manufacturers that offer an identical case/movement in variations of steel/mineral vs. titanium/sapphire, and NONE OF THEM EVEN COME CLOSE TO CHARGING WHAT CASIO DEMANDS! Maybe $20 more in Casio's manufacturing costs somehow translates to a +500% price premium? GTFO Casio, you're drunk.

But they'll keep charging it as long as we keep paying it I suppose, so ¯\(ツ)/¯ I guess...

The "invisible hand of the market" (Adam Smith) is definitely at play here, but any guesses what that invisible hand is doing to Casio's accountants' groinal regions? Hint: it's NSFW.

I think it's very ugly and overpriced. I would go as far as to say that anybody who buys it puts not only their health but their life at risk. Casio has lost their way and they are actively trying to kill us all. I will have to buy them all just to make sure they don't hurt anybody else. I'm willing to make that sacrifice because like the one ring it must be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom and only I can take on that burden. So long.

This looks awesome and taps into that nostalgia factor, but I don't really get the comparisons to the TB-1 other than the matte Ti finish. The TB-1 is based off the origin DW-5000C-1B and is special precisely because of its understated aesthetics (i.e. it's designed to look like a resin square). This thing is something else entirely. And I like it.
