Element Case Ronin

element case has done it again....

Just look at the pictures and it says it all. This is the sexiest case i've ever seen so far after the Sector 5!

It's a work of art, but definitely not for me.

Definitely has some high workmanship but at 200 dollars I don't feel like buying a case that costs the same as my iPhone - that's just me.

Wow, I really like this one. I've been trying to convince myself to get a sector 5 but never believed it would look well with a white iphone 5. I checked out trunket back plates to match the silver/gunmetal color sector 5 but those colors are too dark.

I love this color scheme and the tough part is deciding to pre-order or wait and risk long shipping times.

While it is nice, it sure as hell is not $200 nice. More like $75 nice. I would much rather plonk down $140 for the Sector 5.

I'm not big on wooden cases, but this is just sick!!!

I like every bit of this except for the pouch.

Ok, now thats one Element Case that looks nice. Again, $200 is just so unnecessary. They could maximize profit if they made it $100, it would be a killer.

I like it a lot, but with a graphite backed phone (I know...install the brown backplate), I don't know if I like the combination on the black phone (would look awesome on the white, though). If they made this with a black wood, it would be pretty awesome. Don't know about $200 awesome, but great nonetheless. I can't see ever spending more than $100 on a case. Ever. I mean, if I drop my phone and it shatters into a million pieces and the frame gets mangled, it only costs $229 to replace, so it's not exactly worth it for the 'protection' factor. It'd only be for a looks factor, and with the brown/black mix, I don't think it's worth it there. Like I said, for $100, I might be all over it.

I don't know, the shape is a bit too weird for me. Although I love some of their other cases, they are awesome ...too bad I can only afford Speck cases :/. Though the CandyShell is nice it is nothing compared to these cases or Grove cases.

Element should be a division of Apple. Apple makes quality products that are high in price and Element does the same.

Tempted, but I would be so bummed if the case screwed up GPS like the cases I tried on my iPhone 4. (realizing part is wood part is alloy)

It should be sexy, it costs as much as the phone with a new 2 yr. contract.

really tempted by this case. love the design itself, but i wouldnt normally go for wood. wonder if they'll put this out in aluminum. i think i'd pick it up if they made it available with a lighter wood. or if pictures of it on a white phone are really convincing..

i've contacted them for pics of the case w/ a white iPhone either through email or posted on website. Haven't heard back.

Hopefully they'll post something. That would really seal the deal.

i can say this bumper was made for me! waiting a dang long time for a wood bumper , its not all wood but sexy nonetheless to me , the only thing stopping me is the huge price tag....cant justify spending 200 on this

Not for me though I do have the Sector 5 FE which I love. Just not a fan of the wood. I wonder how long it will take for the Chinese companies to rip this one off with a counterfeit made out of lead impregnated balsa wood??
