    Already posted an article on this case. Looks like it costs around $110.

    yeah also saw it selling got about 8,000 yen, which is about 110$. i would buy one in a heart beat. looks better than any other aluminum cases in my opinion. i really like how they covered all the buttons and even the vibrate switch! really impressed, but seems like it is only sold in japan, and japan is kinda in trouble right now./:rolleyes:

    One issue for me is it doesn't look like it's CNC machined from a solid block.

    It looks to me from the shape and finish it's caste Aluminum. You don't get the precision and durability. It my be a paint coating instead of anodized or plated (Nickel or other metal).

    By far the best looking aluminum case


    I am betting its just the finish they used in the powder coating.

    mark me down as long as we can keep the price at or below 100$ :D.

    What a sweet case, a lil sweeter than my Vapor satin nickel, love rocking that case on my iPhone 4:)

    Okay...I'm normally not a fan of aluminum cases....but that looks great!

    Only concern is that there doesn't appear to be much in the way extension over the front or back of the iPhone to protect when laying on a flat surface.

    The method used to connect the pieces is much "cleaner" than many of the others I have seen. Less clunky.

    Count me, need Verizon compatible though

    Someone count me in for a group purchase if we can find a contact! Getting tired of waiting on e13ctron. Only question is if this case only work for gsm or the CDMA? I need CDMA

    looking at the video I doubt it would work on Vphone since the volume buttons won't line up. unless they make a Verizon version which I honestly doubt.

    The volume buttons are not the problem. It's the mute switch and the fact that we do not need a sim card slot.

    Seems like a great marketing plan....ignore the other 99% of their potential iPhone market. Note sarcasm!

    Don't understand the fascination with these metal cases that degrade the signal.

    My guess is there are other priority's in Japan at the moment then this case or even this forum! Maybe China will do a knock off like every other case out there.

    I contacted them, they gave me a local supplier in the US. Just shot him an email, i will keep you guys posted on the group buy. For now, PM me if you're interested so i can put you guys down and know exactly how many are buying.
