    $200 for a broken pair. But then again who knows how long your working pair will last.

    That price is shipped without the box and lights might not work. Or yellow soles.
    That's true. But for that price I wouldn't mind just wearing them around generally. Thanks.

    This is what I did and I had them change out the shoes several times in the QC pictures. Mine wasn't bad as they didn't hook up the el in the sole to the battery.

    I it changed it out cause I didn't like how din it was. Other then that I haven't has any other issues with them. I've worn them out a handful of time so far for a few hours at a time and they still work great.

    The wires for the el in the sole didn't have the clip on them. They were fed through the shoe and not hooked up to the battery. There is pictures up in this thread, I don't have them anymore.

    When I hooked it up the el was dimmer than the other shoe so I replaced it. After replacing it was perfect.

    Nice! I want one of the USA bottles in the box.

    Managed to pick up a pair of the Doc Brown Nike vandals today. Got the last pair on a website for 61 posted from Italy.

    Do you ever miss owning those real 2011 MAGs? I still have not even seen a pair real MAGs yet. As far as I know, at the time of the September 2011 Auction, only one pair made its way to Australia and that owner lives in Perth (about the same distance from LA to NY) on the other side of the country.

    The only copy of the paper I have is the copy I got off you back in 2012/2013(?), or what ever that was.

    The Matty Board is not the best thing they could have released but is is OK. It does make a good MAG stand. I just need to find some green and pink velcro and update the decals. The local fabric shop only had black, white and tan the other day. All their colours were either sold out or "end of line".

    As for other licensed product, even the Diamond Select's Mr. Fusion is not as well made as it could have been, given they had access to the full CAD of the original prop. It is what some have called, "an expensive candy jar". Like the HB, the price I paid was too good to pass on. So it is now part of my collection. I'm not convinced that the Flux is worth the asking price though.

    Out of the three bottles (Why Pepsi? WHY?), the Argentina is the best, most close to screen accurate. The Mexican bottle is HUGE, too tall and thread under the cap becomes visible the first time you tighten the lid. The Argentina version has a smaller thread with a big over hang part, so you never get this problem and from the images I have seem, is closer in size to the actual prop.

    Something that seems to get missed is that back in the late 1980s, a drink bottle like that was based on 500ml. In the following years, bottles grew out to 600ml and even 750ml. It seems that these re-releases were made on the larger 600ml size, not the 500ml size use in the movie.

    All I can say now is BRING ON THE UHD version of these films. When Universal did the 25th anniversary BD release, the studio master was created from scanning the original 35mm print negative at 4K. So all they need to do is re-master for HDR and give us 2020 colour!!!

    Not at all. They were a depreciating asset. Any year now the batteries will be dead in all the real pairs and the only way to repair them will be to cut into them. Immediately ruining their value. Let alone the charge ports had almost the same issues as the V3's. I even had to shave down the charger plug on mine to get it to fit all the way into the shoe. The V3's are SO damn close to them that I am just happy to still have 3 pairs of those (all working).

    I do have to wonder when that bubble is going to burst, because you are correct, these do have a limited shelf life thanks to a sealed battery.

    I took inspiration from your prop room video and bought some big plastic tubs to store the items like boxes and old MAG projects that I don't want to just throw away - yet.

    I won't be selling those Stompers anytime soon. I don't care if the price drops. I have wanted these for a very long time. I am thinking I might just have to buy one of those industrial aluminum steps (about $80, but should look cool) as a shelf display for them. I am also recycling all the 'gone into gel state" polyurethane left in the cups from sole pours, by whipping air back in and then pouring that on a part of the work bench to create a rubber replica pool of alien drool. I am hoping I can get it to eventually drip off the side so when cured, I can have it look like it is dripping off the shelf/step or what ever I end up using. I also have my "ALIEN" tile (that is not in any of the movies BTW) as a back plate and am looking at sourcing some yellow Perspex for the W of the Weyland/Yutani logo which I will get laser cut.

    I am thinking shelves might be best for the BTTF 2 stuff as well.

    Except those p1ss yellow soles. Working on more clears now. The new mold seems to be doing what is needed. I am also pouring them by their part weight now. So for example, the front oval part is 25 grams and this ensures uniform thickness from each pour.

    Only because Pepsi released the 6500 version. With the dated box.

    If they made a Slice one I would be all over it.

    Hey everyone,

    About a week ago I got a pair of the V3's that I ordered from DHgate. I have to say, I'm pretty damn impressed with the look of them, but after one week I'm having an issue with the lights! And I haven't even worn them. I know there's a shelf life as coincidentally there has been some recent chatter about just on this page, but a week?

    I've got a message in with the seller and am hoping they will rectify the issue, but in the mean time I was wondering if anyone here has come across this particular issue and maybe found a solution. My hunch is that aside from tearing the thing down with some electrical know how, there is no fix, but here goes. So it seems to be an issue with the switch as they are turning themselves of anywhere from 5-20 min after being switched on, just one shoe. Anybody see this happen?

    The way I see it, Pepsi are #2 up against Coca-Cola and always will be because unlike Coke who is constantly reinventing itself, Pepsi is just Pepsi. Since MAX, when have they actually released anything new? 2015 was a random year that seemed way off in the future back in 1989, but it came (and went) faster then most of us realized. Pepsi had one of the best film based advertising campaigns already done, with a HUGE world wide fan base of 26 years. They should have had Pepsi Perfect out 12 months before hand, so that by October 21, 2015 Pepsi Perfect was a house hold name. They didn't and in the end, seemed like a last minute rush job to make a product in time for that day. And what was it? Nothing new, just original Pepsi in a limited run bottle. Really? It was almost like their marketing department were not even aware. Anyway, done now.

    It is not the switch, it is the battery. The switch is momentary. That means when you press it, it allows a pulse of current to flow to the circuit board that turns on the lights. The lights are powered by the battery in the sole. If the lights go out, it is because they have no power.

    Happened to another guy on here. No fix. He had to get a new pair. His wouldn't stay on either.

    I don't know about mine as I wouldn't have a reason to leave them on for that long anyway.

    How much did you pay. V3 or v3.1?

    And this is why David upped the price tto $709. The extra $210 is his "After Sales Service fee", yet he still wants to charge another $200 for a replacement pair.

    I paid $530 including shipping. What's the difference between the V3 and V3.1? I'm not familiar.

    The seller responded with:

    "Friend, if the shoe is out of power, please charge it.
    Do not turn on the light when charging.
    The lamp is controlled by hand and cannot be turned off by itself."

    Annoying because my initial email already stated that they were charged, and they were turning off on there own. Responded confirming that. We'll see.
