OK, nearly filled my two boxes so i thought i'd stick them up:

The Antman next to the Mudman to demonstrate it's not THAT big!

The 'MC' which is one of my favourites!

Really solid collection there Spencer. Which is your fave? Liking the Antmns (or Antmen) and Jason.

Looks like it got a relatively mixed response on TZ ;)

What (if anything) next?

Can't say about favourites matey, they all bring something to the party. The Jason is cool i must say but the DW-003 is quite cool. The Antmen are just something else, retro in a kind of 'Blakes 7' type way. The Gulfmen are a lovely watch to wear and the 5600 is nice and subtle for a solar/atomic watch.

TZ are a fickle bunch, i must admit i'm newly converted to G-Shocks but, whatever happens, i'll be keeping most of them. I'm not saying anyone is wrong but i do think that some do not recognise G-Shocks for what they are, a bit a snobbery perhaps?

What next? I have a 5500MC on the way from the US and i'm very interested in the camoflage versions on e-Bay you posted a link for and i do look for the occasional bargain on e-Bay but i'm putting money away for our holiday now so no 'Major' purchases until at least September.

If you're anything like me your favourite will change regularly, although I always seem to have one or two which get regular wear.

TZ are generally a good bunch. Some of it is banter but I guess there might be a little snobbery from some. It's easy and wrong to dismiss the G-Shock as 'just a cheap digital'.

The dytac models do look cool. Which 5500MC are you picking up?

It's the 5500MC-5JF, looks good as well. The Dytac models, have you handled any? Just wondering if the finish is robust as i don't know anything about the 'water transfer' method of which they speak?

DW-5500MC-5 you say? Nice choice, although shame I didn't spot your Zombie Slayer swap thread sooner.

All I've seen of the Dytac (or Dyatec?) is the listings on ebay. It does look good in the pics but I'd also be interested to know just how durable it'd be. On the newer Casio camo bands and bezels the two colours look to be part of the resin, i.e. the resin has two colours. On my older Python / Addict the camo is printed onto a regular green band / bezel - this has worn off in places.
