    I am looking at getting a 1st gen serialized Juliet but don't know much about them. Are there any major differences between them and the latest ones I purchased besides rarity and numbered? Are the hammer stem a clone taken off a xx or romeo? I have about 8 more pairs on my list so trying to finish up before the end of the year.

    The casting process was much more primitive with 1st Gens..... Expect some "pits" and imperfections on the finished product. I personally think its pretty cool "character"...others are not a fan.... Here is a pic of a 1st Gen X Metal frame. Notice the pits under the Temple Shock. Newer Gens are much more smooth and sleek IMHO

    Well, somewhere between 500-650, there're some on eBay with crazy prices though

    Those prices on Ebay are ridiculous for the most part. I just scored 2 Gen1 Juliets (plasma/fire and plasma/ice) for $600 package for both mint condition with boxes complete.
