    First let me say this: I love the almost steampunk look of the leather Mars, with the gold iridium lenses, and was really bummed to hear about the dreaded leather discoloration issues.

    I am wondering if it is possible to get a similar look (albeit without the leather) using some of the other X Metals. Has anyone put any of the brown-hued lenses (VR28 Black Iridium, Bronze, Titanium Iridium, etc) into an X Metal colorway? I am especially curious how the root beer unobtanium pieces look on that frame color. Do any of you have pictures of such a thing?

    I honestly think my Romeo 1 frame is more x metal than titanium, so here is an idea of how the color combination would look...

    The rootbeer is hard to see for me.. i am planning on moving the Lenses and Rootbeer to a plasma Frame, then using this frame for Black Iridium and Black Socks/bombs

    also its relatively easy to 'leather wrap' a mars crater.. to get that leather mars look. then when its thrash just re-wrap it!

    Jive, what is the lens color in that Romeo?

    Just as I suspected, this combo looks amazing, thanks for the pictures everyone.

    From what I've seen, root beer unobtanium is only available on the Juliet. Sounds like I'll be doing some modding to make this look work on my X Squared. The nosebombs are compatible between the two, right?

    From what I am being told, gold polarized. It also has a rootbeer kit on it but it is hard to tell.
