    Because the xx Xmetal is the "common" pair out of all 4 made. Oreview has the release order of them, and the price that they are going for depends on many factors so they are not essentially more expensive.

    Oh so, basically the pair I have to find now? haha. I've seen pictures before, but I guess none as clear as the one you have above, thanks for the answer!

    Holding value aside, I think the TiO2 is the best looking XX...

    I have all 4 XX; for various reasons I only end up wearing the 3rd gen TiO2 or X-Metal finishes. The 24k are a little too blingy & fragile for regular wear, but they are sweet too...

    Also, to answer your original question, the Plasma XX is the most expensive and rare of all the XX today. As I understand it, only one run of XX Plasma was made due to poor sales.

    Pricing tends to go like this, from most to least expensive, assuming they're 1st gen complete with box coin etc:
    1. XX Plasma ($600+... if you get the chance)
    2. 24k ($475-$500+)
    3. TiO2 ($450+)
    4. X-Metal ($425+)

    $'s off for missing box, coin, etc... and for later generations

    Just one guy's two cents
