What would you do with a still sealed boxed X Metal?

This particular pair will likely not get worn much but now I want to get a wear pair and red oem rubber set. That one I had was so cool with the red highlights.
Yeah I would wear it, but would also try and keep this one all original. Get other pairs if you want different color lenses and such. :cool-33:🤙
I have one regular Mars and One crater like that. All original parts and black iridium.
 
The real problem now is I cannot have just one of anything ... I will now need the rest of the complete Mars series plus an equivalent wear pair... I have been down this rabbit hole before 🐇 Probably why I have treated Mars like hot potatoes in my hands in the past and sold them quickly... sigh.... here we go again

I'll save you from that hole

I have a bond with this pair now... it is the only X Metal I own that has only seen my face and I opened... that makes it special to me so that means I must traverse the hole once again... but slowly... Not doing like with the XX and put up a want to buy thread and end up with a dozen all at once 😂

Save some for me. :cool-33:🤙
 
You picked a bad time in history to collect the mars.....prices almost doubled in the last 3 years.
 
I have one unopened box but I put it in the plastic bag with the zipper. Does anyone know if that is enough to prevent foam deterioration. I am a little worried what OP posted about his experience.

I don't think anybody knows. I'd break them open carefully just to preserve them.
 
Idk......dont collectors wanna see what their buying when dropping $1000.00+
If there sealed its really a guessing game and total trust.
