    Its funny, I've heard so many opinions of what Morpheus glasses are, yet perhaps this 2-paragraph article has the best practical explanation regarding the differences in Morpheus glasses from shot to shot:

    Yeah I read about them switching it. The "official" glasses that he's suppose to be sporting is the pure black mirror version but they only swap it if it got in way of filming.

    I would say that doc's glossy black looks more like what they wanted the glasses to look like in the film rather than the super glossy version. The figure is gonna be under a detolf lighting for most collectors and I think the glossy black would better represent what the glasses look like.

    Gloss black is what my minds eye remembers.

    Hey, guys! Thanks for the feedback. I honestly wouldn't mind offering both versions. it's a bit more to keep track of, and a couple extra steps for the mirror black, but nothgin unreasonable.

    However I did run into one issue. My gloss black coat that I used to take the photos was dry when I took photos, but probably wasn't fully "cured". As such, after 24 hours or so the ultra smooth surface became less smooth, possibly as the enamel contracted or whatever. They still look great and shiny and whatnot, but not as slicked over as they originally appeared. I'm not one to settle for decent, so I will kind of have to go "back to the drawing board" as it were to make sure whatever technique I use results in that nice, smooth black. I have attached a little video showing how these look not in a light box. If you slow it down you can see the less smooth surface of the gloss black, while the mirror stayed nice and smooth.

    You may also hear my son's voice which is why I haven't been able to get a few other pictures in different lighting yet, haha!

    I'm still liking the mirrored black one best.

    It captures the "black" but has the mirrored effect more pronounced. If it's not an issue, I would go with that option.

    A good discussion is like a miniskirt; Short enough to maintain interest and long enough to cover the subject.

    Haha I hear you. I think the mirror black captures the overall look best as well, but I also totally see the gloss black opinions as well.

    If it comes down to two separate versions based off preference then I will just organize the ordering post with that info in mind. Ya know something like:
    Option A) Gloss black
    Option B) Mirrored black

    And then just produce however many of each one is needed.

    I am going to do some more tests pretty soon on the surface to make sure I really get the smooth surface for the coatings to stick to. It's a frustrating endeavor sometimes because application one time might be perfect and then on another pair I get artifacts. Frustrating!!

    I think I prefer the gloss black (the one on top in the video?) I think I can see some of the jaggyness of it, but doesn't look bad overall. Thanks for all the work!
