I just wanted to update this to say that I saw some sunglasses this week at Urban Outfitters that were very similar to the ones at the top of this thread. They were silver metal with the oval in the middle, and seemed to be roughly the right shape. The bad news is that they had mirrored lenses, not the proper smoke color.
Still, pretty close for anyone that's looking for a pair and they were on sale for $10.

They are not available at the Urban Outfitters website (I just checked), but if you have a store near you it might be worthwhile to go in and take a look. The two pairs I saw were at the Santa Monica, California location.

Well, almost a year later I have finally managed to find a couple more pairs of these sunglasses.

I have two extra pairs to sell. These are better than the sunglasses warehouse ones linked earlier (in my opinion) because they don't have that thick piece of metal across the top.

One pair I have has black metal frames, so they would need the frames painted silver if you wanted them really correct, or you could just leave them as is.
The other pair has the correct silver frames.
They both have the correct smoke-colored lenses.

They both are in the style of the ebay pair I put up pics of in the very first post of this thread (except they are a little better because they don't have the extra metal piece across the top between the eyes.)

They are both $14 plus shipping. Early bird gets the worm so PM me or email me. And yes, the silver pair is better so I expect that one to sell first.

I bought these because I didn't want them to disappear and I knew fans were looking for them. If I find more online I'll post a link, but as we know, these have a habit of disappearing quickly.

Hey ! Guys
Watch this.
These sunglasses are sold in Japan.
This is perfect MM replica.
However, this is expensive.
And It may be small for you.

Wow Babasan!
That's amazing!

How much do they cost? Is there a website where we could order?

Do you own a pair? Could you tell us how many cm across and how many cm high they are? I could compare them to the measurements of the sunglasses I have.

Thank you for the measurements.
Those are actually very close in size to the American ones I have found (maybe 1 cm smaller across the front).

Yes, they are very expensive, but I think some U.S. fans may be interested. I might be interested myself if I hadn't just sold my entire Mad Max outfit...
