I heard that if you buy this gun, you are guaranteed to get laid every time you shoot it, or your money back!

Planet Eclipse is known for the awesome sound their guns make when they're turned on, so this new marker from empire plays SUNSHINE LOLLIPOPS AND RAINBOWS when it is turned on










:dodgy:


You could actually do that on a luxe 2.0 board if you wanted to. If I had a 2.0 board I actually might have done that, it would have been pretty funny.

It better be in some form of orange. Or orange with black detailing. Else the Orange Chicken will be disappointed.

the gun is wicked quiet, supposedly will have Luxe internals, possibly an Axe board (hopefully)

It's long like a G6R / Luxe, that's all I know for now

It looks alot like a G6R without milling

You'll see mockups and promo materials at World Cup, but I heard they won't be ready until January.

If empire released a marker in the 1500 dollar range it would flop. People are wanting and expecting them to release a quality "mid-range" marker.

So basically an Empire branded Luxe then, if that price is to be believed.

1000+ empire marker would not flop. If Empire released a marker anywhere close to the Axe it would create it's own competition which hardly any company wants to create. I think it's about time Empire released a High-end, they have been out of the picture for a great many years.

Why would you interrupt sales of an Item that is selling so well? The Axe is doing phenomenal, why would you introduce a marker now to compete against it? The Axe is getting a bit older now and if they introduced this marker around 500-700ish it would kill the sale of the axe unless empire cut down on the MSRP. I Highly highly doubt this new marker is for the kids between local tournaments/Rec Ball.. This marker i probably geared towards the upper end of players. ones who can drop a few G's a year on new gear every year without problems.

It always annoys me when I see people bring up "but pro teams use it." Pro teams will use anything that works like they need it to. FFS, give Heat eXTCys and they'll do the same as Luxes; doesn't make the eXTCys any more "worth it" just cause a pro team used it.

I dont know it looks very awkward to me like it was taped, either that or they stuck an un-machined trigger on there. For all the grief the axe gets ergos already I dont think it would be a very smart move to create an weird trigger.
