Just as expensive as the vapor......but with all the features it comes with is really impressive. It'll be interesting when it finally goes out to people and see what happens. It might have problems but it also might not

Let's face it, Empire just does not know how to style guns any more.

Outside of the Sniper, I'm struggling to think of any Empire markers that I like the look of, including the new ones released today. The features, though - that's where I think Empire really shines, and the Vanquish is chock full of great new features. I like the lubing assistant and single-size screws perhaps the best, but there's lots of other good stuff there, too.

Went "not good" because its even uglier than my Axe :P

But the tech inside excites me nonetheless. The whole "everything you need is on the screen" really intrigues me.

This board seems to at least be innovation which is always a good start.

EDIT: The one allen screw makes me want it a lot!

This is probably the worst looking high-end that I have seen in the past few years, plus I don't know if it is worth a $1500 pricetag.

Nope.

I love you.

Wow, somehow managed to completely forget about the Empire Timmy, and someone at my field even uses one regularly. However, I counter with the Creedpire that they spec'd out with Vanguard. That's another cosmetic atrocity. I definitely like the look of the Empire Intimidator, but I wonder if that just had better bones to work with from Bob Long's initial design.

Yeah, that trigger is the second thing that needs to be redesigned, but the first thing they need to redesign is the whole gun.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

Personally I could give no shits about milling, harder to clean. If the top tube and BOB was more like the axe I would like that more. Fore grip I would prefer no rubber. The regulator didn't need to milled, Also scythe trigger would have been better. Also the metal tip should have been added too.

AND OMG DAT CASE, is so cheap looking. You'd think at $1500 you get a case like a EGO/GEO, Vapor, Macdev, LUXE. Holy fucking shit KEE, Hard covers wins over neoprene, no tool box unlike the mini or axe? Fuck off and give me something equivalent to a Axe players kit. And make that a 2oz thing of SL33K or GR33SE, not a fucking little dish of it.

Personally the case, I would put it in a LUXE case. bottom compartment with marker, barrel back, tip, condom, and jerk squeegee. Player parts kit, one ball socket allen key, one screwdriver allen key, tube of GR33SE, Freak inserts, (other tip?) on top. Separated by a neoprene sheet with a sleeve on the side towards the insert, and put a full color manual in there. Other non essentials on field, can go in in the sleeve to be removed and kept at home or something.

I dunno how many of you saw it, but I was bored so I designed what it should have looked like, minus the trigger The back cap is what really messed with the design, made it look like a discordant mess. The rubber could look nice , It just doesn't look nice with the current design. The eye covers needed streamlining, and the milling on them changed, but other than that it has potential. Also that reg/asa combo looks bulky, and out of place, so I went all 09 impulse and put the reg in the grip frame. It's a great gun performance wise, hopefully this is the ugly duckling phase of the marker.

That frame is getting pretty close to 90 degree's. I think with a few adjustment's which would eventually be pretty reminiscent of your sketch the gun would look better.

If I'm going to pay $1,500 for something, it better look good. This goes for guns, hookers, and couches.

I agree, I mean I like the invasion and it is by no means a really good looking marker, but the performance is fantastic and it's a mid $500 marker

The frame is actually closer to the real thing when the paper is flat, its more the way it bent when I was holding it. the main thing I wanted to improve on was the body's overall shape and flow. Hopefully the aesthetics are improved with the next version

Well, it was nice while the hype lasted. It may end up being a great shooter, if it is then tons of children shall be running up their parent's credit cards, otherwise it is just another $1500 gun that doesn't deserve the price tag.
