The collection of Intimidators so massive it can only belong to Lopez.

First, thanks to PBNation for setting this forum up. It's a great idea and the collections that have been posted in the week that it's been open have been impressive to say the least.

Pictured below are the Intimidators in my collection. With the exception of the 2K2's I still have all of the Intimidators in my possession. For giggles, I should take a picture of my garage and illustrate what it takes just to store them all. Plus the 24 Loaders, 14 Tanks, 25+ barrels/kits and everything else. I'd have to take a picture separately of my intimidator parts and tool kits as they take up an entire 8 foot folding table in my kitchen.

For kicks I threw in some pics of some of my other markers including some vintage AKA goodies! Enjoy!

DISCLAIMER: I apologize upfront for the crappy pictures. I'm not a photographer, don't pretend to be one and didn't stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

RARE STUFF

These are the rare Intimidators. Unlike other markers, the truly rare Intimidators were small production runs defined by unique milling and not anodizing.

Prototype Ironman Intimidator
The Prototype Ironman Intimidators only have 4 milled panels instead of the 5 or 6 that the standard production run sported. I rebuilt this one from scratch getting new jewels, attaching an Empire Gripframe, Yakuza board, and Redz Feedneck. I kept the 2K2 vibe by keeping the Ironman 2K2 block, Chain Trigger guard and Tomahawk eye covers. As a tribute to IOG, I put on some custom IOG grips. They break up the ninja look and add a splash of color consistent with the feel of the gun. It also has a Techna Scythe...as most of my markers do.





Ripper 1.25 (Prototypes)
Unlike most BS claims that you'll see in the BST section of this site where people claim to have a 1 of X marker where X is some artificially low number, these markers are truly 1 of 3. Jim only milled three of these guys. I own two. I'm told by the BLAST guys that Bob has the 3rd in his office. At some point I'd love to complete the trifecta.











HELLWOOD Intimidator
The Hellwood Intimidators were made for Hellwood, a paintball team in France. In 2007, Bob mentioned at World Cup that 40 bodies were made, however only 14 production guns made it to the team. These markers are essentially Naughty Dog Intimidators without the paw print milled into the body. They've become a coveted gun among many Intimidator fans due to the fact that they're exceedingly hard to get. The team is based out of Europe and to my knowledge there are only 3 of the guns that have come into the United States. This one and two others. The body is also something of a novelty and combined with the rarity it's turned many would be Intimidator collectors into Ahab chasing after a White Whale (or in this case a purple-black fade Hellwood). The original regulator was a little beaten up, so I tossed on a newer Torpedo. I also added the Empire trigger guard and a Techna. It sports a Tadao M6 board.

RIPPERS

I'm known for having Rippers. Lots of them. There's something about them that's amazing. The milling has always been impressive, they look great on the field and the Classics in particular, catch people's attention. The classic rippers are nearly 12 years old and have held a consistent value and those in good shape still fetch decent prices. I've been fortunate to find several in really amazing condition and with minimal wear. All of mine are the original anodizing/color schemes including some of the more uncommon ones.

Ripper 1 - Ironman
The Black-Clear Fade was a custom design for Bob Long's Ironmen. A few months back in the Intimidator of the Month thread, there were some really awesome pictures posted. It was good to see that so many have survived and are in great shape. I got this guy about five years ago, gutted it and rebuilt it from scratch. It has a Techna Scythe, AKA 2 Liter, and an Empire Gripframe that was anodized to match the marker. It's an impressive marker.





Ripper 1 - Black and Blue
This is the first Ripper that I bought. I love the striking color of the Black-Blue fade. I've toyed with several configurations for it. I had dualies on it for about two years but they didn't work well with the Empire frame as it put too much pressure on the barb. I eventually had the underside milled, the body tapped and put in an Alias front block/LPR, Alias Ram Sleeve and fully 2K5'd it.



Ripper 1 - Black

This is the latest acquisition to my collection of Classic Rippers. It's been owned (at several times) by two friends of mine (McGyver and Tabris17). McGyver owned it back in 2005/2006 and made it Black with Lime accents. The parts, unfortunately, were over anodized and the marker never worked quite right. It eventually went to Tabby and he got it back up and Ninja'd it out. He sold it and then got it back. Now it's in my hands. It's a great marker and compliments my other Ninja'd markers well.





Ripper 1 - Under Construction
My last two Ripper 1's are still under construction. They're also two of my favorite markers. I picked the Black-Green one up last year. It's barely been used. Ever. When I bought the gun it was covered in a layer of dust indicating it hadn't been touched in many years. It's so new, there's no wear in the breach. It's been tapped for a 2K5 block and milled underneath to facilitate an Empire frame. Once I get an anodizer to color match a frame and accent parts to the marker it's going to look damn sharp. The last marker is a chrome plated Classic. I've been told that there were only two of these done and I've been told that there were five done. Regardless there weren't many. The chrome polishes up very well. I'm going to have the accent parts done in lime, and a gripframe done in chrome as well. It should look incredibly sharp when it's done.







Ripper 2
This was my workhorse marker for several years. I bought it the week it hit the market in 2004. I loved the milling and other than a few o-ring changes, I've never had to do any major maintenance on it.







Ripper 2.5
I was bored in the winter a few years back and snagged the 2.5 for a good price. It had accents that sucked so I ninja'd it out. I love this milling pattern. It's a nice mix between the Classic scheme, the 1.25 and the 2.







Ripper 3
This marker, my Ripper 2 and my Vice have the distinction of being my workhorse markers. Of the last 10 years these have been my primary marker for about 7 of those years. Terry was kind enough to give me dibs on a Ripper 3 as they hit the market in 2006. This was the first one released and was built by Terry. Not surprisingly I've never had any issues, and have yet to change an o-ring in it. It's still one of my fastest markers.

Other, more Vintage Intimidators

Here are the other Intimidators that I own. They're not listed in any particular order. Some of them I bought new (Texas Storm) and then modified and upgraded. Some were project markers (Classic, GZ). Others were great buys (Lasoya).

Texas Storm









GZ





Lasoya





Classic
Interesting note about this classic, the black-olive fade is rather uncommon. This is also one of the few markers that doesn't have a classic threaded feedneck. It's threaded for impulse/ion threads.




2K2's
Both of these are long gone and have the distinction of being the last two Intimidators that I bought new and sold.

Recent Bob Long Stuff

These markers are a little newer in the scheme of things. I love the contrast of Ninja markers but I also love the look of Gloss Lime Green.

Vice









G6R







Ripper Victory

AKA Markers

Next to Bob Long, I adore AKA's stuff. I feel like AKA's precision machining has been the best in the industry and the fact that they got caught up in all that Smart Parts patent BS only served to deprive the paintball community of some real innovation.

Excalibur - 17
This is one of the earliest Excals on the market. Until I sent it to DC last year for an overdue tune up it still had the original MAC solenoids. The wiring was finally getting brittle and cracking. After getting some new noids it worked flawlessly again. Jared's a beast and gets my recommendation for any AKA work. I'm also fortunate that my neighbor VicodinES can handle most straight forward AKA work too. Though it's heavy as a brick, it's by far the smoothest marker I own.





Vikings
I've owned some awesome Vikings over the years. My current one is pictured below with the Pevs and AKA sticker. It's a beast and used to belong to RobAGD. It was a workhorse on several local Pev's Teams and is just awesome. The Featherlite and stock Viking were markers I used to own.

Wow, your black/blue R1 almost looks identical to mine, empire frame and all. Mine has a matching deco block however.

I wonder who has the flame intimidator. I remember it popped up in like 2005 or 6 for like $700, I should have bought it! 1 of 3 I believe. You wouldn't happen to have one of those hiding in your collection would you?

There are only two Flame Intimidators. The black-red and the funky black with chrome accents. I don't own either but I'm told both have extensive wear.

One of the flames popped up more recently than that because some ****ing moron named STO Karnivor offered his stock Karnivor for "2 of the 3 listed". The 3 guns were the Flame Intimidator and two other rare ones (I want to say a Ripper 1, and maybe a Hellwood). I nearly shat myself at his stupidity. This was like last year.

Aggression84 sold the black and red flame for around $700 3 or 4 months ago. It was killing me I didnt have the cash for it at the time.

How would you say your Marq Ripper's milling quality compares to the 1's or 1.25's? The Marq Rippers I saw seemed a little less "impressive" to me.
