So what I took from that, and it could just be the angles, is:

1. The Vapor is longer from the front of the grip to hpr
2. The luxe is longer overall
3. The vapor is .062 kg (I think, it's hard to see on my phone) lighter than a luxe w/a virtue board (don't know if a virtue board is lighter or heavier than the stock one)

Please tell me if this correct or not and thanks for the pics!

no im a still shoot it. but when you compare them its hard. the only other time when something was this close and dont yell at me was the mini and axe. when the axe came out everyone was o no its a mini just redone. to me both the vapor and the Luxe feel good in the hands they both shoot smooth. i just have some issues with the vapor that i dont like already. And in my eye i think just a little more thought would have mad this better.

but if you like my Luxe you should see my Ripper. My problem now is i have 3 good guns and one play gun me Etak 3 LT

yes when i hold them i cant feel the difference. Its not like we are on the field with a shocker 4x4 or something. Plus my set up might feel lighter then others or heavy. Hell if i can play with a 88 on my luxe the weight is not a problem. I just took the pictures cause some ppl just want to know.

Now for the ppl that do have the Vapor is there anything you dont like or that was funny when you took it out the box. My pin inside the asa fell out

I've heard of the Asa pin falling out, but I haven't had that happen yet. I did put some Dow 55 on the oring on the pin assembly when I heard this was happening to swell the oring a bit for a tighter fit.

it happened to me and underprivileged. that dow will do the job, i believe machine is now putting a bit larger oring on the pin to keep it in place.

Although. it still shot amazing right out of box all day!~

The ASA pin is removable and has to be taken out to get to one of the ASA screws. Mine came out as well during shipping, without seeing the posts put some dow33 on it and reinserted hasn't come out since.
