Great, I just picked 1 up.
If I hear anymore of these "It's gonna hurt my Current
Marker's resale" Whines... I'm gonna start selling NIB Timmys for $200.00 to really kill your resale values, ALL OF YOU!!!
You see, what kills your resale value IS NOT the release of a New Marker, it's the people who can afford to pimp out the $1200+ Markers out for Crackhead prices so they can get the next new thing. If you recall about 2 years back when the Alias was released... IT DID NOT Lessen the Retail price of the Dragons, or other 2k2 Timmys for that matter. It did slightly lessen the resale value of used 2k2 or older Timmys but not by much. It wasn't until the DM4's & other Alias Bodied Timmys (Dark, Ripper 2, RL, ND, etc.) were released that people started selling 2k2 Bodied Timmys for less than $800, and soon after you began seeing Alias' going for around that little.
Were the drastically low prices warranted?... NO.
But some people had to have the Next New thing, no matter the cost and as a result, resales (on High-End Markers especially) plummeted.
Besides, why should you care about resale values when you just finished buying a new GEN4? You are exactly the problem, YOU. If you have a great Marker that actually works well for you, WHY LOSE your But just to get the newest thing on the block? Are you somehow miraculously going to shoot 10X faster than anything out now?
If you answered yes, you should sell your GEN4 tomorrow for whatever you can get for it!!!!

Just another prime example of how information transforms into urban legend as it is passed from person to person. The Body Andy was probably referring to was an ION Body Jim was working on at the time. The Ripper ION.
As for this New Marker, No it will NOT affect Intimidator Resale one bit. This new Marker will be aimed at the market just below the Defiant 2.
The only thing I am allowed to say is that it is a single tube design and it is different from anything else out there.
