^^^ Can't agree with this... The Critical frame just looks terrible on any Intimidator and the Guard looks just all wrong. The feedneck looks like the Space needle building in Seatle. It's nice, but I don't think it should've won its month and shouldn't be in here. The other 4 entries are excellent but the Empire, while very nice, it's missing one of the signature components that made completed its look which is the Frame and Trigger Guard but the Hybrid Grip Panels help a bunch along with the blacked out fittings which bump it back up quite a bit.
majinebz's Species is well done as the entire marker was Custom Anodized from top to bottom and some aftermarket improvements were made throughout.
jonny lunchbox's Species is probably the best one up there but aesthetically, for the eyes, the AKA Regs are blocky and lack style
in every sense of the word. Just plain cylindrical components made for functionality with no regard for looks at all. They're not eye sores either but when you look at them on a Marker with such extreme attention to detail, they look rather lackluster. It also has the Empire Frame with the Species Guard AND is the only Marker in the list with a genuine Techna Trigger. It's only drwabacks are the look of the Regs themselves (although some love the look) and the fact that it doesn't have custom anodizing but some people, much like myself are fans of the stock ano's, specifically the smooth fades.
proto06's Shalias is one of the nicest of this model. It's only drawback really is the body design itself (I personally have never been a fan, much prefer the original ST Timmy) though some are huge fans of them and the fact that while it looks better with the Alias frame, the milling doesn't flow from the body to the frame. The color choice is unique and looks great. It actually makes the body look nicer to me.
