Talking The Grand Unveiling.

So here it is, as some of you know I've been after an Entity Matrix for quite some time to add to my Matrix collection. Growing more and more interested in one as time passed I thought I'd send a certain someone an email.

Simply put I inquired if she knew of the current location of any of the Entities so I could contact their owners. I knew there were Entities in the hands of Aardvark employees, but never in a million years would I have anticipated her response. Lets just say alot of my markers and other tangible goods went up for sale immediately.

Long story short, I hereby present to you Rachels nib Entity, and my latest acquisition:


Various other items that she was kind enough to include, both unique and prototype parts:


I will put up info and pics on the individual parts later on in addition to sharing some additional history tidbits.

PS- The specifics of the deal will remain between me and her so please, do not ask.

Next time warn me that I need to have an extra pair of underwear ready! That's amazing. Please let me know if you decide to sell any of the parts, I see a few things that tickle my naughty bits.

Rachel was the founder of aardvark paintball, fyi. So it would make sense that she have a stockpile of factory unused parts.

aaahhhh, *relays connecting in brain*. That makes sense. I figured she was a key player since she was referred to by her first name and everyone (else) knew who she was. Thats cool she let all of that go though.

Thermo, don't feel bad, I didn't know who she was the first time her name was mentioned to me. You hang around these wise OT guys and you'll quickly learn the ways of the Matrix world....or atleast some of it.

Oh neat! How does it feel to be one kidney lighter? I assume that's what you had to sell; I know what she was asking for it.

Anyway congrats seriously. You might hit up ghweltzer for the pewter Aardvark grips that fit on the LCD frame; I doubt he has a specific use for them. That is, of course, unless you're going to put a .45 on there.

We all know this gun is still in good hands, so I'm not really pissed at all. Cool stuff!

edit- this seriously reminds me of my old 'loot' picture when I got stuff from her. I won't have access to that picture until later this week, but it is similarly cool.

The real question is how much am I going to have to pay you to take pictures of that gun and at long last, 2 years after the thread was brought to life, have pictures of an entity left right and 45 WITH A MATCHING BREACH?



also congrats that is a hell of a steal.

Indeed, it pains me a bit to let some of it go, but not as much as it would have if I passed on this unique opportunity.

My kidneys are all fine, the rest of my belongings not so much
I will keep the Entity as is parts wise, the most extreme thing I'll do if I decide to use it is having the aardy frame matched to it.
Never had the pewter grips before so I'm definitely going to keep this set.

I think I've seen that picture, definitely stunning!

Well, additional pictures would obviously have to take wear into account, exposing things to light is hazardous after all. $200 per picture is fair, no?

If you look towards the lower right there are several more entity breeches

And thank you, this purchase has really made me a happy man. I still remember the first time I saw an Entity.

[I'm trying to convince my gf into purchasing some nice white backdrops as we speak]

Any chance of you letting go of one of those snouts? I would love to have one for my Tequila. I remember talking to Rachel awhile ago and she said she wouldn't get rid of her Entity, nice pick up.
