Planet Eclipse Ego Visual history

This Thread is dedicated to the history of Planet Eclipse Ego Markers. The images in here will represent Each years markers. The images in this thread are provided by members (credit for images will be updated as I get time). This list will include the Stock body marker, SL Marker and any private label bodies (this does not include guns that are a stock milling with a team or other limited anno). This thread was created to help new users be able to identify each year marker from others. Please do not PM me asking what year your Ego is, or if I need pictures. I'll keep an updated list of what I need pictures of in the thread, and if you can provide good clear high res photos of that marker, please send them to me and let me know that I may use them.

Here is also a direct quote from Jack Wood on the SL naming.

The first year we did and SL (SL66) I based the flowing lines loosly on the Merc CLS but ended up calling it SL (another Merc brand) as it fitted quite nicely with Super Light but still had a Merc reference.

66 came from the 6th model of 06 released, as stated above.
74 came from 4th type of 07 released (Etek, 07, PL, SL)
8r came from Mercedes Mclaren SLR
94 came from 4th Ego SL ever released (SL91 was supposed to be 1st Geo SL ever released)
SLS came from the Merc SLS. Stunning looking car

So the naming is random. Each year is something different.........

Someone please copy and paste this somewhere so I don't have to type it again next year

So to the final question: What does SL8r stand for.

Well, I wanted to have something a little different from the 2 numbers at the end, and sticking with the Merc theme, the SLR was out and about, so I combined the SLR name with the 08 MY and came up with the SL8r.

It was NEVER meant to mean or be pronounced as Slater!!

Happy to Help

Jack


I have compiled all of the data in this thread using Official Release posts by Planet Eclipse, or information that has been confirmed by Nicky T or Jack Wood from Planet Eclipse



Check the list in the second post for photos I need, if you have or can take a good clear high res photo of one of the markers listed shoot me a PM.

yeah I know, still building the list, and getting photos. I'm hoping to have it be a comprehensive list soon enough, and maybe get it stickied so we don't have as many "what year is this" threads.

Awesome, a true thread and not one that just takes up the purpose of PbN pursuit points. I can say I learned something today now!

Good luck getting this photo-history lesson completed. There are quite a few variations of the older models which I imagine are going to be the hardest to cover all of.

It is an Avalanche, the only difference in the milling though is that it has "Avalanche" milled into the body, otherwise it is identitical to standard SL74 milling.
