Silhouette for Cyborg

Okay with all the pics being released from Extravaganza is there any chance James and the team at MacDev can come through and post something exciting (a silhouette shot i believe was mentioned) after the biggest let down of a morning in recent memory.

I feel like Ralfy from a Christmas Story after opening all my presents and not finding that Red Rider BB gun under the tree!!

The LV1 may have some pretty bomb technology, but they went full retard when it came to looks.

i just read lurkers post on the inside of the ego. I take back my statement on it being sub par function wise. They took the one thing that I hated about the ego (shot quality) and fixed it (hopefully) I dont like the look and ive never liked how egos feel.

I cant wait to see what Mac Dev and Alien bring to the table with their new stacked tube guns

They should have known you never go Full Retard (agreed on looks-just terrible).

From everything i've read it should be a nice shooter. If MacDev can knock the Cyborg out of the park they may have the best 1 2 combo in the high end market place!!

I don't think the Ego looks that bad. Considering the whole front is going to be in your hands hell if anything it looks comfortable and very very sturdy to hold. The Vanquish went full retard on looks but has some amazing features.

i honestly think the vanquish doesnt look bad. theres so many neat features its mind boggling how no one else did it. it looks like a pistol but longer. idk. i think the ego dropped the ball hard on the looks

Grease sensor.. really? I grease my luxes after I use them. Why should this gun or the GT be any different?

Pressure sensor.. now im curious, did mac dev have this going for them first? Empire brought it to the table first.

It does have 4c eye apparently, oled, freak kit (assuming cocker threads), luxe look alike core with a few changes.

its not a grease sensor. its a lube minder, just build into how many shots you fired. and you can turn it off. it seems macdev and empire did it at the same time. just empire released it first, but macdev announced it first! there is a lot the vanquish offers honestly.

just wait and see what pooty and ndz will do for the vanquish



and james.
give me cyborg. NOWWWWW lol

There are things companies work on in secret, we had no idea empire had a sensor in their gat!

we had been working on the pressure sensor for at least 4 years, hold ups due to programmers and parts held us back. the sensor empire used is one we rejected years ago in favour of a much more accurate and reliable product. the original on board gauge was meant to be released on the Cyborg RX!

On the subject of the Cyborg outline we may release something today, seems like some of the other companies were thinking along the same lines as us

Please God! Let it be completely hoseless and not macroless-ish. The LV1 is hideous at best. I have high expectations that the new 'Borg is going to have the best of both worlds...function AND form.

i want to see it beat the crap out of the ego because on paper, the ego is looking pretty good as far as function goes.

Just went and looked around the Eclipse forum at the specs of the LV1. They said:

HPR ~120-135psi
LPR ~65-80psi

The HPR is amazing but the LPR...my 07 Cyborg runs about 35-40 psi any day of the week I kid you not. There's a reason why I still happily shoot a 6 year old marker.
