    Posted: 21 July 2006 at 1:46am

Everyone knows that I am pretty much the local Spyder supporter here, and in browsing the kingman forums, I ran across a new Spyder prototype. This>Electra w/ eyes...

Woah...

I don't know how many have seen this yet, but I just figured I'd throw it out there.

Specs:

They are electromechanical (so no electropneumatic), so blow back.
They run at 200PSI with a new valve
There is a on/off
Eyes, of course
2 pieces barrel
And you can change color with body kit

The VS2 is with a normal frame
The VS3 with the rocking trigger Frame

I really think Kingman is working their way up into the world. Thoughts?

Nah. Raven's going under, I think. No one wants to spend $400 on a hyped Spyder.

They are. There is already "subliminal messaging" in their ad site, www.spyder.tv

If you look just below "products," it flashes "VS?".

I'm getting anctious. I hope it's affordable...

You can get it here...


     ^^^ Thats the final product... You saw (like you said) the prototype... As you can tell they changed a few things...

EDIT: The final product looks like crap... The prototype was much better looking IMO...

Are you sure? I don't think it's the Electra. I'm pretty sure this is a new thing...

A mod on the Kingman forums posted this.

Actually, wouldn't it be possible that DeTrevni's pic is actually another marker? I mean, The one on ActionVillage does look like a regular Electra, but the other one looks really different.

EDIT: On second thought.. yeah it's possibly the same, if you think about it this way: They create the features on a prototype, and then add those features in one of the current models (Pilot, Fenix, Electra).

We'll see what comes up.

I think this is the real deal. Go to www.spyder.tv and look under the word "products." VS? flashes under it a few seconds after it loads.

See?

This is wayyyy too elaborate for a simple Electra upgrade...

Some more news on it from PBnation. More pics too. I think it's gorgeous for a Spyder. If it pulls through at a good price, Kingman may have a serious winner in the mid-end range.

That thread on pbNation practically confirms it's a new series of markers.

Ohhhhhhh......

I thought you calling shens on the entire concept.

 

edit: this site was linked in the PBnation post. Just for more info. It says it's supposed to be out in mid August. Once again, we'll see.
