Review: I finally got my Timmy. Picked it up on ebay for 526 shipped...with a halo and 68/45, though.

Anyway, immediately the Intimidator struck me as...big! For some reason, it seems much smaller in pictures, and until you hold it, you'll never really be able to comprehend how big it really is. However, this isn't necessarily a weakness, as it makes up for it in extreme performance. Also, I love the looks of 2k2 style intimidators, even the LCD membrane (which some can't stand) and the extensive milling really catches attention at the local field.

First shots:
At first, I was somewhat disappointed with this gun. Airing it up, it already had a leak. I opened it up to see what was going wrong. Sadly, the leak was coming from the solenoid. However, it was a used gun and it was bought on ebay. For some, this would be a major setback, having to send it in to BLAST to get the solenoid fixed or replaced, however, I like to tinker with things. So, I removed the solenoid and opened it up *I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU MESSING UP YOUR INTIMIDATOR. IF YOU TRY ANYTHING THAT I EXPLAIN HERE, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CORRECT DISASSMBLY AND REASSMBLY OF YOUR MARKER. NOT MINE.* First off, I noted that only the top two screws need be removed, and by top two I mean the side opposite of the power inlet cable. Removing these, you will see a small, round metal shaft. If you do this, don't lose anything inside the cap of the solenoid, you will need all of it. Anyway, I removed the air barbs and popped up the metal bar by sticking a small allen wrench in there and using a bit of leverage. To my surprise, it was much like an Autococker three-way, and the problem was instantly solved-chunks of pb shells in the noid. So, cleaning and relubing this shaft, I reassembled the solenoid and marker and aired it back up. Success!

After this long and painstaking ordeal, I got some paint and a fill, and went to see how fast I could empty my Halo. In about 15 seconds, all I could hear was my drive cone spinning, and I'm not too fast at walking.

I used the gun during practices to get the feel of it, and I have to say it is somewhat heavy as compared to my Piranha Evo. However, there is literally no kick, and it seems as if though the gun shoots before you even pull the trigger. (And no, my timmy was not bouncing.)
Conclusion: Overall, I would definitely recommend this marker. However, be aware that you might need some basic technical abilities if the 'noid ever gets clogged. It is a bit heavy, but you get used to it quick. A bit pricey, but definitely worth it. If you're higher in tournament games, go for the Timmy. And if you have to, get a better tech that can handle taking apart small objects.
