The 2007 Evil Minion is much nicer than a 2006 Minion, but ribbon eyes are prone to damage.
Marker Setup: I'm a hardcore poor gun whore, seventeen (17) markers and counting:
Orange County Bushwackers SL66
Sacramento XSV Ego 06
1 of 150 blue e-star camo Etek1
Bob Long Closer

Upgrades:
If you like a smaller grip, the Ultralite frame
Laser Eyes
Lever Clamping Feedneck
Kila Magnetic Detents
Strengths: Proto is the baby brother of DYE, and this is a Private Label gun
Weaknesses: FUSE bolt.
Review: Although this is made by the same American craftmanship as the DYE Matrix series of markers, the Proto Minion is a Private Label marker made for the Evil brand of PMI.

Originally created as the Minion 06 and based on the Proto Matrix 06, the Minion 07 takes advantage of moving the LPR from the rear to the front of the marker, making for a sleeker, smaller, tighter and lighter design.

Stylized " e " for Evil is milled into the sides, but chatter marks can be seen when one looks closer. Otherwise very simple milling but with a cheaper price tag.
Conclusion: I have decided to stay away from any marker that uses a grease style lubricant such as DOW33 or DOW55.
Due to the complex design of the FUSE bolt, the multiple o-rings and maintenance required, i do not recommend this marker to the technically challenged.
