I'm glad more companies are playing towards newer players by making player packs. I remember when I started I had no idea what I needed.
i thought i looked liked upgrade ion too.

Question: who's shot this? I only ask as everyone seems to know that this is "trash" or "junk". I'm willing to bet that this thing won't be revolutionary and grow the sport tenfold but I also try to not needlessly condemn something I have no experience with. The overt negativity/borderline-hipsterism that seems to follow every announcement of something new is as tiresome as unflagging fanboysim. H. I think there's at least a slight chance this could be a decent starter marker for new players and I, too, appreciate that Kee is doing a "starter pack" to get kids on the field faster. Wish they coulda got a tank in there at the price point...

Though it's inarguable that this thing is ugly. I think crazyorigin nailed it.

Appreciate it, and yeah, that wasn't directed at everyone.

it also shame that people look at picture as one side and not as whole to many see picture they do not look at picture as whole but one side or one part of it. if does turn out to be good gun good for them. but if just basic gun that get no upgrades not easy to swap parts out to fix people will walk away. i hope they make so you can do upgrades or have easy swap out parts to fix it.

Named the ICON so people would confuse it with an Ion.


This is why I have a copy of Transmorphers.

WRONG.

Bruce Boxleitner is why you have a copy of Transmorphers .

Maybe, but I just figured there was someone at NPS/KEE who likes naming guns "Icon".

I believe this was the same reaction when GOG emerged. Or better yet, when they first showed off the ENMY...and we all know how that worked out.

Back on topic, it does look ugly, but maybe it's light and a brings younger players to the sport. If it does, I'm all for it.

it's probably just trademarked and needs to be used every so often to be kept trademarked.
