Let's get spooky! / Help me complete a set!

Anyone want to play airball?

After years of owning and selling paintball markers, usually at a loss, I've finally got a collection that I'm pretty proud of. Mostly impulses, though, I've been venturing into new categories. Anyhow, I've lately been in touch with my punk roots and thought you guys might enjoy the eye candy. In addition, I thought some of you pros might be able to lend me a hand on getting some information on the Gothic Spyder...I'm told that's the only other marker of the "Gothic" series. Is that true? How many were made? What kind of Spyder? When? Help!
Anyways,
On with the show!

Man a impulse was the 2nd marker I ever owned


Hated it

Mainly because it was a full body and red so I called it the brick which is what it felt like I was carrying around the field

Yeah! You got your 'cocker Gothic finally. Looks great.

P.S. If you are getting your spooky on, you should totally add the Graveyard and Vampyre to this eye candy thread - just sayin'

How can I say no?
The vampire actually sold immediately. If you notice the frame, pnues, and a few other things on my Gothic came from the Vampyre. Here's the quick story:

Guy responded to my WTB thread looking for a Gothic Autococker.
I asked around here and was given quotes on what the cocker was worth. The guy declined my offer and by the time I realized that the quotes were off by a substantial amount, he had already sold it locally.
Fast forward, I'm talking to a guy on Facebook and he ends up being the "local guy" and new owner of the Gothic. He removes the crappy stuff and pumps it.

Meanwhile, my hunt continues when I'm told about the Vampyre and Graveyard by the same dude. He wants the Vampyre and I want the graveyard, so we work out a deal to get them both shipped from the Netherlands or something.
I immediately shipped off the Vampyre to him.
He pumps it and decides to offload the gothic for other projects and puts all of the mechanical parts onto the Gothic and I bought it off of him. Haha.

Here we are now.

I recall a time, way back, when the Impulse was "King Daddy" on the hill. Say what you want about them now in retrospect, but anyone playing at the time realized what a step forward and indicator of our future they were. Most def. left a mark on the sport....much like the spikes on those markers would do to me (or an airball bunker )

A long long time ago I had a gothic Rainmaker. Interesting gun to say the least...

I had heard a rumor about the Gothic Rainmaker but, no one seems to remember it existing (other than you, now) and Google has nothing on it. I'd love to see a picture of anything proving it's existence, so I know what to look for.
I'm also on the hunt for a Gothic Spyder.

Good grief, that was a LONG time ago, probably around 2003-4. I doubt I have any pictures of that gun. Not sure if it was actually an FBM gothic or just a gun that had been drilled and had spikes put into. IIRC Rainman had had his hands on it at some point and may have "gothic'd" it.

This one isn’t my one, but I helped out with a lot of the secondary parts on this one. I will wait to see if the owner wants to chime in, just so he doesn’t get hounded about it.
