View Full Version : So I Got One of Those Awesome Tigron K-SVR Media Kits

So...When I initially saw the announcement video for the Tigron kit I was hopeful they would allow anyone to purchase it. It was really disappointing to learn that only a few people received these for free. You guys in the UK get all the cool Wipeout related stuff!

That said, I lurk and occasionally post in the Wipeout subreddit. Late last month I got a random message on there from someone in the UK who received one of those cool levitating Tigron model press kits and wanted to sell it. Preferably to a fan of the series. I don't spend a lot of time on Reddit and there was some concern about buying something from someone an ocean away whom I don't know. But he sent me pics of the kit soon after I asked for them. Then we agreed on a price and the use of PayPal for payment and shipping confirmation. PayPal has buyer payment protection (which I didn't know about before this). So in case this turned out to be shady deal I'd get reimbursed. If anyone is extended an opportunity to buy one of these from someone I highly recommend PayPal or any service that offers buyer protection. We agree on £275 for the kit. It was hard to come up with a number since the were no other known sales to of this to use as a benchmark. But ultimately I felt the price was fair considering there weren't that many of these made.

Fortunately, the seller was great to deal with and communicated regularly and often. He sent me the tracking number the same day I sent the funds. I received the kit earlier this month and am enjoying it immensely. It's slowly rotating on my desk as I type this. I guess sometimes you can trust random people online to follow through.

Thanks. I'd love a Fury AG model.
I bought an acrylic case to cover it. Now I just need to figure out to cut a hole/small section out of it for the power cord.

Has anyone ever seen a tigron press kit on ebay yet?

also how many of them exist? 50? 100?

edit: just 20 exists based on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yFxBXTEcw8

I've kept a bit of a lookout for them, but nothing has really turned up. My understanding is that the quantity is QUITE low, and that they were handed out with considerably more discretion than the press kits. The Chances of acquisition for fans of the series seems very grim indeed. On the off-chance that someone does run across one for sale, you can fully expect them to pay through the nose for one; sellers know they're rare, and the demand is high.

My wish is that, at some point, nearly all of them will be in the possession of members of this board/devoted fanbase, and that their owners will bring them together for a single picture, as if to simulate a Tigron garage or assembly line.

EDIT: THEY DO HAVE A SERIAL NUMBER, MINE IS 001 OF 023! Which means I have the first media kit ever made out of 23!

I got extremely lucky to get mine as a total of 789 people retweeted Playstation UK's Tigron twitter competition. I had a 1 in 788 chance of winning, but it seems the wipeout gods smiled upon me ^^
I'm gonna take some more photos of my media kit at some point, if anyone wants any specific pictures of the kit (close up on the model, inside the stand etc) just give me a shout and I'll put it in my album.
