    This is the pictorial review for DOTM target exclusive deluxe Spacecase.

    I wont go over the figure itself as you can look for reviews on HFTD Terradive but this time around the legs seems to be a little bit tighter on the waist balljoint.

    One thing to note, as I am sure with these other target exclusives, no new weapons for mechtech and no added mechtech ports, which I think is kind of a bummer as I think Spacecase should have had a gun this time around and not the trident.

    Please forgive mine as it has some spotty paint apps and a partial finger print on the wing flap that comes around the chest :( 

    Overall though I think this is a great new deco and retool. Looks great with any of the other updated or homaged G2 figures.

    Just sucks he comes 1 to a case.

    Again, I feel and wished they had included a mechtech gun. One that I think works great is Topspins as it is almost the same color and when deployed, it makes almost a trident head but can be a gun at the same time.

    Wow, between the new head and fancy deco scheme he doesn't even look like a Terradive retool. The art of his head looks a bit doofy, though.

    At least the trident here goes with Spacecase's colors. Terradive's doesn't match at all.

    Wait what the hell did they paint the cockpit yellow?! Also are the hip ball joints any tighter?

    Yep. Which is weird, considering that he has yellow lightpiping.

    And the hip joints were slightly loose on mine. The only reason I'm bothering to tighten them is my OCD about that sorta thing, as he has no problem supporting his own weight.

    And I agree with everything said in the review. I'd also like to say that, whether Space Case or Terradive, everyone should own some version of this mold. It is easily one of, if not the, best deluxe molds to come out of HftD. Hell, just get both. It's not every day that I double dip on a mold, and I don't regret it one bit.

    Interesting little guy. Think I might get him.

    I agree that coming with something other than a trident would set him apart from Terradive a little more, but isn't he still capable of the thruster-cannon hand?

    I want it. Did you get him at retail or online? In addition to your upgraded Skyjack, I'd have liked to have seen him alongside ROTF Hooli- *ahem* Fearswoop. Unless you don't own which I suppose I necessarily won't be surprised.

    I wish I could find out if these semi-clear guys are going to get a UK distribution or not.

    dissapointed that he uses clear plastic and doesn't resemble his old self in any way. might pick him though, I really like the mold and tighter joints is an excellent change.

    Got mine today, had to get it pulled from the back though as my Target didn't have a shelf for it yet. I really like the clear smokey plastic on him. Also, this may just be a small qc issue for me, but not only did I have to shave down the right arm peg to get it to fit in, but some of the plastic on that dark red piece has gotten or started out with stress marks, so actually be careful with that color plastic. It may just be like RtS Wreck-Gar's plastic in that the color of the plastic shows stress easier, but it won't hurt to take some caution.

    I'm not feeling it for the headsculpt, it looks really silly to me, even if he is "Spacecase".
