    I know I've seen this discussed before, not sure what the consensus was though. I want to pick up one of these guys (been hunting here in Hawaii with no luck) but not sure which one to go for.

    Cast your vote and then post the reason for your choice. Which one is better in altmode/botmode? Better head sculpt? Availability/price? Any opinions are much appreciated.

    I think they're both great and getting both is worth it. It's one of the best plane molds made so far. There unique enough to. Same prices but might be harder to get Space Case since he's exclusive so go for him first.

    Both are fantastic toys. If you get both, you can have them like some kind of gate guardians or something. That's what it's like for my Space Case and Terradive.

    If I had to pick one, it would be Space Case, but yeah, they're both really good.

    Yes!! Also mythological imagery from the Asian myth...or at least I think it's asian. The info escapes me at the moment.

    Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Terradive. I picked up Space Case on impulse mostly because I bought the other three Target exclusives and I love him! Can't explain how a new head and deco makes me like the figure so much more, but it does!

    Colorwise space case is hit and miss, in plane mode it looks cool, in robotmode the white legs look horrible...what was hasbro's colorist thinking? White tights are cool???

    I prefer terradive because of the better robot mode , but both are essentially the same mold

    Well, Terradive is hard to find over here but I'm just not a fan of the head remold or the colour scheme on SC.

    Is there suppose to be a conscensus on something that is subjective?

    Both are nice, but if your planning on doing any customizing go with Terradive. Space Case is made out of a weaker translucent blue plastic and needs to be handled more carefully, but some of the paint (silver tattoos and red details) are very stubborn to remove. I had to resort to using a wire brush to remove them. Also, be careful of the front wings, they can break, or the surrounding chest piece can break. If your aware of this, and use a little extra care, then you should be fine.

    Space Case's light piping is pretty badass. I haven't picked up Terradive, myself, but got SC the other day and opened him last night. I dig the little guy. My only qualm is one of his arm joints needs some polish to help it stay on better. I may end up getting his yellow brother from another mother as well.

    Just because I hate Terradive's colors, I'm going with Space Case. Great mold though.
