Review - Matsudo Tectonics Captain: Raiden #2 miniature figure for DreadBall from Mantic Games

Every miniature in the DreadBall Ed2 base set is either a one-piece cast, or pre-glued multi-piece, so you don't need any preparations before your first game. The glue doesn't show, most of the miniatures are so finely crafted it's hard to realise whether or not it is a multi-piece cast. Most of the joins are hidden well, and that also helps the pieces to stay together. I haven't seen any of these minis come apart, unless they were put to a heavy stress.

There is no flash on the miniatures, but the mould lines are visible, and they will be need removal before you start painting.

The player figures are bigger than most previous teams, they are comparable in size to the orx and grogans. Their dynamic poses cause this big miniatures to reach beyond their own hex, and this might be problematic in some situations.

All the miniatures in the retail set are glued on their transparent bases. The glue is uneven, many of the miniatures are tilted, and they are not always aligned forward, and this is especially problematic as the new bases have a distinct front edge.

The minis are probably glued to their bases because they do not stay there if I push them on. Some of the minis are glued in strange angles, some of them are glued with not enough glue, so they fall off. The superglue used unfortunately mars the transparent acrylic material, and I couldn't find an easy way to remove the glue without damage.

The problem seems to be that the hole in the DreadBall Ed2 base is slightly bigger than the one of the original. The original bases take the new minis easily, without glue. You push them in, they stay in. If the new bases weren't better in every other way, I'd just use the old ones instead.

The miniatures from the Kickstarter pack came separate from their bases, so you need to glue them first before you start playing. This also means that the Kickstarter Exclusive miniatures are all separate.
