I have one of the WarMachine Battle Foam cases that I purchased about two years ago to transport my Battletech collection. The good news is the standard load out accommodated a useful portion of my mech force. The bad news is the bag has developed a big rip along one of the seams on the panel with the handle. For all their talk of load carrying ability and meeting FAA regulations the bag hasn't held up well at all. I say this because I've probably had the case out of the house about 12 times before I notice the tear.
I tried to post a review of this but they say it's saved pending review; well 5 days later they won't post a negative review.
Nice bags but disappointing long term value. They have sent me a form to get it repaired but for the cost and claims I expected better results.

Great. That's the case in the Deadzone Kickstarter.

Get one from Figures in Comfort Best cases around, I have one from over 8 years ago and still going strong. (I did own it at one time but now Erik is doing a better job)

Fair enough, that it developed a problem, but how did they offer to fix the problem?

Funny, I tried to do that same thing. Have you ever seen a bad review on the site? They need a disclaimer or something: no bad reviews are allowed to be shown.

The PRODUCTS I got were fine but they ripped me off on shipping. I was charged $30 USD yet the package arrived with a postal sticker clearly showing $12 USD and change. Not even close and "handling" can make up the $18 USD difference.

I went to buy one of the small bags but the shipping for it was to much IMHO but that being said I love the bags I have and have had no trouble as of yet. If the don't allow bad reviews you have these forum and most people here would be interested.

Shipping and handling is a sneaky way for them (or any company) to make extra cash.

@ Todosi. They sent me their standard repair reimbursement authorization form good for $10 USD bucks worth of repairs.
I have another bag not so heavily laden with the green outer and so far so good but I'll have to be much more load conscious than I would have thought necessary.
