I love it! Holds 3k+ points of 40k. Would def recommend!
Easy to assemble and very spacious. My only criticism is I don't love the doors that lay flat on the front vs. opening to the side. I will probably print hinges to fix this. But overall great product.
I already had the large 1.0, but got some money and some new minis that needed storage, so I went for the large version 2.0, and I have to say I definitely prefer it. The only thing I dislike is that I had purchased the 6 trays for my first one, and only use four or five. So I purchased my new one with 3 trays thinking I could put spare trays from my old one in the new one, but they do not fit. The new trays are much nicer, but the new box is about 1/8 inch too narrow to fit the old trays.
MagCase MINI 2.0 MDF Magnetic Carrying Case / Display Case For Miniatures
A while back I was looking for a case to help transport my skirmish game minis and my armies for smaller scale games with my mates, and this one fits the bill nicely. It was really easy to assemble and it’s very sturdy. Looking at buying a larger one for storing more minis and transporting larger armies. Definitely recommend!
I bought the middle size case and it's strong, nice, and holds my chaos knights list (2 big and 7 small) with some room to spare.
Love the case. Was easy to put together once I figured it out. Had zero instructions with the materials is my only complaint
Fits a SW Legion AAT Tank on the bottom shelf with enough space for a top shelf of small-base units. Works great for carrying around the army.
So I bought two of these big suckers along with the medium sized case, and I am loving the combination. I placed the two XL cases on my shelf in my hobby closet. I filled them up with models, packed densely on the nice metal trays, such that each army took up no more than one half of the XL case (1 of the 2 compartments). This means I can simply swap out the trays in my standard sized case for all the trays in one half of the XL case whenever I want to take that particular army to the game store and leave the other one at home. With this modular setup, I am able to easily store and transport my 7 armies (Chaos Knights, Tau, Drukhari, Harlequins, Craftworlds, Space Marines, Necrons, can you tell I've been doing this a while?) across the 2 XL cases and 1 standard case. I will never need more than the easy to carry standard sized case to move a single army at a time, and the armies I am not carrying with me fit perfectly into the XL cases for safe home storage (important with pets). Gone are the days of shoving my "overflow" models that don't fit in my old case into cardboard boxes.
If you are someone like me who wants to be able to store and transport multiple armies, I highly recommend combining one of these XL cases with one of the smaller case sizes they offer in order to take advantage of the interchangeable trays! I think a single XL case would do the trick for anyone with a reasonably sized collection of 2-3 armies, though it's important to do some math to make sure you have enough space (both vertically and horizontally) on the trays and in the case to fit your all of models, as tall models eat up valuable tray slots.
I used to transport my models in metal toolboxes, sticking some to the "ceiling" and others on the bottom of the boxes. This was cheap, but I wanted something more modular and where I didn't have to worry about models falling off the top if I set them down too hard!
This case is spacious, and uses that space efficiently. As long as you sort your models by approximate height and do a bit of thinking about tray placement, you can cram a shocking number of things in here! The case achieves this at a better price than other similar products from different companies, without adding any disadvantages. Any "magnet trays secured in a box-like frame" style cases like this have the drawback of being more of a drop risk compared to foam tray cases, which could presumably cushion your models from impact, but the benefit you gain for taking that risk is the massive flexibility they offer. You can swap trays around and easily put different models in this thing based on what you need, whereas foam may be cut to a specific model's shape.
This thing is also sturdy, and the handle feels solid, so I'm happy to make that trade. I suppose other companies offer cases like this that can be transported in special backpacks, but I feel more confident carrying models by hand anyway. None of these types of cases are really meant for planes, but they're perfect for the car and the walk up to the game store.
I do wonder how well the velcro fasteners are going to hold up over multiple years of potential use, but they seem like a simple thing to replace if needed. Overall they are working fine and I expect they'll last quite some time since they aren't under any real strain and you shouldn't be unfastening them *that* often.
Just look at the ridiculous number of Tau I crammed in here. I used to need both hands to carry these models, which represent thousands of points more than I would realistically need for a single list anyway! It's nice being able to have your whole collection for a single force in one box so that you can field a variety of lists without needing to swap models in and out.
Finally, this case has a very special advantage that may apply to a select few of you out there: the trays are the *perfect* dimensions to fit 6 Imperial/Chaos Knight Armiger/War Dog models, OR 2 big knights + 1 smaller one. This means that you can fit a 1/10 big/small type list OR a 2/7 big/small type list into a single box that you can carry with *one hand.* This makes transporting knights really easy as long as you have a list that fits into this archetype (you would have some trouble getting more big knights in here, but you *might be able to squeeze exactly three onto one tray). I attached a picture to show how nicely this all fits.
I will write a follow-up review on the page for the XL case page soon to show you how the two case sizes complement one another.
Overall I'm very impressed, I'd definitely recommend these cases!
This is a large case that carries all of my collection and then some. The all metal trays really are the best. I was a little worried about sturdiness, but the wood is quite thick and the connections are strong. All around a great storage case for magnet users.
Overall, I’m very impressed. The design is clean, assembly is easy, and the transaction experience was top notch. I’d like to see the extra locking strips, lock in at the bottom; however, as is, they do their job of keeping the metal trays off the acrylic. Increasing the height by 1” may be beneficial as well, because if you have 4 greater Daemons, you can’t get them all in one case. For Space Marines, this is a gem! You get 3-4 trays of troops and 1-2 trays of vehicles and Dreadnoughts.
Where do I start, my original order got lost in the mail. Not only did TTS reply quickly, but worked with me to get a replacement and helped make sure the replacement arrived. Now having it built, it is solid, I got the XL and cannot wait to use the whole space.
Will recommend to my locals and will be buying more
I have over 100 painted minis, and this case is perfect for storing and transporting them. One of the best investments I ever made in this hobby, and I could not recommend it highly enough. Get one.
There is a little initial confusion on building the case as there are no instructions and just a baggie full of nuts and bolts. However, once you start its pretty intuitive to put together and the construction is smooth.
The case itself is sturdy, the acrylic front plates are pretty, and it holds a deceptively large amount of models. Easily my favorite case.
However, I do have a couple suggestions.
1 - some instructions or labels for the parts would be nice. It isn't necessary, but would definitely help facilitate builds for new customers.
2 - the wooden dowels used to kind of 'lock in' the trays to prevent sliding are a nice touch - but they dont seem to 'lock' and judt kind of sit there. They fulfill the purpose but when everything else goes together so smoothly and fits perfectly these kind of feel like an afterthought. I also could see potential damage to them and metal dowels would be better.
3 - including either the option to upgrade/purchase or have some sort of strap connections. The handle on top of the case is big and sturdy, and the case is relatively lightweight, but there is no current way to attach a strap to the case. Having a link or handles on the sides to click on a shoulder strap would be a great addition. For the smaller cases this wouldn't be an issue, but the XL would benefit from having a strap.
Overall, I love it. It's amazing and all the small suggestions are just that - small things.
