    Unfortunately, only the black variant will be in the soft touch rubber finish (at least to start with) the other colours are only available with the 'Fisher Price toy' style gloss finish.

    An interesting, unusual look and a pleasant change from the now standard black boxes.

    I know not many people like the look of this case but I do, it's got an aliens vibe about it and would make a great aliens themed mod.

    Nope. There aren't even any fans in the roof at all, just an optional pair of mounts. To be fair, it's more of a quiet chassis than a high airflow one, and four fans small enough to fit in those vents would be noisy and/or ineffective, especially given how far forward they are.

    It's the same skeleton as the Aerocool DS cube and Xigmatek Aquila.

    Internally, the design is pretty good, they just dressed this one in fugly clothes.

    Reminds me of Hellboy every time I see it. Looks awful though.
