- Zoids Generations Update!  [Site]


Posted: Thursday, October 17th, 2019: 8:16 PM
    Chapter 3 of Zoids Generations is up! In this chapter Midori encounters a deadlier species of Bio Zoid, and is forced to reflect on the decisions shes made up until this point. I also went back and fixed the embarassing link issue of Chapter 2 linking to Chapter 1 instead, so if you missed out on that, you should be able to read it now!

    - The transparent parts come in both clear red and colorless clear plastic
    - It contains a large number of decals compared to the original
    - The Repackage comes with a standard pilot
    - It includes the Raven spec. changes, which means it can completely straigthen out for the CPC pose.



Bone Geno & Gun Sniper Release!

    The two bone Zoids, originally on pre-sale at Dino Expo 2019 in Japan hit Kotobukiya Direct today! 4,620 yen for the Gun Sniper and 9,020 yen for the Geno Saurer. Since they are a Koto Direct exclusive they won't be reaching stores like HLJ or AmiAmi. You can still get the kit by going through a middle man service, so let's take a look at the options. The fees are the service fee only, not the banking, domestic shipping, etc.

    Celga: $10 fee for each item, with unlimited free storage. Orders are stated to take up to 1 ~ 2 business days. In my past 10 purchases, all were placed within 24 hours.

    From Japan: $3 service fee (basic) or $7 protection plan fee (includes domestic shipping insurance, check item service, international shipping insurance). Free storage for up to 45 days. No paid extension, item is discarded after 45 days. Items are purchased within 24 hours.

    White Rabbit Express: $13.44 fee for Geno, $9.33 for Gun Sniper. 30 days free storage, $1 per day after that. Orders are processed within 24 hours, aside from weekends and holidays.

    People who have sent in orders for the items through White Rabbit Express have been courteous enough to give us the price they paid, for those who have trouble working out fees! This price is not including shipping costs.

    - Both kits ordered at the same time totaled $155.33 USD, or $230 AUD
    - Ordering just the Geno Saurer totaled $103.94

- 500th Issue Anniversary Geno Spino!

    In celebration for reaching their 500th issue, the December issue of CoroCoro will contain a massive raffle. A grand total of 1,000 winners will be selected to receive a variety of prizes, from different series that are covered by CoroCoro. Although we don't yet have an official name, one of these Zoids has been teased on CoroCoro's announcement. A Geno Spino with bright red armor.

- ZW33 Geno Spino!

    Geno Spino has popped up on the TakaraTomy Mall! The kit is scheduled to be released on November 16th for 7,700 yen retail, though you can find better prices ordering through the typical stores. Dengeki Hobby Online posted an article containing some additional pictures of it and the Gatling Fox. TT posted a Twitter video of the Wild Blast. CoroCoro has posted an early build video as well as their typical build/review video, seen below.



    CoroCoro posted a picture from the November issue, showing off the Geno Spino page. It seems this Zoid is being treated as a true swimmer! It'll be a cool new take on a bad guy Zoid. While some (Death Stinger, etc.) have traveled in the water in the past, it was hardly exemplified to be a notable gimmick of theirs. The November issue also included a 3D Art Box (seen in the same link), which they posted a video of here.

- ZW34 Gatling Fox!

    Gatling Fox is up on the TakaraTomy Mall! You can view the box art and images. It's scheduled for a November 23rd release, for 3,850 through their shop. Dengeki Hobby Online posted an article containing some additional pictures of the Gatling Fox as well as the geno. TT posted a Twitter video of the Wild Blast. CoroCoro/TT have posted mirrors of the same standard build/review video, but the TT version (seen below) includes weapon customization examples.

- Beast Liger Limited All Clear Ver.!

    CoroCoro has posted an article on their upcoming all clear Beast Liger kit. As usual, there are 100 being released through the November issue of CoroCoro. They also posted a video (seen below) showing it off in a diorama format! The builder shows how he made the giant ice sculptures behind it.



- Zoids Wild 2!  [Official]


    With another chapter of Zoids Wild 2 appearing in the November issue, we have a wave of teasers from TT and Moritya! This sample page shows off the Omega Rex and Panther. There's also an awesome shot of the Spino coming out of the water and the Sniptera ready to fire! As well as the color page for this chapter.



- Zoids Wild Zero Concept Art!  [Official]


    A huge amount of concept art has been posted for Zoids Wild Zero! First is Luc, who we saw in Episode 1 piloting a Cannon Bull. Next up is Buzz Cunningham, Leo's business partner. Next is Sally Land, the mysterious girl introduced in Episode 1. Last but not least for the current characters is our main character, Leo Conrad! We also have concepts of the city edge, showing a stark difference between the ruins and the glimmering city in the distance.

    We also have concepts for a couple of the upcoming characters! Aldridge is a Major in the Imperial Army, commanding Guiller and Luc. He pilots the Zoid "Stylaser" that specializes in laser attacks. He's voiced by Shinichiro Miki.

    Next up is Lieutenant Colonel Diaz, who pilots the Triceradogos Kai, and will be encountering Leo soon. He is voiced by Satoshi Mikami.

    On the Zoids front we have an early concept of the Spideath! This Zoid underwent radical design changes throughout the process, including a different color. It's neat seeing these variations! We also have a head and Mane Claw concept for the Beast Liger.



- Zoids CC Manga!  [Official]


    With Vol. 3 released, the twitter acc has posted some of the Battle Card Game art.
