- 1st Edition Zoids

    During the NJR period a series of Zoids were released to compliment the Zoids Battle Card Game. These Zoids were the 1st edition release. While they were physically the same as any other Zoid released thereafter, first editions came with a special card for the game, which was unique to the 1st editions and had an image of their box art.

    I haven't verified which Zoids specifically have been released as a 1st Edition, but my speculation is that it was the entire NJR line up until the release of the Fan Book EX and BLOX Zoids.

    I'd also like to note that there are Fuzors and Genesis Zoids with a red sticker on their box. These kits were known to have come with a Zoids Scramble card, usually featuring a stock image of the model kit over a generic background.

Identifying a 1st Edition

    The 1st Edition Zoids are distinguished by a red octagon sticker on their box. It is important to note that this sticker is red. There are also orange stickers and yellow stickers. Presumably, the orange and yellow stickers are the same thing -- a box that contains a simple advertisement for other Zoid models. They are not 1st Editions.

    These stickers are relatively small. Be sure to note the text on it, do not mix them up with other large red logos commonly found on boxes, such as oversized Tomy logos and Imperial insignias.

Promotional Posters

    Some boxes have a very similar sticker. It is almost identicle except for color and text. This comes in red, orange, and yellow, just that I know of, and many of the NJR kits were rereleased with this poster inside. It is a single side fold with the back being blank. It appears to be the same for all kits that I've been able to verify. Below is a scan of the poster and the sticker. Remember to pay attention to the text!
