- Spino Liger Introduction

    Spino Liger was mentioned in Smack Zoids! B-Part, in the February issue of Dengeki Hobby Magazine, 2002. Not much is known about this Zoid, but it's theorized that it could be the Blade Liger MK-II "Type B," as this version sits between the Blade Liger MK-II and the Buster Liger; the same as the Spino Liger. This is the image we chose to use for it, but we've grayed it out to emphasize that this is not confirmed.

- History

    The Spino Liger's concept was conceived at the same time as the development of the Ultimate Liger. It was an improved version of the Blade Liger, with stronger equipment focused on charging finishing moves. Unfortunately the added weight of its design was thought to make it relatively easy for the Zoid to overheat, due to the core trying to consume the excess energy. This was attributed to the Shield Liger base, which was a fairly large, bulky Zoid in its own right, and didn't have a core powerful enough to support the additional weight.

    With the overheating issue, the Spino Liger remained conceptual. Its development data was used in the schematic for the Buster Liger, and its design concept later inherited by the Liger Zero Schneider. So while the Zoid is never pictured for certain, it played an important role in the advancement of the Liger series.
