- Zoids Wild


    Zoids Wild launched in June 2018 with a number of new Zoids. Sporting brand new designs for almost the entire franchise, it flew off the shelves in stores and has been an overwhelming success to start with. It's accompanied by anime, manga, and multiple games under the same name.

Box Commentary

    These statements are found on the box of each Zoid.

    What are Zoids...?
    Mechanical organisms with metal bodies, born from a single Zoid Core that arrived on Earth tens of thousands of years ago. They come in a wide range of forms such as animals and dinosaurs. They stand at the summit of the ecosystem, and are feared by humans. For a long time, they slept deep within the earth, but when certain humans excavated and reconstructed them, they appeared on the surface once again.

    What is a Wild Blast...?
    A special ability hidden within Zoids, which activates when the feelings of the Zoid and its rider synchronise and their fighting instincts rise to their maximum level. The Zoid's physical abilities increase greatly and it takes on a more aggressive form - for instance, hidden weapons may appear.

- List of Kits

    These kits don't all have reviews up, but will have stock photos, box information, etc.











- Limited Editions

    This section is defined a little more ambiguously, as any kit released outside of the main model kit line. This includes contest limiteds, event exclusives, etc. It does not include CoroCoro limiteds, which have their own section below.





- CoroCoro 100 Piece Limited

    These kits are released through CoroCoro Comic raffles, usually in the form of silver peels. Originally each one had 100 kits released, making them very rare and expensive. Some have received limited rereleases through other means.





- Series Discussion


    Zoids Wild was launched in 2018, as a new series aimed at younger audiences. It is one of the largest reboots Zoids has ever seen, reaching almost every listed goal from the original press release. That aside, it has also been overwhelmingly popular with Japanese audiences, and though the series has mixed reviews for overseas fans, many still collect and enjoy the figures. Wild isn't just a toy, however. It has a strong gimmick, supporting anime, manga, and games, and is marketed in a very intuitive way. Below we'll cover many aspects of the series, and what you can expect from the model kits.

- Excavate and Discover!

    The packaging is all themed around the concept of excavating and rebuilding your Zoids. You open the box and immediately see a brown camou-colored cardboard, which you pull out from the box. These are formed into several partitions, with L-shaped tabs on the end to hold the motor. Pull those tabs back (to line up with the rest of the cardboard) to easily remove your motor without tearing up the packaging!

    Instruction manuals, known as the "Book of Restoration" contain information on the Zoid, where in the world it was excavated, and assorted details. These are interesting factoids not mentioned elsewhere in the series. For example, the Fang Tiger was originally discovered by accident, because its highly conductive skeleton became magnetized and disrupted an adveturer's compass!


    The instructions are laid out in an easy to understand manner. A fold-out page in the front includes a 'parts guide' where you can take the pieces out of the baggies and line them up on this diagram to keep track of which part is which. It also makes it easier to distinguish similar parts, but the kits are easy enough to assemble just by looking at the instructions. Small notes are littered throughout the manual to help younger fans build their kits.

- Build!

    Zoids Wild kits come in baggies of parts, which have been pre-cut from the sprues. This step has made a huge difference, not only in the build time but in the accessibility for younger audiences. You don't have to get your tools together to build a kit, or make sure you have glue on hand. The kits are ready to go, no matter where you're at. With a lower part number averaging 30 ~ 70 pieces you can sit down anywhere and build a kit. Baggies are also designed with an easy-tear tab that lets you instantly open the bags. The average build time is 20 ~ 30 minutes.

    Two downsides that may affect older fans is that this pre-trimming often means visible sprue marks, which are cut too close to be sanded down without affecting the shape of the part. The kits also have many hollow pieces, such as the inner legs. This is quite normal for model kits of this caliber, but perfectionists may find themselves annoyed by it.

Contents:There are certain contents that are available in every kit.
    - Motor (Windup for Small kits, Battery-operated for medium, large, and Extra Large)
    - Parts Baggies (Bag A: Skeleton, Bag B: Armor, Bag S: Special Parts)
    - Decals
    - Rubber Caps
    - Instructions

- Skeletal Design!

    Wild kits are all based around a base skeleton, which armor is added to at the end of the process. This is an interesting design choice. It's quite different from older Zoids. It allows Wild kits to share body parts while still making different species look like an entirely new creation. For example, Pachykedos and Gilraptor share skeleton parts with some unique parts interspersed.
