- Zoids Official Fan Book 2 Update!


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:47:40

 3 more chapters have been added to Official Fan Book 2! In these chapters we meet the Geno Breaker and Death Stinger, and both Zoids prove to be a terrifying force. We only have 3 story chapters left in this book, including the epilogue, but they're shaping up to have some awesome doom and gloom.



 

- New Custom Page, Gilvader Ouroboros Spec.!


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:47:29

 I've posted a first ever custom to the site! A custom of the WF kit Gilvader Modoki. Although I love starting custom projects, finishing them is... uhh, a lot rarer, haha. So for now customs are linked at the bottom of the model kits page, until such a time that there are enough to warrant their own section on the site. Hopefully more will follow later in the year! This was a great first kit to work with.



 

- HMM Model Kit Section Update!


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:47:12

 A huge update has been rolled out for the HMM Model Kit section! This section has now been updated to mirror what we've got going on with the Zoids Wild section, where every thumbnail is now clickable, even if we don't have a review for that kit. Reviews are now on a separate page, which you'll see linked at the top of each individual Zoid's page. Their main page, however, is for the official product info and includes a full stat list (almost all translations are courtesy of Falcarius!), as well as the stock images, box art, etc.

 This section is still undergoing some fine tuning. We've still got a couple pages to fix and upload. A select few Zoids have story bits translated by Falcarius (Saber Tiger Gold, Blade Liger Leon, etc.) In the future I'll be posting google translated stories for the rest (each page has the appropriate warning), but this will come much later. There are also plans to update with blog entry information, relevant links, and additional promotions that aren't covered on the official pages, like Jager's special painted claws.

- ZW34 Zero Grizis!


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:46:52

CoroCoro has revealed the final boss of Zoids Wild, Zero Grizis! It is one of two Zoids that begin a new type, with a unique appearance. This begins the return of ancient Zoids, and we can assume that the Grizis is going to be a massive kit. Hopefully rivaling the large Zoids from older lines!

"Zoids are roughly divided into two "seeds." Evolution Zoids, such as the Rising Liger, and Weapon Zoids, such as the Omega Rex! But now... "ZERO", a new species that strikes out to challenge those two species, has been launched from ancient times!"

- The Third Faction

 Through these two Zoids we've learned a lot about the upcoming third faction. We'll list them all below.

 ⚫ Zero Zoids have been excavated from ancient times, with the Phantoth found in an underground temple. It is unclear what the true origin of these unique Zoids is!

 ⚫ In this new type of Zoid, armor and bone are integrated into a single form! This means that their limbs lack a skeletal base, and instead take after a purely mechanical look.

 ⚫ Zero Zoids are notable for their reactor cores, which aren't found in other Zoids. These cores pump a substance called Bio-Acid in the Phantoth lore through Reactor Lines, which form an arterial pattern throughout the entire body. This substance acts as an energy source for the Zoids, and it's rumored that Grizis' reactor core has enough power to destroy the planet.

 ⚫ Normal Z-O Visors have been replaced by unusual, circular-patterned visors. The Phantoth refers to these as eye brains.

 ⚫ Unusual nodules appear to stick out of the back of their heads. The Phantoth refers to these as Mind Horns, and they're present on both of the existing Zero Zoids.



 

- ZW33 Zero Phantoth!


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:46:32

 Just before we saw the major reveal for the Zero Greizis, the Zero Phantoth was announced! Originally, we heard of this Zoid just being called the "Phantoth", but it follows the same scheme: White with purple trim, unusual eyes, horns, etc. So let's get into what we know of this Zoid! You can view the images and box art for it over on the TakaraTomy Mall.


 An elephant-type Zoid that suddenly appeared from an underground temple area, a land unexplored by humans. Its existence is a mystery that doesn't belong to any power. It has unique limbs, which lack a bone frame, and reactor lines that resemble blood vessels running through its entire exterior. The venom Bio-Acid flows and flickers inside of them. The destructive power of the A-Z Sling Bombs that are thrown by the Power Nose are comparable to modern-day heavy weaponry.

Excavation Site: Northwest of Continent, Underground Temple

 It has been excavated several times by mankind, who discovered it by chance, but one after another those people were killed by the poison of the Bio-Acid as they worked. Therefore, it was feared as the Zoid of Taboo, and they were compelled to give up the restoration of this machine. It's said that there is no one in all of mankind that has completed its excavation.

- Liger The Arthur Released!


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:46:00

 Liger The Arthur has been officially released! This kit saw some shipping delays as a result of the pandemic, so not all arrived at their destination on time. The kit came with additional instructions, with a few story and weapon notes. A special video for it was also posted on CoroCoro Channel, featuring a customized gold Arthur!



Azure Knight

 A lion-type Zoid that has been modified from the Rising Liger, as a machine used by Arthur Lancelot. It specializes in charging attacks using the A-Z Arthur Lance equipped to its back. Each part, including the Arthur Armor and Arthur Frill, has had a special coating applied to reduce the damage from enemy attacks and improve its defensive power. Its Evo Blast, Gungnir, uses the penetrating power of the A-Z Arthur Lance and strikes at the enemy in a straight forward line. The special shape of the A-Z Arthur Lance also supports sweeping attacks.

Arthur Armor
 An armor with a special coating for increased durability. It has excellent stealth capabilities.

Arthur Frill
 Silver frills with a special coating that increases their durability. They also protect the rider.

Arthur Helm
 A special helmet that can intercept physical attacks from enemy Zoids. It's said that the dome on top of the head, used to protect the rider, expresses its loyalty to its rider.

A-Z Arthur Lance
 A high-penetration lance that can concentrate the force of impact onto a single point. With the edges protruding in all directions, it's also possible to land slashes on the enemy when swinging it downwards.

A-Z Machinegun
 An artificially-made machinegun. It can mow down small Zoids.

Claw Guard
 Armor that reduces the impact of the claws when they make contact with an enemy. By extending forward, it's also possible to land a strong impact pinpoint.

High-Performance Radiation Fins
 A part that instantly releases the heat accumulated in the body.

Impact Revolver
 A magazine that gives explosive power when using the A-Z Arthur Lance.

Rising Unit
 A back unit designed for arming and strengthening the Beast Liger.

Spear Tail
 Armor for the tail that is designed for physical attacks. The lighter weight makes it easier to swing around.

The second article talks about the Wild Blast gimmicks, with plenty of photos. In the HMM version of Wild Liger, the radiator fins on the legs can also open up, like the earlier Blade Liger.

EMS No Longer Delivering To USA


Posted: 2020-04-22 21:09:02

 While we've known for a while that there were significant delays in shipments due to the Corona Virus, Japan Post announced today that they would be expanding the list of affected countries on April 24th. SAL was entirely halted earlier this month, but the US and several other countries are to join the list of those unable to receive packages through EMS as well. Japan Post will not be accepting new EMS shipments, and a number of shipments that had already been sent are being returned to the senders if they are unable to deliver them. This includes packages from HLJ and other stores.

 Before purchasing a Zoid from Japan, please look into whether it is shipping with SAL or EMS, as you may not be able to receive your item. Also check with your store or deputy service of choice to see what their policies are regarding item storage. Many have extended their storage limits due to the crisis. It seems that DHL packages are still shipping, so you may have better luck using Amazon JP, as that is their shipping service of choice.

 

Zoids Official Fan Book Update!


Posted: 2020-04-22 21:08:48

 An update has rolled out for the next chapter of Zoids Official Fan Book Vol. 2! This chapter introduces Irvine, and the Gojulas the Ogre. As many of you may know, Keiji Fujiwara, the Japanese voice actor of Irvine and Jack Cisco, passed away on April 12th. It is only fitting that this was the next chapter to be added. He provided the voice for one of the most famous and beloved characters in Zoids, as well as numerous other roles in popular series. We wish all the best to those mourning his loss.



 

Zoids Wild Dubtitles Update!


Posted: 2020-04-22 21:08:35

 Episodes 12 and 13 have been added to the dubtitles page for Zoids Wild. Episode 13 is generally where everyone agrees this series makes its mark. It sets into motion many of the stronger story aspects of Wild, so if you've not given the series a chance so far, we recommend at least watching this episode. On the note of watching, we've also changed it from the youtube release to a dual-audio blu-ray release, generously provided by Mecha! So you can truly appreciate the fights that take place. We will update our older files to be timed to these files shortly.
