Zoids Wild Kit Updates!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:50:06

 Omega Rex has just released, so we've got a fair amount of content for it. First off is the build video, showing the full construction process. Second is a for fun video posted by TakaraTomy Toys. Last but not least, we have a new commercial for the Zoid! The commercial shows the upcoming Kill Scythes, mantis-type Zoids.

- ZW39 Sonic Bird

TakaraTomy Toys also just posted a video of the Sonic Bird's basic walk cycle. It's interesting how the wings move with each step!


 

New Zoids Wild Zero Key Visual!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:49:33

 There's a new key visual for the Zoids Wild Zero anime series! This was recently posted on twitter, and features a gorgeous landscape with the Rising Liger, Omega Rex, and our first look at the Sonic Bird. The purple lining behind Omega Rex also bares a striking resemblance to the mysterious Zoid from CoroCoro...



 

New Zoids Wild Zero Radio Program!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:49:17

 It looks like we'll also be getting a new radio program for Zoids Wild Zero! We had one of these that ran during Zoids Wild, too. This time it'll be co-starring the two lead actresses, the voice actors of Sally and Aysel. The program will be destributed by Onsen every week on Thursday, starting from April 2nd. It's likely that we'll also see the new OP and ED of Zoids Wild Zero on this date, as the singles are releasing immediately after! The Anime ZW Twitter account posted a variation of the new key visual for this announcement, featuring just the Rising Liger.



 

ZW Battle Card Hunter Update!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:49:01

 ZW Battle Card Hunter has posted the page for their sixth volume, featuring the starting collection of cards. Some rarer cards, including the special rares are not listed here, but it's a nice start! Featuring a new variant, the Omega Rex Breaker, as well as Liger the Arthur.

 They've even posted a page discussing some of the Special Rares, which contain story content on the card. We'll get some rough translations of what these say soon! In the mean time, the page contains a scrollable image for the continuous card background.



 

Zoids Artwork!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:48:26

 Moritya posted some artwork of the Zoids Wild 2 and Liger The Arthur comic characters! It's always nice seeing clean images of the characters~ Yuji Kaida also posted some amazingly clean images of the Death Stinger ZS and Blade Liger Mirage box arts from the old Tomy motorized line. It's wonderful seeing large images of these after so long.



 

ZW Zero Concept Art!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:48:08

 This week we got concept art of Frank Land's metallized right arm. Although we've seen this in the show, it'll be interesting to see how it develops in the future.



 

ZW Customs from DHM!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:47:47

 Dengeki Hobby Magazine as posted a new custom article, featuring Zoids Wild customs based on the instruction manual variations. It goes in depth into the build process, with WIP photos and more!



 

Zoids Wild Dubtitles Page!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-03-19 03:46:06

 While Zoids Wild hasn't been picked up by any major subtitle groups, the entire series has now been dubbed in Hong Kong. As such, to tide people over until proper subs become available, a new page has been added for "Dubtitles." These are subtitles timed to the Japanese youtube release, using the script from the English Hong Kong dub. We hope to do at least 2-3 episodes a week. For now we have episodes 8 ~ 11 available. Falcarius was also kind enough to provide his original Subtitle files, which are proper translations of the episodes. This is why we didn't start at episode 1. Subs are always better!



 

CoroCoro Limited: Liger The Arthur!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-19 03:45:20

 We've seen a bit more of Liger The Arthur! Aside from appearing in the BCH commercial (below), we also saw an article from CoroCoro, which showed a profile image and one of the new images from CoroCoro Comic. We're still waiting to hear more about the application process.

 Interestingly, we received a couple of concept sketches from Moritya, the designer of the Arthur and the manga artist for Zoids Wild and Zoids Wild 2. He showed us 2 different concepts for potential ligers. Liger The Arthur was shown with a giant metallic silver lance ((Purification??) Gungnir), and matt dark blue armor. The second concept, Galaxy Liger, showed a Light Saber type Beam Sword, metallic silver equipment, clear light blue armor, red clear visor, and white matt secondary armor.



 

ZW39 Sonic Bird!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-19 03:45:02

 All info for the Sonic Bird has been released! Aside from TT Toy's post on Twitter showing off the motorized movement, CoroCoro also posted on article showing off a fancy diorama image. Its page has been posted to both the Zoids Wild website and to the TakaraTomy Mall, where you can see box art images. Speaking of, we've added pages for ZW 38 ~ 41 to the model kit section.

- Sonic Bird Build Review Video!

 A build review video has been posted for the Sonic Bird. Most interesting is that this video contains pieces of concept art of the Zoid. It also shows off some of the customization examples, as usual.



 

New Purchase Campaign!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-19 03:44:40

 Starting on March 28th, fans who buy 3,000 yen or more worth of Zoids Wild products at participating stores will receive one of three random customize weapons.

 During April (and most of March) (3/28 ~ 4/25), users will receive 1 random weapon from the Command Attack Unit Silver Titanium Ver. They can receive the Bone Blade, Grinder Cutter, or Panzer Faust. During March (starting 4/25), they can receive 1 random weapon from the same weapons unit, instead having a chance to win the Arc Knife, Auto Saw, or Square Shield. If users purchase 3,000 yen or more worth of items during both of the campaign periods, they'll receive one additional (random) item: The Mega Lance, Wing Cutter, or Attachment Frame.

 So where can you get these? There are no stores (to my knowledge) that offer guarantees. However, amiami appears to be the most likely to send out purchase campaign benefits. While HLJ occasionally gives out campaign benefits, it is usually a part of their own campaigns, and not a part of the original purchase campaign. Otherwise, keep an eye out on Yahoo Japan, etc.!



 

Zoids Wild Concept Art & Images!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-19 03:44:11

 We have a few more images from Zoids Wild and Wild Zero. First, a couple of character concepts: Fiona's Everyday Wear, and normal!Aldrich Vs. when he is piloting the Genospino. We also have a Zoids height chart, which shows some impressive scales. The Kongs are huge, and Jammingas (beside Beast Liger) are tiny. Although not necessarily a concept, the anime twitter also posted a high-res Fang Tiger image.



 

ZW Battle Card Hunter Updates!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-19 03:43:48

 Zoids Wild Battle Card Hunter has announced a new limited-time boss battle, the Stylaser Red Fort, which is only obtainable for Sebuka card users starting from March 12th. They also announced the Beast Liger Optical Camouflage Spec., as a limited boss from March 19th. The April issue of CoroCoro comes with a limited Liger The Arthur card, with special art drawn by Moritya, the manga artist. Last but not least, the latest CoroCoro Aniki comes with a special Blade Liger BCH card, using art by Ueyama!


- Zoids Coloring Pages

 Strangey, the BCH site also posted a couple of coloring pages as a PDF. A Zoids coloring book would be nice to have! But these are neat in the mean time.

- A New Expansion Looms!

 They've also recently announced the next expansion, based on Zoids Wild Zero! This expansion also includes cards of Liger The Arthur, which we see a little bit more of in the new commercial! The commercial illustrates a new collectable card style, SP cards that are strung together in a line, creating a sprawling scene. I've always been a fan of connecting card art, and this is beautifully done. They've made mentions of a story for these cards, so it'll be interesting to see how that develops. It's possible they're just referring to the scene that the cards themselves illustrate.


- 3rd Great Treasure Excavation Event!

 Although we currently lack official images, the third Great Treasure Excavation Event has been announced! This time, the limited (150 released) Zoid will be the Rising Liger Ruby, and the more common (1000 released) runner up prize will be the Gravity Cannon Unit Clear Red Ver.

- New Expansion Trailer!



 

Zoids Wild Zero Concepts!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-08 14:30:11

 We have two new concept arts for Zoids Wild Zero. The first is Fiona's attendant, Gene Eleceene Lyney, who is played by Makiko Ohmoto, and the second is the Kuwaga's cockpit interior, which includes some B-Suit sketches. As a fun side note, Gene's name is spelled the same as Fiona's true name from Zoids Chaotic Century (which in Japanese, is Eleceene Lyney). In the dub, Fiona (Fine's) true name was pronounced as Elisia Linette. As gene works for Empress Fiona, it's a clear nod towards older fans.



 

Official Zoids Wild Customs!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-08 14:28:54

 Zoids official has posted a new Zoids Wild custom, the Sniptera Bomber Spec.! This one sadly doesn't include any concept art, but it does have another post dedicated to the WIP stage, which shows off the different parts.



 

Zoids Wild Concept Art!!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-02-17 22:57:18

 We have a few new pieces of artwork for Zoids Wild! The first two are from the Wild Zero anime twitter, featuring the Land Laboratory. There's an interior and an exterior view. Then from Moritya we have pictures of Kai and Gallagher the 13th, from the Zoids Wild 2 manga! These images were originally published in the March issue of CoroCoro Comic, but it's great to see them in such crisp detail.



 

CoroCoro Limited: Liger The Arthur!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-15 10:25:51

 This month's issue of CoroCoro announced an interesting Zoid: A Rising Liger variation called Liger The Arthur. They also posted an article showing off the full image for it on their website!

 The Arthur is a limited kit obtained through a "paid service", scheduled around the May issue of CoroCoro. The closest comparison for this seems to be the Black Rhimos and Bearfighter from the NJR, where people could mail in their forms from CoroCoro to purchase the kits. Although, it's worth noting that back in the day, these kits weren't listed as "Limited", and were available to all who submitted an application. We don't know yet how limited the Arthur will be, or if Limited simply means "limited to everyone who submits an application, during the relevant time" which is certainly a possibility.

 When it was first announced, we speculated that this might refer to the Pal-Shop, also known as CoroCoro Premier (Shogakukan's mail-order site). However, after comparing the double page spread to the one where the Death Rex Purple Dragon Form was announced for rerelease (in the same shop), this seems unlikely. The Rex made multiple direct references to CoroCoro Premier, including photos of the shop. If this were going to be the outlet used, it seems likely that it would specify this clearly, as they did before. At the moment, it may end up being an actual physical mail-order item.

 On a positive note, Arthur has a lot of additional parts! This includes a basic Rising Liger with silver armor, blue secondary armor, and blue caps. The Liger also includes a new armored visor, a huge lance-like weapon on the back, new tail armor, new paw armor, etc. We'll post more as we get more information!


- CoroCoro Translation

 A special Liger with the [???] of a proud knight!!
 A super-limited new Liger that merges a Zoid with the strength and figure of a "knight" that fought in the Middle Ages!! Its armour and weapons give rise to a new storm!! Wait for entries to open in the May issue!!

 Zoids development team comments: If you take Zoids, which are mecha + lifeforms, and add the coolness of armoured knights... A Liger even greater than expected has been born!!

 An Evo Blast gimmick that pierces everything...!?
 Its body uses the strongest materials in history...!?

 The next issue will contain a special manga featuring Liger The Arthur!!

 A new Coro Coro limited Zoid will be offered as a limited-quantity paid service for applicants in the May issue!! Liger The Arthur sets out for the front!!

 We've learned that a new Liger with new parts and new colours will be sold as a Coro Coro limited! It's a super masterpiece that fans and even beginners will definitely want to obtain!

* Translations were done by Falcarius! Thank you! Because some characters were not visible in the source image, there are a couple of words missing. These will be updated as soon as a personal copy of CoroCoro has been received.

ZW40 Gravity Cannon Unit!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-15 10:22:49

 Today, TakaraTomy revealed the source of the brown Bone Blade (mistakenly referred to earlier as the Horn Blade) we saw. It comes from the brand new Gravity Cannon Unit and the Dash Breaker Unit. These weapon sets include a series of brand new weapons in a bronze color, and a complete rerelease of the earlier weapon sets in black instead of silver.

It contains "new weapons" (previously released at WHF in silver, but not in a wide public release) and "rerelease" weapons, which are from the Buster Radar Unit.

ZW39 Sonic Bird!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-15 10:21:41

 When the Dash Breaker Unit went up on the TakaraTomy Mall, they slipped in two cheeky teaser images. These images featured a brand new type of Archeopteryx Zoid, featured wearing the weapons unit. This Zoid is the ZW39 Sonic Bird, scheduled for release in late April.

 TakaraTomy Toys over on Twitter also posted some teaser images of the default Zoid, giving us a great look at it. Although it uses the Gilraptor body there's an extraordinary number of new parts, including fully foldable wings, and arm pegs that've been repurposed as gun mounts.
