HMM Dibison Marking Plus Ver.!!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-08 14:31:30

 Kotobukiya has announced a reissue of the Dibison, in the form of a Dibison Marking Plus Ver.! Like other Marking Plus variations, it contains new decals, a standard pilot, and clear colorless parts in addition to the standard color. It will also contain a new silver color for the horns and hooves, based on the silver used for the Gojulas Gunner. It is scheduled to release in July, for a retail price of 9,800 yen, but you can find it cheaper in your online store of choice.

 To set this Zoid apart, the Dibison is using the old registration number, RBOZ-006 instead of RZ-031. The decal set is the same as the Saber Tiger, with the exception of the Republican logos and registration numbers (which include both RBOZ and RZ designations.) You can read all about it in Kotobukiya's LABO article.


- HMM Model Kit Reissues

Aside from Dibison, Kotobukiya also announced a few reissues for July. This includes the Iguan (4,200 Yen), which is seeing its first ever reissue, along with the Gojulas Cannon Set Customize Parts (4,800 Yen) and the Berserk Führer Repackage (8,800 yen). There are no physical differences between this Repackage and the last one released, but Kotobukiya decided to reissue it so soon because of how fast it sold out the last time. It will supposedly include some decals that were missed the last time, though.

 As a final footnote, Kotobukiya mentioned that they'll soon be making more progress on the prototype (Wild Liger) displayed at Wonder Festival last month.



 

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.

Zoids Generations Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-02-25 00:15:50

 Chapter 4 of Zoids Generations is now available! In this chapter we begin to hear some important questions, like why Bio Zoids are attacking and devouring other Zoids, and what Seki may know about the situation. We're also introduced to the gorgeous Empressa and her pilot, Sona, the princess of the country of Ya Han, who has arrived to investigate the sudden surge of Bio Zoids.

 As a general reminder, our Zoids Generations chapters use automatic translation, so contain a decent number of errors! They are provided as an easier way for readers to get the gist of what's happening in the story, until such a time that better translations become available. Thank you for your understanding!



 

Webcomic Revamp: The Twin Witches!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-02-21 22:38:23

 This isn't exactly new content, but after a few years we've decided to redo our existing webcomic material. The first redux is the Geno Breaker Jet comic, The Twin Witches! When we first posted this comic it was riddled with errors. The whole page has been revamped, and the video reposted with a new, updated version. This should fix all of the errors that were previously present on the page. The manga section has also been renamed from the Zoids Web Comic to the proper name, ZOIDS Delusional War Record. As usual, our translations were done by the amazing Falcarius!

Zoids Chaotic Century Manga Returns!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-02-17 22:58:44

 After a long wait we have readded Chaotic Century to the manga section! This down time was extended due to the sudden release of the digital books, but it has been quite some time since then. I appreciate everyone's patience while the manga was down. I know many people have a great deal of interest in this series, but are unable to read Japanese. If you are interested in owning physical copies of the books (in Japanese), please consider purchasing! It is available on AmazonJP and many other stories that handle printed media. If you can't find it, please use our contact page and I would be happy to help you locate a physical copy of the book!



 

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.

 The Gravity Cannon Unit is scheduled to release on March 28th for 1,100 yen and comes with the equipment listed below. 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. The Buster Radar Unit originally came in silver, so these weapons sport a new black coloring.

  Panzer Faust x2
  Power Rifle x2
  Square Shield x2
  Wing Cutter x2

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.



 

ZW38 Omega Rex!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-15 10:19:17

 The Omega Rex has shown up on the TakaraTomy Mall, scheduled for a March 28th release for 7,700 yen (tax included)! On a fun note it seems that the Rex's particle cannon, which we've known about for a while, uses a stunning green color. It'll be interesting to see how it is used in the show, whenever it shows up. CoroCoro also has a page showing off a new diorama style image, citing the particle cannon as a weapon that can blow up an entire city in just one blast.



- Omega Rex White Fortress Ver.

CoroCoro has posted a new article showing off the Omega Rex White Fortress Ver. It shows the particle gun charging up and being used. These images are for the silver peel, which is essentially a scratch off that buyers of CoroCoro can mail in for a chance to win. Like most other CoroCoro limiteds, it'll be limited to 100 kits total.

Horn Blade Weapon Teaser!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-12 20:20:08

 After teasing the Omega Rex last night, Zoids Official has teased a mysterious weapon variation: A brown Horn Blade. Although Horn Blades were obtained at earlier events like the remodeling both at World Hobby Fair in Tokyo, every iteration we've seen of this so far (including leaks) were in a gray color. So what will this weapon turn out to be from? Will its wider public release be updated to brown? If so, we'll likely see color variations of other weapons as well!



 

Dengeki Hobby Magazine Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-02-12 04:55:18

 The June 2001 issue of Dengeki Hobby Magazine has been reuploaded. We had this issue earlier, though it was temporarily missing with the revamp. This is because it was being rescanned with much better colors. No more bleaching out effect on the pages! I'll be working on rescanning more of our old magazine scans. The August 2002 issue has also been uploaded, which contains some concept art. Both issues contain images of huge display Zoids, like the 1/6 scale Leoblaze and Unenlagia.
