HMM Wild Liger!


Posted: 2020-04-18 20:37:15

 We have some exciting new updates for the HMM Wild Liger! In lieu of colored product photos, Kotobukiya has set up the Wild Liger page with some high-detail CG images. They have assured us that the CG images, however, all use poses that are 100% possible with the physical model. HMM Wild Liger is scheduled to release in August, for 8,800 yen. Ordering from Kotobukiya Direct will get you the Z Caps Freedom Blue Ver.

 There's also a LABO Article discussing the kit, and what we can expect!

Liger Details:
 ●The kit is 1/35 scale.
 ●The colors are based on the anime-version, including tail tip, rib color, etc.
 ●The joint caps and eyes will use clear parts.
 ●It will include a Zoid Core.
 ●The tail is split into 7 different sections, on a 3mm axis joint for maximum articulation.
 ●Many of the pose images are based on anime-specific scenes.
 ●The eyes are on a vertical axis and can be rotated forwards and backwards.
 ●The eye direction can be reversed to reveal a 3mm hole for the Wild Blast attachment.
 ●HMM Wild Liger has roughly 350 parts.

Arashi Details:
 ●The included Arashi pilot also has alternative parts for the Wild Blast.
 ●A 9mm Zoid Key is included and can actually be jammed into the Wild Liger's neck.
 ●The fully painted Arashi figure is one of the big contributors to the Liger's price.
 ●Arashi comes with 3 parts: Normal Head, Wild Blast Head, and body.
 ●Some details have been excluded from the painted figure (Freedom badge, etc.) but are included as decals.

Other Details:
 ●August will have no other Zoids/Rereleases, so users can afford the Liger more easily.

CoroCoro Limited: Liger The Arthur!


Posted: 2020-04-18 20:37:05

 News on Liger The Arthur is ramping up! CoroCoro posted an article with some cool new images of the kit, and Zoids Official posted a spread from the recent issue of CoroCoro Comic! Liger the Arthur will be available as a mail-in purchase using the applicable postcard from CoroCoro Comic. It will cost 4,600 yen and will be limited to the first 12,000 orders.

 So, what options are available to overseas users? While we've found one service willing to attempt the mail-in order, it would come at an additional $20 fee, and from what I can find most services that would try also have added fees. With mail already backing up on a global scale, the best bet for overseas buyers seems to be to wait for its release and use Yahoo Japan. The markup of such limited kits is usually around $10-$20 anyway, so you can avoid the hassle. Some services are offering extended warehouse storage due to these trying times, and if you use Celga, although it is manual and slower to purchase and get updates from, they have free unlimited storage. So you could have them hold your item indefinitely while we weather these difficult circumstances.



 

ZW42 Kill Scythe!


Posted: 2020-04-18 20:35:04

 TakaraTomy has announced the next new Zoid, the Kill Scythe! We've been seeing a lot of this little guy in the new Zero anime OP, various commercials and WIPs, etc. but we finally have some data. Kill Scythe is a small-scale windup kit that will be released on May 23rd for 1,500 yen. You can view it and its box art on the TakaraTomy Mall, its info page on TakaraTomy's Official Website, and a DHM article which includes a couple of additional photos. We've also added its data to the model kit section!


 A mantis-type Zoid that specializes in close-range combat. Although it has low offensive strength on its own, it's an army-type unit that becomes a threat against large Zoids when it attacks in a group. When it falls into a dying state, it drops the powerful time bomb on its stomach on the enemy. At the command of the Captain's machine, they release their Machine Blast all at once and attach to the enemy, tearing apart the enemy's armor with the electromagnetic scythe and the chainsaw knife.

Excavation Site Center of Continent, Forest Zone
 Most of the time they had dropped their time bombs before becoming fossilized, but in rare cases they can be found with them still attached. Since these cases require careful attention, the excavation takes twice as long.

Wild Blast: Kill Crush
Length: 4.2 m
Height: 3.3 m
Weight: 9.2 tons
Max Speed: 175 km/h
IQ: 90
Equipment: Chainsaw Knife, Electromagnetic Scythe, Shield Wing, Smoke Discharger, Time Bomb, Twin Radar Antenna

HMM Geno Saurer Repackage Updates!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:50:27

 Kotobukiya has published on article on the HMM Geno Saurer Repackage Ver., revealing its brand new box art! This is a beautiful image depicting the aftermath of the Geno Saurer's test battle, which funny enough, we just covered in Official Fan Book 2. This was a suitable scene to choose for a mass rerelease of the original kit. "Mass produce the Geno Saurer immediately."

 The LABO article shows two other concepts for the box art. The pose sketches depict a scene based on the original motorized kit's box art, and a second scene featuring the Geno Saurer standing in front of the large core capsule, thought to contain the missing piece of the Organoid System. Also from Fan Book 2! A tweet from one of Kotobukiya's shops has a much larger photo of the box art. A final footnote of the article mentions that their next post will be about the Wild Liger~

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.

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.!
