- Burning Liger Vs. Xenorex Super Showdown Campaign!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:54:10

 TakaraTomy has announced a rather large campaign, with four entirely unique items up for grabs! From December 26th ~ February 28th, participants who purchase selected products (ZW45 Burning Liger, ZW47 Burning Liger CDW Impact Gatling Set, and ZW52 Xenorex) can remove the barcodes from the box and mail them in to the campaign address to participate in a special raffle that'll award 600 lucky winners with unique prizes.

 The campaign includes brand new Burning Liger Legend Blue (100 available), Xenorex Death Red (100 available), Z-Cap Republic Clear Purple Version (200 sets available), and Z-Cap Empire White Version (200 sets available). Winners are drawn at random, and the Burning Liger and Xenorex kits are sold separately. The prizes are armor parts. This campaign is limited to residents of Japan.



 

- ZW51 Zoids Random Kit Vol. 1!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:53:57
 The identity of ZW51 has been debated for a while, and it seemed odd to see releases up to ZW53 before ever catching wind of it. Now we know why. As it turns out, ZW51 is a blind kit box featuring one of 6 random kits! That's a lot of Zoids to squish into one number. The kit is scheduled to release on January 30th for 1,000 yen. Buyers will get one of the 6 following Zoids at random. Kuwaga SS (Sky Stealth), Gosock HA (Heavy Armed), Spideath NA (Ninja Attacker), Kuwaga FB (Fire Bomber), Gusock IC (Ice Commander), or Spideath Zi (Zi Model), which seems to be a shout out to the original Zenebas color scheme!



 

- ZW52 Xenorex and Evolutions!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:53:43

 The hype train for Xenorex has been steamrolling ahead, with tons of stuff to cover. A basic walk cycle was shown on Twitter, as well as a walk cycle featuring the Impact Gatling. Hobby Watch posted an article showing off the evolutions, and Zoids Official posted one of the CoroCoro images with CoroCoro posting the other.

 From the Hobby Search article we learned of two evolution forms of the Xenorex, the ZW57 Xeno Evolution Arms "Buster Unit", scheduled for Spring 2021, and the ZW54 Xeno Evolution Arms "Scissors Unit", scheduled for February 2021. The build review video of this kit shows off the two evolutions, and a rather interesting gimmick. Not only do they have larger foot parts, but they also have additional segments for the neck and tail, which makes the Xenorex considerably larger than it would be in base form. It's almost like the base Xenorex is a younger form, growing up into the two adult forms. Another build review video by TT showed off some of the concept art.



 

- ZW53 Ignition Booster!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:53:31
 The ZW53 Ignition Boosters are finally up on the TT Mall! You can view several images of this new Core Drive Weapon there. Zoids Official also posted a video showing off its motorized functions. The entire booster assembly moves forward and the panels on the top rise up for the booster configuration. This weapon works with any Zoid that has a compatible rail.



 

- HMM Shadow Fox And HMM Rerelease Dates!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:53:17
 Kotobukiya has released a LABO article discussing the upcoming Shadow Fox Marking Plus Version. The kit shows off new decals, including Ray Force and Team Shadow decals, and as usual, will come with clear colorless parts, which were first released with the chrome CP unit for the original fox kit. The article announced that it will be released in May 2021, with pre-orders open now.

 For other kit releases, we have the Liger Zero Schneider Marking Plus Ver. and Iron Kong PK coming up in March 2021. Liger Zero Panzer Marking Plus Ver. and Berserk Furher Repackage Ver. are scheduled for April 2021, and last but not least, the Gojulas Gunner is currently undergoing a rerelease! This massive kit is a Koto Direct exclusive, so you'll need a proxy to order. It is being rereleased in May 2021.

 The blog warns that just because they rereleased it this time, does not mean that they'll rerelease it again! Koto Direct rereleases are extremely rare, so if you want one, you might want to jump on this opportunity.



 

- HMM Wild Liger Guren!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:53:04
 The HMM Wild Liger Guren Version has finally released. This Kotobukiya Shop Exclusive has chrome plated parts, purple blast effects, and some of the most amazing box art. The kit is based off of the CoroCoro 100 limited.

- Official Fan Book Volume 2 Update!


Posted: 2020-12-08 16:04:28

 We've already covered the Zoids of the Republic, but now you can read all about the Empire Zoids that featured in Volume 2 of the Official Fan Books! This also includes some Zoids that didn't feature, like the Empire's Command Wolf, and some information on the hierarchy of the Empire troops. Also fixed the broken links on the main OFB page. The next sections won't take long to address, since they're relatively short.



 

- Zoids Concept Art Exhibit Updates!


Posted: 2020-12-08 16:03:04

 The Concept Art Exhibit is coming up soon, and there's been a decent number of twitter posts on the topic. The most notable, at the moment, is a twitter campaign where users can follow the zoids_official account and retweet this post for a chance to win a special autographed T-Shirt featuring the main graphic for the event. This is for residents of Japan only. For the rest of us, there's a ton of concept art to look at!

 Zoids Official has posted one of the Death Saurer and Saber Tiger while the GoFa account posted the Saber Tiger CA, which will be featured as a print card at the shop. T2Event, which is TakaraTomy's twitter account for event announcements, posted several as well. Red Horn, Mammoth and Gordos, a random sauropod, and the logo for the event.

- ZW52 Xenorex and the Xeno Evolutions!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:57:53

 Xenorex is making a big appearance in CoroCoro! Not only is the Zoid itself striking a pose, but the December issue also discussed the upcoming Xeno Evolution S! The text seemed to imply that Xeno Evolutions may actually change size, not just armor. The issue also confirmed the spelling to be "Xenorex" all as one word, like Fangtiger.

 A promotional image of the Xenorex that appears in CoroCoro has been posted by Zoids Official. New product images for the kit were exhibited on TakaraTomy Mall's page for the ZW49 Missile + Laser Combat Unit, and it was also featured in the video that showed off these parts. The video gives us a clear look at the Zoid as it looks unmodified, out of the box. You can see the pilot beneath the clear orange canopy, which is an interesting and different placement from the Burning Liger.

Xenorex Data:
Length: 9.8 m
Height: 4.9 m
Width: 3.1 m
Weight: 45.0 tons
Maximum Speed: 200 km/h
Scheduled for a winter release

 Connecting Radar   (blue piece over canopy)
 Forced Cooling System   (boxes on top of arms)
 Laser Bite Fangs   (mouth)
 Protection Canopy  (canopy)
 Multi Connector Unit   (pegs on back)
 Multi Hands   (hands)
 Reinforce Cylinders   (legs)
 Smash Tail   (tail)
 Strike Heavy Claws  (feet)
 Zoid Factor Converter  (Maybe vents on lower back? Not sure what it's pointing to)



 

- Korean Limited: Death Rex Gold Version!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:57:32

 Daewon, who handles the domestic Zoids releases for Korea, has posted an exciting announcement! They'll be releasing their first truly Korean exclusive model kit, the limited edition Death Rex Gold Version! This gold chrome Rex will be releasing for 79,500 Won (roughly $70 USD) later this month on the 26th. It is limited to domestic shipping within Korea, so international fans will need to find a shopping service. I've personally not had any experience with this, so am unfortunately unable to provide any recommendations.



 

- CoroCoro 100: Burning Liger Ltd Black Gold Ver.!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:57:16

 The December issue of CoroCoro revealed our first CoroCoro 100 limited of the new line, the Burning Liger Limited Black Gold Version! This black Burning Liger with added gold parts will be available as a Silver Peel. Aside from that image, a fuller view of it (albeit small) can be seen on the My Zoids Contest 2020 page, as a Burning Liger will be part of the top prize set for each category.



 

- New Zoids Wild Weapon Sets!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:56:59

 Two new weapon sets have been announced for the Zoids Wild series! The ZW49 Missile + Laser Combat Unit and the ZW50 Cannon + Laser Combat Unit! These include brand new weapons that we've seen in the short monthly anime episodes of Zoids Wild Senki. They feature almost the same weapons between them in different colors. They are scheduled to release on December 12th for 1000 Yen.

 A video posted online showed that they also have a couple of pieces not shown in the video. This includes the Attachment Frame (rereleased from earlier sets in red-blue) and the Flexible Joint, which is a ball joint that allows the weapons to swivel in quite a few directions! This, combined with the Conversion Caps that fit over a Zoids cap to turn them into a standard 3mm peg means tons of customization options, even for older Tomy kits.

Universal Weapons: Available in both sets.
 A-Z 4-Barrelled Short Laser Gatling x1
 A-Z Knight Sword x1
 A-Z Laser Drill x1
 A-Z Laser Shot Gun x2
 A-Z Mega Shield x1
 Attachment Frame (count unknown)
 Compact Ion Booster x2
 Conversion Caps x2
 Flexible Joint (count unknown)
 Support Gun Pod x1

ZW49 Exclusive: A-Z 3-Shot Guidance Missiles (Blue)

ZW50 Exclusive: A-Z Long Cannon (Red)

 These weapons sets include some weapons from more expensive kits, for use on other Zoids. The missiles from the blue set are from the Omega Rex, and the cannons from the red set are from the Genospino.

 The larger weapons are designed to attach to the front of the CDW Impact Gatling, spinning along with the motorized function. This includes the 4-Barrelled Short Laser Gatling and the A-Z Laser Drill for certain. The A-Z Knight Sword can be included as a knife within a case, or have the case fasten around the handle to turn it into a longsword.

Posted: 2020-11-23 19:56:43

Including TakaraTomy Toys posting a video of the Impact Gatling attached to the shoulder, which still spins! They also have an information video over on Youtube. The commercial shows off the upcoming ZW53 Ignition Boosters and the silhouette of the upcoming Twin Pile Bunker
