- Zoids Wild 2: Volume 2!


Posted: 2020-06-30 00:27:39

 Zoids Wild 2 is releasing its second manga volume on June 26th! This manga has an excellent style, so I highly recommend picking it up. You can get a copy at Amazon Japan for 670 yen (about $6). Amazon JP requires a separate account from your US amazon account, but you can pay with your normal cards. Some chapter previews were posted over on twitter showing off the more recent chapter art, including the Zero Grizis.

It also has some character art, which was formerly only shown off at Wonder Festival! The blog states that EX-ZERO will run for a total of 6 chapters, and the most recent chapter, originally scheduled for the July issue, has been moved to the August issue due to Corona. So if you're collecting, be sure to pick up August!

- The Art Of HMM Art Book!


Posted: 2020-06-01 09:29:48

 The twitter for HMMZ_Art has revealed their plans for this twitter account! It was created to advertise the upcoming art book, ZOIDS ART OF HMM 2006~2020, an amazing collection of box art, concept art, and story info, with over 80 pieces of package art from the HMM series. This book is being printed with high-saturation printing technology to maximize its beautiful artwork. Not only will it include the concept sketches seen in the instruction manuals and the art along the side of the box, but it'll also contain the battle stories that were written for each Zoid. Many of these stories have aspects unique to HMM. We're looking forward to hearing more about this project!

- Zero Phantoth Build Review Video!


Posted: 2020-06-01 09:29:37

 TakaraTomy posted a build review video of the ZW43 Zero Phantoth! It shows off the full kit, along with its Wild Blast gimmicks. It also has a few shots showing hints of the Zero Grizis in the background, which gives us a decent idea of its size (Phantoth is a large-scale Zoid, so around the size)

- 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.
