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

 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]

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.

- 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.

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.
