Article Section Revamp!

Posted: 2020-04-18 20:37:57

 I've never been quite happy with our last revamp of the article section, which was messy and honestly a bit hard to navigate. The section has been updated to be broken down into categories: Merchandise, Assorted, and Reading categories. This should make it easier to find what you're looking for at a glance. The actual magazine scans have been put into their own column to make it easier not to confuse them with similarly named articles.

 The Buying Zoids From Japan article (renamed Shopping For Zoids!, and now located as the very first item you see) has been completely rewritten from the ground up. The article now includes a F.A.Q. section, as well as separate pages for Deputy Services and Stores & Markets. The Deputy Services have been updated for a less scroll-heavy layout, with sections added (for those with enough info) for pros, cons, and shipping standards. Japamart and White Rabbit Express have been added to our list of popular services. The info table for every service now lists whether or not it covers Kotobukiya Direct exclusive items, such as the Liger Zero EM.

 Stores and Markets have been moved to their own page, divided into International Stores (New Items), International Stores (Used Items), and Japanese Only Markets. Each major store includes a basic rundown, location, and stocking info (if it regularly gets certain items in stock, etc.) Some stores have been added.

Zoids Article on Outseekers!  [Site]

Posted: 2020-03-02 04:40:47

 Although not really official, TT's twitter pointed out this wonderful article from Out Seekers, which discusses a man's rediscovery of the Zoids Franchise, and the custom projects he created using the Zoids Wild kits. It's a great article, both from a nostalgic and a customizer standpoint, complete with photos and videos!

New CoroCoro Articles Section!   [Site]

Posted: 2019-08-26 09:00:00

    With the rise of interesting interviews on CoroCoro Online I've decided to add a page to our Articles section specifically for dissecting these articles. Please note that these are based on automatic translation, so there are bound to be some mistakes, but most of it should be relatively straight forward. These pages are striving only to provide a slightly more coherent alternative to reading the raw auto translate and I hope that they can provide an easier avenue to learning about the development process of Zoids.

Official News Feed Article!   [Site]

Posted: 2019-08-17 14:00:00

    An article has been added for Official Feeds. As the article name implies, this includes embedded twitter feeds of all official Zoids accounts. We may add a separate page later for accounts of known associates, employees, artists, etc. in the future. With this page you can view all official twitter posts without scrolling through a sea of endless posts.

Buying Zoids From Japan Article!  [Site]

Posted: 2018-10-08 11:00:00

    The Buying Zoids article has been completely revamped (and renamed to more accurately represent its intention). The page now includes a comprehensive comparison of popular buying services, such as Celga, Buyee, From Japan, etc. This includes comparisons of fees, a list of the free and extended storage time limits, etc. There are also new stores added, such as Mercari, Suruga-ya, etc. Please read the descriptions before using these stores because they include possible cons. I'm in the process of testing a couple of these services for myself, but everything on the list has come recommended by other Zoiders!

- 1st Edition Zoids Article

    The 1st Edition Zoids Article has been updated to include most of the Genesis Zoids. I haven't had a chance to check for Fuzors cards. If there's any items missing from the list, please send us an E-mail! I'll be glad to add it if you can provide a picture of the box showing the sticker.

CoroCoro Silver Peel Article!  [Site]

Posted: 2018-10-08 10:00:00

    When the Zoids Wild kits started to release, CoroCoro began releasing limited items through a silver peel raffle. This is basically a card like a scratch off (don't scratch it-) that you peel off with sticky tape. If you get the right combo of kanji/words, you can submit the ticket for a chance to win the item. Unfortunately this is mostly limited to Japan residents, but in case anyone out there has friends in Japan that are willing to submit the ticket for them, we've included a guide on how to win!

    You can find this article listed under Model Kit articles, in our newly revamped articles section! Some articles are still painfully out of date, but we'll address that eventually.


Smack Zoids: B-Part Update!  [Site]

Posted: 2016-10-05 04:00:00

    What? An update? No ... It couldn't be-

    Long story short I switched harddrives a few months ago, which sorely set me back on projects that became completely disorganized while moving some stuff around. Plus work, lack of free time, and personal projects related to other stuff. I apologize for the radio silence!

    The last time we updated (7... months... ago- Ahem.) I'd started a project for the Smack Zoids! B-Part series. These were concepts published in DHM about various stages of Zoid development that applied some story basis to formerly known conceptual images. I've published the second part of that article, and probably one of the more demanded, the Geneology of Liger Zoids! ... Actually when I say the next part, I should probably clarify that right now these aren't done in order. I'm going to backtrack a bit and see if I can get the earlier parts up later.


Smack Zoids! B-Part!  [Site]

Posted: 2016-04-28 04:00:00

    We've recently begun working on a Dengeki Hobby Magazine project. With scans and translation help provided by Falcarius, we're excited to bring in a new article for the Smack Zoids! B-Part Series of DHM. This series is where most of the unique concept art that people have so distinctly recognized comes from. We'll be making a separate page for each B-Part segment, starting with the wolves from the January 2002 issue of DHM. You can find this under Articles > Magazine Articles > Smack Zoids! B-Part.

    As a forewarning, a lot of future translations in this project will rely heavily on automated translation for context, and may contain errors. If anyone believes any data to be incorrect please let us know! We'll be glad to fix it~
