- 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)



 

- Zoids Wild 2+ Manga Announced!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:52:37

 The December issue of CoroCoro announced a brand new manga, Zoids Wild 2+! As Wild 2 ended just recently we had been wondering if there was going to be a follow up, and it seems there is! The issue showed off a color image of the main character, and we've also seen some sketches over on Moritya's twitter. For those who want to know how Zoids Wild 2 ended, you can pick up the book (Japanese version) over on AmazonJP.

Posted: 2020-09-23 17:05:37

 CoroCoro Premier (Pal-Shop) has announced a Zoids Wild 2020 campaign, which will include a public sale for Liger The Arthur! Liger The Arthur is available through their online webstore for 3,910 yen. Some of you may remember the last CoroCoro Premier sale, which featured the Death Rex Purple Dragon Form for 8,250 yen. While that kit is still available, CoroCoro Premier is also offering a Zoids Wild Liger The Arthur + Death Rex Purple Dragon Form Special Set for 12,160 yen. So if you missed the Death Rex, and want to pick up both Zoids now, consider this set!

- New Liger CoroCoro Image!


Posted: 2020-08-14 03:03:06

Zoids Official posted a look at the full image of the new Liger, which appeared in CoroCoro. The scale of the Gilraptor being crushed in its jaws implies that the upcoming series will be returning to 1/72 scale, or very close to it.

CoroCoro Text

- Zombie-Kun's Survival Guide!


Posted: 2020-08-11 21:20:34

 Another series, Zo-Zo-Zo-Zombie-Kun has recently received a new toy series! In celebration CoroCoro Online did a collaboration article. A survival guide for how to deal with Zombie Zoids! In this article, the zombie-Zoid dubbed ZZ, created from a Beast Liger, rampages throughout a base! Since this is just a fun little one-off we decided to go ahead and include a rough google translation of it over in the books section.

- 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.

CoroCoro Liger the Arthur Video!


Posted: 2020-04-22 21:07:55

 CoroCoro has posted a video going through the various Ligers released throughout the generations! They also show off Liger The Arthur, which looks amazing in the metallic silver. You can see the various armor additions, the Wild Blast, etc.



 

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.

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.



 

CoroCoro Limited: Liger The Arthur!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-15 10:25:51

 This month's issue of CoroCoro announced an interesting Zoid: A Rising Liger variation called Liger The Arthur. They also posted an article showing off the full image for it on their website!

 The Arthur is a limited kit obtained through a "paid service", scheduled around the May issue of CoroCoro. The closest comparison for this seems to be the Black Rhimos and Bearfighter from the NJR, where people could mail in their forms from CoroCoro to purchase the kits. Although, it's worth noting that back in the day, these kits weren't listed as "Limited", and were available to all who submitted an application. We don't know yet how limited the Arthur will be, or if Limited simply means "limited to everyone who submits an application, during the relevant time" which is certainly a possibility.

 When it was first announced, we speculated that this might refer to the Pal-Shop, also known as CoroCoro Premier (Shogakukan's mail-order site). However, after comparing the double page spread to the one where the Death Rex Purple Dragon Form was announced for rerelease (in the same shop), this seems unlikely. The Rex made multiple direct references to CoroCoro Premier, including photos of the shop. If this were going to be the outlet used, it seems likely that it would specify this clearly, as they did before. At the moment, it may end up being an actual physical mail-order item.

 On a positive note, Arthur has a lot of additional parts! This includes a basic Rising Liger with silver armor, blue secondary armor, and blue caps. The Liger also includes a new armored visor, a huge lance-like weapon on the back, new tail armor, new paw armor, etc. We'll post more as we get more information!


- CoroCoro Translation

 A special Liger with the [???] of a proud knight!!
 A super-limited new Liger that merges a Zoid with the strength and figure of a "knight" that fought in the Middle Ages!! Its armour and weapons give rise to a new storm!! Wait for entries to open in the May issue!!

 Zoids development team comments: If you take Zoids, which are mecha + lifeforms, and add the coolness of armoured knights... A Liger even greater than expected has been born!!

 An Evo Blast gimmick that pierces everything...!?
 Its body uses the strongest materials in history...!?

 The next issue will contain a special manga featuring Liger The Arthur!!

 A new Coro Coro limited Zoid will be offered as a limited-quantity paid service for applicants in the May issue!! Liger The Arthur sets out for the front!!

 We've learned that a new Liger with new parts and new colours will be sold as a Coro Coro limited! It's a super masterpiece that fans and even beginners will definitely want to obtain!

* Translations were done by Falcarius! Thank you! Because some characters were not visible in the source image, there are a couple of words missing. These will be updated as soon as a personal copy of CoroCoro has been received.


 

CoroCoro Comic Update!  [Site]

 The July 2000 issue of CoroCoro Comic has been uploaded! These scans are from purchased cutouts, so some pages weren't able to be repaired. This is also why some have cut off text, and we are missing a page. My apologies! On the plus side it contains a lot of cool Geno Breaker imagery, and a piece of concept art for it. It also includes the Death Stinger's concept art, the fan-submitted sketch it was based off of from the Idea Contest, and the prototype of the model kit.

Unknown Zoid Teased in CoroCoro!?  [Official]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:03:04

 The February issue of CoroCoro will come with a "Real Size Zoids Calender 2020", a special calender featuring Zoids in 1/1 scale around Shibuya in Japan. While this is cool, CoroCoro has also pointed out an unknown Zoid that will be featured in the calender. It's a little difficult to tell what type it's even supposed to be, but as far as I can tell, it doesn't match any of the leaked Zoid designs that we've seen so far.



 

CoroCoro News!   [Official]


Posted: 2019-09-14 11:00:00

    CoroCoro has posted a few new articles for their Super Picture Book series, showing off the remainder of major Zoids lines from 2004 to now! It's a great way to look back on the old kits.

    Part 5: Combine With Zoids BLOX!
    Part 6: Genesis Joins The Second Phase!
    Part 7: The Great Revival After 12 Years!



- Geno Spino Paper Diorama

    The November issue of CoroCoro will also include a special cardboard diorama for the Geno Spino! We haven't had many things like this before, so it'll be neat to see.

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.

CoroCoro Online Updates!   [Official]


Posted: 2019-08-26 05:00:00

    The hype for Zoids is well underway, and CoroCoro Online is steamrolling ahead with at least one new article a day. As part of their "Zoids Fest" event, they've published brand new artwork from Takao Aoki, one of the earliest manga artists to ever work on Zoids! This mostly features the Gold Liger from the earlier manga.

- Zoids Wild 2 Artwork

    In the same vein, Moricha, the artist of the Zoids Wild manga as well as the upcoming Zoids Wild 2 manga, is posting artwork as part of Zoids Fest. This includes a scene with the two series of Wild characters getting together for a fun day at the beach, with updates piece by piece each day. It surprised us with Shuuza (Kai's big brother) having such bright blue hair! It also introduces us to the heroine of Wild 2, Toujou Elly, seen by Penne.

- History of Zoids in CoroCoro

    CoroCoro has continued its article series "The Thorough Dissection of the History of Zoids", which looks back over the years and years of CoroCoro content for the franchise. We've included a list of articles below. CoroCoro has some cool pictures in the magazine that may interest older fans!

    Part 6: (2000 ~ 2001) Let's go, Liger! Liger Zero, nicknamed the "New Beast King!"
    Part 7: (2001 ~ 2002) Zoids BLOX, which allow transformation and unison appear!
    Part 8: (2004 ~ 2005) "Unison" and "Evolt" change Zoids into new forms!
    Part 9: (2018) "Zoids Wild" starts with a big impact!
    Part 10: (2018) "Zoids Wild" goes to a new stage!



- Zoids Super Picture Book

    The afforementioned articles aren't the only thing of note. CoroCoro also posted a new article set consisting of two parts, titled "Zoids Super Picture Look Looking Back At Earlier Kits!!" These articles showed off clean digital box art from the earlier series, providing an excellent look at Zoids of the past. Phase 1 Series (1983 ~ 1990) includes much of the "OJR". The article includes commercials that've been uploaded to CoroCoro's channel over the years, with a by-year release list. The Phase 2 (RZ - EZ) Series article, spanning from 1999 ~ 2000 covers stock photos for much of the NJR, also organized by year.



- Special Interview

    A final series running at the moment, but by far one of the most interesting is the article series "Zoids Wild Planning And Development Special Interviews", which is so far a 3 part series that talks to the staff of Zoids Wild. This includes so many interesting facts about the series, such as Fang Tiger being the originally intended hero Zoid. Even if you're using automatic translation it is well worth a read!

    Part 1: Link
    Part 2: The Latest Work Is Related To Zoids of Past Series!?
    Part 3: Past Revealed? The Future To Be Spun? Discussing Anime "Zoids Wild ZERO" & Manga "Zoids Wild 2"!!
