- Hasbro "Pincers" Review!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:41

 I've added a review for Pincers from Hasbro's "Built Them To Battle!" Zoids model kit series. I hope to review every Zoid released in this series, and while I don't have the JP version of this kit, I'll be covering the differences of any kits that I have the JP counterparts of. In the mean time this review introduces some of the standard changes between the US and JP editions, as well as box images and instructions.

 Since Zoids Wild is a new stage for Zoids model kits, both in the US and in Japan, I've separated the Hasbro release to its own model kits section. There are so many differences in these kits that I felt that they deserved its own space. This section includes a list of the Zoids, an overview of the differences, and will include all of the reviews we'll be making going forward! I'd really like to cover every kit in this line, if possible.



 

- ZW57 Xeno Evolution Arms "Buster Unit"!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:30:05

 A review video has been posted for the ZW57 Xeno Evolution Arms "Buster Unit" and the ZW58 Xenorex Buster XA! These kits are scheduled to release on March 27th for 1,000 yen and 3,500 yen respectively, but unfortunately stock has been very low. I don't think any of the standard stores still have them available, so you may need to do some shopping around, or order through the TakaraTomy Mall.

- New Burning and Xeno Limited Photos!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:29:35

 The official twitter account has posted new photos of the Burning Liger "Legend Blue" and Xenorex "Death Red"! These kits really do look nice in the opposing colors. They're part of the recent Japan-only campaign, raffled in exchange for shipped in barcodes from applicable Zoids-related purchases.



 

- HMM Sturm Tyrann Rerelease!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:18:28

 Kotobukiya has announced a rerelease of their HMM Sturm Tyrann kit for July, sold at 12,000 yen! This kit has been highly anticipated in spite of only being rereleased a short time ago.



 

- NJR Model Kit Section Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:48:24

 A huge update has been rolled out for the NJR Model Kit section! All of the standard Zoids, 1 ~ 76 now contain their own pages, similar to our Zoids Wild and HMM sections. These pages included images (if available), stats, battle story, and fuselage explanations from the boxes. They use automatic translations, so may contain errors.

- Instruction Updates!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:47:36

 Two NJR model kit instructions have been added to the Instructions page (linked at the top of the Model Kits page), Dark Spiner and Liger Zero. The instruction manuals for these were generously donated by Rhasputin, along with a large number of others. We'll be slowly scanning them over time and trying to expand this section.

- ZW Biographies: Wild Liger Updates!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:47:24

 A new video has been released for the Wild Liger Clive Diaz Spec., the first Zoid of the Zoids Wild Biographies line. This Liger is based on Diaz's Liger from Zoids Wild Zero, and the video shows off all the custom work done for it. The video also mentions expanding upon lore that wasn't able to be covered during the course of the show, such as how Diaz came to pilot this Liger. The kit is available on the TakaraTomy Mall for 4,950, and while it is scheduled to be released in late July, you only have until March 31st to order!

- Xeno Evolution Arms Buster Unit!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:47:08

 The Xeno Evolution Arms "Buster Unit" (Scheduled for March 27th for 1,000 Yen) and the ZW58 Xenorex Buster XA (Scheduled for March 27th for 3,500 Yen) are now available on the TakaraTomy Mall! Along with box art and product photos. Buster XA will contain a new color scheme exclusive to this set.



 

- ZW56 CDW Twin Pile Bunker


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:46:55

 With the Buster Unit update we also saw the ZW56 CDW Twin Pile Bunker added to the TT mall! Looks like this weapon fits both of the current Senki Zoids, and has a rather nice design. It is scheduled for March 27th, for 1,000 yen.



 

- HMM Zoids Wild Fangtiger Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:46:42

 Kotobukiya has posted a LABO article detailing the upcoming HMM Fangtiger! Like Wild Liger, they are starting off with some CG renders mostly, but it still gives us a decent look at the Zoid. Fangtiger comes with Wild Blast effect parts for both Bacon and Fangtiger, just like Wild Liger did. The Kotobukiya Direct exclusive bonus is Z-Cap Supreme Yellow Version. The kit is up for pre-order on most of your typical websites. Be advised that on Amazon, it is not able to be cancelled after April 4th! It's scheduled for an August release for 9,000 Yen.



 

- ZW: Clive Diaz's Personal Wild Liger


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:10:14

 Zoids Official started teasing their next new Zoid! It was apparent from the first picture that this would be Lieutenant Colonel Clive Diaz's personal Wild Liger, as seen in the Zoids Wild Zero anime. This kit has been the first kit announced for the upcoming line, Zoids Wild Biographies! This has really interesting implications. A ton of people have made customs of this specific Liger. The question is, how many kits will we see from this line? Will they all be based on the anime customs? There are so many amazing possibilities. I'll also be looking forward to seeing how it looks out of the box, and how many painted details are included. For now, you can check out the official product photos on the TakaraTomy Mall and a brief video on Twitter that shows off the movements.



- Diaz's Wild Liger Clips

 With the exciting announcement of this kit I decided to put together a series of clips showing off some of its features in the show. This video contains spoilers. You have been warned!



 

- ZW55 Xenorex Scissors XA


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:09:23

 We'd already heard about the ZW54 Xeno Evolution Arms "Scissor Unit", which is now available on the TakaraTomy Mall, and is scheduled for a February 20th release for 1,000 yen. Now, they've announced a second version: The ZW55 Xenorex Scissors XA, which features the unit in swapped colors, installed onto a white Xenorex. This kit is scheduled for release on February 20th, for 3,500 yen.

- ZW58 Xenorex Buster XA


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:09:10

 Zoids Infinity Coliseum gave us a sneak peak at the color alternate for the upcoming Xeno Evolution Arms "Buster Unit". The Xenorex "Buster XA" will be printed in black, with a slightly off-black tone used for the Xeno Evolution Arms.



 

- ZW53 Ignition Booster!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:08:51

 A new video has been posted to show off the ZW53 Ignition Booster. In this video they try it out on different Zoids, and really show off how good it can look with different setups. Especially with all those motorized parts.

- Death Stinger ZS and HMM Rerelease Dates!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:08:36

 Kotobukiya made a rather exciting announcement this week, the Death Stinger ZS! Also known as the Zarka Spec., this is a new addition to the ever increasing Yuji Kaida lineup. The kit will feature slightly pink-tinted pearl armor, Zenebas red, clear green eye parts, and metallic green rings. The rings are an interesting addition. Some love it, some hate it, but it certainly makes the kit look unique on the shelf. It'll also include clear colorless parts similar to the MPVs, and a brand new set of decals for both the ZS and original. Since the original Death Stinger didn't have decals, this is a nice bonus. It's scheduled to be released in July, for 14,800 yen.



HMM Rereleases!

 We've got a good bunch of kit rerelease announcements! Scheduled for May, we have the Liger Zero Marking Plus Ver. for 6,300 yen and the Molga & Molga Cannory Unit and Molga AA & Molga Carrier for 4,200 (for each set). For July, we have the Cannon Tortoise for 3,200 yen and the Geno Saurer Repackage Ver. for 8,200 yen.



 

- HMM Manual Translations!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:54:33

 Automatic translations have been added to the HMM 030 Liger Zero Jager and HMM 046 Shield Liger DCS-J model kit pages. Kotobukiya has gone through a lot of trouble to expand lore and specification details for every Zoid in their lineup, and these two are no exception. Packed with tons of technical info, you can use the HMM-universe lore to fill out your headcanons about these unique Zoids!

- 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.
