Zoids Wild Crowdfunding Campaign!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:09:08

 Zoids has seen the start of its first crowdfunding campaign! Measuring at a massive 50 x 44 cm, ZOIDSWILD The ART of BATTLEFIELDS is a book that showcases tons of the beautiful Zoids works seen in CoroCoro Comic and other outlets. It's wonderful to see these beautiful photos without all of the text that clutters them in the accompanying magazine.

 In addition, if the project is funded, everyone who pledged the required 11,000 yen (roughly $110) will receive the Fang Tiger "White Tiger Form" armor parts set, a set that was currently one of CoroCoro's 100 limiteds. They will also receive a special poster of the cast from the Chaotic Century manga. The poster is printed in the same size as the book, so there will be no creases in it.

 The cover of the book features a 1/1 scale Wild Liger cap, which is fitting for the recent series. The book also has a double fold to see the panorama style diorama images.



 So, what do we need to know? First off, the crowdfounding is available to residents of Japan only. If you try to support from another country, your pledge will be cancelled. However, services like From Japan, Celga, and White Rabbit Express will be able to help you relay your support. The project is currently 15% funded with 27 days to go, ending on January 31st.

Zoids Wild Official Fan Book Vol.1!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:08:42

 The crowdfunding isn't the only momentus occasion! Zoids Wild released its first Fan Book on December 27th! You can purchase it here for 990 yen. So, what all is in it? The book contains profiles featuring images from earlier issues of CoroCoro, along with small fact files. Many of those profiles contain a tiny thumbnail of concept art for the Zoid as well. There are a couple custom examples.

 Aside from that, the book also contains a new chapter of Zoids Wild 2, featuring how Kai (as a child) first encountered the Beast Liger! It contains a second manga chapter, this time from Ueyama, telling the story of how Irvine met Tornado.

 The book also comes with a carrying case made out of thin plastic, which is large enough to fit a medium scale Zoid. This should be perfect for people who like to travel with a kit! A limited card of the Rising Liger is also included.

ZW35 Drei Panther!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:08:16

 We have a ton of Wild and HMM kit news to sort through, so let's start with the Drei Panther! This cat was released on December 26th, for a price of 4,000 yen. It gets its name (Drei - German for Three) from the three blades hidden inside of its Shadow Shields. The whole unit is designed to emphasize stealth, silently sniping enemies with the guns on its back. As a side note, the Drei Panther is the smartest of all currently released feline Zoids in Zoids Wild, by far.

 TakaraTomy posted a couple of videos of its Machine Blast on twitter, and you can view its images and box art on the TakaraTomy Mall. It has a build video up on youtube already. You can also check out this tweet to see its beautiful smile~

ZW36 Rising Liger!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:07:56

 The ZW36 Rising Liger was also announced! This kit is scheduled to be released on January 25th for 4000 Yen, and has been one of the more heavily debated kits thus far. Originally leaked with an unpainted photo, the kits colors left a lot to be desired. However, as it turns out, the Rising Liger will be released in a beautiful painted gold (for all gold parts except the Evo Blast unit). The recent product photos make the kit look worlds better, and not only was it featured as the cover to the Zoids Wild Fan Book, but many theorize that it will (quite likely) have a major role in the anime soon.

 This kit is focused on a revolver scheme, with a spinning chamber and a gunblade on the front. It has a lot of heavy armor, and a new paw design. It is known to puff up its Rising Frill (Mane) and intimidate enemies with the Roar Cannon (unlisted). You can see a build review video with customization examples on TakaraTomy's channel, and a shorter build review video on CoroCoro Next. Here are some other posts on this Liger! Evo Blast Video, Photos, Close Up, Another Photo, and the Dengeki Hobby Article (with additional product photos).

  Wild Blast: Rising Gun Slasher / Rising Buster Blade, Length: 8.7 m, Height: 4.8 m, Weight: 53.5 t, Max Speed: 225 km/h, IQ: 107

 We first saw this event in Zoids Wild: Battle Card Hunter, with the release of the limited (150) Wild Liger Crystal and (1000) Assault Boost Unit Clear Ver. Well, it looks like we're about to have a second competition! This time, we're mainly looking at the Fang Tiger Amber (150 released), which shows the Fang Tiger in a solid gold color. It... looks surprisingly nice! The runner up prize is the Buster Radar Unit Black Clear Ver. (1000 released) The more common prize will be a Buster Radar Unit Black Clear Ver.

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.



 

Zoids Wild Custom Examples!  [Official]


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

 Aside from your typical custom examples, the folks at the Zoids Official twitter have started making customizing examples based on the variations in the Wild Zero instruction manuals. They are strikingly similar to the actual thing, and some of them are even made with the most basic of items!

 First up is the Gatling Fox Special Forces Spec., the Drei Panther Fighter Prototype, the Fire Genospino (with a second post), the Raptoria Ground Reconnaissance Spec. (with a second post), the black Triceradogos, and the Imperial Scorpear. All of these Zoids can be recreated using Zoids Wild kits and weapons sets. The following two ligers require additional items not sold in this franchise to create: The Beast Liger Amphibious Spec. and the Beast Liger variant that appeared in the first episode of Wild Zero.

 There was also a Beast Liger customization video, and a customs example video for the ongoing Zoids Wild custom contest.

HMM Model Kit News!  [Official]


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

 Kotobukiya has been teasing us about some upcoming images that aren't done yet, but soon! Perhaps this is related to the unpainted Wild Liger we saw earlier. Either way, let's go over other HMM news from the past couple of months while we wait.

- Great Sabre Marking Plus

 The Great Sabre is scheduled for a rerelease as the Marking Plus version! Like other Marking Plus, this will contain new decals as well as clear (colorless) parts in addition to the normal clear eye color, etc. It is scheduled to release in April 2020, for 7,800 yen.



- Saber Tiger Marking Plus

 Aside from Great Sabre, the original Saber Tiger was released a month or so ago, with modified box art. This box art contains a new atmosphere, and suits the Saber Tiger incredibly well! It also contained new decals and clear eye, etc. pieces.



- Shield Liger DCS-J

 The HMM Shield Liger DCS-J was released in November for 7,800 yen, and Kotobukiya has posted a blog post. This post shows off the kit as well as several different pose concepts, concepts that could have been for the box art! I think they chose the best one. It carries so much gravity for the battle story. We will get back to work on the Official Fan Books soon!



- Gojulas Gunner

 The Gojulas Gunner was released in November, for 29,800 yen. This kit was a Kotobukiya Direct exclusive. If you pre-ordered the kit you'd get all of the parts that came with Gojulas the Ogre, but if you purchased the kit after the release date, you only got the typical "Gunner" parts, which excluded some of the Ogre equipment. Kotobukiya made a blog post showing off this kit, along with its box art!



- HMM Rereleases!

 Kotobukiya has announced a slew of rereleases over the coming months! In April we have the Command Wolf Repackage for 4,800 yen. This is the white Command Wolf that comes with all of the different weapon loadouts. Also being released in April are the Molga and Molga With Canory Unit, as well as the Molga AA & Molga Carrier. Both Molga sets are releasing at 4,200 yen. Finally, we have the Storm Sworder rereleasing in May for 8,300 yen.

As a fascinating last note, Shinohba, who worked on the old Zoids web comics, posted two concepts of the Quad Liger, one of which we have seen photos of before. These are beautiful, clear images of this Zoid's design process. Quad LIger can always use some more love!
