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

 CoroCoro posted an exciting article revealing the new liger. The article is vague but gives us an awesome look at its face.

 It's finally time to unveil the fourth generation of the protagonist Liger machines of Zoids Wild!

 However, something is wrong. This is different from the successive ligers who've fought for peace, with a confusing figure and atmosphere... Is this Liger an enemy!!!?

 The information known at this time will be published in the September issue of CoroCoro!




 

- Air Stand River Battle!


Posted: 2020-08-11 21:20:05

 Kotobukiya announced that the next Stand River Battle will be held online, and livestreamed on youtube! This comes with a ton of exciting announcements, and will take place on October 3rd, 2020, streamed live to Youtube at 13:00! Aside from a live assembly of the HMM Wild Liger, we'll also be seeing announcements of new MPV versions of Zoids. Even more exciting, prototypes for the HMM Gilraptor, HMM Fangtiger, and HMM Rev Raptor will be shown for the very first time! These are Zoids that have previously only been shown off as illustrations. If that weren't enough, they're planning to announce another brand new HMM Zoid during the live broadcast!

 What is Stand River? It's an event held in Japan, where typically people bring in customs that they align with the Empire or the Republic, and set them up on the appropriate tables. Each Zoid is judged for a certain number of points, and at the end of the event, the side with the most points wins! However, since they are holding the event virtually in respect for the ongoing pandemic, there are no participation prizes or rewards for entering. Still, it will be exciting to see!

 Kotobukiya has a page discussing the details of the event. This will likely still be limited to residents of Japan, but we're posting the details for archiving purposes.

 - Submission date is September 1st, 2020 ~ September 13th, 11:59 PM. The results will be announced on Oct 3rd.
Participation Regulations:
 - The completed custom must be based on an HMM Zoid.
 - It must be a 1/72 scale piece.

 - You can only use HMM Zoids, TT Zoids Products (including older Tomy products), MSG goods, or unlicensed / scratch built materials. The decals must also be based on this content. Basically, it must be appropriate to the series and not step on any trademark toes.
 - Works that infringe on other intellectual properties won't be permitted. Although this is unlikely to cause problems, any consequences of evading this rule will be carried out at the expense of the person who entered the work.
 - They also reserve the right to disqualify entries that: Violate public order and morals, have visible personal information that can be read, slander a specific person or group, imitate or plagiarize, or works that do not fit the purpose of the contest.

- Zero Grizis Videos Galore!


Posted: 2020-08-11 21:19:50

 We have a few videos for Zero Grizis, including this Twitter Video showing off a small mock battle between the Grizis and a... rather unlucky group of Kill Scythes. There's also a Build Video on CoroCoro Next, and a Diorama Video featuring Grizis and Grizis Dark Form. This video also shows off the customized examples shown in CoroCoro, which used purple-silver spraypainted weapons. These weapons are similar to the Purple Version weapons being released for the next campaign!

- Zoids Wild: Infinity Blast Demo!


Posted: 2020-08-11 21:18:45

 The September Issue of CoroCoro included a promo code for a demo of the upcoming Nintendo Switch game, Zoids Wild: Infinity Blast! This code has already been leaked into the wild, and we've got some early looks at the game! First, a special edition of the game will be released in late November for 6570 yen, and include a Rising Liger Infinity Blue full model kit, sporting metallic blue armor. In other news, Zoids Wild: Blast Unleashed, the English patch

 The demo released through the play store (via code D3GM-3304-448B-Y0SB) includes 6 starting Zoids: Beast Liger, Cannon Bull, Gabrigator, Gannontoise, Gilraptor, and Scorpear. The game sports a roster of 24 additional Zoids, locked out as silhouettes. There's a wide array of customization options, including different weapons and changing different parts of the Zoid to different colors (with roughly 5 shades for each color). The game carries on King of Blast's lovely loading screens (courtesy of Spooks), which look great! There are plans to have a tournament held via youtube in the autumn.

 Now, let's move on to speculation! The game is confirmed to include some old Zoids, including the Blade Liger and Geno Breaker. The silhouettes imply even more. Please note, this is NOT a confirmed list! From the silhouettes, we're guessing it also includes: Fang Tiger, Fang Tiger Kai (?), Rising Liger (?), Drei Panther (?), two variants of Command Wolf, Blade Liger, Gusock, Hunter Wolf, Wild Liger, Grachiosaurus, Triceradogos, Sonic Bird, Knuckle Kong, Stegosage, Dimepulsar, Death Rex, Genospino, Gilraptor, Geno Breaker, Iron Kong, Death Stinger, Zero Grizis, and possibly even Ultrasaurus (though this one is harder to guess). The roster is a huge improvement over the previous game, and we're likely to see DLC later on!

 In other news, Zoids Wild: Blast Unleashed, the English port of Zoids Wild: King of Blast coming to international stores has been announced to include the DLC that was released for the Japanese version of the game!



 

- Zoids Wild Coming To Netflix!


Posted: 2020-08-11 21:18:02

 Zoids Wild has shown up on Netflix's "Coming Soon" page, slotting the show for a Friday (August 14th) release. This seems like a wide-ranging release, with confirmations that it'll be on Netflix in the US, Australia, Canada, UK, and more. Many people have noticed it lists the Japanese VAs, but Netflix lists them even if the show is a dub. So we'll see this Friday what version of the show it is! It's also listed as "Season 1" and we don't yet know how many episodes will be within that first season. There's a lot of speculation about what this means for the series, but it's worth waiting to find out! If you haven't checked out Wild already, consider giving it a try now. We highly recommend new viewers to at least check out Episode 13, which has one of the best battles in the series.



 

- ZW Battle Card Hunter Update!

On August 5th they also released two Jushin Thunder Liger cards, as a collaboration with the pro wrestler, Jushin Thunder Liger. We've also got some large images for the Omega Rex Breaker story card, Gabrigator Agito, Zero Phantoth and Geno Breaker, and Drei Panther!

- GSC's Hagane Works Blade Liger!


Posted: 2020-07-20 23:04:31

 We have news on the Good Smile Company's Hagane Works Blade Liger! The kit will be released in November 2020, for 25,364 yen. The product weighs approximately 630 grams (before packaging) and has a total length of about 370mm. Surprisingly, it comes with the Attack Boosters already included! And there's no mention of pre-order or store-exclusive items, meaning you can pick your store of choice.

 To brush up on older details, Hagane Works is a relatively new line from Good Smile that focuses on part plastic (ABS), part diecast metal (zinc alloy) figures. The product line spans multiple series, so we may or may not see more Zoids. This could easily be a one-off. The figure is 1/72 scale, and will come fully painted. It'll also include 2 generic soldier pilots, with a double-seater cockpit. Since this product uses ABS plastic, please avoid pour-type pens for detailing, as they've been known to damage ABS plastic.

 This kit is still hitting stores for pre-order, and can only be pre-ordered until September 1st. This is because the product is being created-to-order, meaning they are basing the number of figures produced on the number of pre-orders received. So make sure that you can afford it before placing your order, as after that, you may not be able to cancel it! You can probably find it at your store of choice. Amazon JP seems to be the leader in best price Vs. shipping ratio right now, averaging just below retail after shipping.

- Next CoroCoro 100: Zero Grizis Dark Form!


Posted: 2020-07-19 22:16:24

 CoroCoro has also announced the Zero Grizis to be the basis for their next CoroCoro 100 Limited, the Zero Grizis Dark Form! As usual, there'll only be 100 copies of this kit released through the CoroCoro Silver Peel campaign. There are so many recolored parts to this Zoid that it may well be an entirely new kit instead of the typical parts swap. We will see when they start hitting Yahoo Japan! In the mean time, Zoids Official has posted two new images of this monster.



 

- New Zoids Wild Campaign Weapons!


Posted: 2020-07-19 22:16:05

 A new campaign has started in Japan. Starting on August 8th, fans who purchase 3,000 yen or more worth of Zoids Wild items at participating stores will receive the A-Z Laser Gun (top left) and A-Z Impact Laser Gun (top right), which can be combined together to create the A-Z Long Range Laser Gun Metallic Purple Version (bottom). This is our first purple weapon, and the images look like they have photoshopped colors, so we'll have to wait and see what the final version looks like. Either way, it's neat to have new colors for Zoids Wild's combinable weapons!
