- 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

 Multi Connector Unit   (pegs on back)

- Korean Limited: Death Rex Gold Version!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:57:32

 Daewon, who handles the domestic Zoids releases for Korea, has posted an exciting announcement! They'll be releasing their first truly Korean exclusive model kit, the limited edition Death Rex Gold Version! This gold chrome Rex will be releasing for 79,500 Won (roughly $70 USD) later this month on the 26th. It is limited to domestic shipping within Korea, so international fans will need to find a shopping service. I've personally not had any experience with this, so am unfortunately unable to provide any recommendations.



 

- CoroCoro 100: Burning Liger Ltd Black Gold Ver.!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:57:16

 The December issue of CoroCoro revealed our first CoroCoro 100 limited of the new line, the Burning Liger Limited Black Gold Version! This black Burning Liger with added gold parts will be available as a Silver Peel.

- New Zoids Wild Weapon Sets!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:56:59

 Two new weapon sets have been announced for the Zoids Wild series! The ZW49 Missile + Laser Combat Unit and the ZW50 Cannon + Laser Combat Unit! These include brand new weapons that we've seen in the short monthly anime episodes of Zoids Wild Senki. They feature almost the same weapons between them in different colors. They are scheduled to release on December 12th for 1000 Yen.

 A video posted online showed that they also have a couple of pieces not shown in the video. This includes the Attachment Frame (rereleased from earlier sets in red-blue) and the Flexible Joint, which is a ball joint that allows the weapons to swivel in quite a few directions! This, combined with the Conversion Caps that fit over a Zoids cap to turn them into a standard 3mm peg means tons of customization options, even for older Tomy kits.

Universal Weapons: Available in both sets.
 A-Z 4-Barrelled Short Laser Gatling x1
 A-Z Knight Sword x1
 A-Z Laser Drill x1
 A-Z Laser Shot Gun x2
 A-Z Mega Shield x1
 Attachment Frame (count unknown)
 Compact Ion Booster x2
 Conversion Caps x2
 Flexible Joint (count unknown)
 Support Gun Pod x1

ZW49 Exclusive: A-Z 3-Shot Guidance Missiles (Blue)

ZW50 Exclusive: A-Z Long Cannon (Red)

 These weapons sets include some weapons from more expensive kits, for use on other Zoids. The missiles from the blue set are from the Omega Rex, and the cannons from the red set are from the Genospino.

 The larger weapons are designed to attach to the front of the CDW Impact Gatling, spinning along with the motorized function. This includes the 4-Barrelled Short Laser Gatling and the A-Z Laser Drill for certain. The A-Z Knight Sword can be included as a knife within a case, or have the case fasten around the handle to turn it into a longsword.

Posted: 2020-11-23 19:56:30

 TakaraTomy posted a build review video for the Gilraptor LC, too! Although they didn't have any LC-specific concept art, it was interesting to see that they included some new Gilraptor concept art. This has been added to the anime section for Zoids Wild, and marked with a green border!

- Zoids Concept Art Exhibit!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:56:17

 A surprising event has been announced, a Zoids Concept Art Exhibit! This intriguing event will be held from December 12th through January 24th, and will include both in-person visits and virtual tickets run by GoFa (the Gallery of Fantastic Art). The concept art exhibit will include images in a style like the Concept Art Books, which is how the designer Tokuyama has started off many of the Zoid designs from the Wild series. An article by Akiba-Souken shows off one of the pieces, a never-before-seen concept art of Fangtiger.

 Tickets are 900 yen (or 1,200 for same-day tickets) for visitation and 300 yen for virtual. The exhibit will showcase roughly 160 original Zoids works, including the Evolution of Zoids, Battle of Planet Zoid, Zoids Wild Concepts, Infinity Blast, Art of Planet Zoid, and Art settings. There are also approximately 10 original drawings shown.

 Tokuyama will be a guest speaker along with guest artist Yuji Kaida. There will be a diorama exhibit, as well as limited event goods, including the HMM Saber Tiger Concept Art Color Version. Autographed images will be available (for a fee) and participants who attend the actual venue (not through virtual venue) will receive 5 random art cards. People who purchase the Tiger at the event will receive a yet-undisclosed super special bonus.



 

HMM Saber Tiger CA Color Version!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:56:03

 In an unexpected update, Kotobukiya announced that there would be a new Saber Tiger variation released at the Zoids Concept Art Exhibit! This unique "Saber Tiger CA Color Ver." is based off of the Concept Art Book iteration of the design, complete with black-red color separation. To achieve this look, the kit has several sprues cast in both black and red, similar to how the Liger Zero EM was handled earlier. You can use the all-red sprues to create a Saber that looks quite close to the original motorized colors!

 This kit is being handled similarly to the Bone Zoids. It'll have an early pre-sale at the venue starting December 24th, and will then be made available on Kotobukiya Direct at a later date. This means you'll need a proxy to order. It's also worth mentioning that the CA does not include decals.



- HMM Release and Re-Release News!


 Hobby Japan Magazine posted a nice, short video looking at the HMM Wild Liger. It's a fully finished example with custom painting and detailing.

- Zoids Wild Senki Website!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:55:13

 A brand new website has been added for Zoids Wild Senki! This page is located on TakaraTomy's official Zoids site, and contains images of some of the Zoids that've appeared so far, with brief profiles and episode summaries. I've included rough google translations for those segments below!


Episode 1:
 With the global population boom, energy resources have been depleted, and frequent local conflicts have surfaced as the Earth is once again entering a full-scale war between the Zoids of the Republic and the Empire, the two major powers.

 In the current war, the Imperial Army has become the lesser force due to the extraordinary activity of the Republican Army's primary machine, the Gilraptor LC. In order to break through the fierce battlefield, the Imperial Army has succeeded in restoring their new lion-type Zoid, the Burning Liger.

 An order to sortie is given to the Burning Ligers, with the intent to annihilate the Republican Army Zoids led by the Gilraptor LC. The battle between the Burning Liger and the Gilraptor LC is about to begin.


Episode 2:
 Gilraptor LC confronts the Burning Liger. Their first match was a fierce back-and-forth battle.

 In the midst of all this, an explosion echoes, and the two machines brace themselves.

 An extraterrestrial Zoid, the ancient emperor dragon, Zero Grizis, who once threatened to destroy the earth, has reappeared.

 The fighting spirit of the Zoids involved in the war awakened the Zero Grizis from its long sleep. Now, as a result of its instincts, the destructive god continues to run wild.

 The Zero Army once led by Zero Grizis also revives, and intervenes in the war between the two great powers, and the outcome of this battle seems to be a three-way war...

 In the mean time, the Republic's new Zoid, which is currently under restoration appears...




Burning Liger: (Lion Type)
 A lion-type Zoid restored by the Imperial Army. It has a lightly armored body, large claws, and several types of small powerful auxiliary weapons. It's equipped with a ZO Visor, so it's possible to draw out the power of the lion species at the rider's discretion, and the Power Cylinders of its limbs allow it to perform agile movements in battle. The Blow Claw has been remodeled to a larger size to give it a stronger impact against enemy Zoids.

 In addition, it's the first machine to be equipped with a Core Drive System recently developed by the Imperial Army, and its Core Drive weapons can be swapped out.


Burning Liger Impact Gatling Conversion Mode:
 A Burning Liger unit equipped with a Core Drive weapon, the Impact Gatling. After equipping it to the Burning Liger it gains an instantaneous and dramatic improvement in combat power. By firing Ion Converging Bullets that are composed of converted core energy, powerful artillery from medium range becomes possible. The Burning Liger can withstand the weight of the Impact Gatling thanks to its legs being reinforced by the Power Cylinders.


Gilraptor LC: (Deinonychus Type)
 A deinonychus type Zoid that acts as the main unit of the Republican Army. The Gilraptor LC (Laser Custom) is a custom machine equipped with an AZ Laser Gun and an AZ Impact Laser Gun. It's capable of high-speed movements using the Jet Boosters on its back and the excellent spring-performance of its legs, and it's skilled at short-term decisive battles, specializing in hit-and-run tactics.

 Basically, it's good at launching assaults against enemy armies using only a single unit, but it's also able to coordinate with multiple units for an attack, and the head radar on its head, which has highly developed sensory functions, allows it to reliably kill while keeping track of the movements of both friend and foe.


Gilraptor LC Wild Blast Mode:
 Gilraptor LC, which has activated its Instinct Release (Wild Blast). A form that specializes in close-range combat by deploying the claw-shaped weapons, the Wing Shotels, on its back while accelerating with the Jet Boosters on its back. It can cut through enemy Zoids with endless quick strikes.


 

- Zoids Wild Infinity Blast Updates!


Posted: 2020-11-23 19:54:46

 Zoids Wild Infinity Blast is just about to release (on November 26th) and some places are even charging for the item already! As we hit release week it may be worth keeping an eye out for stores stocking small stocks of the Rising Liger set. Although all are sold out currently, within the last week BicCamera JP, Toys R Us JP, and HLJ all got a small lot of sets. They sell out quick, so check around often!



- Zoids Wild Infinity Coloseum!

 There've been several Infinity Coliseum, an event where viewers share ZiNA codes of customs they've designed in the game, and the hosts use them in tournament-style combat! Episode 6 was particularly interesting. After the battles, Perfect Human Katayama was invited to feature some of the Zoids model kits along with Dr. T, a popular figure from CoroCoro in the early 2000s. The panel also had a special guest, Mitsutoshi Tokuyama, who has played an active designing role in the Zoids Wild series and been a prominent figure of the franchise for decades. In this panel he shows off special, never-before-seen concept art (in the style of the concept art books). You can see this around the 29 minute mark. Chances are, some of these will be seen at the exhibit as well!

Episode 7 showed off the old Tomy motorized Death Stinger. Episode 8 was also Death Stinger focused.

Episode 9 took a brief look at the Quest menu, which includes Quest, Continuous Battle, and Training. The Quest menu shows a continuous progression, starting at Chapter 1, and features numerous pieces of concept art in the style of the Concept Art Books. It also reveals a currency system (Zeny). There are various quest menus including weapons and junk. The battlefields are designed to look like you're actually out in the field, which is a nice visual design. Like the former game, you can retry the battle if you aren't satisfied with the results.

Episode 10 shows off the multi-Zoid battles. This is comparable to King of Blast, where you fight 10 Raptors that constantly respawn. In Infinity Blast, it seems you can take on multiple Zoids at once! This mission type shows up to 4 on the field at once, with a total count of 20 in each round.
