- Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:54

 You can now read Chapter 1 of Zoids Official Fan Book 3 in the books section! This has been a highly anticipated chapter following Ray Gregg and his Shield Liger DCS-J, and was featured in a couple of the more recent HMM box arts. So give it a read if you want to see the origin of the HMM box art!



 

- 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.



 

- Zoids Fuzors Update!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:28

 Episodes 11 ~ 14 have been added to to the Zoids Fuzors section! This includes screencaps, episode summaries, character and Zoid lists, notable facts, and videos showing the difference between the US / DVD release of the show the Japanese / blu-ray release. We're starting to get to the overarching story of this series!



 

- Zoids Fuzors Concept Art!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:16

 Along with four added episode details, Volumes 1 ~ 4 of the Japanese DVD concept art has been added to the Fuzors-specific concept art page! I'll probably make a dedicated page for these eventually. Huge thanks to Falcarius for providing the images! We see a lot of the early series characters, and even a couple things from the upcoming videos. As usual, new concepts are marked by a green border.

- Hobby Link Japan Affiliation!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:30:59

 The Iron Bible has joined the HLJ Affiliation program! I wanted to be up front about this since it does award us a small (3%) commission, but for a long time I've been struggling to find sites that reliably stocked the new Wild kits. Though they sell out fast in all stores, HLJ seems to be the most reliable in terms of getting them quickly, aside from maybe Amazon JP. In all prices we checked today, they were cheaper than the links we already had anyway.

 So how does this change things? It doesn't, really, it's just a nice bonus. We already link to HLJ in the pre-order table, and their currently endless storage is a huge benefit while shipping is struggling on a global level. This infinite storage is common with proxy services, but not so much with stores. The only difference will be a few more items linking to HLJ, but we'll always provide the best options for our visitors. If HLJ's prices are not competitive, we won't link those kits. Plain and simple. We also have other stores over on the names page as needed! In the mean time, I'm happy to affiliate with this store.

- Zoids Sticker Gum!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:30:37

 I've added a page to the Assorted category for Zoids Sticker Gum! These little square stickers were sold in candy packets in Japan, and you might've seen them floating around on auction sites. We're only missing a couple, and the page includes translations and images.

- Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:49:17

 We've officially begun work on Zoids Official Fan Book 3! With a tiny update to start with. Everything before the first chapter, which includes some rather cool images from the poster double-page spreads, the prologue, etc.



 

- Zoids Index Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:49:05

 As the Fan Books move forward, I'll be adding details from the earlier books to the index and info areas of the site! This time we've got the Brachios, Hel Digunner, Molga, Red Horn, and Redler. These profiles all include equipment information, battle story info, stats, etc.

- Character Index Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:48:53

 The Character Index is also finally getting some updates! Characte profiles have been added for Arthur Borgmann, Brick Spantz, L.G. Halford, Payle Geordot, Stefan Skorzeny, and Tommy Paris. Their profiles include battle story information up to Official Fan Book 2, the Zoids they've piloted, and images of the pilots where available. Not all of them actually got official artwork.

- Zoids Encyclopedia Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:48:37

 Also getting some life is the Encyclopedia page. An article has been added for the 2nd Independent High-Speed Combat Battalion, Mount Olympus, and the Western Continent War (up to OFB1) to cover an overview of Fan Book events and details. In an effort to reduce the amount of inaccurate information floating around about certain topics, articles have also been added for the Leomasters, Organoid System, and Ultimate X. These articles include some details shared by Falcarius, but the rest is based off of our work on the Fan Books so far. So if you notice anything incorrect, please let us know!

 To clear up confusion about the Organoid System, this page only includes information based on the Official Fan Books. The anime version of the Organoid System is filed under the Ultimate X page, which discusses fan theories, details mentioned in the anime, and instances where the UX Zoids acted independently.

- 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.

- Zoids Fuzors Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:48:12

 Episodes 8 ~ 10 have been added to the Zoids Fuzors section. As usual, the pages include character and Zoid lists, a short summary, notable facts, and a video illustrating the difference between the English and Japanese versions of the show. Oh, and copious amount of screenshots, of course.

- Zoids Fuzors Concepts!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:47:59

 With the episode update, the Fuzors section has also had a revamp to its Concept Art page, bringing it in line with our newer series pages. Characters, Zoids, Locations, and Assorted concepts all get their own pages, though we don't have any in the last 2 categories (yet). A good number of new concepts have been added, including earlier concepts of Amy (with a different design), Blade, color concepts of RD and Sweet, Arosaurer, Boldguard, Brachio Rex, Dark Spiner, as well as some animation concepts for how the Zoids should move.



 

- CoroCoro Updates!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:47:49

 Partial scans have been added for the September and December 2002 issues of CoroCoro, as well as the January, February, and May 2005 issues. These were scanned from a lot of pre-cut pages obtained a while ago, so are missing some advertisements and the manga pages. These include some awesome Liger Zero Falcon, Energy Liger, Gairyuki, and Genesis dioramas. It really shines these Zoids in a whole new light! And I'm not just saying that because there's a Gairyuki below.

- 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.

- Official Fan Book Volume 2 Update!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:11:19

 Official Fan Book 2 has updated with the final 3 chapters! This includes the Zoids Remodeling Project, which features a huge number of custom Zoids, including some that didn't appear in the story itself, but may still be familiar, like Climber Wolf and Spark Liger! It also features a Strength Comparison Chart for a huge number of Zoids that've appeared in the story thus far. We've put this in image format and in text format, for the sake of viewing convenience. And with that, Fan Book 2 is all wrapped up! I'll be moving on to Fan Book 3 very soon, and thank you so much to everyone who has been reading along thus far!



 

- Zoids Wild EX-ZERO Update!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:11:06

 Chapter 5 of Zoids Wild EX-ZERO has been added, along with scans for HJM's October 2020 issue! This is the second to last chapter, but don't worry, there's plenty more planned. In this chapter, Shishio finally awakens, but his Liger does not. Will they be able to awaken the newly remodeled Armd Liger before it can be destroyed by the enemy sniper's Gun Jaguar?



 

- Dengeki Hobby Magazine Update!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:10:48

 The Dengeki Hobby Magazine section has been updated with scans for the October 2004 and June 2006 issues. This includes some Zoids Generations content, BLOX customs, BLOX Geno Saurer and Shield Liger introduction, Mercy Rabbit art, Rebirth Century customs, artwork, and story, as well as the concept art for Brastle Tiger! I know a lot of people have been wanting to see larger scans of this fierce tiger, so check it out in the 2004 issue! I've also replaced the April 2009 scans with new ones. Many of our magazines were scanned on an old scanner that bleached out almost all colors, and I'm slowly working on replacing them with better ones (save for the HMM Geno Breaker scans, because those stark white claws and teeth just can't be saved.)



 

- Zoids Collection DX: Dragoon Nest Review!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:10:37

 A review has been added to the NJR Model Kits section for the Zoids Collection DX "Dragoon Nest" playset! I'm really glad to be able to review this kit, and hope to someday pick up the other playsets. It has a surprising amount of articulation and gimmicks.

- Official Fan Book Volume 2 Update!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:54:58

 A new chapter has been added to Official Fan Book 2. This Chapter, Super Scoop!!, discusses the next generation Zoids, including the birth of CAS-focused units like the Liger Zero, as well as products leading up to it, like the Elephander, one of the first Zoids to introduce CAS-like gear. It also goes over some of the products released during that time, such as the large DX playsets.
