CoroCoro Limited: Liger The Arthur!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-15 10:25:51

 This month's issue of CoroCoro announced an interesting Zoid: A Rising Liger variation called Liger The Arthur. They also posted an article showing off the full image for it on their website!

 The Arthur is a limited kit obtained through a "paid service", scheduled around the May issue of CoroCoro. The closest comparison for this seems to be the Black Rhimos and Bearfighter from the NJR, where people could mail in their forms from CoroCoro to purchase the kits. Although, it's worth noting that back in the day, these kits weren't listed as "Limited", and were available to all who submitted an application. We don't know yet how limited the Arthur will be, or if Limited simply means "limited to everyone who submits an application, during the relevant time" which is certainly a possibility.

 When it was first announced, we speculated that this might refer to the Pal-Shop, also known as CoroCoro Premier (Shogakukan's mail-order site). However, after comparing the double page spread to the one where the Death Rex Purple Dragon Form was announced for rerelease (in the same shop), this seems unlikely. The Rex made multiple direct references to CoroCoro Premier, including photos of the shop. If this were going to be the outlet used, it seems likely that it would specify this clearly, as they did before. At the moment, it may end up being an actual physical mail-order item.

 On a positive note, Arthur has a lot of additional parts! This includes a basic Rising Liger with silver armor, blue secondary armor, and blue caps. The Liger also includes a new armored visor, a huge lance-like weapon on the back, new tail armor, new paw armor, etc. We'll post more as we get more information!
