- 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.
