- High-End Master Model Release


 In 2006 Kotobukiya launched its new HMM "High-End Master Model" series. Over the years, this has become the longest-running model kit series in the history of Zoids, and has been the tide to carry fans through many dry spells for other Zoids media. The line features reimagined designs from earlier series, including some original variations or versions of Zoids that were never realized in model kit form before now.

 With this series you can expect fully poseable model kits with tons of movable gimmicks, and a high number of parts. The older motorized kits tended to average around 60 ~ 100 parts. By comparison, many HMMs in the Liger size range from 400 ~ 550 parts. The line also features gorgeous custom-drawn box art, mostly by the artist Mercy Rabbit. Each kit reimagines its battle story lore and offers unique details about the specific Zoid.

Instruction Legend

 This image appears in most Instruction Manuals. Keep an eye on these icons to see where the kit may demand closer attention. While these are still snap-together kits they may require glue to make sure some parts stay firmly attached (they can otherwise be loose and create sagging parts). A good hobby knife and sprue cutters/nippers are recommended.
