- ZWR06 Psycho Genospino!


Posted: 2021-10-24 19:47:09

 On September 29th, Zoids Official tweeted this teaser of the next Zoids Wild Biographies kit. This kit is still available on the TT Mall for 9,350 yen, and will remain available until November 15th. It's scheduled to be released in March of 2022. You can read the Japanese version of the Biographies story on the TakaraTomy Website.


- Promo Video

 In the last couple days a promo video was released for the Psycho Genospino reveal, which mentioned the end of Zoids Wild Senki. It spent a short time describing the history of the Psycho Genospino, including that it inherited the Zoid Factor of the Zero Grizis, and is able to absorb the Zoid Factor of other Zoids using the purple Reactor Bones. What was formerly a flamethrower on the default Genospino has been converted into an Infinity Buster, a weapon that gathers the absorbed Zoid Factor from its body and fires it. The Psycho Geno Sawzer on the back is also able to improve its sharpness by charging the blades with Zoid Factor.

 For now, it seems implied that the Psycho Genospino story is the conclusion of the Zoids Wild Senki series. The end of the below video mentioned that TT will be publishing a new Photorama sequel to Zoids Wild Senki. Given that this is essentially what the Biographies line has been so far (stories with photo diorama images), we can probably expect it to be the same format, possibly carried out through Zoids Wild Biographies.

 The story and video also elude to a new lion-type that the Republic planned to donate to the Empire. This will likely be a new variant like the Psycho Genospino, but we don't know much yet.

- Second Air Stand River Battle!


Posted: 2021-10-24 19:46:41

 Kotobukiya has announced a second Air Stand River Battle! Stand River is a massive event in Japan where people bring together their HMM Zoids and display them as either Republic or Empire, earning points for their respective side. At the end of the event, the side with the most points wins! *(There are no prizes, this is a for-fun fan participation event!)

 Last year, due to the global situation, this event was held online with a massive gallery of customs. Some international fans entered, and it seems that this was quite welcomed by Kotobukiya! This year, they've invited international fans to join, publishing the entry / rules page in both Japanese and English.

Event Overview

  So, here's the important info for the event. They intend to stream the results of the battle, and post a gallery of the submitted works. They plan to introduce the HMM Gilraptor prototype, and make a first-time announcement for various new products! They'll also be introducing a sample of the HMM Liger Zero X.

Submission Details

  For entering the event, check the link above for a full overview of the rules. The submission period ends on October 31st. For many international fans, this will be roughly around the 30th, because Japan time is quite a ways ahead. Be sure to take the time difference into account! While you can view the full rules in the link above, the most important one is that the work must not use other copyrighted materials in the build, including other Koto series like Hexa Gear, or other franchises such as Gundam, etc. This includes the decals and display base. They recommend a flat color background if possible.

It's also lightweight enough for it to hang off of other objects without assistance, which is fun. If you haven't ordered the item yet, it's available domestically on Amazon as a pre-order for $49.99 (shipping included), scheduled to be released on November 24th. If you want it now, it's also available on Amazon JP for 4,091 Yen + Shipping.

Posted: 2021-08-03 19:13:08

 We've added a new page to the Books section (under Stories - Magazines, Pamphlets, Etc.) for the Zoids Graphics! Better known as the OJR Graphics, these little pamphlets included valuable product info, stories, unique artwork, and more. We'll be starting with the Introduction Manual (currently uploaded) and will be moving on to the fun stuff from there. The scans used in this section are courtesy of Falcarius, who collected this incredibly rare series and was kind enough to share with the community! We'll be providing them in 2 formats: The original Japanese, and in an edited English version that uses machine translations. You can view them in either.

- Zoids Index Update!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:12:54

 We've got a wave of Zoid Index updates, rounding off the Imperial Zoids that appeared in Official Fan Book 1! This includes the Death Saurer, Gator, Helcat, Iguan, Iron Kong, and Saicurtis. All profiles include battle story information, weapon profiles, concepts or wild Zoid info, etc. The Helcat also includes a color chart.

 During this process I also went back and added Wild Zoid info to the Gojulas, Gordos, and Red Horn. We'll probably be adding speculative segments to each Zoid index that has a corresponding species match to the wild Zoids featured in the Zoids Bible. These are not all confirmed 100% to be the basis for those used in the military, but there are some very obvious direct references. Either way, I felt that this was information that people would love to see. I'll try to include specific notes on any that aren't confirmed ancestors.
