Posted: 2021-08-03 19:13:58

 Chapters 4, 5, and 6 have been uploaded for Zoids Official Fan Book Volume 3!

Just as the fleet is about to sink they receive help from a mysterious Zoids unit.



 

- Zoids Galaxy Quest Planet Zi!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:13:44

 Its been a long time, but today we've posted a new update for Zoids Galaxy Quest Planet Zi! In this chapter Kugo & Co continue to fight against the monstrous chimera BLOX. Although this manga was on pause for a long while, I'm hoping to continue updating it at a steady progress from now on.



 

- HMM Zoid Story Updates!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:13:25

 We've got a chunky update for the HMM Model Kit Section! The following profiles have been updated to include not only the concept art in the instruction manuals, but also machine-translated stories. Kotobukiya significantly expands on the lore of existing Zoids with their own alternative of the Battle Story. So if you like tons of story details, it's worth checking out~ The updated profiles include: Berserk Fuehrer, Liger Zero Panzer, Lightning Saix, and Sturm Tyrann. More are being actively worked on.

- New Zoids Graphics Section!


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.

- Wild Zoid Encyclopedia Entry!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:12:41

 There's now a Wild Zoid encyclopedia entry which introduces the wild forms that make up the basis of combat Zoids. This article is still rather early into its construction. Later on I'll trim some fat from it and include more relevant info, but for now it's a start!

- Zoids Coliseum Update!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:12:23

 We received an incredibly generous contribution from fellow Zoids Fan Kuzann, who provided us with a huge number of cards for our Zoids Coliseum section! As such, we've rolled out a massive update to the card scans. Almost every volume has had new cards added, including the ever-elusive second series.



 

- New Televi-Kun Page!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:11:53

 A new page has been added for the magazine Televi-kun, which is an anime-focused magazine. This can be found under Articles > Assorted Magazines or Books > Media. Our scans mostly consist of early 2000s issues. The magazine includes its own diorama style images similar to CoroCoro & DHM, and even sometimes features unique anime-style artwork!

- CoroCoro Updates!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:11:34

 The articles section has been updated with a large number of scans from 2020 ~ 2021, featuring some awesome diorama-style images of the Wild Zero Zoids. MiraCoro 2019 has also been added.

- CoroCoro Interview With Tokuyama Update!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:11:21

 Part two of the interview with Tokuyama has been added to the articles section! You can view it here. As a refresher, this is an interview that was posted during the time that Zoids Wild was airing. It was posted in parts on CoroCoro's website, and included a lot of interesting details about Tokuyama's personal headcanons on the series, concept art of some of the Zoids, and more.

- Sniptera Melville Version!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:11:09

 The next Zoid in the Zoids Biographies lineup was announced a little while ago. The Sniptera Melville Version! This beautiful blue Sniptera is much closer to the mass production specs used in the anime, which makes a cool addition to any airforce style setup. It's scheduled for release in January 2022, for 4000 yen. You can already view it on the TakaraTomy Mall and TT's website, which also has the story posted. It was posted with one teaser image.

 In celebration of this kit, two pieces of artwork were posted to the Zoids Official twitter account. There was another (unrelated) piece posted a while ago on Father's Day.



 

- Hunter Wolf Victor Spiegel Version!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:10:55

 While the pre-order period for this particular Zoid has already ended, it received a pretty solid twitter coverage. You can check out the posts to see a lot of large photos of this nicely-detailed Zoid. Link, Link, Link, Link.



 

- HMM Liger Zero X Article!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:10:42

 Kotobukiya's upcoming Liger Zero X kit has finally been added to the website, and they've posted an in-depth article taking a look at what all the kit has to offer. The kit is scheduled to release in December for 9,680 yen. It'll be released alongside the Liger Zero Empire Marking Plus Ver. (6,930) and the X CAS Unit (armor only) for 4,200 yen.

 So what do you need to know? First, the Empire will include a couple changes from the original release. It'll now include clear colorless parts for the eyes and such. However, since the X CAS will now include black armor pieces for the jaw, the P runner will now only be molded in gold.

 Second, since we have a lot of Donner fans out there, it's worth mentioning that Kotobukiya's site only lists clear colorless shoulder armor for the Kotobukiya Direct X CAS Unit (armor only) set. These pieces aren't listed for the full X kit that includes a base body. Thankfully, it seems these exclusives are now reaching US distributors, such as USA Gundam Store! So it is much easier to obtain them than before.

 As a closing note, we've also seen the HMM Death Stinger ZS Box Art. The HMM Lightning Saix Marking Plus Version is also scheduled to be rereleased in January for 5,200 yen.



 

- Zoids Wild 2+ Book Release!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:10:20

 Zoids Wild 2+ has been released as a book! This is a manga full of tons of high-detail Zoids art centered around the Senki Zoids (Xenorex and Burning Liger). Its cover art has been revealed, and we've also gotten to see some new illustrations made just for the book!



 

- Zoids Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:38:05

 Today we've got another update to Zoids Official Fan Book 3! It has been quite a while since the last update, but that's not for nothing. Over the past couple months I've been working on completing all of the image editing for the entirety of Fan Book 3. Cleaning up images, adjusting colors, and patching together double page spreads. This will make the rest of the process go much faster! In the mean time, Chapter 3 and 4 introduces the final forms of the Republic's Liger Zero CAS Units, pitted against the monstrous Death Stinger KFD!



 

- Zoids Wild ZERO Update!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:37:49

 So, due to my undying love of modern VFX, I've gone ahead and started detailing episodes for Zoids Wild ZERO! The ZERO anime section now includes summaries for the first 6 episodes, including screencaps, character and Zoid lists, notable facts, translations of the Zoids Profile text at the end of the episodes (translations of the spoken profile overview coming soon), and translations of some of the glyphs that appear in each episode! A huge thanks to the Zoids Discord Community, which helped piece together the glyph alphabet used in the show, and Falcarius, who already did a lot of the ground work for translating the earlier episode glyphs!



 

- Zoids Wild Biographies Model Kit Section!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:37:34

 Zoids Biographies has been an interesting line so far. While we'll cover all the general releases in the product news sections below, I thought I'd go ahead and make a dedicated section for it in model kits. The amount of dedicated effort going into this series makes it distinct from the general Wild section. This new page will include machine translations of the stories, re-written for better readability. They aren't perfect, but if you'd like to see what all happens in the Biographies storyline, check it out! Right now we've got the first 3 stories available.



 

- ZWR01 Wild Liger Clive Dias Version!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:36:49

 So, since it has been so long since we've posted news, we have some catching up to do here. Most of these Biographies kits are no longer on sale, but I'll be covering the details nonetheless.

 While we've already shown the announcements for the Clive Dias liger, some interesting updates have been posted since then. First is an image of the box which shows that they'll have brown cardboard boxes with black printed details. This is also the first time we'll be seeing more solid English spellings for some of the Wild ZERO characters. Another post from Zoids Official shows what looks to be an out-of-the-box photo set. The kit and all of its painted details really do look great! Last but not least, you can now view the official product page and TT Mall page. Its pre-order period is already over, but it was sold for 4,500 yen (+ tax) and is scheduled to release in July.

- ZWR02 Fangtiger Douglas Aldridge Version!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:36:34

 Our second reveal for Biographies was the Fangtiger Douglas Aldridge Version! This kit held its pre-order period during April, and is scheduled to release in September for 4,500 Yen. Zoids Official posted the following Teasers for it: Teaser 1, Teaser 2, Teaser 3, and Teaser 4.

 This kit includes newly molded features, including the option to have the Z-O Visor or not, and has additional equipment in the form of the A-Z Rocket Launcher, All-Weather High-Powered Boosters, and A-Z Laser Guns. New attachment parts have been added to the Panthera Armor on its back to allow the weapons to be attached, and the Twinned Fangs on the back are painted with metallic red. You can view its official product page here and its TT Mall page here.

- ZWR03 Proto Beast Liger!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:36:18

 The next kit announced was Proto Beast Liger! This little Liger from the beginning of Wild ZERO is immensely popular. There've been a huge number of customs people have made for it, and it's no surprise that it received so many added posts. Both the official product page and TT Mall page are already up. The kit had its pre-order period in May, and is scheduled to release in October for 4,500 Yen. With this particular kit, Zoids Official also posted a Video teaser! Here are the initial images: Teaser 1, Teaser 2, Teaser 3, and Teaser 4.

 Let's get to the many twitter posts. This post shows a close-up of the boosters attacked to its back, using new joint parts. In the show, Leo used these to try to jump Aegis Valley. The kit includes all of the parts necessary to make a full Beast Liger, armor complete, in the Proto colors! Either with boosters, or without. You can see a comparison between Proto and normal Beast Liger here. It's the first kit in the Wild series to feature painted cylinders. The armor around the jaw has been customized to mirror how it looked in the anime. This is a nice touch, since they could've just left it an open gap where the armor attaches. The final molded parts difference is the leg armor which removes all of the white fins from the normal kit.
