- 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.

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!



 

- 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.

- ZWR04 Hunter Wolf Victor Spiegel Version!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:36:01

 The fourth, and currently-available pre-order for Zoids Wild Biographies is the Hunter Wolf Victor Spiegel Version! My personal favorite, this kit is once again based on the pilot version from Zoids Wild ZERO. You can view its official product page here and its TT Mall page here. The kit is scheduled to release in November for 5,390 Yen (Tax Included).

 Like Aldridge's Fangtiger, this kit includes the option to have the Z-O Visor or not. It's equipped with the A-Z Super Electromagnetic Blade, All-Weather High-Powered Boosters, and the Sniptera's Force Barrel Gatlings. New molded attachment points have been added to its back to accomodate the additional weapons. The A-Z Super Electromagnetic Blades are painted in red metallics. It includes the head parts to make the original Hunter Wolf (without the ZO Visor).
* Spelling is still out on this one. The video uses Spieger, but the Fangtiger video also uses both Aldridge and Aldrich, so we'll wait to see what spelling the box uses.

- HMM Rev Raptor Updates!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:35:44

 Back in April, LABO posted a blog entry on the HMM Rev Raptor! This shows off a painted sample of the upcoming model kit, which is scheduled to release in September for 4,800 Yen. It's the first completely new small-scale Zoid since the Pteras Bomber, as Godos and Iguan both reuse parts.

- HMM Shadow Fox Marking Plus Ver.!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:35:26

 A LABO Article was posted earlier this month to discuss the newly released HMM Shadow Fox Marking Plus! This kit, which features a color-faded version of the original Fox box art, now comes with a ton of new decals. The decals are also in colors that will work well with the HMM Fire Fox.

- Blade Liger AB Reissue!

 This article also announced the reissue of the Blade Liger AB Version, which released in February 2020! This kit will be re-released in October of this year, so if you missed it the first time, grab one now!



 

- HMM Raven Raptor!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:35:03

 Just a few days ago we received news on the HMM Raven Raptor! During the earlier announcements, many people thought this might turn out to be a Koto Exclusive, both because if being announced at the same time, and because of earlier trends. However, it seems it'll be a normal release, which is fantastic! The kit is scheduled to release in November 2021 for 6,300 Yen, and will include a Pile Bunker. Both Rev Raptor and Raven Raptor will feature new box art by Mercy Rabbit. As an exciting development, the blog also mentions their plans to post an introduction for the Liger Zero X next month!

- HMM Pile Bunker Unit!

 The Pile Bunker is also scheduled to release in November for 1,500 yen, alongside the release of the HMM Raven Raptor. These weapons attach to two attachment arms on the lower back. You can attach two at once, or use the other slot for radar parts, etc. The weapon is also compatible with Iguan and Godos, who are able to actually hold the huge weapon, holding on to the bars along the top. It includes original decals as well! At this time, Koto has said they have no intention to release the earlier-made Customize Parts as separate CP sets. So the Molga's Cannory Unit, Command Wolf's Attack Unit, and so on.

- Zoids Wild EX-ZERO Book!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:34:49

 Zoids Wild EX-ZERO, the official side-story published in Hobby Japan Magazine during 2020, has announced a brand new book! This book will include the entire story as it was posted earlier, as well as some additional content, apparently, including a new story written exclusively for the book. For now we've removed our EX-ZERO section out of respect for this upcoming sale. At the time that it was posted, I honestly hadn't expected a book! It's scheduled to be released in late July for 3,300 Yen, and is currently available on sites like HLJ and Amazon JP! HJM's twitter posted some clean images of the first Chapter, while Revolver posted teasers of the new story, Senki EX, which is still running on HJM.

Synopsis: Republican unit Blood Blood Corps is a unique task force with the intent purpose of capturing and testing upcoming Imperial technology. The group is led by Shishio Ryuu and his Armd Liger, a specialized liger with auxiliary arms used to snatch weapons off of its opponents from the Empire. As the story evolves, they discover the earliest Laser weapons, considered to be a gateway weapon to Zi's most devastating power, the Charged Particle Cannon. The Blue Bloods make it a top priority to capture this laser equipment, to prevent the Republic from losing irreparable distance in the arms race. With each new battle, Shishio's Armd Liger gains more and more equipment from its defeated opponents. Every chapter features a newly remodeled and evolved Armd Liger. Necessary changes for our team to keep up their fight with Lieutenant Cutter, a strange young man from the Empire who has an unusual effect on the Zoids that he pilots.

Timeline: Zoids Wild EX-ZERO is unique in that it's carefully crafted to fit within the world of Zoids Wild ZERO, the anime. The story begins before the anime series and makes numerous references to the show. This includes a new Regeneration Cube side-story, a chapter exploring the recovery of additional Genospino parts, and ultimately even meeting characters from the Zoids Wild ZERO anime. If you liked the anime, and understand Japanese, you'll enjoy this story. If you don't understand Japanese, it still has lots of nice diorama style images (as seen in this post), customizing examples, and hopefully more!



 

- Zoids Wild 2+ Book!


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

 EX-ZERO isn't the only book! We'll also be getting a compilation book of the Zoids Wild 2+ manga soon! The book will be released late July for 670 Yen, and is available on AmazonJP. The manga has been serialized in CoroCoro Comic over the past year, and as of the August issue, the manga will end. It features tons of high-detail Zoids art and I highly recommend picking it up! Check out some sample images here and here.

Synopsis: Zoids Wild 2+ picks up shortly after the end of Zoids Wild 2, following Tetsuro, pilot of the Xenorex, and his young partner, Arkya. They're members of ZIB, a secret organization that tracks and fights crimes involving Zoids. The world has gotten more complicated after the planet's magnetic field began to increase, so they have their work cut out from them. Especially when it comes to the new enemy of their story, the Burning Liger, a mysterious Zoid with a mind of its own that seeks to eliminate the ZCF.

- Zoids Wild Senki Episode 6!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:30:20

 Zoids Wild Senki Episode 6 is live! This episode featured some amazing and absolutely brutal combat, so I highly recommend giving it a watch. The way that Xenorex fights is awesome, and the manner that the Burning Ligers express themselves is also neat. The official website has been updating occasionally, featuring Zoid images and cast listings, etc.

- ZW57 Xeno Evolution Arms "Buster Unit"!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:30:05

 A review video has been posted for the ZW57 Xeno Evolution Arms "Buster Unit" and the ZW58 Xenorex Buster XA! These kits are scheduled to release on March 27th for 1,000 yen and 3,500 yen respectively, but unfortunately stock has been very low. I don't think any of the standard stores still have them available, so you may need to do some shopping around, or order through the TakaraTomy Mall.

- New Burning and Xeno Limited Photos!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:29:35

 The official twitter account has posted new photos of the Burning Liger "Legend Blue" and Xenorex "Death Red"! These kits really do look nice in the opposing colors. They're part of the recent Japan-only campaign, raffled in exchange for shipped in barcodes from applicable Zoids-related purchases.



 

- HMM Sturm Tyrann Rerelease!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:18:28

 Kotobukiya has announced a rerelease of their HMM Sturm Tyrann kit for July, sold at 12,000 yen! This kit has been highly anticipated in spite of only being rereleased a short time ago.



 

- Zoids BCH All Star Battle Finale!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:18:09

 Zoids Battle Card Hunter has announced that it'll be running an "All Star Battle" campaign. This campaign begins on April 1st, and will rerelease over 50 Wild Rare cards from the earlier sets! Unfortunately, this will be the final update for Zoids Wild Battle Card Hunter. The game is set to be discontinued starting in May. This is a shame, as the game had many cool variations, attack styles, and has even been running its own story. Its been an amazing ride, and the game ran for quite a long time. A huge shoutout to the creative individuals who worked on it!



 

- ZW Biographies: Wild Liger Updates!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:47:24

 A new video has been released for the Wild Liger Clive Diaz Spec., the first Zoid of the Zoids Wild Biographies line. This Liger is based on Diaz's Liger from Zoids Wild Zero, and the video shows off all the custom work done for it. The video also mentions expanding upon lore that wasn't able to be covered during the course of the show, such as how Diaz came to pilot this Liger. The kit is available on the TakaraTomy Mall for 4,950, and while it is scheduled to be released in late July, you only have until March 31st to order!
