- Three Tigers Legend Videos!


Posted: 2022-01-09 00:10:04

 The Three Tigers Legend is a series of promotional videos dispersed between limited DVDs that were included with the Brastle Tiger and Rayse Tiger, and the Zoids VS III opening. We previously did a splice together of all of these videos, trying to piece them into correct order. However, in a fascinating turn of events, Twitter blog After10yearsL posted videos of the Whitz Tiger, Rayse Tiger, and Brastle Tiger featuring brand-new scenes that were never included in the officially released media! Definitely check these out for some new 'Tiger content. A new splice-together with corrected scenes will be added at a later time~

 Kotobukiya's Shield Liger Marking Plus is now popping up for pre-order, retailing for 6,000 yen with a May release date. A recent LABO article talks about the kit. It'll come with new decals, including those from the Masterpiece Shield Liger. Clear colorless parts will be included in addition to the clear orange canopy and such. The kit will be released in newly molded colors, with a darker blue closer to the Tomy Shield Liger, silver claws and teeth, darker gray (nearly black) for the legs and gray for the body.



 

- Dark Horn Rerelease!


Posted: 2022-01-09 00:09:12

 Koto also announced a rerelease of their Dark Horn! The Horns really are a cool kit to build. It'll be released in June for 6,800 yen. Pre-order links have been added to the table at the bottom of the page.



 

- Zoids Wild Biographies: Rising Liger Panzer!


Posted: 2022-01-09 00:08:54

 Back in November, Zoids Official teased a new Zoids Wild Biographies kit, which turned out to be the Rising Liger Panzer! The story is already up for this kit (in the link, it's in Japanese) and the kit is available for pre-order for 5,500 Yen (including tax) until January 31st. Since this is through TTMall, you'll need to use a proxy like White Rabbit Express to order. It's scheduled for release in late May 2022.

Second Stand River Battle Conclusion!


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:16:36

 Stand River has concluded, and the battle ended in the Republic's victory, with 704 points to the Empire's 579. There were so many amazing customs entered into both sides, which you can view here. I highly recommend browsing through all of the pages, because there are some amazing gems hidden in there, like the Bigasauru Mk-2 and the King Liger inspired kits! I'll leave the news post containing a link to the stream beneath all of the announcements if you want to check it out.


 

- HMM Shield Liger Marking Plus


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:16:11

 In a suiting turn of events, the first new Zoid announced at Stand River is the Shield Liger Marking Plus Ver.! Shield Liger was also the first HMM Zoid to be announced, and according to Koto's website, it hasn't been rereleased since the launch of the series in 2006. From first glance it looks like the MPV might be a slightly darker, richer blue, closer to the original Tomy motorized kit, but this is hard to confirm with photos alone.



 

- HMM EHI-7 Reddra


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:15:53

 Fans have been asking for more flying Zoids for a long time, and Redler has been high on that list! Now we have official announcements, starting with the EHI-7 Reddra! This kit has a ton of seamless articulation, which adds so much personality to it. The default Reddra comes with two beam guns for the wings.


 

- HMM EZ-005 Redler


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:15:39

 A separate release has been confirmed for the EZ-005 Redler! Aside from sporting new colors, this version of the Redler will also include additional weaponry. What we saw in the stream was a gun for the chin and two sets of missiles for the wings. At the moment the Redler is still in development, so its equipment specifics may be subject to change.


 

- HMM Zoids CP Booster Cannon Set


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:15:14

 With the announcement of our two Redler variants, we also got an announcement for a Zoids Customize Part Booster Cannon Set! This CP shows some great developments in the handling of Zoid-specific weapons. It uses standard 3mm hardpoints which means that it can be equipped to a wide variety of Zoids. The attachments can be configured differently so that, for example, the weapons are oriented in a wider / flatter position for a more streamlined appearance.


 

- HMM Green Horn AB


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:14:56
 Continuing their trend towards Yuji Kaida kits, Kotobukiya has also announced a Green Horn AB! This kit came with some surprises. It features a new frill (an anti-charged particle shield) and additional tail equipment. Many people have anticipated the Green Horn for a while now, and it's looking great~

(By the way, we have been receiving inquiries about fixing our webcomic links. I'll try to get that done soon! Sorry for the inconvenience in the mean time.)



 

- HMM Customize Part Attack Booster


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:14:40

 With the Green Horn came the announcement of a brand new customize part, featuring the Blade Liger's Attack Booster! However, this kit will include some improvements over the original Blade Liger version. It will now make use of more universal connector types, meaning the Attack Boosters can be equipped to multiple other Zoids, not just the Blade Liger.


 

- HMM König Wolf


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:14:27

 The HMM König Wolf has finally been announced! Compared to other HMM Zoids this kit has a rather faithful design to the older model, refined with HMM-level detail. Of course, with big chompy teeth. This wolf has been highly requested by fans for years, placing high in Kotobukiya's yearly product surveys. It's funny that its rival, Liger Zero X, was released just in time to the steal the 053 slot in the HMM lineup, given that the wolf was RZ-053 in the old kits.


 

- HMM König Wolf Heavy Arms


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:14:05

 Kotobukiya also announced the Heavy Arms variant! This blue wolf beat MK-II to the punch, and includes both of the customize parts that earn it such a fitting name. Not only that, but Kotobukiya's version of the HA will include brand new parts never commercialized in model kit form until now. It will come with a double-seater cockpit that was seen in the additional comic, which was included in DVD form in the original (motorized) Heavy Arms release. Kotobukiya reaching out to publish never-before-materialized variations is something that I think appeals to a lot of fans. We never imagined we'd get kits like the HMM Psycho Geno Saurer, and I can't express how much I appreciate them putting this extra care into their products!


 

- CP Dual Sniper Rifle & 5-Shot Missile Pod Set


Posted: 2021-12-18 03:13:49

 With the announcement of the König Wolf and König Wolf Heavy Arms, Koto announced the release of the Dual Sniper Rifle & 5-Shot Missile Pod set. Formerly these equipment items were sold separately for the motorized kits, but Koto will now be releasing them as a singular set that includes both pieces of equipment. This means you'll be able to make the white-armored DSR. I'm sure many of you remember using these guys in the Saga games! Like the other Customize Parts announced today, Koto will be designing them to be able to equip to other HMM Zoids, not just the wolves.


 

- 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.



 

- Sniptera Imperial Guard Promo Video!


Posted: 2021-10-24 19:46:56

 ZWR05 Sniptera Imperial Guard got a brief promo video over on twitter! This kit is already past its pre-order date, but will be releasing soon. For now, you can check out its images and story over on the official website.



 

- 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.
