- 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.

- 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.



 

- Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:54

 You can now read Chapter 1 of Zoids Official Fan Book 3 in the books section! This has been a highly anticipated chapter following Ray Gregg and his Shield Liger DCS-J, and was featured in a couple of the more recent HMM box arts. So give it a read if you want to see the origin of the HMM box art!



 

- Hasbro "Pincers" Review!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:41

 I've added a review for Pincers from Hasbro's "Built Them To Battle!" Zoids model kit series. I hope to review every Zoid released in this series, and while I don't have the JP version of this kit, I'll be covering the differences of any kits that I have the JP counterparts of. In the mean time this review introduces some of the standard changes between the US and JP editions, as well as box images and instructions.

 Since Zoids Wild is a new stage for Zoids model kits, both in the US and in Japan, I've separated the Hasbro release to its own model kits section. There are so many differences in these kits that I felt that they deserved its own space. This section includes a list of the Zoids, an overview of the differences, and will include all of the reviews we'll be making going forward! I'd really like to cover every kit in this line, if possible.



 

- Zoids Fuzors Update!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:28

 Episodes 11 ~ 14 have been added to to the Zoids Fuzors section! This includes screencaps, episode summaries, character and Zoid lists, notable facts, and videos showing the difference between the US / DVD release of the show the Japanese / blu-ray release. We're starting to get to the overarching story of this series!



 

- Zoids Fuzors Concept Art!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:16

 Along with four added episode details, Volumes 1 ~ 4 of the Japanese DVD concept art has been added to the Fuzors-specific concept art page! I'll probably make a dedicated page for these eventually. Huge thanks to Falcarius for providing the images! We see a lot of the early series characters, and even a couple things from the upcoming videos. As usual, new concepts are marked by a green border.

- Hobby Link Japan Affiliation!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:30:59

 The Iron Bible has joined the HLJ Affiliation program! I wanted to be up front about this since it does award us a small (3%) commission, but for a long time I've been struggling to find sites that reliably stocked the new Wild kits. Though they sell out fast in all stores, HLJ seems to be the most reliable in terms of getting them quickly, aside from maybe Amazon JP. In all prices we checked today, they were cheaper than the links we already had anyway.

 So how does this change things? It doesn't, really, it's just a nice bonus. We already link to HLJ in the pre-order table, and their currently endless storage is a huge benefit while shipping is struggling on a global level. This infinite storage is common with proxy services, but not so much with stores. The only difference will be a few more items linking to HLJ, but we'll always provide the best options for our visitors. If HLJ's prices are not competitive, we won't link those kits. Plain and simple. We also have other stores over on the names page as needed! In the mean time, I'm happy to affiliate with this store.
