The Zoids Wild Biographies section has been updated with a page for the Hunter Wolf Victor Spiegel Special! This includes an automatic translation of the Wolf's story, and official product photos posted by the company.
February saw pre-orders open for the Xenorex Storm XA, the final installment thus far in the Zoids Wild Biographies line. It also included the end of the Zoids Wild Senki storyline, which after the last episode, was transitioned into a web-story format and published on TakaraTomy's website. The kit was first teased in January, with a clear nod towards the Storm Sworder from Tomy's old Zoids line. Afterwards, the kit was posted to the TakaraTomy Mall for 4,400 yen (tax included), with a release date of July 2022. The story was published on its site page.
Some tweets also showed off various combinations of the Storm parts with other Zoids. one showed a combo between the Storm XA, Scissors XA, and Buster XA. The wings can also evidently be used on the Burning Liger.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Zoids Official started teasing their next new Zoid! It was apparent from the first picture that this would be Lieutenant Colonel Clive Diaz's personal Wild Liger, as seen in the Zoids Wild Zero anime. This kit has been the first kit announced for the upcoming line, Zoids Wild Biographies! This has really interesting implications. A ton of people have made customs of this specific Liger. The question is, how many kits will we see from this line? Will they all be based on the anime customs? There are so many amazing possibilities. I'll also be looking forward to seeing how it looks out of the box, and how many painted details are included. For now, you can check out the official product photos on the TakaraTomy Mall and a brief video on Twitter that shows off the movements.
- Diaz's Wild Liger Clips
With the exciting announcement of this kit I decided to put together a series of clips showing off some of its features in the show. This video contains spoilers. You have been warned!
