So, Hasbro is bringing Zoids back worldwide. The first Zoids wave called Zoids:Build them to life will release in fall 2019 in Europe and in 2020 in America. Do you guys love Zoids? I love the original Hasbro releases.

Yes,but called Zoids:Build them to life. If the series is successful then a live action film isn't out of question.

Not even close. The next series will be this July 27. And we'll expect more new characters outside of the returning ones from Team Freedom (yes, even Drake, who joins for good in the finale).

It wasn't their choice, the station that aired it and helped sponsor it reclaimed several time slots (Beyblade Bursts a few monghs ago, Shinkalion recently) for sports programs in the run up to the olympics

Finally. I was starting to consider just importing some wild kits because I was impatient. I'm building giga gojulas now and having a blast.
Anyone recommend a good Wild kit to pick up when they release?

Beyblade Burst is on another net. It got demoted to ONA status because Takara Tomy wanted to push Bakugan. Beyblade Burst is in its fourth year, which usually means death soon.

The new turtle zoid can have the pilot riding inside the zoid. You only see the pilot when the canon is flipped out.

I wanted a Gordos too at some point then I realized something. It would likely be hard to recreate and require more artistic liberties then other. Maybe better it stays the way it is.

The thing is entirely pistons and support struts with a big torso. It's hard to tell from just the model at first glance but closer inspection reveals most of the tail is just negative space that would be removed. It's a structural nightmare for the HMM design team is my bet.

And the show does not help either. I just feel like that for how much an HMM gordos would cost due to its size, I would just be dissappointed in final result.

If you're feeling impatient, I bought one of the KOs to compare to my real one and it was surprisingly similar quality-wise. I would say it's a decent choice.

Pretty sure we all knew what he meant, same thing really in the long run for how it affects the model kit.

>>7648147

KOs and outright bootlegs of model kits are typically a better bet for quality then action figures. Might have to do with the fact the plastic material is easier to deal with, you got entire sprues being copied versus trying to copy an assembled figure, and perhaps the most important of all is as a model kit we will tolerate and fix the issues that do crop up. Say there is issues with the pegs, we just sand that stuff down, no biggie. Flash lines? Exacto knife it away.

There will be some bigger issues now and then, but again they are fixable. The plastic tends to be a bit more brittle then usual, but we model builders are cutting the parts off the sprues so we have a better grasp of what tolerances the plastic material has and can adjust our handling more instinctively.

In other words, don't be afraid by cheaper chinese versions of kits. Unless you want a kit with special stuff like say HMM kits with special characters. You don't get those dudes, only the generic pilots on sprues. So no Zeek, Van, Fiona for your blade liger Van ver.

>>7648182
Yeap, and same for the HMM, they did pretty much all of the Ligers and the Saber Tigers. Sadly havent found any knock off saurers. The D-style comes in different colors then normal so even if you got all the normal legit ones, you might want the KOs for even more colors.

I found there are two made by STK(no idea) and two made by Dragon Momoka which I know is a fairly respected name in the Gunpla community as they even made completely unique gundam kits. Last I heard, they are dead

Zoids is similar to beyblades in that its brought back out and remains popular for a time before fading back into nothing then starting over again, just with a longer reset period

Don't know much about zoids. But there was a blue zoid for like 300 bucks that had a little white Dino I really wanted. Anyone know of the name of that little guy ? How to get one
>>
>>7651204
Blue Zoid was probably the Shield Liger, the little dino guy was Zeke(Sieg in the JP version), which was a little robot dude who could fuse with big Zoids to power them up.

I'm not sure how much merch there is of him.

little white dino? blue zoid?

you must be referring to the HMM Blade Liger AB Bang version, or the Shield Liger Bang version. Both come with the Organoid Zeek and older /younger(respectively) sersions of Bang and Fiona.

Other Zoids that came with Organoids included Geno Saurer and Geno Breaker Raven Versions which had a black Organoid, and Geno Saurur Psycho version which came with TWO organoids, a blue and red one.

There is also the limited Hiltz edition of the already expensive Death STinger that came with the red organoid from the Psycho Saurur but it was a limited run of an already pricey(compared to other HMMs) kit.


As for prices? the only way currently to get the liger cheap is the chinese knock off version, but there in lies a problem. You want that little white dino, sadly the chinese knock offs for as decent as they are, do NOT come with any special characters including the Organoids.

We might be seeing some of those special versions of the kit get a rerelease within a year or two but who knows with Kotobukiya. So for now, just a waiting game to see if they get new retail releases and go for the more proper prices.

and here are the Geno Saurer variants with their organoids. If you are primarily interested in the 'little dino' of the liger, then these might interest you since the main Zoid itself is a dinosaur.

>>7651339
That's it! I'm trying to get that little guy. If anyone wants to get rid of one please let me know :)

Zeke had various merch made of him, you can see more here towards bottom of page. https://zoids.fandom.com/wiki/Zeke
This could help you potentially track down similar figures of him.

So far the only other best potential bet for you is the unpainted figure of him that came with the Gustav. Same scale, so should be largely the same size as the HMM figure, but made of model kit plastic, unpainted, and not nearly as detailed, but still a decent substitute. There was a light gray version that came with the original style kits of the various Ligers but those might be harder to find since mostly only specific kits had the Zeke.

There is currently a Gustav selling used on ebay for $35 plus shipping. The pictures show it still has Zeke.

>>7651339
So the one I pictured.. does it come painted and does it have any articulation? Or do they come from model kits.?
>>
>>7657865
Jesus is this the set ?
>>
>>7633889
Zoids wild is everything I don't want out of Zoids.
>>
>>7657865
the ones you want are prepainted, I simply gave you an ALTERNATIVE to those. Didn't you even read the wiki page I posted? it describes every type of figure they ever made of that specific character, full size, miniatures, gashapon, etc.

ALL extraneous special character figures from the HMM zoids line are prepainted soft plastic. To further drive the point home >>7651339 Dalong.net (you can tell from the right corner) never paints anything he reviews, what you see in that picture is straight out of the box.


But if you are willing to deal without the nicer version of him and unpainted (painting a monotone vehicle/robot is piss easy) then you could go with the MUCH cheaper alternative. Otherwise don't count on anyone giving you just Zeke if they have the kit.
