Zoids Wild - Summer 2018

Hi All,

Long time no see!

For those who didn't see it, TOMY put up an announcement ~2 weeks ago with just the letter "Z" and a countdown. There were a few things circling, and one image of a Zoid. People got hyped.

Today they released it, and it was legit: A new Zoids series!!

I need more.... oh man, I hate teasers that tell us nothing!!!

Okay, super small scale Zoids, lacking full cockpits, so, Blitz Haken and Diloforce sized? Hmmm...

I'm looking forward to it! 

A bit concerned about the health and well being of the pilots, though.

Teasers don't tell us much at all, you're right. 

Dalen, tell me about it... I would be concerned of getting my head blown off or decapitated by a Zoid's blade lol. 

I read somewhere that this anime will be aimed at 10-12 year old boys. Also it might be similar to how Genesis was, in terms of excavating zoids from the ground. So far It doesn't look like what I personally would want in a zoids series but it's a heart beat and I'll support it 100%. 

Also the models that will be released looks interesting and I'm definitely going to buy them when they're released. xD

Haha, the vast majority of my Zoids on this site are Diloforce, so I'm used to the concept of small-scale Zoids with open air cockpits.

Here's a Reddit thread I made with a summary of the announcements:

It sounds like TOMY is going all-in with this release. I'm just happy they are doing anything new with Zoids, even if it's a bit different from what we've all seen in the past.

Some preview images of the new Zoids Wild manga starting next month in CoroCoro:






Also, as provided by ZPH, a comprehensive list of the Wild launch kits:


I'm really, really hoping this new series pays off for Tomy, especially since they plan on launching it in international markets as well.  Tons of interesting new things they're branching into, and I'm really coming around to the idea of a full reboot for some new blood/ideas to the franchise.  (It'll also be nice that Koto is continuing the HMM line so we still have the old designs kicking around)

I know, right?

The full kit is roughly $112, and the armor kit without the Zoid is about $54. Seeing as I already have the HMM regular version and the Sturm Tyrann in the non-HMM, I might get just the armor kit... and NOT completely rebuild the whole thing!
