Bandai/Namco you have a publishing contract with FromSoftware, creators of Armored Core, the leading edge mech combat game on the market for 2 decades running, and yet you refuse to purchase the rights to Zoids from Tomy and have From make a Zoids game like any reasonable company would do how dare you
I recently got a couple of recolors as well. There are many nice ones for the Saber, and aesthetically, I think the others are probably more pleasing. However, FT has been an unexplained favorite of mine for a long time. I think because of Saga 1, and later seeing the cool card. I even plan to make a custom model of it once I find an Assault Unit at a decent price. So, I couldn’t not get it as my primary Saber Tiger recolor.
I’ve been playing some zoids field of rebellion, So Screenies!
My primary zoid is a Red shield Liger, Though everyone starts off with a white command wolf as the standard. You’re playing with real people of course, Many of whom can be found Twitter which is good I’ve had to be in teams/ fight against several people I know from there. It is rather repetitive but knowing people and a love of zoids is generally what’s keeping my interest anyway. And wanting to obtain new weapons.

I knew I’d be customising my MP Saber Tiger the moment I got it, but I was stumped for ideas until I saw a Saber Tiger skin available on the new (JPN only) mobile game, Zoids: Rebellion. I loved the funky white eyeliner and the super cherry red/black combo. I mixed it up with some more gunmetal underbody.
I rather like how thoughtful the design of this motorised kit is. I like you CAN display or use the motor function without the armour [video here] and I love the twist cap mechanism vs the old rubber cap of the older style TOMY motorised kits.
The underbody is painted in various shades of graphite and magnesium powder paint and buffed to a shine to give a more metallic look than the original cast plastic.
The red I used was hand mixed and glazed; using a mix of Mr Colour paints. I love how utterly vibrant it is in person but it is suffering™ to photograph without it looking streaky. It’s super glossy and reflects light so much it caused lens flares when shooting photos outside. Inside it didn’t reflect enough ambient light and I wasn’t even going to attempt using a flash.
Also attempted to use waterslide decals to make the clear red pieces have a bit more pop; I think they work well and tie into the white facial stripe. A little detail I loved was the tiger striping cast into the shoulder pieces.
As much as enjoyed building this kit, unless they come out with a must-have kit, I’ll pass on collecting them. I personally prefer the dynamism of HMM kits/ZA line.
I’ll upload a video of the armored walk cycle/light function to my modelling blog, @technofortomcats shortly!
I watched through all the zoids videos just mesmerized. If you bother to watch carefully you will even notice little things like the Gauges in the cockpit actually function! These videos deserve so much more views than what they currently have oh my god.
Due to a series of events involving neighbors and landlords, I cannot stay here anymore. This isn’t by choice, so I have to make due with what I have. I have to be out relatively soon, so I am choosing to make my sales now.
As I’m moving within the next few months, I’m parting ways with several items to help lessen the load. These are all to help with costs and it’s better than simply throwing them away:
The current home was bought and the new owners are requesting us to be out by the 6th, so whatever is left needs to be put out as soon as possible.
Even if you cannot buy anything, a reblog helps – or any sort of advertising, really.
The listings have ended for the Black Lotus, Tales of Xillia 2 CE, and Blade Liger, so people can make direct offers on them and transactions can be made via Paypal.
