International fans should recognize the franchise as the first three anime productions aired on Cartoon Network. The final series anime based on the Zoids franchise titled, “Zoids: Genesis,” did not have an international release. “Zoids: Genenis,” aired in Japan in 2005-2006 so it has been over 12 years since the last anime series based on the franchise has been produced.
The main “Liger” in the series will be known as the “Wild Liger,” which will be apart of the first wave of model kit releases for the series. One of the other Zoids models include the “Gill Laputa,” which is apart of the Dinonics species. Both models are set to release in June 2018 and priced at 3,000 Yen. Other currently unnamed Zoids species that will also be produced are based on the Proganoceris, Sarcosus, Beetles, Scorpion species, Stag beetles, and Brachiosaurus species. The main models are stated to use a motor similar to previous Zoids models, however the inner skeletons will apparently be more intricate than previous incarnations. Additional information includes the new Zoids will not come on runners and are made to be assembled right out of the packaging.
Currently no other details about the project has been confirmed at this time, so please stay tuned for updates.
