Sabre

While Claw is more classy (as far as the bright-colored Zoids2 schemes go), Sabre is probably best described as though the early 90s exploded on a cat. Every frame is a different color, and those colors are chrome lavender (making up the body, and shown as pale blue on the box), black (the legs), slightly […]

Valga

The Valga is a state of the art mecha, which was developed and deployed as the main force of the Guylos Empire's army after the Grand Catastrophe. Made using the analyzed super-technology from the wreckage of the recovered King Gojulas, it's said to be a mecha of many mysteries. Its special move, "Gravity Attack", is […]

Blade Liger BI

Blade Liger is one of those Zoids I find myself collecting variants of for reasons I can't quite explain. It's not an absolute favorite, but there's something appealing about its sleek lines and white-trimmed fins that keeps me coming back. Add in a liking of Fuzors and gunmetal, and it's no surprise I'd be after […]

Leogator (Hasbro Fuzors variant and NJR)

Leogator was one of three designs that were both Blox and motorized. This was a strange concept, considering the entire point of Blox was "static but posable Zoids you can take apart and put back together weird ways", and much of the era's regular motorized designs already integrated Blox to high degrees (see Seismosaurus, Liger […]

Blue Command Wolf (and CP-04 Attack Unit)

With added shiny pilot! Command Wolf is one of the ubiquitous windups of the NJR, appearing everywhere in various limited and regular releases. They're often customized, they show up in lots of teams, and not a single main anime pilot has kept his alive for the whole series other than Helmut. In other words, there's […]

Brave Jaguar (with Metal Hopper)

Apologies for the randomly fluctuating quality/color of the building pics. I was playing with camera settings without paying attention and paid the price...) Neo Blox have received a mixed reception in the fandom, just as much (or more) than their original Bloxy brethren. I was on the side of the "bleh" responses, and I still […]

Dekalt Dragon (Genesis)

aka Decalt, Decalto, Descarteswhatsitfredpotato...I'll just go with Dekalt. I was never quite sold on Death Raser and Parablade, alternating between liking them and wanting other stuff more. The other stuff always won. Dekalt's moment came when the Genesis line produced one in pearl white, metal flake bronze, Prussian blue, gold and clear/metallic blue, Gildy-style. Gimme, […]

Gildragon

Almost every model fan knows Gilvader, if only by name. It's near-impossible not to if you hang out in the community or cruise the net, even for a little while. A monster-sized Grade-Up from hell, it snacked on Saly F2 and took on Mad Thunder, the ultimate tank of the time...and won. Its undoing as […]

Bio Megaraptor Glearmd

Released midway through the Genesis line, Nudist Raptor here was announced along with a "Commander" Bio Raptor, which many thought would be the black and red one from the first Genesis episode. Disappointingly, there was little difference in color (the two were even hard to tell apart in some lights), but Glearmd delivered on its […]

Liger Red Hiou

It's a Liger Zero. It's clear pink. Do want.

HMM Command Wolf LC

My first HMM, and...not the best. Empirewolf, plus chrome bits!

Clear Molga

As I covered with Clear Horn: no, it's not Crystal. For the fluff-curious, the Saber Tiger and further Holotech critters claim their funky plastic is a form of beam reflecty armor that sometimes grants doom stealth...whether this would apply to the Clear Molga via Retcon Magic or not is anyone's guess. Now that that's out […]

Gojulas HT

Fans of the original three Clear Zoids have often wished for a matching Republic set, and while I doubt we'll see another similar promotion (the last Z-point drawing involved a Murasame in colored clear plastic and the much-sought-after Genesis Redler colored to match Gildy and Dekalt), we will at least see a rival for the […]

Jäger Unit (original and chrome)

My favorite of the Liger Zero armors...in regular, and in chrome. SHINY TEAL.

Zaber Fang

It's really bright yellow, and someday I'll write it a longer review!

Siegdober (Zeekdober)

This mecha belongs to the directly-controlled force of the Dark Continent Army. It packs two photo particle guns showing terrific power, and in melee it slices up enemies with the Hell Blazers on its back. With its excellent mobility, it's at its strongest in high-speed shock warfare. Furthermore, its body has stealth abilities, letting it […]

Gorhecks (NJR / Fuzors)

The ultimate adorable stegosaurus.

Helcat

While the Helcat was developed early on in the era of the central continent war, it runs at high speed on any kind of treacherous road with its general-purpose build, and is a high-performance Zoid offering a lot of military gain. Thanks to the silencing feature built into its legs and because it's equipped with […]

Diloforce

Diloforce is one of the oft-neglected non-motorized critters from the mid-latter part of the new line. While Demantis and Maccurtis would show in /Zero, most of them were shoved into the background of fans' minds as mediocre designs that didn't do much in continuity. They even lost their place as controversial thanks to Blox, the […]

Gun Sniper (and CP-13 Wild Weasel Unit)

"This velociraptor-type Zoid was born from the partially-analyzed data of the "Organoid System", and got quick wits and vitality far beyond the ordinary. It's an all-rounder sort of design, easily handling everything from logistical support to assault." - Gun Sniper's box, on Gun Sniper "This toy takes the dinosaur concept and gratuitously adds a sniper […]

Blade Liger (Hasbro Red)

Hasbro's slightly odd but mostly worthy release of the Leonblade...which never, in any release, is even remotely the same red as Leon's Blade Liger in the anime.

Blade Liger (NJR blue)

The Liger of many tiny variations, the hero of an entire animated series...it's blue. It's got blades. It's the blue Blade Liger.

Berserk Fury

Renowned as one of the most complex models in the NJR, BF comes in an accordingly large box. Beyond differences in batch (the lavender varies, the eggbeaters may be less or more squishy, and some BFs seem more prone to falling on their arses regardless of country of origin) and a slightly modified sticker sheet, […]

Stego

The good thing about collecting Zoids2 is not a lot of people like them. The bad thing about collecting Zoids2 is not many people talk about them, so here's a review of one of the best.

Claw

Neon green and gold: it's not a tacky Packers cat, it's Claw!
