Tilly's Zoids

Skip to content

Original JP Release

aka what many fans call the OJR. These Zoids range in date from 1983 to 1990, and were marketed mostly with the battle story, as the anime wouldn’t exist until 1999.

Being 80s toys, they come complete with nostalgia, better plastic, and nasty prices on eBay. The OJR is the way to go if you want Zoids at their finest in molding quality and don’t care about the price…unless you’d prefer a more European take on their story and colors.

Reddra

This supersonic-speed battle machine beast is the Imperial Army's latest weapon. It's capable of vertical takeoff, and boasts high maneuverability. With its extraordinarily strong wings and body, awesome tactics like slicing an enemy clean in half using its Cutter Wing while passing them in an air battle are its specialty. Its nose can bend downwards […]

Raynos

Original blue flavor.

Kingliger

A cat with laser blades. The first cat, actually. Kingliger did it with style.

Gunbluster

22 chrome guns on an ankylosaurus-pancake. Better than it sounds, much better.

Gul Tiger

It's orange, it's yellow, it's got charged particles in a can(non) and office-chair springs for legs!

Gordos (OJR and NAR)

Gordos, aka Gordosaur and Great Gorgon, is in my opinion one of the most underrated Zoids. Don't miss its 80s stegosaur action.

Dimetrodon

Most of a Dimetrodon, anyway. Another underloved design, you may know it better as Spinefin, or "is that where Dark Spiner got its waving fin idea from?". (P.S.: It's a synapsid, not a dinosaur.)

Battle Cougar (Mostly OJR restored version)

I pulled most of an OJR Battle Cougar out of a lot of beaten up older Zoids. It's missing parts I had to borrow from a Hasbro release, but it's...mostly there.

Deadborder

One of the first three Dark Zoids, the Deadborder is a classic design in black, charcoal, and glowing neon green. Mine's the original OJR deal...at least for some value of "OJR".
