Tilly's Zoids

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Liger Red Hiou

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

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 […]

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, […]

Claw

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

Red Horn The Terrible

It seems I chose my time well. The battlefield below is strewn with the bodies of Blue warriors. No-one remains to stand in my path. No-one but Mammoth! Let the traitor beware! Let him live in fear! For I am Redhorn the Terrible! I am remade, renewed! And my enemies shall be as dust beneath my feet.

Krark

The Prince of Darkness. No, not that one. The other one. ...the other OTHER one.

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".
