ZOIDS!!! I’m clearing some zoids out.  As you can see, here are Dark Spiner and Battle Cougar.  I’ve put them up for sale on eBay but I still have more to get rid of.  (basically I’m clearing out my collection except for a few special Zoids I can’t part with.

I’m gonna write a small list of a few that I may list soon:

Shellkarn BZ-006
Deantler BZ-014
Sinker EZ-032
Missle Tortoise BZ-011
Brachiosaur EZ-012
Barigator RZ-003
Bear Fighter RZ-511
Dimetroptera BZ-021
Dimetra Ptera BZ-106

and mooooore….

Please send a note if you are interested.  All of them are pre-built, but come with box and stickers, etc.

More stickers from the little Zoids book. I was gonna use the Battle World ones instead but they have a blue border so they wouldn’t be usable on the Black Impact liger.

Brastle Tiger: Bombay Special.

Standard Brastle Tiger Kit given some detail; I was originally going to do filigree but then I decided on a more paisley patterning on the bristle mechanism.

I think Brastle Tiger as a kit is under-rated. Its a solid chunky kitty, with a ton of cool features. Its a very plain kit, so I detailed a lot of the panels with a mix of enamels and metallic gundam markers [metallic red in particular]. Gold leaf’d the thermal cannon covers and caps. I love its foot locks too!

I tried some graphite powder on the claws and teeth but it didn’t quite work as expected. Still, very happy with the kit.

Old Zoids photos #32: Hayate Liger and mini Hayate Liger

My Hayate is STILL in bits and partially painted. I’m not that happy with the paint and should really just strip it all (it’s acrylic, so not too hard), prime it outside once the weather warms up more, and start over. I will make it pink and purple glittery, dammit. For the glory of the Princess Zoids. (I even have a set of silver waterslides of its markings/stickers waiting for it thanks to Darwock on ZP, and if I don’t use them, I will be forever guilty!)

Frustratingly, pretty much all of Hayate is soft, irritating to paint plastic, with the silver being super soft safety plastic even though the blades already had goofy safety tips. Recommendations for primer that can actually hang onto that stuff, anyone? I’ll even take spray enamel or lacquer, I’ll just have to get a mask and use it outside. White primer preferred, given it’ll (someday…) be getting shiny colors over it.

Mini Hayate, who is not in bits, was from a line of a few Genesis Zoids in candy toy type boxes. I honestly can’t remember much beyond that, but I think there was a Soul Tiger, a Megaraptor…maybe Deadly Kong? It’s slightly posable and slightly squishy.

Zoids  Storm Sworder MEV.

AKA the Chrome Overlord. MEV stands for Mirror Edge Version.

I managed to score a cheap Tomy original Sworder, one of my old dream zoids from eons ago, on Y!J and was going to detail it up nicely and keep it mostly vanilla. That idea… kind of didn’t happen. Instead after being very successful at hand-chroming some guns on the HMM Mirage Wolf I decided that I should try my hand at chroming a whole zoid. 

Pretty much just because I damn well could. 

Because it’s not vacuum chroming or airbrushed it’s not as silky smooth everywhere like it could be, but given it was all hand brushed I think I did relatively well for an experiment — not to mention painting and chroming this kit has saved the life of the plastic; it was brittle and smelt lightly of cigarette smoke, so I had to air it out before doing anything, and it was kind of scary cutting the sprues for this because while the parts were very good after being treated, that couldn’t be said for the armature of the sprues which basically tried their very best at exploding and trying to stab me in the eye repeatedly. 

(Bless glasses.)

A very fun little pet project, and a proud member of my growing Zoidian airforce. When some FSV models finally start showing up on Y!J, or if I get a friend to pick one up if they’re going via Akihabara anytime soon since Koto-shop has them on hand, I’ll pick one of those up and I’ll have a trio of kick-ass pterodactyls.

Old Zoids photos #29: Speaking of leopardprint repaints, a Gravity Saix by my SO (who has an art Tumblr over here; if you’re into art dolls of critters/creatures/monsters, have a look). Black leopardprint on silver with blue details.

The use of leopardprint on a cheetah is intentional/for personal custom type reasons, so please no “you’re doing it wrong” ;p.

If I remember right, this was spray Testor’s enamels (with primer on at least the orange bits) and black and silver enamel paint markers. The blunt safety tip on the sword-missile does not lend itself to good edge colors—it looks warped, but I swear it’s not, it was masked neatly and everything.

I wish Gravity Saix were still super-common or that I hadn’t lost my spare one to a basement flood. I want to repaint at least one of them someday, because they’re simple constructionwise but take detail so readily. I think they’re rather underrated as both a Zoid and as a kit—they’re not amazing, but they’re no worse mechanically than the simpler walking windups, and the ripcord thing is kind of entertaining. It’s best on Gravity Wolf, though, if you have space enough for it to really roll.
