Zoids - The Return
Posted: Sun May 25, 2003 9:47 pm
I imagine that some of you will remember Zoids, and the Marvel comics that came out when they first arrived in the 80s. With the arrival of the new cartoon shows, the toy line has been relaunched over here and I've had an email from the marketing company with the details. Here are a couple of the new Zoids:This one I had first time round - now known as a Gordosaur, in my day this was the Great Gorgon and one of the earlier big, battery powered Zoids to come on the market.This one is a Zaber Fang - not sure what its original name was, but I believe it came out as part of the later range when there was more of a backstory developing.The Tomy homepage with details of the cartoons and toys is here:http://www.tomy-zoids.co.uk/The originals were quite satisfying to put together, and you can swap weapons etc which gives them a bit of longevity. More exciting than Lego, but also a little trickier to construct - it's well worth cutting the parts off the framework as cleanly as you can.
