Anime, Manga, Toys oh my, Zoids are Back after 12 Years!!!
After 12 years of hiatus, the wildly popular toy Zoids which had an anime series that ran from 2005 to 2006 is coming back in a big way. So what’s coming you might be asking? Well two things. First is a new anime titled Zoids Wild. The second thing makes sense as the coincide with one another and that is a new line of Zoid Toys.
Here is an excerpt from a recent article in the Japan Times explaining more about the company’s intentions ad focus:
The firm said it plans to market the plastic models through the classic Japanese media-mix formula of anime, manga and video games starting in Japan in April and then moving on to the rest of the world.
The 35-year-old toy series allows users to assemble plastic parts to create battery-powered robotic dinosaurs, animals and insects.
“Zoids are animal and dinosaur robots. It sounds simple, but we think this is an important factor that captures the hearts of boys around the world,” Yutaka Tajima, head of a Tomy division tasked with making toys aimed at the boy demographic, said during a news conference in Tokyo.
We are excited about the Nostalgic news coming from the company and the fact we are getting a more modern story with Zoids. Here is also a FIRST LOOK at the trailer:
