Zoids was one of my first and favorite animes when I was a teen. I would build the old Hasbro model kits in middle school and junior high all the time! My parents even used them as incentive for earning good grades. Now I’m 27 and for years I would occasionally get his strong urge: I should build a Zoid...
Onto the internet I went and I found these awesome, beautifully complex kits by HMM that are similar in difficulty and pose-ability to Perfect grade Gundam kits. They are a blast to build! I taught myself to do detail painting and dry brushing as well to really make them pop.
I got good enough at it that people would ask for recommendations on forums. I ended up making a tutorial on getting started with the kits, which I posted to Youtube. That leads me to the best/worst, most hilarious creepy PM I’ve ever received in my life. I’ve preserved it for posterity here because it was such a gem. Not safe for work PMs below, but I’ve censored it a bit.
So that was amazing. He was a very confused robot. Just call me Good ol’ Perky Boob I guess.
Anywho, I have a lot more kits to share if there’s interest! And also my kingdom for new, actually good Zoids video game. Haven’t seen a decent one since Battle Legends on the Gamecube!
