NEW Zoids Project Teased

How many of you remember the anime series Zoids? Better yet, how many of you had the awesome motorized model kits from the series? I had several as a kid and the first time I had ever seen them was from a friend of mine who’s dad was stationed in Japan. They brought back some of the amazing model kits to the US and I was immediately hooked. Zoids were basically giant battle mechs based off of animals like lions, tigers, and dinosaurs. Well it looks like a whole new generation will get to enjoy these awesome mechs because they are making a come back.

The company behind the somewhat forgotten anime series and toy line (Takara Tommy) has launched a new website that teases the return of Zoids. There isn’t much on the website yet except for a single awesome background image of what looks like Liger Zero and the words Zoids Coming Soon. I don’t know about you guys but I am really excited about this. I loved the model kits and know that my kids would love them too. There is no word on how Zoids is returning whether it’s an anime series, movie, toy line or all of the above.
