1/72 Blade Liger HMM English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Kotobukiya Blade Liger from Zoids Anime English Translation Color Guide

Since I've already gone ahead in translating the color guide for the 1/72 Gun Sniper from Zoids, might as well translate the color guide for my favorite zoid design, the Blade Liger. Well this is one specific for the 1/72 Blade Liger made by Kotobukiya.


Thanks to Zoids, I actually found out that the Liger is an actual animal and not something that was made up. Its a cross between a Lion and a Tiger. With the Lion being the father and the Tiger being the mother.

The selling price of the Blade Liger is 5,040 yen, but I think you can get it cheaper at some online sellers. Also selling at Amazon.
