HMM Shield Liger English Manual & Color Guide

Kotobukiya 1/72 HMM Zoids Shield Liger English Color Guide & Manual

The iconic blue Shield Liger from the Zoids anime series. Where all through out the franchise it appears sometimes as a protagonist and sometimes as only a supporting cast member. This was made into a beautiful 1/72 model kit by Kotobukiya in the Highend Master Model (HMM) line. This kit isn't new though as it came out a few years back.

The only Zoids anime I ever watched was New Century Zero, it was light and comedic and probably the reason too why I enjoyed it. I tried watching Chaotic Century but got lost after a few episodes so I didn't bother watching it anymore. I think I got overwhelmed by the amount of episodes and how dragging and slow the story seemed to be. Looking back now, I think that maybe I should have been more patient with the anime series and watched at least half of it before judging the series.

Construction Manual and Color Guide for the 1/72 HMM RPZ-03 Shield Liger by Kotobukiya was translated to Engllish from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Zoid's Plamodel Review site. For the meaning of the symbols found in the manual, kindly refer to this older post.

The 1/72 HMM Shield Liger is selling $88.22 at Amazon.

Didn't bother to post the entire manual, only the pages with Japanese characters in them that could be translated.
