HMM Liger Zero English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 RZ-041 Liger Zero HMM Color Guide & Manual

Definitely my most favorite variant of the Liger from Zoids: the Liger Zero. This came out in Zoids New Century Zero and was flown by series protagonist, Bit Cloud. I guess the main reason why I like this variant of the Liger is because of the color scheme (not blue!) and the opaque white canopy instead of the customary clear orange.

Granted that I think that Bit Cloud was a dweeb in the anime, it still doesn't lessen the fact that I think that the Liger Zero is the meanest looking Liger there is. And Thanks to the anime Zoids, I actually found out that a Liger is a cross between a male lion and a female tiger and not something that the producers made up *snicker*.

The 1/72 RZ-041 Liger Zero (Highend Master Model) HMM from Kotobukiya is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 4210 yen at Amiami, 4640 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 4640 yen at Hobby Search.
