Released by Kotobukiya as a 1/72 Highend Master Model is Irvine’s Lightning Saix from Zoids Guardian Force. Prior to this, Kotobukiya had already released a 1/72 HMM Lightning Saix. Most noticeable difference of this version is the mouth binder that grips between the fangs of the Lightning Saix. Always loved the design of the Lightning Saix, but then again, I’ve always been impressed with the way the creator of Zoids was able to “mechanize” animals.
From Kotobukiya comes the 1/72 Highend Master Model of the Dibison of Thoma from Zoids Guardian Force anime. When I first heard that Kotobukiya was releasing a Dibison version I was expecting to see the Dibison of Leena Toros from Zoids New Century. But either way I was happy that Kotobukiya released a Dibison for the Highend Master Model (HMM) Line. I always considered the HMM line to be the Epoch of the Zoids Hobby line because of the excellent design incorporated into the model kits released.
