Often copied by Multimac, Tomy Zoids are a massive range of robotic dinosaurs and other creatures. Huge in the late eighties and nineties, the range had a resurgence of interest and was rebranded in Japan a few years ago. The line included all manner of beetles, lizards, fish and even a snail. The later run of Zoids included a wonderful Sea Scorpion which was only made available in Japan.
My test run of the video post was accompanied by my son Will, who adds enthusiastic commentary to the film! Batteries werent at their best, but it does show the basic range of movement. More to follow soon on the Zoids/Spacex connection..
