Kotobukiya Zoids ~ Liger Zero Jager
This was my first Koto kit, and having collected over 60 Tomy/Hasbro models in the last 13 years; I gotta say this was a huge challenge in comparison. There’s LOTS of small parts and if you have big hands, good luck building these. You practically have to create a balancing act for some of those leg pieces. I actually have blisters on my thumbs from working on this bad boy.
Alot the parts I glued to prevent any falling off and being victimized by the vacuum cleaner. These kits are much more posable and detailed than Tomy models, but in exchange you sacrifice durability. If you dropped this guy, good luck putting parts back where they belong without a hassle.
All in all it’s a cool piece and I’m glad I built a Kotobukiya Zoid. However, I think I still prefer the Tomy models more because of their ability to withstand some abuse (and age).
