This is my first post though I have been collecting zoids since when they were first issued in the 80's and reading this forum and zoidspoison before it shut for the longest time. This is what my collection looks like now. I started collecting what I liked, but now I limit myself to Empire zoids, be they Zenebas or Guylos. I further limit myself to only non-mammalian zoids, though there are some exceptions. OJR zoids occupy the bottom level, NJR the other levels. Blank space is reserved for the three Seismosauruses - the NJR, the ultimate and the blue, all unbuilt. KFM Ligers are one of the exceptions, as is the OJR Saber, OJR Bearfighter you can see in the first picture. Gairyuki and Shikkoku Gairyu Shin are also exceptions. This is only a fraction of my collection, all the others are either disassembled or mint in box in storage. Thank you.
Welcome! Really nice collection! I know I'd have a hard time putting myself to those limitations, kudos for the willpower! I've always loved the Geno Breaker Jet, been a long time since I've seen a pic of one of the Tomy ones and not a paint job of a more recent model.
(And if you don't mind, got any pointers on where to find display cases like yours? How long does it take for Zoids to get dusty in there, if ever?)
Light: Those are custom built-in mirror-backed display cabinets with magnetic casement glass doors and it is in my study. I had them built when I renovated my apartment five years ago. The zoids do not get dusty as I hardly open the display. The study windows are also fitted with black-out blinds and are hardly open. I mostly read in my study.
Skyknight: I was a guest reader at zp, did not register myself as an user there. I do miss the site though.
Here is another view of the display cabinet showing part of the geno-family. Genobreaker Jet was one of the culprits that egged me to order the display cabinet. That said, it is not my favorite zoid, that honour goes to Storm Fuhrer. I got the Yuji Kaida Berserk Fuhrer in the background from YJA when the user dhiba ayaz (did I spell it correctly?), posted it for sale. I understand this was the owner of z-matrices, a webpage I went to view zoids before it shut down. When I saw the posting on YJA, I had to own a piece of this collection. The other zoid I obtained from dhiba ayaz was the Night Patrol Rev Raptor.
My holy grail zoid would be the official white box red-chrome Genosaurer. I already have the gold and silver-chrome Genosaurers (MIB, in storage), and I only need the red one. However, I have only seen it on Leon's zoids site and have not seen it for sale. I would appreciate any information on the actual availability of this chrome zoid.
I have the Silver Chrome Geno, but I think a Black Chrome version exists too. As far as I know, Blade Liger has Gold, Silver, Black, and Blue chromes. Not sure if there are others. Geno might have a purple??? Maybe the red and purple Geno would be Leoshops...
I am VERY jeleous of your collection; you have a lot of my holy grails (Jet and Shin).
Your display has also made me realize why my humble collection looks so bad (besides not having a display case): I dont seperate my mammals and my non-mammals! Thanks foe the idea. How much did this custom case cost you (excluding lighting)?
When you are ready to unload to kits you can start a thread on the Trading Post. Most people edit the main page as their collection needs change and post updates and responses to members interested in working with you.
