Liger Zero

A cross between a Lion and a Tiger the Liger is one of the most classic Zoid designs. Liger's are usually found in Republic Armies, although some variants can be seen under Guylos control. Originally the Liger design was a Guylos creation, but the Republic was successful in stealing the first prototype and putting it into mass production before Guylos. (The Guylos Empire did eventually release their version of the Liger known as Liger Zero X later on in the war.) The Liger's signature attack is dubbed the "Strike Laser Claw" and is accomplished by diverting energy into the alloy claws charging the claw and allowing it to be used as a super weapon that can tear through even the thickest of all armor. 

Liger Zero, RZ-041 is a staple in every collection. As the main character in both Zoids New Century and the Fuzors series, Liger Zero is probably the most recognized Zoid out of the entire Anime. The model is nothing below excellent in both build and display qualities. The build is challenging, the sticker sheet is unique, and the finished Zoid makes a wicked display piece. There are three CAS (or changing Armor systems available) for this piece. As of this writing they are getting both more expensive and harder to find. The CAS systems are also marked as CP's (Custom Parts) and are each reviewed individually below:

CP-17 The Schneider (Cutter) Unit : Close range combat armor.

CP-20 The Jager (Hunter) Unit: High speed combat armor.

CP- 21 The Panzer (Tank)  Unit: Heavy assault, massive fire power armor.

Liger Zero has many variation including:

Liger Zero X, Liger Zero Falcon, Liger Zero Phoneix, Blue Souga, and Red Hirou. A Holotec version of this Liger was planned in 2003 by Hasbro, but never saw a release and the closest we came to capturing it was the holotec action figure. There are two versions of the Hasbro Box, both are nice but I do prefer the newer one, both boxes contain the same model.

The older Hasbro Box:
