    Now iv been on a nonstop search for Zoids!(Modle Kits)
    iv been to every hobby shop i can drive/bus too but all they have is Gundams which i now own a good amount of lol
    But I need too get 3 types of Zoids Modle Kits.
    1)Zabat
    2)Command Wolf
    3)Barigator/Leogator
    now can any1 guess who there going to be?
    Hopefully they'll be Deluxe sized zoids (i am not knowing of the Scale size lol)
    But back to the point, Is there a side where i can buy them? (Canadian Site hopefully?)

    Thanks

    Not sure where you could find them, but if these become Headmasters, I hope you do!

    Sad that your place don't have much Zoids, we here in the Philippines had tons and tons of Zoids and its flooding the local malls , but too bad for TFs that is what hurts us here because it takes months before we get to grab the new waves of TF releases. And gundams, SOCs are also abundant here.

    I was gonna build my Predaking from Zoids but refuse to pay out the but for them and they are almost impossible to find. I've been fishing in BST forums for several months, and rarely get responses.

    These would make nice headmasters for sure.

    ebay has many, but they are priced high. I was hoping for the bison, but can't find it under $70, plus $20 shipping (most come from asia) Good luck with ebay.

    Well, the North American Zoids line is dead, so there are a lot fewer of them around for sure... weren't the leftovers all clearanced at Walmarts 2-3 years ago?

    I don't think there's an ongoing Japanese Zoids line either, though they still seem to be available in Asia. I'd say your best bet would be Ebay. Also I know there are some online retailers that still have some Zoids in stock.

    Barigator isn't so small... though he's leaner than the other two. I'd still call him Deluxe material.There's also a larger gator Zoid out there from the Blox line called Leogator (actually convertible between lion and alligator modes. That one might also suit your needs.

    Zabat is not very large in the body, though he has an impressive wingspan (though they're just empty "frames")

    Command Wolf has a lot of potential. A bit larger than Cybertron Snarl in wolf mode, if that gives you an idea of scale. There's also a couple of other wolf Zoids, though the only one in the deluxe size range is the Gravity Wolf (which is bigger than the Command Wolf).

    Damn, I miss Zoids. I hope they get a revival soon...

    I hope you find the zoids man, they're a good source, with the three they'd share a zoidish aesthetic which would scream sub-group as they are, it'd be awesome

    the wolf is extra sweet!

    any thoughts on what to do with the heads themselves?

    I hope you find them, they'll work well together

    yup, Chlokai's solution is very tidy and doesn't take away from the robot mode, it's a nice one, not sure where to find them myself, but I may look into it.
