    doing some research today, I found out Zoids is owned by Takara-Tomy. So what would you guys think if they every did a Zoids-Transformers Crossover, even as a one off.

    The closest thing we'll probably get to a Zoid-former is the newest design for Lio Convoy, who apparently turns into Liger Zero.

    I didn't exactly mean transforming Zoids more like a cross universe. Think Transformers/GI Joe

    As a extremely huge Zoids fanboy, I can see the good and the bad in this.
    One thing is it would be freakin awesome! Or, it blow so bad.
    The only thing I'm hopin would happen with Zoids is that we can have a new anime with new model kits! :thumb

    I've been using Zoids as the defacto Mecha-Fauna of my TF Universe for years now. Once Habsro got the US distribution rights, that was enough for me to consider it "official enough" the Takara-Tomy merger just sealed the deal.

    They're good fun, diaclone-scale, and aesthetically similar. We need SOMETHING to represent Turbo-foxes and such in toy form!

    Will Has/Tak/Tom ever do something official? I doubt it! Zoids ficition (such as it is) isn't very TF-fiction-friendly. Plus the US market doesn't seem willing to ever embrace the brand for more than 6 months :/

    I was thinking this is a terrible idea, but then I thought about the Dinobots. That could be fucking cool.

    Possible plot idea for it, there is an accident with a space bridge that sends a group of Autobots catapulting into another galaxy, in which they land on a planet inhabitited by humans, but also giant mechanical animals (the zoids, but they wouldn't know what they are). I think Chaotic Century would be a better continuity, or a brand new one. but anyways, maybe as a plot twist at the start, autobots are tricked into working for the bad guys, or maybe even used as zoids (Think "only human").

    I don't know. The first thing to come to mind are the G1 Predacons.

    I know there's a bull Zoid out there somewhere. That in Tantrum's colors would rock. :rock

    I think this would be absolutely sublime. For best results, the crossover should be a Beast Wars/Zoids crossover.

    Personally, just as a thing to make me laugh, I wanna see movie Prime, riding a blade liger, both with their swords out, with Prime yelling, "GIMME YOUR FACE!!!!!"

    Being one that adores Zoids I would not be adverse to this. I've always liked the idea of Cybertronians crash landing on Zi as opposed to earth. 83

    As far as toys go I think it would be awesome, but with the fiction, I'm not sure how it would work. I'd like to see it played out, yes, but the utmost care would have to be taken, IMO. The cast of characters interacting with each other, the plot setting, which series would be in the forefront -- there are so many factors that have to be taken into consideration.

    What's sad is it could really be either a hit or a miss depending on how it's handled. ...Perhaps if it started anew with just the better basis of both remaining? ie Planet Zi & Cybertron's War and their differing political and monarchical standings, Sentient Transforming robots / Sentient Herculean Mechanical Beasts

    Meanwhile, a Berserk Fury for ones thoughts [Link]
