A Zoid and Stuff

In: 2nd Worldwide Release > Hasbro Variants

511 Bear Fighter

Bear Fighter was previously a “white box” limited (the crappier the box, the rarer the prize), until this surprise Hasbro release. They assigned an arbitrary number, so as not to interfere with future NJR kits’ numbers. Apart from the orange canopy, the colors are identical to the (hella rare) OJR version. After noticing all the detail on the parts, I decided to panel-line and detail this one into next week. Gold marker + humidity = PAIN.

Other fun facts! Bear Fighter has two modes, and can walk in both: lumbering, four legged mode, and upright, amorous camper-mauling mode! Also, thanks to Hasbro’s font choice, this guy often shows up in auctions listed as “Gear Fighter”.

I wanted to get more pics, but the camera wasn’t cooperating :(

    Awesome panel lining, truly brings out the details on this somewhat oddity. I really enjoy “Gear Fighter”, and Bambu is the bomb, cant wait o see him!

    A great tribute to Bear Fighter. Number 511 is still one of my favorite winders. This is an often under-appreciated Zoid. He offers a LOT of bang for the buck!

    Great Paint work. It gives me some ideas! :)
