80s/90s Misc Releases

Original European Release

Mid 80s. Europeans got a full blown story line with their release, as well as a unified color scheme: Red vs. Blue. I don’t have many of these, because the auctions are always in Pounds, which make them hell of expensive in worthless US dollars.

(Blue) Brontozoid

aka RMZ-07 Hidocker in the OJR. This one shares several parts with other “whiteheads”.

(Blue) Cosmozoid

aka RMZ-08 Pegasuros in the OJR. This was the last zoid I needed to complete my “whiteheads” collection. It’s a bit dopey looking, but it grew on me, and it will grow on you too. Cosmo got his own little storyline in the European comic, back in 80s times. Poor fella…

Beware: the blue plastic on this one is very brittle!

(Blue) Great Gorgon

My first big OER release! Sometimes listed on ebay as “Great Gordon” (which makes me think they’re selling a Canadian superhero). I liked the new Gordos just fine, until I saw this one. Nothing beats black with OER grey.

(Blue) Hydrazoid

This is my favorite windup by far. Back when I got this (in 1999), they were hell of rare and I paid through the nasal passages. They pop up every so often, though.

(Blue) Hydrazoid (Build Review)

OK, not so much a review as it is some highlights of the neato workings. This is because I’m lazy.

(Blue) Kroc

I almost gave up getting one of these, since the auctions were always expensive, but somehow I snagged one for only 6GBP (back when the Pound wasn’t totally killing the Dollar). This is the best color scheme of the “Barigator” style, as is often the case with OERs.

(Blue) Zillon

OER incarnation of the Mighty Iguan. I think this is the best color scheme, and apparently so does everyone else, because this was a pricey one.

(Red) Znake

In the OER, if a zoid didn’t have “-zoid” in its name, it started with a Z, just so you got the point. Such as: “Zear” (rhyming with “bear”, I assume), Zolkon (Reddra), and Zillon. Anyway, look at that silver and red. This is why people love the OER so much.
