Despite my initial hatred of all things Blox, I had to get this one right off, on account of my undying love of aquatic zoids. It sat in storage for years, until I dug him out with plans to raid his parts for my Killer Bee custom. Lucky for Mosasledge, his parts were not right, so he lives on. This one would look a million times better with panel lining and details painted on.
I am adding that to my eternally long zoids to-do list.
I got this one because I wanted to try the fusion with Storch, and also because Toy-Wave had them on sale for $2. Unfortunately, after trying to assemble the guy I still feel like I paid too much. This is one of a few kits (along with the Storm bros.) that had a really bad production run, making the maroon plastic incredibly brittle. So brittle I didn’t even have to cut the pieces off the sprue; just press gently. The head halves broke when I tried to put them together, so I ended up just gluing it. The “second head” (the one that’s used in the Storch fusion) shattered when I tried to attach it to the blox connector peg. The Storch mount is still ok (for now), but I’m worried.
AVOID THIS ZOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!
This is why I got Deantler. The “official” fusion looks a bit odd, but I like having the new head on regular Storch, despite the lack-of-pilot situation it creates. (I also had no idea how to fit the blox cockpit on, so I just rested it in place for pics.)
Savinga came at the end of the NJR, and combined with Whitz Wolf to form the severely underwhelming Whitz Tiger. I ended up liking Savinga better on its own and chucking the wolf. Depending on which head you use, it is a momonga type (big eyes), or flying squirrel type (grey head). A lot of people use this kit to make bunny customs.
