A Zoid and Stuff

In: 2000s Misc Releases > Rebirth Century

GRZ-004 Dark Nessios

A big part of the Rebirth line seems to be re-tooling and updating old designs. This one takes Brachios and makes it into a plesiosaur, which in turn makes me very happy. In the ancient times (2001), a hobby magazine showed a Brachios-to-Plesio kitbash (one, two), so I’ve been hoping for an official bash for some time. In other news, Hydrazoid is sad at not being the coolest (and only) plesiozoid anymore.

The only bummer to this kit (besides not being a real swimmer) is that there are no eyes on the new head. The ones on the box are ’shopped. I cut off some extra bits from the purple sprue to make mine.

This kit also comes with the parts to make Brachios (Dark Army Specification). I may build and shoot that variant some day, but for now I’m lazy. Laziness is also the reason these pics are terrible. That, and no sunlight.

    And it comes with the Brachiosaur variant??
    Well, I want to have both so I guess I’ll have to buy two sets…
    Oh, and are both of the heads different??

    @Bloodthirstwolf: The kit is basically a recolored Brachios, with extra sprues for the Nessie parts. The Nessie head is different (a little longer), and there’s an extra segment you add to make the neck longer.

    Ohhh…I see. That’s pretty cool :D
    Also…what tools did you use to cut off material for the eyes you had to put in??

    @Bloodthirstwolf: Just a really sharp xacto knife. Cut the flat part of the sprue in the corner that has the tree number or “copyright Tomy” stuff.
