(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.

040 War Shark (Holotech)

The clear plastic on this one was even more brittle than usual, and the pegs that hold the feets did not survive my last move without a dab of super glue. Still, Holo-fishy wins points for being the most “holotech’d” of the line (but it would have been nice to have smoky grey boosters too). As with all my holos, I had to get this from a contact in Australia.

There were two variants of this kit, but since I never look in the box, I keep forgetting which one I have. I picked it up in a tiny shop in Seattle’s Chinatown (ahem, International) district back in 2001 and haven’t had a chance to open it since.

EHI-01 Wardick

Another “swimmer”! Back in ’95, this one’s name was a source of endless giggles for my younger brothers. This one and Guysack…

EMZ-19 Sinker

A Zenebas “swimmer”. The tanks help keep it afloat, and a tiny propeller in back… propels it.

RMZ-10 Furolesios

Mint in Box! I never thought I’d get this one, but somehow it was totally ignored on ebay and I got it for $36! See OER Hydrazoid for a built one.

Sinker (OJR/NJR)

As soon as I got theNJR Sinker (back in 2000), I made these swaps. I think I like the silver one better. Due to slight mold differences, the back vent piece is incredibly difficult to remove, post swap.

Unnamed frog type

It really swims, though I’ve never had the courage to test it myself. The tanks have a piece of styrofoam in them to make them float (see pic #4). Known as RMZ-05 Aquadon (OJR), or Aquazoid (OER), or “frog looking thing” here.
