The Blade Liger is one of the most iconic Zoids alongisde Shield Liger, Liger Zero and Gojulas. Featured as the main Zoid of the first anime, Zoids Chaotic Century, and featured in some episodes of Zoids New Century and Zoids Fuzors.
The blue variation of the Blade Liger, the one piloted by Van, did not see a release in the regions handled soley by Hasbro. While they did show a prototype at a Toy Fair, their version of the kit barely went beyond that,
The biggest difference between the Tomy and Hasbro Blade Ligers aside from the color lies in the fangs and teeth. On any Tomy Blade Liger they’re diecast metal, while on the Hasbro releases they’re plastic.
Another thing that did not see a release in the Hasbro handled regions was the CP 12 Attack Booster accessory that could be bought for the Blade Liger motorized kit.
The Blade Liger is a medium sized Zoid, with a fairly easy level of assembly.
