2017 - NEW YEAR BEGINNINGS & FINDS - PART 1 - ZERO-SEEDERS

2017 - NEW YEAR BEGINNINGS & FINDS - PART 1 - ZERO-SEEDERS

Welcome to the 2017 Robo-Synergy New Year Beginnings & Finds!
As mentioned in my last post for 2016 I will review the Zero-Seeder toys I found.
I hoped everyone had a great Christmas and wish you all a blessed safe Happy New Year!!

ZERO-SEEDER
The Zero-Seeder is a toy line by HERO. It has a rich selection of different types of transforming robots. If you would like to see more about them I highly recommend checking out this link to find out more about them.

DRAGON SEEDERS

The front of the packaging is very nicely detailed with a lot of bright colours and a lot of text describing the title and series.

The back of the packaging shows the instructions on the left side and the right side shows the other teams you can collect.

The left and right sides of the box shows each toy/character with square grids behind them and nice use of colours to blind in together with everything.

The top of the box shows the insect mode artworks and has a handle in the center which is neat if you'd like to it carry around while travelling. The bottom of the box shows the robot mode artworks.

And finally the toys and accessories themselves which come on stryofoam tray insert.


COMMAND SEEDERS

Next up we have the Command Seeders giftset. A wonderful set to have, the front of the box has a lot of detailing like the Fighting Insects.


Back of the box shows the toy instructions and other Zero-Seeder toys.


Top and bottom parts of the box have the wonderful artwork with top of the reptiles and bottom the robots.

Left and right sides of the box show both the reptile and robot modes with colourful design and detailing.

And for the toys come in styrofoam tray insert.

COMPARISONS
I did some comparisons with the toys from the international versions and they appear to be the same in quality and production. The main part that separates these Japanese sold versions is the toy packaging box which I find so interesting!

Left: Japanese version | Right: International version




CLOSING THOUGHTS
When I first saw a more closer look at these, I loved the way they are presented. The amount of detailing and effort that was put into selling them with the toy packaging and toys is something I really appreciate. And it's really cool to finally do some comparisons and see how they differ from other releases. Special thanks to redstarrobot.com

2016 - YEAR END FINDS

2016 - YEAR END FINDS

Hello and welcome visitors to my 2016, year end finds!
I was fortunate to discover some interesting and cool finds right before the end of the year. I'm going to show 2 gift sets that I found. 

The sets are the ancestors of the international Fighting Insects and Invading Reptiles. The toy series was called Zero Seeder or (Shida, Cedar, or Ceeda) and were made by Japanese toy companies Hero, Mark, and Select. The same toy companies who made the Sacred Beast Legend Bioroid series. They used the same toy molds from that Bioroid series to make the Zero Seeder toys and gave them different paint jobs, new head sculpts, new stickers, new toy packaging, some new toy artwork, and creating a whole new toy backstory and characters.
Check out the toys below! I've added links below for the sets to show the comparisons between the Japanese versions to the English international versions.

DRAGON SEEDERS
International versions: Fighting Insects

COMMAND SEEDERS
International versions: Invading Reptiles

These came right on time before Christmas and served well as gifts to myself. Special thanks to redstarrobot.com 

In 2017 I'll do a full review of everything on these toys.

I wish you all a safe, happy, and Merry Christmas for 2016!

Kind regards,
Robo-Synergy

INVADING INSECTS - TOY ARTWORK

INVADING INSECTS - TOY ARTWORK

Welcome to the INVADING INSECTS - TOY ARTWORK ! (Also known as Robo-Invaders, Winged-Bots, Insecto Robots and many more!)
In this post I will show my own personal scans of the wonderfully created toy artworks of the Invading Insects series featuring both their alternate and robot modes.
To describe each toy artwork I'll use the common international english names given to them.

SWAT
Insect mode: Fly
Robot mode
BITE
Insect mode: Mosquito
Robot mode
STING
Insect mode: Hornet
Robot mode
MOTH
Insect mode: Moth
Robot mode
Note: There are some certain parts for each toy artworks that don't reveal the full image and details of the character. This is due to certain parts being cropped out or another character is overlapping each other with another character.
I did my very best to create full detailed versions of each toy artwork with all my resources I have.
If in the future I do find more accurate resources for the ones I need to complete, I will be sure to update them!

I hope you enjoyed viewing the INVADING INSECTS - TOY ARTWORK
