Zoids (1983)[edit | edit source]

The Hammer Rock was released in Japan as part of the Zoids (1983) line. It was introduced in 1986.

The Hammer Rock comes on four frames along with a small wind-up motor, a separate head piece, a clear canopy, two sprues of six rubber caps each, a small silver-chrome pilot and label sheets. The Hammer Rock is molded in maroon and silver with a red canopy. The head was shared with several other Imperial Zoids, including the Malder and Molga.

The Zoid uses a simple wind-up motor for its motion; once wound, the Zoid walks forwards at a reasonable pace. The Zoid's head, chest armor, shoulder and back weapons can all be manually positioned, and the canopy opened.

A gold-chromed Hammer Rock was released by Tomy as a contest prize. It is one of the sole official chromes from the 1983 line.
