Yamato released a diecast Zoid model in two colors for the Japanese and US markets. This was not a full model line, but a one-off kit in addition to a recolored variant exclusive to the company.

Yamato is known for making collectors items of large size, articulation, fine details, special features, and diecast metal.


Yamato released a large diecast Shield Liger based on the Zoid piloted by Van Flyheight in the Chaotic Century anime.

The company later created an expansion pack for the Zoid. While it did not carry the title of CP-01, the kit consisted of two plastic Beam Cannons (called Bazookas in the US) and the necessary attachments for the Zoid.

Yamato later released the Liger and expansion kit as the black-colored Shield Liger DCS-J.


CP concept


The first Yamato Zoid was released in December 2010. The beam cannon expansion went to market in June 2011. In late June 2012, the second Liger figure was distributed.

In North America, Yamato USA released the first Shield Liger in January 2011 under it Mechanical Collections with a manufacturers suggested retail price of $265 USD. The Shield Liger DCS-J made it to the US in early 2014.
