Zoids Models

This "Dark Horn" looks cool to me for some reason. Love the color scheme.

Does anyone know if these new releases still move and walk?

I don't know if they move and walk, but mine do.  If you're interested in some zoids, let me know, i'll cut you a deal.

The new Koto HMM Zoid kits from my understanding, do not move and walk.  I think you are talking about the Tomy Zoid kits with those features.  The HMM Zoid kits like that Dark Horn are much more detailed and have a wider range of motion but are strictly just models.  I just began jumping into the Zoid kit world.  I wasn't much of a fan of the Tomy kits but the Zoid HMM kits were great, although often times much more expensive then Bandai MG kits.

That Mega Man is a must have though.

shenphong is correct. They definitely do not move and walk. Not the HMM series by Koto.
They DO have enough room in them to put parts from the Takara Tomy line that DO still move and walk,but I wouldn't attempt it myself. 
The HMM series is far more detailed though. My liger even has real springs etc. Also some of the HMM kits are more pose-able than others. I have a Sheild Liger http://www.kotobukiya.co.jp/item/page/pk_zoids_shieldriger/index.shtml and a Command Wolf http://www.kotobukiya.co.jp/item/page/pk_zoids_commandwolf-lc/index.shtml still in boxes.
I'd like to trade my Sheild Liger for this guy http://www.kotobukiya.co.jp/item/page/pk_zoids_sabertiger/index.shtml if anyone is interested.
All the rest of the series (the dark/red horn)are below.
Hope this helps.
gt's.
