Z is for Zoids

As a kid, I was never into models, even though they looked very cool on the store's shelf.  One problem with models was having to put the kits together and then they lacked articulation and probably wouldn't be safe to play with.  

Zoids, however, let me build something AND play with it.  I loved putting them together and having them battle like titanic monsters out of a Godzilla film...or the forthcoming Pacific Rim.

I was kind of startled, as a kid, how much I enjoyed putting them together and messing with them.  I guess, I was never much of a "builder", but part of me wanted to be one.  And Zoids help me express that.



I'd also like to send out a big thanks to the organizers of the A to Z Blog Challenge and to everyone who has come and visited me, old and new.
