    It's not that hard to believe, since it's the first "major" transforming
MS that AE ever produced. Methuss didn't really count since almost everybody
agreed that it doesn't really look anything like Zeta Gundam. With such a
complex transformation, it is reasonable for AE to create several prototypes
to make sure everything that is put in Zeta Gundam is perfect. Besides, each
prototype might be a testbed for some sort of feature (maybe biosensor?)
that is not found in other Zeta prototypes. I never read a lot of Gundam
reference books, so I might be wrong...

My favorite Gundam of all times:
1) Nu Gundam
2) Gundam F91
3) V2 Assault-Buster Gundam
