Actually those are leftovers from the backpack and the legs. You will notice
that the R variant uses shorter cables on the legs and from the chest to the
backpack. The extras may make a complete set, though.

:) Sticking one end of the cable to something that can sit on the table
(something like Playdough) definitely worked for me.

Don't remember for sure what kind of decals those were, I need to check on it,
but I think they might have been dry transfers.

The original 1/60 Zaku's monoeyes did not move at all. The rumored PG Zaku
still hasn't been confirmed as far as I know.
