It's actually kind of obvious once you look at it that the design is
more inspired by the Alpha Azrael than the NZ. In particular, look at the
folding arms and shoulder-armors! Marc just wanted a 'Zakish' small-fry
bad-guy robot, so he reduced the number of AA 'Fuel Pylons' to one large
one, and gave it a more realistic engine on the rear of it, and fuel tanks
(more inspired by the 0080 Dom and other models). The similarity to the NZ
comes more from the fact that the NZ somewhat resembles the AA in some
The _real_ NZ homage/conversion in JC is the Dragonstriker, which is a
really really neat design!
