Went by Legends on Saturday and they've already got the PG Zaku in stock.
No one bought it in the store though, at $180 + 8.25% sales tax, only 1
person picked a box up when they received the kits at the warehouse.

The box is done in the same style as the PG Gundam, a plain box with gold
lettering. The color is dark green, like the Zaku's torso. According to
the sales person, a bulb is included for the monoeye. The light switch is
right under the nose. Too many hatches open - even the elbow guard too.
The pictures in the manual somehow does not seem to show the same details
in the April issues of Hobby Japan and Dengeki Hobby, so many there were
some last-minute changes.

The machine gun was awesome. It's now back to the original design, not
the crooked version Katoki managed to fuck up completely with the MG version.
The kit comes with that and a heat hawk, too bad no other armaments are
provided (I see tons of custom sets in the future...). The head is much
smaller than the original 1/60 scale Zaku kit, but I'd have to put one
together to find out if the entire kit has been shrinked down in scale.
