  Yes! I remember hearing a while back a rumor that it was going to be the

  Yeah... it's kinda goofy. The Zak-III was actually one of the better ZZG
model kits, and it's still available here and there! I heard the revival
version will be the command psychommu variant or something like that.

  So, of the four resurrected old designs so far, we've got two MSG kits
and two ZZG kits... interesting! I sure hope we get some 0083 stuff soon!

  Those are pics of the regular EW kits with the 'early add-on' parts...
perhaps the early-kits themselves may be more subtly different.
