This kit is now available in HK & i looked at the box
art & side panels. it lacks leg thruster (i guess
because Old Zak is an early MS), and for all the
historical reason, it has to look simplistic compare
to Zaku II. That said, it's as detailed as it can be +
the relativity complete set of weapons made it
tempting for customers.

that's it!

other than the fact that it's Old Zak who use this
kind of shield long before Gelgoog Marine, i guess

the 240mm bazooka can be store behing the waist a la
Gundam mkII, but no buckles to snap on the machine
it must be held by hand.

look pretty much like the 120mm, but it has a smaller
calibre (105mm). Also it's the very first Zaku machine
gun. I have some vague memory the '80s LG/UG Old Zak
model kits also come with this.

but u'll also get one of the mini figure of the BT
member w/ this kit. This, PLUS the minifigure from the
MG Zaku II BT version AND the one from MG Dom, will
complete the BT team! some great marketing from
Bandai, eh? :P
