Oh yeah... it's no secret that all of these G Generation Zero kits are
"re-issues" of old school SD Gundam kits. The first wave had bonus parts
so you get extra accessories or option parts to build a different mecha,
but wave 2 looks identical to their originals.

Since many of the original SD Gundams are getting hard to find now, it's not
really a ripoff to get the G Generation Zero ones when you see stores trying
to charge 3 times the original price for the old SD Gundam kits.
