Sounds more like a ripoff if you already have the original. This is more
like a reprint for the benefit of new fans who did not get a copy of the
original book than a revision that'd included additional material from 0083
and 08th MS Team (at least that sounded like what MS Era 0099 was meant to
be).

I sure hope the new Gundam Model Perfect Catalog ver 2.0 is not done like
this...
