The original of this kit came out at the 15th Anniversary of Gundam. If I
remember correctly, it was done by Workshop Cast. The original went for
98000 yen. A company in HK recently reopened the mold and had added a pair
of closed fist and a bazooka to it. Word from HK is that the kit was done
real nice, but that particular manufacture's resin mix is not that
desirable. All in all, one AWESOME kit.
