The green Zaku II didn't come with a figure. You get a Dopp instead (which
is rather cool). Maybe they'll throw in a Core Fighter or Ball with the G3?

I see... SoftBank must be seeing red now!

Good question! I just checked out the PG Zeta last night. Can't believe
they charged TWICE the amount of a PG Gundam kit, the box is not even 50%
larger than the PG Gundam. It's slightly taller than MG GP02A/Dom/Super
Gundam's box, and thicker than the PG Gundam's box. The outer box is not
your usual two-part (top fits over bottom) box, but a single body with opening
on the left and right sides. This carrying case houses 2 boxes inside, which
are about MG Dom-box-sized. One box has a drawing of Zeta in MS mode and the
other box shows the Waverider. 1st print edition comes with a holographic
motion card, similar to the ones that came with the 1999 Tokyo Plastic Model
and RC Fair show-exclusive MG Casval's Gundam and MG Gato's Gelgoog. In other
words, the cards appear unusually dark and must be held up against a light
source to view (quite impossible without removing it from its packaging,
because it was sealed in plastic with a cardboard behind it!). Tons of metal
screws, I guess snap-fit wasn't good enough for this massive kit.

Got the HGUC Gog kit too. Kinda strange they put this one out before a
Char's Zugock HGUC kit... Bandai hasn't been recycling molds for this
series yet, which is rather bizzare.
