If you get the White Wolf one, you'll have to do some painting. For some
odd reason, Bandai decided to mold some parts like his heat hawk and other
minor parts in bright red. The red used in Johnny Ridden's R-2 is not the
same as the red used for Char's Zaku II, though.

They just might do another mold recycle!

MG Gouf is October IIRC. Dunno about the Ez8.

Avoid the Zeta like the plague. I think few will dispute that it is one of
the worst from the series. The ZZ on the other hand is a very solid toy.

I feel your pain. Lately I got fed up enough I just stick "wing" in the
exclusion parameters. If there are sellers stupid/greedy enough to list
non-Wing stuff under Wing, it's his loss, not mine.

Wow, I only got enough time to surf 1 auction site...
