But you will be able to get two versions of the Fazz...the FAZZ from ZZ and
the Sentinel Version.

I beg to differ. one just has to know the balancing trick with the gun (you
have to consider the gun as half of the MS, so that you will have an idea of
how to pose it) Another thing to consider is that you have to set a Point
of View. in other words, this kit would work well with a diorama that
suggests a point of view.

Exactly. That is BAD....

Yeah, am already starting to have problems just thinking about this...
