The real question is, when is Sweet going to release the next Zero?

More great stuff coming out of Anigrand, as usual. Can't wait for the EF-132!!! Wonder what the bonus kits will be?

Om can you not wait until January to see what beauties Sweet give us next?

I vote for weekly Zero relases from Sweet. This way, they can get it completely out of their system and have no alternative but moving on to some new subject matter. Perhaps after a 6 month run of weekly Zero releases, they'd kill it off once and for all.

I mean, seriously. How many green zeros can someone build anyway? Even the most avid Zero collector must admit that the only difference between some of these new releases is just serial number decals on the tails. Perhaps they can just put out a few hundred decal sheets for every single Zero ever manufactured and get it over with.

It's not all bad though. Sweet's lack of non-Zero releases is just making room for more Anigrand kits, in both shelf space and finances.

By the way, I always thought that the EF-132 might have been the inspiration for the B-52. It'd be interesting to find out if that was actually the case or not. Superficially, it bears a lot of resemblance to the YB-52, specially in the canopy and overall shape. Can't wait to get my hands on this one, eventually!
