Packaging was less troublesome that in other models (the Zundapp in particular), it does include several simple diorama elements and a few accessories including: ammo boxes and a box to contain them all, a can of motor oil, the machine gun, spare tire and a cat, yes, a fucking grey cat.
I bought it brand new for $45 S&H included, at present its price range goes from $45 to $80 on ebay, there are many available, this one is not out of production.
I think that in the particular case of the unit I recevied, the quality standards were lowered in the following aspects: gunner paint job is very low quality, something that look as if it was done in a rush, the hands of this gunner won't fit in the MG handlers, it is very difficult to place the gunner firing the MG. The .50 cal has a missing piece, that oval below the barrel. There is no weathering on the spare tire nor the MG. I think these are production mistakes, because I have seen the official pictures of this product in the FOV Ad and it looks somewhat better in all the forementioned aspects.
The back cover can be removed, I prefer this look, it is more "Commando mode" for raids.
All in all, I like this unit very much, will be a fantastic diecast replacement for my all plastic, fragile old Monogram M34, with a little customization, it will be a great Commandos transport in episode 3, as well as a rapid attack/raid vehicle.
