I stumbled across a pending Tamiya 1/48 German 88mm Gun Flak37 - "Siege of Tobruk", kit 37009.
Tamiya's site states it is in stock it also states:
    At this time, no further information is available about this product. We are constantly updating product information, pricing, and details so please check back later.

In the box is:
- Includes figures and accessories.
- Parts are included to enable the 88mm gun to be posed in deployed position or mounted on its wheeled carriage.
- Set comes with 8 Africa Corps infantry figures in lifelike poses.
- Included accessories: fuel drums, jerry cans, a tent, sandbags, and ammunition cases.

It also shows the 88mm is made by Italeri.

I thought Tamiya issued an 88mm with Afrika Korps figures shortly after they issued their first 88mm kit. I distinctly remember there being two differently priced kits -- one with figures, one without. Am I imagining this?

I think the 88mm gun is from italeri. The figures and other bits are tamiya. I'm not a 100%sure though.

I thought Revell released this set(or one very similar to), some time ago.?

Interesting repurposing of their accessories kits and ancient 88mm.

This is Italeri's 1/48 '88, and was only released 2 - 3 years ago. Probably looks better than Tamiya's ancient 1/35 one.
