Another Methuss/ZG observation, the ZGII MSV in the transformed type also
looks very similar to the Methuss. Here's a theory, perhaps the Methuss
was slated to be ZG, and I don't mean IN the anime, but FOR the anime.
Why would the transformation used by the Methuss be echoed in ZGII and the
ReGZ Back Weapon System (if you really call that a transformation)? I
don't to argue to the death with anyone on the Methuss and it's evolution
to other things, but I just want voice my observations.
