Nope, just the pistol, rifle, two beam rifles, bazooka, and shield. I may
scan them if I feel like it, or can get an access to a scanner or both.

I really shouldn't say improvements yet, but more like differences. But
that's to be expected. Also, I am hoping that they apply some of the lesson
learned from previous MGs...

Nope. There will be few differences as I noted in the previous msg.

Nicely detailed, but cockpit detail will be no different than the Mk. II at
best or MG Gundam at worst

On the surface, it's as the same as the original MG. No verdict on any
differences yet...

I can now dream of B-Club doing all the 0083 GM conversion parts. Oh boyo.
I'd rather that Bandai did them a la PG Gundam upgrade parts... Now that
sir, would be f****ng cool, and definately earn a kick ass rating.
