That's because the BB kits didn't come out until sometime before CCA was
released (probably mid 80s), but the earliest numbers did indeed belong to
OYW suits. They just kept jumping back and forth without a real masterplan
on release pattern. Eventually they ran out of designs and started
releasing nothing but BB Gundams with different samurai armor, which IMHO
sucked. The SD MG GP-01Fb was a much needed and welcomed change, which in
a way was a back-to-basics approach of SD Gundam parodies. I just got mine
and it is absolutely fabulous. While there is nothing MG about the kit
(okay, so the parts treet were manufactured using Systme Injection, but this
has been done on SD kits before) itself, the box and the manuals were
perfect parodies of the real thing. On the side panel of the box, it even
had a "related kits" which is usually reserved for kits from the same series,
but for the first time ever a MG kit was actually advertised on a SD Gundam
kit's box! And the kit is? MG GP-01Fb, of course!
