Sorry for the late reply, finally had some time to catch up with old posts.

The answer is no. Since the book did have prototypes and unreleased items,
the omission of these two items is a good indication that the prototypes
were probably never made in the first place. Then again, the book did not
include the prototype MicroGundams which were never released, whose photos
appeared in one of Bandai's catalogs. However, if these two HCMs were
planned, I don't see why no Shin Matsunaga MS-06R-1 were made, since Bandai
went to the trouble to make the Black Trinary & Johnny Ridden versions of the
R-type Zakus, and they could have gone on to make S/F/J types while they were
at it.

Guess Bandai was less "cheap" with their molds back then.
