And then there's the... 1/250 or 1/550 scale resin kit of the whole GP-03...
hundreds of dollars for it. Even if they scale a MG GP-03 down to 250 or
550 the kit will probably still end up selling for 12,000 yen or more.
And once they have a non-1/100 scale MG kit, MG Bigzam is only a matter of
time...

The GP-04 is a "what-if" design, since the Gerbera Tetra was supposed to be
GP-04 chasis with new, Zionic-looking armor plating. The now-accepted
design by a certain artist (forgot his name) was used by B Club when they
released a resin kit of it, and I believe Dengeki Hobby recently ran a side
bar of it (probably the April issue). the design is very elegant and very
compatible with its predecessors in the GP series.
