  Right! It's not so much a 'retoconned' Gouf as a "Modernized" Gouf.
I.e., it's basically the same exact mecha with the same exact features but
better detailing, improved proportions and overall shapes giving it a more
1990's feel. That's what I'm hoping for in this new line of models!

  Just the Goufs (and you can TELL).

  It may be realistic, but the first time I saw it I almost fell over
laughing! Those guns pack a HELL of a recoil! Not surprising that they
went to beam-cannons in the GM-Cannon-II, though it irks me that I don't
think they ever _fired_ the darn cannons in 0083! (At least, I don't
remember seeing Keith ever fire his guns.)

  Yeah, it would be about time! GunTANK! GunTANK! GunTANK!
