  What I'll bet they do is what they did with the Dougram kits. Original
Japanese instruction booklet plus a plain B&W fold-out sheet with the same
pictures, but the model-building instructions (only) in english.

  If they come out in the US I will simply go back and buy all the MS I
really liked, or wanted to paint differently, or screwed up years ago, or
that I just want to build again. For example, the 0080 GMs, I LOVE those
little guys!

  But who cares about Unit #3? I mean, you hardly even _see_ the whole
mecha until the very last minutes of the very last episode! It probably
wins the prize for the "Gundam design with the least airtime"

  New GM variants, hell, ANY 0083-styled upgraded designs would HIT THE
SPOT. So we can be sure that Bandai won't do it. Nah, we're more likely to
get a retro-70s MG "Accguy" before we get any of the kick-butt 0083
