  The thing is, the only picture I've seen of the GM with that gun is of a
model of it (are we actually going to _get_ this model from Bandai, BTW?)
holding the rifle off to one side... I don't see how it's possible for
this GM to actually hold that huge gun with its huge telescoping sight up
to its 'eyes' without tipping over! How did it handle this huge behemoth
cannon in the anime?
  I wonder if this GM carries some sort of sidearm 'just in case'?

  WOW! That's a gun that could have won the 1YW! Imagine the short work it
would have made of just about every monster Mobile Armor we've seen so

  I see... well, it doesn't look like anything special, other than for the
more 'subdued' camo color scheme...

  Hey, is it just me, or does the Asparas look _really_ goony with those
giant giant "Balloon Knees" that it has? I mean, if you filled those
things with helium instead of M-particles the thing could probably float
away on them! And the giant tripod legs make it look like a reject from
"War of the Worlds" or "Evangeleon"! That is just a really strange looking


  I officially suggest that the official name of this GM variant to be
"RGM-79[GBA] GM BadAss Type". Hey, does that gun remind anyone else of the
big sniper rifle from Evangeleon?
