This will sure follow the release of the MG Dom.

I dunno about this one, major retooling is required and look at how many
Zaku and Gelgoogs that require less retooling to get a MG kit made still
haven't showed up.

Fuggettaboutit! No variants, not worth the effort.

Likely... if Bandai indeed is thinking about releasing a MG "classic" Zaku II
then I don't see why they wouldn't release the FZ first.

Is there really enough gimmicks/differences from the plain vanilla GM to
justify it? I'd rather see a GM Sniper or GM Cannon first.

OVA and movie kits generally do less well than TV kits - more exposure =
bigger potential market. The fact that the 0083 Gundams were made into MG
kits really suprised me and I think that's more of an exception rather than
the norm.
