You guys are correct. I didn't flip the photo at all,
and the GM is in fact holding the beam gun w/ left
hand and the shield on the right. Here's our link to

I like the lefty idea a lot, but i doubt any artist /
writers, let alone Tomino, will put forth a lefty as
main character / mecha on animation. That's because
ppl 's are pre-occupied by the orthodox 'right-hand'
idea, and using a lefty to sell your merchandise may
not go well.
