First 3 MG kits to come out were:
MS-06F/J Zaku II
MS-06S Zaku II
They came out around late 1995 (Thanksgiving).
Then these came out in 1996:
MS-06R-1 Shin Matsunaga
MS-06R-2 Johnny Ridden
Crystal kits of RX-78-2, MS-06S, and MS-06F/J
MS-14S Gelgoog came out towards the end of 1996
Early 1997 is really dead for MG kits, we only saw
MS-14B/C Gelgoog Cannon
cos Bandai was too busy cranking out Wing kits, then by late 1997:
MS-14A Gelgoog - this has a slightly different head, weapon, and body parts
but was still no major departure from the original mold.
In 1998 we got the GP-02A and the Mk-II kits (AEUG, Titan, Super). Also
the RX-78-2 and Zeta were plated.
Early 1999 - Zaku I kits (regular & Black)
Summer - MS-06R-1A and Dom
Late 1999? - NT1 - Alex
No annoucement of any Dom variants yet, but RickDom should be out in a year.
Don't hold your breath for a RickDom II, though.
