I thought it looked closer to a scale-down of the PG instead. This one
wasn't panel-line and markings crazy like the MG.

You just saw this one? It came out several months ago and the last one
from the series (Musha D-Hell Custom) just came out a few weeks ago. All
five Mushas from Wing can combine to form a huge Gundam.

You should have gotten the 1/100 scale one instead... IIRC, that one comes
with a plain Gundam and all the PG parts are add-ons, so you essentially get
2 Gundams for the price of one.
