Whoa, long time no e-mail folks. My telecomm service host had been
gone through some kind of general system makeup, so I couldn't receive
any mail from the ML for some time. :(

And don't forget the RGM-79Q GM Qwell, too. Its arms and legs design
shares some similiraty with the Mk-II (Katoki's good move). Where can
you find it? Easy. Just watch the epilogue footages from OVA episode
#13. Or take a look at 'Data Collection: ZG Titans Edition', pg.4.

For your information, the idea on its famous face mask and tricolor scheme
was suggested by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, according to his interview with G20
(vol.4, pg.18). Funny thing is, these two elements were also succeeded to
Turn-A design, although it throw out all other elements done by Okawara.
(except for some minimal details like two beam-saber, etc... :)

Strange. I heard that it first appeared on the pages of GUNDAM WEAPONS 3,
published by Hobby Japan, not MGX... but that's not that important anyway.
