FYI that kit exists... the 1:144 kit from 0080.

Why? The point of HGUC kits seems to be to upgrade the kits that will
never be released as a MG kit. Right now it seems like every Gundam will
eventually become a MG kit, so there's no point in releasing them in the
HGUC line, not to mention you've already got 4 HG Gundams out.

A few words as to that claim: MG Zeta Gundam.

Although I'd love to have a complete line of chogokin 0079 suits, it looks
like the Zaku II will wrap it up. It just occurred to me that the "cheating"
joints found on the chogokin Gundam wasn't new - it was actually borrowed
from the PG Gundam. So it makes sense that Bandai won't release anymore
chogokin toys after the Zaku II, because there are only 2 PG designs out
there. At most we get a green chogokin Zaku II, but that's about it.

Too bad they make more designs for the lame MS in Action figures instead of
the kickass chogokin toys...
