This is the third release in the Mobile Suit In Pocket (MSiP) line of
pre-assembled model-quality toys, akin to the High Complete Model (HCM)
series, released in conjunction with the V Gundam television series. There
were a total of 14, as follows:

---------------8<----------------- Clip & Save --------------->8---------------

01 = LM312V04 Victory Gundam 08 = ZM-S09G Tomliat
02 = LM111E02 GunEZ 09 = ZM-D11S Abigol
03 = CS-H926 Setter H926 10 = LM312V04+SD-VB03A V-Dash Gundam
04 = ZM-S08S Zoloat 11 = LM312V06 Victory Gundam Hexa
05 = ZM-S08G BESPA Zolo 12 = ZMT-S14S Contio
06 = ZM-S08G BESPA Zolo (Chronicle type) 13 = RGM-122 Javelin
07 = F91 Gundam Formula 91 14 = LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam

---------------8<----------------- Clip & Save --------------->8---------------

The first nine MSiP were 1,000 yen each, as were 11 and 13. MSiP 10 and 14
were 1,500 yen each and MSiP 12 was 1,200 yen. After HCM, I consider MSiP
to be the best Gundam toy line ever produced. (This may change if I ever
get any of the Chogokin Nano...)

The CS-H926 Setter is a flight support system (FSS) -- a human-piloted
giant aircraft adapted to serve as a aerial platform for MS. The earliest
FSS was the Dodai YS, a Zeon bomber used as a mount for the MS-07B Gouf.
Unlike earlier FSS, the Setter was designed from the outset to support MS
in this fashion.
