Hmmm. good question. If you look at HLJ, there was a resin kit release in
1/144, I think, of the 08th version of the guntank. so, it's just a matter
cost efficiancy calculations on part of the accountants of bandai if we
will see this turned into a 0079 HGUC kit version. The HG rx78 from way
back still is comparable to the HGUC, I think, so there probably be no HGUC
version coming out.

The FG isn't bad, really...I have one now, and i have to admit, I am
impressed with what they've been able to do with no polycaps. it is a very
good kit, all things considered.
