The former is the "Char Aznable's RX-78 Gundam" recently discussed. It's
your basic RX-78-2 MG kit molded in Char's Zaku II colors. Casper was
Char's real name before he had to change it to join Zion's military academy.
4,500 yen for a kit whose original was only 2,500 yen?! I wonder what other
goodies you get with the package... even a chrome-plated kit cost 1,000 yen
less than that.

As for Gato's Gelgoog, don't get your hopes up for a Gelgoog Marine. It was
the Gelgoog you saw at the prologue to episode 1 of Gundam 0083, which was a
flashback to the battle of Abaowaku, when Gato was ready to hop into a RickDom
and return to the battle field. The Gelgoog Marine did not exist then, so it
was most likely a YMS-14, per Hobby Japan's Gundam Weapons MG Gelgoog issue.
Again, 5,500 yen! The original MG kit was only 3,000 yen, for 2,500 yen
more they give you something worth it!
