LOL. Casper's Gundam MG kit is nothing new, those with good memories will
remember I mentioned about it in my post about Bandai's 1999 plastic models
catalog - the photo of the kit in a diorama shot took up 2 entire pages.

I wonder why Bandai charges so outrageously for these kits though, they MUST
come with something darn good to justify that kind of price... which is
nearly double the original!
