Several MSV suits, the first one being the Black Tri-Stars' MS-06R-1A
high mobility Zaku IIs. The MS-06F Zaku II Minelayer (note how Bandai
forgot that the "F" designation was taken when they named the space
variant of the MG Zaku II kit), MS-14C Gelgoog Cannon, and of course
PF-78-1 Perfect Gundam were all fan creations that first appeared else
where before Bandai released them as plastic injection kits. The Perefect
Gundam came from the manga Plamo Kyoshiro, and the other designs came from
Hobby Japan's How to Build Gundam vol. II. In the same issue they also had
prototypes of what would eventually become the MS-06D Desert Zaku II and the
YMS-09 Dom Tropical Test Type.
