LOL, and this is only the beginning of the onslaught of new MG kits -
RickDom, ZZ, GM Custom, and GM Quell! Not to mention more HGUC kits on the
way too... and possibly more First Grade kits after Char's Zaku II?

I've heard a happy solution everytime a complaint for it was posted here...

Mine's still sealed in shrinkwrap, so I will find out later. :) Don't seem
to recall a trigger hand on the left of the Mk-II though... all I remember
was "Damn, too many hands to put together!"

Most likely not - depending on the weight of the weapon. It may do okay
with the beam saber, but with the beam rifle I am willing to bet it cannot
give a proper grip.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Time to find out if Rainbow Ten offers part
ordering service...

I don't think there was any tube on the Alex, but it looks like they carried
over the MG Mk-II's working pistons for the Alex's foot joint.
