Thats where I disagree, the 100 might resemble the Mk II in ways its kind of
impossible to make it from Mk II parts without Lots ( I do Mean lots) of
modifications. Hyaku Shiki will have to be a whole new kit, this is I guess
the reason Bandai Chose to make it HGUC. As for the Rick Dias it could use the
100's Back-pack buy thats all I guess.....

Well they have to start somewhere. They have to make something. The Zeta is
one of the most well known MS's in Gundam and GP02 is a smart way to go since
0083 has been released oversea's and is doing quite well not to mention the
domestic market. Besides bandai can easily make Z+ and Z II also Z+ A1.

MG Zeta?!! Its one of the better selling kits.
