  Thanks for the review! I wanted to pick up at least one book on this
game, but hadn't decided which (a large-format Softbank book like the
Blue Destiny, Z Gundam, and CCA ones would be ideal, but I don't know if
they're planning to release one).

  Listies, you can see a cover image of this book at

  He's the commander of the Federation's Australian forces, the opposite
number to Zeon's Walter Curtis.

  Ah, that would be the mystery machine that my friend Toshi couldn't get
a good look at... it's so lethal that he had to fight it by hiding behind
a building and popping up like a jack-in-the-box to blast it with his
bazooka. ;-)

  Toshi claimed it had a Zaku head and a huge particle cannon, which made
it sound like a land version of the Apsaras (hmm... Rynosaras, Apsaras?).
Does it bear any resemblance?

  And does anything look different about the G type Gelgoog? The comic
adaptation in Magazine Z made it look just like the MG kit, but I think
the artist was just using the model kits as drawing reference...

  "Tochka" is just a Japanese term for "pillbox." :-)
