Actually, the description of the FXA-05D includes the RX-178, but you are

Well, by your on words "Mark's Law that it has to explicitly say "Gundam" in

I have this one, but I were to include it, I would have to include all none
storyline variants and scratch built kits like the FA-78-1 thru 7 and the
RX-78-5 thru 7.
