Hmm.....another must get PS game...and I've yet to finish G-Generation

Wow, Thanks for the info, I guess I can wait sometime to see that final
production pic. Well...I thought that Gelgoog Ver. Simmons has a rather long
neck. I'm tempted to do that "Anti Battleship Cannon" MS-14B Gelgoog
variation in HJ's MG Gelgoog special mook, Though I question the logic behind
that variation..I mean the isn't the beam rifle already powerful enough? I
think I will get the MG MS-14B next time I order from HLJ

Hey, that does make sense, though the White Wolf is most loyal to
Dozul...Shouldn't Giren lefted him to die with Dozul instead?

Wow, I never realized that the R type Zakus are that close in power with the
Rick Dom....I do learn something new everyday :-)
