2 amphibious suits haven't been MG'ed or HGUC'ed, not to mention MSV for
MG line.

I thought a while ago there was a rumor here about the next 0080 MG kit
being the Zaku FZ.

Hmm, so he wasn't involved with the previous 3 MG Gelgoog kits? I'd hate
to see Mika Akitaka's excellent design being messed with.

I think the Quel got the MG treatment by virtue of high % of borrowed parts
from the Alex/GM Custom... unfortunately the GP03S doesn't offer much
mold recycling to Bandai.

This sucker is so hard to pose in any scale. They got to figure out some
solution to the weight of the fin funnels. I'd love to see a 1/60 scale
MG F-91 or V2AB.

Wow... interesting idea! After all, they did put out a MG Super Gundam,
why not the original G Armor, which is much more fun to play with?
