Doesn't matter. Bandai'd sooner do recolored mold recycles than retool a
mold for variants. The two GMs from 0083 have so much shared body parts
with the Alex, so they get the MG treatment. No such luck for designs that
can't be recycled for variants, thus no MG Kampfer.

I dunno about that. This ML bitched and whined literally for years for a
MG Dom, but when it eventually came out, I don't hear much from people who
bought the kit (maybe Gus, Mark and Roger, that's about it), but instead hear
complaints about how pricy it was, how bland and non-MG it looks like, etc.
Just wait and see how people pull a 180 when the MG Nu and Sazabi come out.
