This just in:

Gundam Mechanics V (2000.3.10, Hobby Japan, ISBN4-89425-219-8) 96 "pages"
(48 in color) for 1,905.

As with previous GM (!) books, this is a collection of 48 A5-notebook sized
cards (six-hole punched) bound between wraparound covers with a matching
slipcase. Each card is color on the recto side, B&W line art and specs on
the verso side.

GM5 covers the MS and MA from Gundam F91 and V Gundam or, more preceisely,
from UC 0123 to 0153. It's the last run of mechanics in the UC timeline,
barring a collection of G-Saviour, Gaia Gear and Turn A stuff. If the
series continues, it'll have to do so with the alternate universe
mechanics. Or maybe the ships and other mecha that are conspicuous by
their absence from this volume.
