It's actually an R-1A. Shin Matsunaga's is a R-1 variant, which is older.
Johnny Ridden has a R-2 variant, which is the best of the lot.

Maybe PG then... hehehe.

How easy to find is this kit? I haven't seen it a lot after it was first

Must be a case of bum polycaps...

If they don't, there's not much point in releasing the kit then.

The HGUC kit is the original Gouf piloted by Ramba Ral. Now Gouf Custom
might have a better shot since it was only released as a 1/144 08th MS Team
kit, much like the RX-79(G).
