I suppose I can see that many of the heads of the "Gundams" in the opening are actually the G-Bit head (my copy is kind of poor quality, but most look to have the black solid faceplate of a G-Bit), but I thought there were more of the actual Gundams themselves?

I just rewatched the opening of the first episode, and it seems like there were at least 2 Gundam Xs. One that has an arm and a head blown off, and then the one Garoud finds; although I can see how some people might argue that they are one and the same. I can't tell for the Airmasters and Leopards, but I guess I can see how it would be kind of campy if one group somehow gained control of all three remaining examples of these Gundams.

I just always thought there were more of them than just a couple of each. Thus, it would be a big coincidence that one group got one of each, but a coincidence none-the-less.
