Not any closer than when the MG Zaku II first came out...

Let's see...

1 MG MS-06F/J
2 MG MS-06S (Char's Custom)
3 MG MS-06R-1 (Shin Matsunaga's high mobility)
4 MG MS-06R-2 (Johnny Ridden's high mobility)
5 MG MS-06F/J Crystal
6 MG MS-06S Crystal
7 MG MS-05B (regular grunts)
8 MG MS-05B (Black Tri Star custom)
9 MG MS-06R-1A (Black Tri Star high mobility)
10 MG MS-06S Coating
11 MG MS-06F/J Coating
12 MG MS-05(B?) (Rambal Ral custom)

at this rate, we're gonna see every friggin' Giren's Greed "what-if" kits of

MG MS-14B Gelgoog (Black Tri Star high mobility)
MG MS-14B Gelgoog (Anavel Gato high mobility)
MG MS-14B Gelgoog (Shin Matsunaga high mobility)
MG MS-14B Gelgoog (Johnny Ridden high mobility)
MG MS-14B Gelgoog (Ramba Ral high mobility)

MG MS-09 Dom (Ramba Ral custom)

Basically every color variation seen in MediaWorks' Gunpla Manual 2!!!
They should release the high mobility Gyan as a MG kit instead! But that
will probably be before another dozen MG Zaku color variants get pumped out!

Would be cool, but I *really* doubt we'll see a GM Light Armor... too
little gimmicks with that kid.
