This line started as re-issues with minor retoolings of old, out-of-print
classic/non-musha SD Gundam kits. They either got bonus weapons (in the
case of the Nu and Sazabi, for example) or were reissued as a variant
(the GM Custom being an extreme case, being a retooled version of the SD Alex
NT-1). The first wave consisted of 19 such kits. The next wave were straight
reissues of the ones from F-90, F91, V, and G Gundam without any bonus parts
or variant retoolings. Then came the new toolings in the following waves
that were all over the map - Gouf Custom, Char's Zugock, Gundam X, Geminass
from G Unit, and the Mk-IV make up the 3rd wave. Wave 4 were the 5 Gundams
from Wing. Wave 5 included the Ez8, Dom, Turn-A, mass produced Zugock, etc.
The GP02 is not really considered an integral part of the SD G Generation
releases as it was bunched with the BB Senshi series and has no serial number
within the SD G Generation series like all the other MG/PG parodies that
include the GP01Fb, Zeta, RX-78-2 PG version, and the GP03D.
