After what Bandai did with the MG Sazabi, I think the days of extra-fancy
panel lines are over... they're applying the assembly line mentality to the
MG kits and so you can also kiss the less humanoid looking suits (e.g.
Hygog, etc.) goodbye for MG kits, since every new release would have to
conform to the existing skeleton/frame.

It'd be interesting to see if the MG Nu will be able to stand and balance
with that huge rack of FF equipped.
