yes, it's basically the same stuff but like Win98 and WinMe, you need to pay
the full price for each. actually you can buy a cheaper version of WinMe
that will upgrade Win98, but not the same case for the RX-78-2.

anyway, just like I said, they have released a lot of different versions of
the RX-78-2 in the past year and I doubt they will come out with it in the
near future, but I won't be surprised if they do, maybe mid next year the
earliest? I think they'll concentrate on other kits first before making
that one

well, for one thing they don't have an MG Guncannon and Guntank while there
is an MG of the RX-78-2. of course they would make newer versions of old
kits because of the new technology, and of course if the kit is still
popular. but like I said, the past year or so, they have released 4
versions of the RX-78-2 and releasing an HGUC version of it would be
overkill, at least for this time. I'm sure they'd be more interested to
release other kits in the HGUC line. I'm praying for a better Jagd Doga and
other CCA kits.

anyway, that's just my opinion on it
