>Speaking of ugly MSs, have they EVER made a model of any form, resin, LG
>or whatever, of the following suits and armors?:
>MSM-04 Acguy (I THINK I saw an LG version of this on yahoo auctions...)
Originally released in '81, with a mild 1/100 retooling in '82.
A kit from '81. The only other model I've seen of it was a scratch built
Zero-Zock from the October issue of Hobby Japan. Looks really damn nice,
I'll try scanning some pics if it, if you want.
>MA-05 Bigro (I'd actually love to have a model of this... not sure why)
The only one I know of was, again, from '81.
>MAX-03 Azzam (Yes, I LOVE this thing)
Ditto. Looks like a large flying onion. Very retro. Released in '81, with a
groovy little RX-78 and Magellan (sp?) to pose along with it.
>MSN-01 Psycommu Zaku
Ah yeah, I remember listing this one as one of the dumbest looking models,
and with good cause. This one's from '84.
1/144 and 1/100 kits released in '82.
If this one has, it's certainly not in my ol' Gundam Bible over here. Just
seems to jump past it...
1/144 released in '82.
1/144 and 1/100 released in '82.
1/100 released in '82.
Well, hope this helps!

Likewise. When I first started modeling, I avoided them like the plague. But
now it seems I'm going a little soft for these old designs. They speake
volumes about the time in which they were created.
