Ok this is getting out of hand. In NA-lingo, LG just mean the original model
series from 1980-1983. When I say a kit is LG, it means either it's from that
series, or that it has the same technical qualtiy as that series.

Very strictly speaking, MSV (1983-85?) are already non-LG as they are
marginally superior. But loosely speaking, anything without polycaps and
require a lot of painting might be called LG.

It's strictly NA-quirkiness. In the above case, I was discussing the LG Ball
kit which comes with a 1/250 and a 1/144 Ball (0079 of course). As far as
I know, the LG Ball was the first injection Ball, the LM Ball was the second
and last injected Ball (so far).

I wish they had come up with more Balls: Ball-booster, Missile Ball, Recon
Ball, Heavy Ball, Ball Interceptor, Ball Tank, Ball Marines, Ball Darth Vader
Custom. Sigh, Balls don't get no respect in Gundam.

Hmm... what's Haro's favority MS?
