Yeah, the moment they came out with the FAZZ, it opened the doorway big-time
for variant kits from non-cartoon timelines. Of course, the same can be
said of Char's Rick-Dom, but hey, the FAZZ has the Sentinel Option...

Good question: what if they come out with an MG kits of the GP04, which
basically have the same internal structure, but different armor plates?
That would be nasty....
