Gundam Updates from Model Graphix May Issue EDITED

EDITED: Included image of GFF Psycho Gundam Mk. II

More updates on upcoming Gundam merchandises, this time from magazine scans of Model Graphix May Issue, and a few others from Hobby Japan not included in the previous posting.

GFF Psycho Gundam Mk. II - Late July release, 13,650 Yen.

MG Gelgoog Mass Productive Type Ver. 2.0 - I don't suppose the extra grenade launcher and stand for the beam rifle are the main attractions of this 'new' MG. ^^; In the end it's down to whether you like pink/red or gray/olive green better, ^^ or maybe both.

MG Sword/Launcher Strike - A little bit more exposure of the two weapons for this Strike.

MG Force Impulse - If you look carefully, there are some differences between the line art of BEE Craft-senshe and the CAD generated. For example, longer feet and sharper front skirt armors for the CAD version, but longer neck in the line art. I hope Bandai can find the best fusion between the two and release a really awesome Impulse.
Also, from the look of it, I believe the arm design will be exactly the same as that of Strike Freedom.

1/100 Astraea - That GN Launcher is extremely attractive, ^^ but I sure hope Bandai designed the handle to be movable, else adjusting the action poses for this weapon is going to be really annoying.
On the left are HG 1/144 Tieren Space Type Commander Unit (May release, 1,575 Yen) and FG Exia Roll-out Color Type for Gundam Double O Nintendo DS pre-orders, i.e. not for sale ^^;

FG Gundam O - Again, this item is not for sale ^^;

HG 1/144 Gundam Nadleeh - Plenty of pink is required for the shield.

HGUC Zaku II FZ - The MMP-80 Machine Gun has been redesigned as well - bigger (and meaner) and comes with a grenade launcher as well.

MSIA Gundam Throne Eins - the first Gundam in Team Trinity to be defeated, but the last to be released (June, 2,626 Yen) ^^;

HCM-Pro Tieren Space Type Set - So the changes between the normal and Sergei's unit are the head, shoulder shields and heels.
Now you get the idea of how much changes you can expect from the upcoming HG 1/144 version as well ^^;

BB Senshi Sangokuden - Koumei ReGZ comes with two face designs (ReGZ and Nu?)

RAHDX GA Ramba Ral - Megahouse's RAHDX series returns with Ramba Ral! Fans of Gundam 0079 or Gouf don't miss him! This will be a summer release but there's no mentioning of the price though. For your reference, the other Gundam figures in the series are priced at either 3,800 or 4,000 Yen.

Musha Keroro Gunsou Series - Quack Doctor Kululu, and the upcoming Giroro Wanderer (?) which will be available in May at 630 Yen.
