  1. Not much of a secret for such a short series.
    It's going to be something from:

    FA-78 Full Armor Gundam (Thunderbolt Sector)
    RB-79 Ball (Thunderbolt Sector)
    RGM-79 GM (Thunderbolt Sector)
    MS-05 Zaku l (Thunderbolt Sector)
    MS-06 Zaku II (Thunderbolt Sector)
    MS-06R Zaku II High Mobility Type (Reuse 'P' Devise)
    MS-09R Rick Dom (Thunderbolt Sector)
    MS-14A Gelgoog (Thunderbolt Sector)

    Most of which can be reused from existing MGs.

    Hopefully they don't release too many of them through the regular MG release line up since the MG line has been drastically minimized for the past few years.

    My guess would be the MG FA-78 Full Armor Gundam (Thunderbolt Sector) is what they're going to release using either the Origins or 3.0 as the base.

    We can basically take a look at what was released in HG and use that as a basis for what has a good chance at an MG release.

    But I suspect it will be (as mentioned) MG FA-78 Full Armor Gundam (Thunderbolt Sector) and others getting Premium Bandai or convention exclusive releases since they'd be variants of existing kits.

    There are far more important and more popular kits that people would want like:


    CB-0000G/C Reborns Gundam

    So suffice to say, I believe Bandai has plenty of MGs they could/should be releasing over a short lived ONA anime/manga like Thunderbolt.
