Because Full Vernier didn't work?

I know the design's spoken name is "Full Vernian" but what is the deal with the crisscrossing of "Vernier" and "Burner"?

Oddly enough it was written

Oddly enough it was written as "Full Burnern" way back in the manuals for the Perfect Grade kit. It's weird, the GP01 never got another kit in the 10 years since then so it's easy to see why that weird romanization was forgotten.

Round Burnern Vifam

At least they're staying consistent.

Looking towards the future

The old 1/144 GP-03 Orchis was gigantic and needed some improvements. Do you think they'll do a new Real Grade version? I mean if nothing else, they'll do a GP-03 Stamen, which I'll still get because of the awesome extending arms, but I'd kill for a new Orchis and a Neue Ziel for it to fight.

What was wrong?

(Looking up at his shelf at the behemoth Orbital Defense Platform GP-03)

...What was wrong with it? Other than no articulation to the mounting arm for the cannon and being just a amazingly/massive display piece.

...Although a Real Grade Stamen does sound kind of kickass, I think we're looking at a limited one-to-three Suits per series deal here with the line, either based on popularity or just what is easier in recolored kits or expansion models:

RX-78 Gundam and Zaku II (Char/regular)
Zeta and Mk2 Gundam (AEUG/Titans)
Strike, Freedom, and Justice
Destiny...
and now the GP-01 in two flavors.
