A writer had previously written an article stating that Bandai was going to release the Soul of Chogokin GX049 God Mars (Released by Bandai in 2008). But at the time, due to the absence of an official announcement, readers posted the article on a Hong Kong toy forum and ridicule the writer. Afterwards, the news proved to be true..

territory's economy is heavily dependent on gambling and tourism, but also
