"Mobile Suit Gundam" Makes a Cameo in "True Detective" Season 2

Nothing says "family bonding" like an HGUC series MSN-03 Jagd Doga

 

Sharp-eyed Gundam fans have spotted a little Easter egg in the 2nd episode of the 2nd season of HBO's True Detective: Colin Farrell's character, Detective Ray Velcoro, purchases a Gunpla model kit to build with his estranged son.

 

 

The Gunpla in question is the MSN-03 Jagd Doga from the HGUC series released in 2007, which is a model of the mobile suit piloted by Gyunei Guss in the 1988 theatrical film, Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counter Attack. I wonder if this particular Gunpla model has some thematic significance within the show?
