        In-hand combat poses (e.g. holding the machine gun and aiming at
you) is preferred... having them separate and aside does not give a sense
of scale.

        I prefer to have them in hand with the proper "owner".

        I don't seen to recall seeing that color scheme on the C-type...
but it's been a long time since I played Giren's Greed.

        I think BuyRite (www.buyrite1.com) is blowing out their copies of
GG.

        Wish I did... does Walfisch has a list of conditions that'd allow you
to see the cut-scenes?
