        With a blank background, it is easy to assume that things are not
scaled in relation to each other. I think it'll be cool to have

1 combat stance pose with the weapon, and
2 standard loadout (such as the horizontal bazooka that mounts on
        top of the Gundam's butt, or how the Bazooka is mounted on the
        shield of Ridden's 06R-2 Zaku.

        Just make sure they are not sending you a "store display copy"
that's been opened or have a cracked case...

        Cool! Got any URL where such coverter can be downloaded?

        Once you convert it to AVI it'll be a cake converting it to QuickTime.

        BTW... are you still working at MacAddict? Why aren't you doing the
doodles anymore?
