  My understanding is that TRU's in Japan _already_ carry Gundam model
kits and have done so for at least a decade, so it seems to me that
selling through TRU in America is the smart, simple choice for Bandai.

  On the other hand, TRU's already carry lots of airplane and other
domestic model kits, so why should Bandai cut stock in independant
model-shops just for TRU?
