Thanx for the honest info, Eddie. I never really wanted to get a 0080
kits because...well, the designs are mediocre.I realise they have to
do the whole retro thing, but 0083 did better. The Kampfer and NT-1
rise above a little, but the kit versions of them dissapointed me. I
don't need a dozen Gundam variants in one series to be happy, but I
do need a more interesting designs than 0080 had to offer.
