Dude, I've been building Star Trek and Star Wars models ever since I was
old enough to know that you don't eat the glue! :) Granted, those were
movies and TV series, but I hardly think kids *don't* model when they're

Anyway, I think that the domestic release of these models will be to
distributors that would normally carry such models anyway, and perhaps
to a few extra beyond that. Remember in the mid-80s when someone bought
the Robotech liscence and a bunch of old Bandai models, and released
them? It was a successful (if short-lived) venture on their part. Heck,
my *first* mecha model was "Condar" from Robotech (in reality, some
meach from Dougram...)!
