But does this apply to Japanese fans as well ? Gundam is possibly the only
anime (that I know of) to have spawned an anime based on the models alone (the
Plamo Wars series, which, at least to start off with was based almost entirely
around Gundam models). I remember Gundam being a kind of cultural icon in
Thailand for the last 20 years or so....
