I like 1/100's and 1/144's. I've noticed that some 1/100's require more work
then 1/144's and vice versa. Its strange in a way. A mini MG line of 1/144's
would make me really excited. 1/100's are great, but a 1/144th line of kits
that are as poseable and detailed as 1/100's and the new Garaski kits would
rule! Just think, we'd get great kits, at a decent price, that require little
work(hopefully). I'd buy them all. Bandai should make all MS in one scale. I
hate when like Bandai makes 4 MS from a series in 1/100, but they make all the
mecha from the series in 1/144. Sometimes the 1/144 kits are good, and
sometimes they are bad. Bandai needs some type of kit that is always a
standad, meaning it doesn't faze out. I've notice HG doesn't really mean
anything anymore. HG usually means now, no System Injection, is mostly molded
in the correct colors. HG is basically Bandais stanard now. Everythings HG
this, HG that. I mean, HG is no longer a special feature. When I first built
my HG MK.II, I was knocked over by how well it was made and it require almost
no painting.

Rant over, sorry for ranting
