GK is a garage kit, right? Geez, I wouldn't mind a Katoki-ized RX-178 MG kit.
That'd be nice. (of course, so would a gelgoog marine, a Dom Tropen, unit

speaking of Dom Tropens, were they enhanced Rick Doms? And what's the difference
between a Rick Dom and a Dom? (or is it just a different name?)

I'd also like to say - in that lighting, the Turn-A doesn't look all that bad.
If you focus on the "moustache" then it sorta does, but overall I don't think
its too bad of a design.

You know, if they've already built the hand, why not just do a 1/1 scale gundam?
Use metal parts, throw in a reactor and some advanced mechanics... you guys see
where I'm getting with this? (gawd, I never imagined it was THAT big, but now
that I see it in comparison, well...)
