ah I would sell my soul to go back ten or eleven years with a couple hundred
bucks (of old-school US currency) in my pocket. In the meantime, I'll settle for
what I can get my hands on.. and I think I talked myself into ordering the YF-19
and 21 perfect variable kits, despite the fact that I can neither afford them
nor assemble them. Dammit, why does all this stuff have to be so COOL but so

And yes, I hold that the YF-19 is the coolest looking mecha EVER, period.
