hey now wait just a darn minute! I care about unit three! it's the damned
coolest gundam design ever! (At least, I think it is, and yes I have seen the Nu
Gundam). And sure it doesn't really get much airtime, but just look: Unit 1,
Unit 1 full vernian, Unit 2... What's next? Besides, you know I'm probably not
the only american fan who would want all four kits!

honestly, if they're going to release some of these kits in the US, I'm positive
that 0083 would be a great starting point. I wouldn't put it past them to have a
couple of variants available at release, at least. (Besides, variants are easier
to make than new kits, right?)

I don't think they will, not if they keep to what anime village has done so far.

like I said above, I really think they're gonna start off with 0083... with four
MG gundam kits, the ones I mentioned above. Probably unit 1 and 2 first, then
the full vernian, then unit three, if it happens. (and like I said, I REALLY
want it to happen, and I know I'm not the only one.)
