  Is this Bandai's secret plot for the "MS Classics 1/144" series? I.e.,
as the kits are released, the mecha appear in Turn-A? That means we may be
seeing a Guncannon and Gyan soon!
  About the Capule: Well, without nanotech magic they're not going to be
able to produce the parts and tech needed to make it function, right? And
if they do, once it's damaged it's all over... hey, any idea how the
Lunarian's weapons compare to the UC-era weaponry like what the Capule
might carry?

  Sounds like the Militia (Is that what the rebels are called?) might be
capturing/hijacking Moonie-Mecha soon!

  Interesting. Does it have the... uh, Sumo traditional.. er, garment?
  So, as a Turn-a does it look better or worse than the 'real' Turn-A?

  Is it a completely different style than Syd's mecha?

  Better than "Lip"!
  Or maybe it is, after all, building fences is giving "Lip Service" to
the Moonie's territory!

  "Eagle" perhaps? Spine? Wierd, I'll expect it rather means "Spines" or
"Spikes" or something like that. Perhaps a lance of some sort?
