        Alfred, I agree with you that some things do tend to "unfail". but what
you just jentioned are different cases entirely. Star Trek was a disaster
in scheduling time and censorship. the A-10 wasn't meant to look nice,
just bring the payload and the cannon. It's not something people of the
age/social bracket I am talking about will buy.
        I admit that the TOS gundam was a surprise hit in the rerelease..probably
because they compressed what was a very long storyline into manageable
movie bits (three of them).
        I really do hope that TUrn-A hits it off well. Gundam is simply too close
to my anime heart to be knocked off by a bad series.
        Let's just agree to disagree, ey? and get back to just plain gundam.

        And hey, guys! let's just wait and see until somebody gets their hands on
the kit. okie!
