I agree, if they want to end Gundam, they need to do it right, and try to
answer any questions and tie up loose ends, and end Gundam with a be-all,
end-all, set of Gundam and Zeon Mobile Suit designs. End Gundam with a big
bang, not a big, squishy, plop! Turn A could prove to be that or it could not.

I like the idea of "1/144 MGs, too. Some of Bandai's 1/144 kits rule, like
the 08th MS Team Gouf and EZ-8 and the HG System Injection Mk. II

I like MG's, but when I am paying like $25 or more at HLJ, I would much more
prefer to buy 2-3 1/144 MG's, then one huge kit.
