  Gundam Hammer? What's that? You don't mean the "Hyper Hammer" weapon do
you? Or the Hamma-Hamma? Or something freaky from G-Gundam?

  The Zak-III!? What the hell? WHY? I mean, sheesh, we already have a
reasonably decent kit out of THAT guy. Hrm. Well, I guess it's better than
alot of other designs, but I was hoping more for some cool GMs or other
1YW designs.

  Too many Twos! I wish they'd supply stuff like 0080-style machine-guns,
grenade-launchers for the rifles, maybe that desert-Zaku
missile-launcher, and some of the other strange weapons Zakus use, like
the strap-on leg-missiles!

  Ah! To show that 30% increase in thruster performance, eh? I see.
