I think it might be interesting to see Tomino do a "GARZEY'S
WING" i.e a Gundam story with no MS. It'd give us a look at
Newtypes and their abilities when they don't have to go out and
nuke tons of enemy mobile suits and have mental breakdowns. But
then it could turn out to be rehash of X!(the Clamp one not the
Gundam series) :) Kill 'em all Tomino strikes again!

I bet Bandai would prefer a story about a wandering MS collector
who does battle with other MS collectors! Gotta catch em all! :)
Gundam Pocket! "Zeta I chose you!" Watch out for Team Zeon!
