>Does Tomino or Bandai Japan own Gundam?

Sunrise owns it. Tomino is only credited as the creator, and Bandai has
license to make Gundam merchandise, mainly toys and model kits?

>I know Tomino created Gundam, but
>does he actually have control over it?

If he did, then we'd be spared G and Wing.

>I hear Bandai controls Gundam, but
>shouldn't Gundams creator have full rein over Gundam and not some money
>making company?

Hey man, it's work for hire, you don't retain any control unless you are
like Lucas who managed to finance everything without using outside money.
