I agree, they usually take the cheap way out. I know they would not do it I just
they would.

I know for sure they wont make it, but I really do believe it would sell.
with those terrible 1/55 scale valkyrie fetching big dollars on the collectibles

market, something detailed and reasonably priced would would get the nostalgia
sale...I bet even in japan.

Yes the current generation dose not have the memories, but Look at the perfect
grade gundam
I dont know what it was like when you were a kid..but I never had that much
money( $100 or so) to spend on a model.
I dont think that was marketed to the younger generation. It must have cost some
money to develop,
yet thay made it anyway. I am sure it was for nostalgic reasons too, for people
like us or
our counterparts in japan I mean.

Once again you are right, but its a shame because I belive they would sell
enough to justify
making them. I mean how many of us would buy it....I know they are not going to
but if they did?
