I just did a quick count and came up with 35 kits. 1 of which is a Macross 7 VF-19kai toy that I disassembled and gave a custom paint job (that's why I consider it a model). 4 are Tekkaman Models, 2 are Patlabor models, 5 Macross kits, 4 Genesis Climber kits, and the remaining 19 are Gundams of some kind. I think that's all of 'em. There's actually about 10 more I want to order... a couple of 1/100 HG kits and a few more MGs. 23 of them are assembled.
While I think bringing Gundam models to the US is a good idea, I wish they wouldn't put them in Toy Stores like Toys R Us. Sure, when the kids start watching the show on Cartoon Network the first place they'll think to look for toys is Toys R Us, but these aren't toys! They're models! I mean, if they were going to release toys here, like the chogokin bots or whatever, those could go in a toy store but the models should be in hobby shops. I just think putting them in toy stores is asking for trouble.
