I used to keep a list of kits I have, but lost count as of
about 2 years ago. I think the most I have are the MG
Zaku IIs - bought a bunch before all the R variants came out
because I was planning to do conversions with the B-Club
conversion parts and whatnot (d'oh!). After that fiasco I
swore to never buy another B Club MG conversion kit.

I bought and still have 5 MG Dom kits. Also have quite a
few of the reissue of the 10-character "colle box". With
the MG kits I usually keep a few of them because they are
great for variations, that is until Bandai milks the mold
before you get to do your own kitbash/repaint/mods.

Same with most of my kits...

Well, I can't say the same thing - back then kits were
damn expensive and if I've held on to my horses I could
have saved some money buying them now instead.

BTW if anyone has a 1/144 scale old school GM from
Mobile Suit Gundam (not the flashy, newer variants)
and wants to get rid of it, please e-mail me privately.
