They have some good old kits. I like the owner too, since he is a friend.
they also have VCD's of the TOS Gundam series, I think.

That's actually a problem with a lot of kits, which is the reason why the
1/144 EW kits came with option parts to make them able to do special poses
from the cartoon. Same with the HGUC the sword hand of the
Gyan, and the hands of the Gunccannon.

I saw the rifle. VERY DISAPPOINTING. I would rather steal the BFG off my
Academy S-gundam than buy that.

That is true. I think the color scheme was designed with that in mind.
