The G Gundam ITSELF in 1/144 is rare here (bida, eh...) - at least from what
my friend tells me. The rest are in constant supply, and maybe the Shining
Gundam might be rare as well...

I only paid a smattering of attention to the series - sorry... :)

Jeez, those were dubbed in the seventies, dude.

I do agree with you that G Wing was better than the old Voltes. But G Wing
and G Gundam were badly dubbed (for me) nonetheless. If any comparison were
to be made, I think the top quality dub should go to Lupin III and Yu-Yu
Hakushu. Those were the best and should be the bar to be compared with.

I never said that.

Personal contact with fans and other folk. C'mon, we don't even have skilled
data gathering here... How can you expect me to do this kind of research
without pay? Of course I won't be scientific about this stuff... *sheesh*

I did, you heat-axe wielding Zaku! :)

EGROUPS... I said EGROUPS - it's like onelist, only waaaaay better.

Getting ready to parry with his Shield...
