To Phil and the rest:

Why don't you guys recommend some of the better kits out there? Like an MG
model for instance or an HGUC kit like the Hyaku-Shiki? I mean, there are
tons of other kits to choose from that are waaaaay better than the Wing
kits... It might spur interest for UC Gundam as well...

Hehe... :) I wonder how those fans would react if they knew that a 1/60 kit
existed of the Wing...

Oh yeah, I read someone's post here about the tallgeese. Are they selling
Endless Waltz kits on Toys'R'Us. Are they marketing the Endless Waltz kits
