I don't think anyone is advocating that they don't make any more Gundam, its just that maybe we all need a breather. Look at the STAR TREK franchise, I definitely feel that it needs some R&R for a while. Since TNG premiered, there has been a Trek show on the air for the last 13 years.

I think a break of a year or two would be good for the franchise. In the meantime, Bandai can get busy on all those HGUC, FG, MG and PG kits they need to put out. I don't think Big "B" is going to be hurting for money.
