This contradict with No.5 below. Why not a pre-assembled PG model?

pistons are fun, but they are mostly invisible. if someone want it bad enough,
s/he can customize it him/erself.

Hmm, I'd prefer SMALLER guns. "From Balance comes Strength"

Ugh, definitely not my #1, esp. for MG and HG models. Endo-skeletons should
be reserved for big expensive models.

My list would be:

1. enough flexibility/poseability to strike at least one shooting/slashing pose
     per weapon included (this means big improvements in wrists and shoulders)
     all big weapons (i.e. most rifle and all bazooka, even some sabres)
     be held with BOTH hands.
2. enough flexibility to strike walking, running, one- and two- knees kneels.
     (big improvements in ankles and hips, also need twisting and bending
3. old-style fine detail parts for antenna, V-fins etc (include the modern
     versions also for the young modellers)
4. better shield mounting on forearms AND in hands.
5. easy-to-paint multi-part heads
6. wet and dry decals, tons of decals, less stickers
7. transparent eyes, movable monoeyes, places to mount LEDs, transparent
8. articulate hands or at least more expressive fixed pose hands
9. pilots, support crews, support vehicles and cranes
10. weapon racks/display stands, also display stands for flying/space mechas
