I had originally wanted to stay quiet, but then, I guess people should just
realize: what I hear just smacks of a sort of elitism. As Mark has
implied, we have to accept this commercialization, since it will allow for
us to get more stuff. Why not set up a nice friendship with your local shop
and get reserve rights, like we have here in the Philippines? I have
reserve rights in my favorite the new stuff that I'm looking for
is reserved for me for a week. It's not a bad thing.

But I agree, even if Gundam TOS never becomes a "big hit", it is still
imperative that people see where all the heck this Gundam came from. Not to
mention it would be great for the marketing push.
