Actually, I find them to be blueprints for whole generations of
the chest vents and the headspikes...and the really big stomping feet.

I had to get past bomb sniffers fast so I wouldn't be hassled into opening
my kit boxes, so I tld them that the boxes conatined 4WD racers...

Yeah, I couldn't believe my Zeta was mistaken for a Wing...I mean, damn! as
for hte Nu, no comment...

An what's wrong with being a G and WIng nut? I AM a gundajm nut...I love
all the series, just to see how they can stretch the basic conept in
different ways.
