Nicholas After that I thought it was kind of
strange that when I remember Outlaw Star did not sell
well in the Stores were I live thats Why Craptoon
Network put it on there timeslot to help out Bandai I
wonder sometimes why Being Pick on for one thing I
wonder why Bandai would sell Moble Suit Gundam on DVD
in Dub put it on Cartoon network just to sell some
Kits its a good Idea for one thing your really smart
now and one thing who cares its not like everyone will
follow that Plus there still selling the Gundam X kits
were I live in VideoGame Stores Yeah its true its
good thing if you think Im crazy go to the mall see if
they Selling Gundam X kits and if you see them make
sure that you know what Gundam X Model from,Gundam
Leopard,Gundam Double X,Gundam X Divider,Gundam
Airmaster.1/144 to 1/100 if you seen those at the mall
In Texas then you all know what they are please tell
if you see them at mall if they don't have them then
If you think there From Gundam Wing then you Idoit
