Gundam toys in general -- I've always preferred the HCM, Micro Gundam, MS In
Pocket and MS In Action lines to models and now I'll be able to get them for
reasonable prices.

And, as I noted in earlier posts, we'll eventually see the Gundam logo on toys
that have nothing to do with Gundam.

Ditto. And I'm a patient man -- I've already waited 15 years to see the First
Gundam series and how it differs from the movie trilogy, so what's a few years

It's already happened, at least among clueless reviewers. There was the guy who
reviewed the Gundam 0079 comics who said that it was "set in the After Colony
0079, 116 years before the events Gundam Wing"...

Hearing parent groups complain that, bad as Gundam Wing was with regard to
violence, First Gundam is even worse.

Seeing all of the My Love Shrine to Garma sites pop up on the Web.

Comparisons of Gundam Wing and First Gundam that note that FG not only rips off
GW but also Star Wars.

A Space Colony play set with a two-foot long cylinder that opens up to show a
miniature cityscape, into which you can plug your itty-bitty MS and spaceships.
