received my second Robot Damashii today. Gundam Aegis.




Oh, that brings back memories of 2000-2004, when I could walk into almost any retail store in the U.S. (including Walgreens) and buy a Gundam action figure for about five bucks.
those were the days. i still have a few of those action figures in storage somewhere. and my Gundam Wing models too.
I think I got my grubby little hands on every Gundam action figure that came out during that time (I don't know how many, but I've got at least 30 or 40), and even tried my hand on a few model kits, but I totally suck at that.

I know it's a long shot, but man, I wish there was a new Gundam TV series with an accompanying toy line in the U.S/North America. Such a series likely would have to skew more younger rather older (somewhere between the Power Rangers and the new Beware The Batman series), but it could get Gundam toys back in local stores, IMO.
