Are you suggesting the public float Mafoo so he can acquire more BESPOKE ARMOR?

Best thing about the 0080 OVA is the Kaempfer: http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN900366

0083 is teh awesome. The Gundam GP03S (http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN901788) is probably my all time favorite mecha design. Actually, that and the VF-1S Roy Fokker from Macross. While we're on the subject, geek out on this: http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN916409

I'm there if someone has the 08th MS Team OVA series. Always wanted to watch that. I'll have to ask my gf if it's ok to go watch cartoons with some e-buddies.

Busted. That's why I've been avoiding a MTL get together.

I have 8th platoon on DVD I'm afraid I don't really know about the diff robot designs being more of a casual listener, is this like not knowing about goodyear welting?

I had never seen any of these shows until this past weekend when my son was watching the first season on DVD.

I was startled at how bad it was. Worse than I could have imagined.

I quite like the idea of a spartan minimal wardrobe, but I honestly have much more fun with a lot of clothing. My ideal is having dozens of dandyish suits and sports jackets too eccentric to be worn frequently, in addition to the sort of staples already mentioned.

Imo, extensive knowledge of mecha design is only key if you like to partake in extra geeky activities such as RPGs (hey, who's got a 12-sided dice?). It was only of interest to me because I used to build those plastic model kits as a kid (still have a few that I never got around to making). While the Gundam series have produced many iconic mecha designs, it has been said that the robots actually play a very small role in the storyline, i.e. that you could replace them with any other military machine and you'd still have a story.

Dude, Transformers the cartoon sucked. Seriously. Every episode basically had the Decepticons stockpiling Energon cubes. The cartoon movie was pretty good though; you might get teary eyed when Optimus dies. As for the live-action franchise? 2 words: Megan Fox.

Foo, further proof that Gundam pwns Transformers: http://www.hlj.com/odaibagundam.html
Nuff' said.

Exactly - I'd want people to notice that I am well dressed - not that I have a HUGE wardrobe (whether I have one or not). I personally do not want to have a big rotation of clothes (numerous reasons including budget/space/taste) but if done right, I don't think it hinders expression of style. However, I do not want to be known for being an Imelda.

I see: something for both boys in the family.

Thank you.
