Regardless of whether you're a fan of giant robots/mecha or not, it's inconceivable that you haven't heard of Gundam (ガンダム) before. And if you're a scale modeller, you would almost certainly have come across a Bandai Gundam kit in your local hobby store. Truth be told though, I was never a fan of this anime series. Sure I had watched the original Mobile Suit Gundam series (first shown in 1979).
