The two men have been accused of asking the contractor who built the statue and organized a related event to overcharge Bandai by 10 million yen (about US$91,000) in 2013 and pocketing the extra.

Never mind Newtypes or any goals of spacenoid liberation, for the next Gundam series I want this to be the main plight of the antagonists.

I'm down with that. Yoshiyuki now shouldn't hesitate to get into the real nitty gritty of the moral dubiousness of military business and the military industrial complex, and its societal influence.
