Bandai gets more money and you get less money.

I told myself I wouldn't get a Victory Gundam until January. I might have to break that promise.

I got to agree on this one... the decals this time do look a bit too flashy.  (I guess it makes targeting easier, from the enemy's perspective.)

I hope we can get a MG of this wonderful design. On an unrelated note, anybody know about how long it takes gundamstoreandmore to get a new kit in stock? Like, for instance the MG Victory? I don't want to have to wait too long to get it from an American shop.

One wonders how the species survives.  There should only be one decal "CAUTION: STAY AWAY FROM GIANT ROBO"

Instant gratification vs delayed gratification. Also, money supply.

IIRC, every legible decal that appears on a ver. Ka kit is taken from either military or commercial aircraft. I can understand the complaining about the amount of decals, even though no one's forcing you to apply any or all of them, but not the text thereof.

That's hardly the issue.  There's a HUGE difference between aircraft and a GIANT ROBO, and those warning signs are meant for repair and maintenance crew.  Thing is, only an idiot will stand under a thruster bell or near a robot's foot, so on, so forth.  In an actual scenario, civilians are NEVER allowed near military equipment, much more when they are in full operation.

Personally, I don't complain nor criticize anyone who uses decals.  I'm a minimalist, though and I only place decals when needed or if it serves as a decorative piece, because, that all decals are, DECORATIONS.  I didn't even decal my last build, concept-wise.

<-- I'll leave it as that

besides, coffee cups and ramen cups have a sign "caution contents are hot" why? because there was someone stupid enough to get burned with the contents and then sue the company for profit!, so... if you build a giant robot you'd make sure no idiot can clain "but you didn't warned me!" that's just how people works... being stupid to the max

I guess the guy didn't see the warning sign eh?

Thus, the WISDOM of standing away from military vehicles.  Even professionals have accidents, that's why they're called accidents.

Comparing ramen and coffee cups with giant robos is like comparing a lighted match with a full-blown forest fire.  Guess which one you'll survive from.

Can you still say "you didn't warn me" if you got stepped on even accidentally by a giant robo?  Will you stand in a crossfire between robots just to read the warning signs on their armor?

and since when can you read the signs on a flying combat condition plane?....

oh let me guess! you'll say my point its lost from the start and you are too wise-experienced in whatever field we discuss, your discussions always end up like that with anyone who doesn't agrees with you so save us some time and if you don't like anyone's opinion just ignore it, in any case just apply the general rule about products, you don't like it, don't get it that simple
