But today, when I walked into the shop to pick up my Kakizaki DYRL 1A, I had trouble in spotting it out. It is buried among the boxes of Max 1S, Max 1A(TV), Max 1A(Movie) and Kakizaki (TV) and I need to read the text on the box to confirm if I am looking at the right model.
Back in the old days of 1/48, or even for the VF-0/SV-51/YF series, I can find what I want right away from the box cover.
Is it only me or people have the same problem as I do?
Moreover, I like the old boxarts (most of them) better. The classy black Focker box; the flaming red 1S; the azure sky for Hikaru 1J; the stary space of M&M... The striped color cover of the VF-0/SV/YF look premium to me too.
The new Yamato boxes look generic mecha product package to me...
