  No, not really. I've seen this type of thing on toys when I was little.
That's one way for them to promote Gundam Wing in the US. As long as its on
the shrink wrap and the box art is left alone, It won't bother me too much.

  At least in my opinion, I am more worried about how much censorship,
editing, cutting, etc. will they do to Gundam Wing in the US? I hope Bandai
made one of the terms for Wing to released by CN, is to leave it in its
original form, untouched.

  It deserves to be left in its original form. Some stuff in Wing will get a
bad rap because of Columbine, but Hollywood's making a movie that's a lot
worse then Wing, its a school shooting movie or a school being taken over by
students with guns. Not sure what its exactly about, because the TV
commercial didn't go into details and its been a few weeks since I've seen
it. If they can make that, there's no reason to edit or cut up Wing, at all.
