I'd have an idea (i don't know if it is really good). In this shirt we could
put a kind of calendar; on one side there is the list of the years from 1979
till now, on the other side we could put the Gundam series that have been
done in those years (just the names of these series). It would be beautiful
to put the logos of the various series but, as you have said, there are
copyrights and trademarks to respect. On the back of the shirt there could
be a writing like "We are waiting for the future" (future's Gundam series).
But it is a too simple idea. Excuse me, anyway. But the idea of Gundam's and
pilots' heads reminds me too much medals or coins. If you want the heads of
Gundam ad pilots you'd better make medals, but it seems me too much
