Don't forget, the suits at Bandai always have the final say on what they
think it should look like. Coming from a design background, I know. The
job of a designer is to produce a design suitable for the client, and in
this case, the client is Bandai, not us :(
For all we know, K probably wanted to do it a certain way and was met with
the "We would prefer" even though they have no design background. I have
done stuff that I will not include in my collection eventhough it was go
work, is just that the good design was met with the "voice" and now looks
like crap IMHO.
You know, I now kinda feel for K... poor guy.
