I was in the BAPE store in NYC recently. They had some cool clothes, but it was all pretty expensive.

I know this is going to sound stupid, but these would be do much more appealing IMO, without the BAPE logo on them.

A discreet sticker on the box window would be just fine. Just my two-pence...

Aw, come on, what? Again? Sure, G1 OP is one of the best TF ever, but wont the mold suffer some sort of degradation after the 20th or 30th reisue?

And what's up with that RED camo? Is it to hide in Starwberryslurpeeland?

**** begin to be riddiculous. :BANG_HEAD:

Not my area of expertise, but this is the one mold that HasTak have had no problems retooling/recasting over the years. It's just too iconic :D
