Let’s play six degrees of Gundam! How many degrees of separation does Elvis Presley have from Gundam? One! Elvis Presley’s debut album art looked like this, which The Clash emulated for their album London Calling, which Chop Shop emulated for this Gundam shirt.
I really like this series of photos that shows us what all those Star Wars toys are up to after hours. Sure, keeping them in their boxes might preserve their resell value, but hey, toys need to have a life too!
