Those are neat. I like how all the handprints are different. I wonder whose those really are, if they belong to anybody.

Heck I'd make one of myself, only I'd need some artists to draw manga/anime-esque pictures of me. In theory, that can be arranged...

God I love these cards!

I really like that the best note they can come up with for Cyborg 009 is that he's a cyborg. Just to let you know that it's more than a name.

Cyborg 009's weight is kept down with the use of lightweight metals! Now THAT'S what I call a diet tip!

Here's the part I like best.

Someone, or maybe some group, had to CREATE those cards. Has to sit down in some meeting, decide to do them, do the research (because as far as I can tell, the Char, Amuro and Sayla cards have 'canon' personal data), make the handprints, make the signatures...

And then turn around and do the NEXT thing for the mag, whatever pack-in gimmie that was planned....month after month, for years.

Hella lot more work than just tossing in a poster or attaching a promo pic to a standard calendar blank, huh?
