That sounds like your usual peel-off sticker. As far as I know, Bandai models only have three kinds of decals: standard peel-off (you just have to peel it off and stick it), water-slide (needs water), and dry-transfer (where you just have cut and rub the decal on the spot you want).

If somebody out there knows more, your post here will be very much welcomed. :)

I thought peel offs were green backed? I havent got any recent MGs yet so idk if they changed it

But from descriptions this sound most likely, rough transfers are ruled out since they're more distinct

Also Bandai does not do waterslides as often as they used to

An easy way to confirm this is angle the page of decals to a good light source and see if you can make out any borders around the markings

There are borders around the markings. They were left behind when the decals detached after immersion.
They're definitely not peel offs because that model kit had a seperate sheet of peel offs.
From what I read, dry transfers don't have borders, so that sheet shouldn't be it.

Iíve found the answer :D (after checking on my HG EVA-01 decals). That light blue sheet is a water-slide. How do you apply it?: cut the decals -> soak it on hot water-> wait a few seconds -> take it out -> the decal around the border will slides-off -> put it on the surface of your kit while itís hot (be careful not to tear it apart) -> wait until it dries up and you got yourself a nicely-applied decals. :) I have tried it myself just now.

Hot water? I used cool water. Maybe that's why it didn't work.
How hot is hot enough? I'll try with my shower heater then move on to a boiler if neccessary.

Yep, it must be hot water.

It doesn't have to be boiling water. Water from shower-heater is enough. ;)

I'm sorry to report that did not work. While hot water made the decal detach faster, it still pulled a layer of the backing along with it and still had no adhesiveness after the backing was forcibly removed.
As I said before these are unlike the water slide decal I've seen before. Those would fall apart if I rubbed them between my fingers. These are thick, I rubbed them to remove the backing and the decal itself was intact.
Any other suggestions?

Amm, has anyone bought the decals for HG Qan[T]'s Full Saber? It ain't exactly decals, I don't even know how to call it. But it's a peel-off that I thought was a water slide. I actually went and soak it in water. It attached itself to its backing paper. I effed up, LOL!

It doesn't have a border, you have to cut it manually. According to the magazine, it shows that you actually need water? Maybe to make it more adhesive? Not sure though since it's in Japanese.

Jimmy C 2013-01-05 08:03

I just tried that! It's a peel off like you said, I don't believe this!
Well, I can finish my model now, thanks!

Glad I was able to help. I can't believe that was that though XD

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2013-01-05 08:05

So, it's a peel-off after all, huh. Should've stay on my first guess ^^.

Should've labeled it as "unfriendly peel-off" or "water-slide wannabe". Whatever soothes your taste XD

Yeah. It makes me curious just what Bandai kit Jimmy is working on. I suppose it's not from Evangelion or Patlabor line. Could be from Macross line.

DSLRs are SO much fun to play with^^

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2013-01-05 11:12

That looks quite dramatic ^^.

Why is it that Wing Gundam Zero (TV) never gets anything? O_o

maknaedik 2013-01-05 11:22



Hey Bandai, such a tease XD

What the hell do you mean? WZ TV got made into HG 1/100 and HG 1/60 (not to mention action figure like RD and others). Not every MS got made into HG 1/60 model, you know. And donít even ask us about the MG. All of us donít know what Bandai will make in the future.

With the Wing Gundam (TV) that came out in 2010, I was wondering why such a delay in taking the next obvious release...as well as an updated Endless Waltz movie version.

Obvious? LOL! What explanation do you need to shut? I think even if Bandai says, "a comet will hit earth if we release an MG Exia R2" won't be enough. Yes, you're that selfish, HAHA!

MG Strike Rouge Remastered and MG Sazabi ver Ka please :)

We had enough of Seed and UC releases in 2012. Give some 00, Age, Wing, and maybe even X and G a chance.
