Here comes the poor man’s version of the Yamato Kai! GSC strip off the full Armament from her trying to make her more affordable. But man, 10,926 yen is still a lot of $$$ to the poor man like me. I guess I need a poorer man’s version. ='(

I wish they would make a poor man’s version of their Shimakaze too.
