        Those are called "Metal Clear" kits because all the parts are cast
in either "crystal" or plated form. This gives the finished kit a presence
that manifests itself especially well under showroom lighting conditions.

        Rainbow Ten already sold out on the Wing Gundam Zero Custom and
Deathscythe Hell Custom kits, and as of yesterday Legends sold out on the
W-0 C too. These kits are not likely to be reissued by Bandai in the
future since they are not even mentioned in the new Bandai catalog, which
features the PG Gundam that was released a month after these kits. One-
shots like these include the Crystal Version MG kits, the Musha Gundams,
the plated Type-100, and the very first system-injection kits for OYW MS
designs like the Gouf and Zugock in smaller scales released in the late 80s.
