This "size discrepancy" you noticed helds true for the 1/100 and 1/144 scale
ones too. The RX-78-2 Gundam was about 18 meters tall, and the V2 was a
couple more meters shorter due to more advanced technology that allowed the
engineers to make things smaller yet more powerful. Basically it's a way for
Bandai to maintain kits at the same price level (i.e. 500 yen for 1/144 kits)
while making more advanced kits that offers more parts.
