It's a popularity contest at this point. They do all the 1YW stuff
and Zeta and then pop out 3 0083 kits. Who is to rule out Wing getting
a MG, with its rabid following?

Well, I think the MG versions serve as one of the strongest factors
for future PG kits. If the rumor about the MG Zeta losing money is
true, how anxious do you think Bandai is going to be to bring out a
PG Zeta??

  Gundam itself leads to at least several upgrade kits (for
>RX-78-1 and RX-78-3) and Zaku is more or less endless (the R1-A kits
and the

Might current thinking is Bandai's next grade of models will deal
with the exterior of the kits, trying to cast them with profesional
looking surfaces and realistic weathering in the casting process. A
new step in system injection, if you will...
