Wing won't get a MG treatment until at least 5 or 10 years later when its
fans are old enough to have disposable income to blow on MG kits, and this
requires Wing to stand the test of time. Why else would Bandai release the
1/144 scale kits AFTER 1/100 scale kits? They obvious didn't sell enough
of the 1/100 scales and realized that they've targeted the wrong market.

Since there are so many HG Wing kits out there already, having a MG version
wouldn't impress people enough, since the perceived improvement in quality
is not that great by comparison to the OYW suits' quality leap.

Last but not least, the Wing suits are smaller than the OYW suits, making
them less than ideal for MG purposes.
