I will happily buy OYW and MSV MG kits as long as Bandai keeps pumping
them out. CCA and 0080 have very limited appeal in the sense that
they are not seen by the biggest possible audience like the TV series.
As a result, kits based on them will not sell as well as kits based on the
original TV series. This is evident from the relative lack of selection
in CCA and 0080 kits (where are the ships and arctic GM/GM Sniper II/
GunCannon IIs?). The fact that 3 0083 Gundams became MG kits really
surprised me, but they were probably supported by strong GK sales in the
past.
