A couple of things I left out:

MG = 1:100 scale
PG = 1:60 scale (this was mentioned in the original post)

PG has all five fingers capable of independent action, MG gives you a set
of hands and most of the fingers are fixed except for the weapon grabbing
set.

I don't think the price is really worth it, but that's just my opinion.
I think Bandai was merely riding on the craze of the PG Eva, which was of
a limited run and thus has a strong demand in the aftermarket. You can see
how these kits aren't selling at all in HK and they are dumping them on eBay
for $70 or even lower.
