The toy was obviously targeted to collectors/fans who saw the original
series as a kid. If they were going after the Wing crowd, then they
would have used MG or PG style detailing and probably done away with the
Gundam Hammer and beam javelin. Besides, at 4,500 yen, few parents in
their right mind would buy it as a toy for their toddlers (not to mention
way too many small parts). Read the box again: FOR AGES 15 AND UP.
