This could also be linked in to their prefernce for having black colored,
golden colored, silver colored, translucent, and whatever else colored
versions of various Diecast toys/action figures. I haven't actually
understood it mydelf, but it seems that it is a part of their merchandising
formula. Bandai is just lucky that there IS a Char's gundam in existence
already. I wouldn't be surprised if it had a few goodies, like having zeon
weapons to go with it, but there's an also equal chance that it will just
be a recolored kit.
