Since there appears to be no mention of price or release date, my guess is
that these two chrome kits will be another convention exclusive or some
kind of mail-in sweepstakes prize (remember the camouflaged HG Zaku II kit?).

They are meant to be display pieces, what would you do with a chrome model?
Paint it?!

Hmm... that line sounds awfully familiar...

For 700 yen I guess you can't expect much. Too bad the Zugock didn't get a
MG treatment instead.

I won't hold my breath for a MG 100-Shiki, now that it's being released as a
HGUC kit. The HGUC line is basically MG designs that had to be cheapened
because of market potential and economic reasons. If a design can't be
easily retooled and repackaged as a bunch of new kits, and is not a Gundam,
then off to the HGUC line it goes.
