There is a difference big between margins and
volumes. Have you ever heard of a loss leader? A
loss leader is a product sold below or near cost
to entice purchasers to other itmes, or in the MG
case, entice purchasers to look into other MG
kits. But I highly doubt Bandai would make a kit
to be a loss leader.
