The gold Sumo came out in 1/100 scale. I doubt Bandai would refuse to put
out a silver one given their propensity to recycle molds.

The 1/100 Turn A kit was at clearance price in Japan for less than 50% of
the retail price Bandai has set. Clearly, 2,000 yen for a 1/100 kit that
wasn't even label HG was too much for most people, and stores had to get rid
of them at a loss to get some cash back.
