Actually they didn't even had the complete line of Gundam Wing kits.
Missing from the display were: Altron, Deathscythe Hell and Wing Zero. All
are features in the model catalog, however. I asked about the availibilty
of MG kits and was told "maybe in the future". I would guess that they would
wait until the original series was shown on TV for this.

I didn't see any contensts although I filled out a survey form.
