They are not scaled, but are of approximately the same size as the MicroGundams
and Yutaka/Unifive 0083 figures.

>Someone told me they were 1/220, but I was also told they had no real scale.

The box does not designate any scale, but it is roughly 1/220 in scale after
you put one together and measure it against the stats from the box.

>Also, will there be future releases in this series? Will Z Gundam be covered?

I don't see why not - there's been 3 series already - or 2 series currently
consisting of 3 waves, with a 4th wave on the way (each series consisting of
2 waves). Zeta Gundam came out as #12 in Wave 1 of Series II (or,
chronologically, wave 3 - each wave has 5 figures). Hyaky Shiki is #13 in the
same wave. They also have the two Mk-IIs (Titans and AEUG versions) from
Series 1, Wave 2 - #7 and #8.

Are these the 0083 ones made by Yutaka/Unifive or are you talking about
something else? The 0083 ones have very limited articulation and posability,
they are only good as display or gaming pieces.

>I have also seen the Banpresto Gundams, ans was wondering what scale they

They've made too many Gundam figures, you'd have to be more precise...
