I found these two kits digging through HLJ, but I have no idea as to how they were released, what makes them limited, or why they weren't released with the rest of the 1/144s.

Any Gundam fans out there know what I do not?

Yeah, they're old 1/144 non-grade kits that didn't get the High Grade treatment. I've seen some on eBay and the sellers are asking up $130 dollars for these kits. They look good (though only when painted), but little to no pose-ability.

I have the 1/144 Leo and to be honest, it's an ok kit. The entire kit is cast in the same color so painting is necessary if you want it to look remotely decent.

It sounds like their Non-Grade or First-Grade kits. Like the new FG AGE kits that are being released.

Damn shame that they weren't just made to the standards of other No Grades of the time.

I do wonder why Bandai would make those two in such a way, and then...never re-release them?
