Gundam Model Kit Quality

I have notice that quality of gunpla is improving all the time if its a Master grade or a HGUC model kits. However, if it is a non grade model kit it gets the boots. I'm going to use the different versions Gundam Exia model kits as an example in what I mean.


Below is the 1/60 scale version of this model kit. After looking at the detail of this model kit, it has the size of a Perfect grade but the quality of a Master grade. When I see a 1/60 scale model I expect for it to be perfect but this is just great.

Below is the 1/100 scale version of this model kit. It has the size of a Master grade but the quality of a HGUC model kit. For those that don't know, HGUC are High grade model kits based from the Universial Century that have improved over time to have the quality and detail of a Master grade. This model is good for its size but it have been a Master grade.

This is High grade 1/144 scale version of this model kit. This happens to be the only Exia kit to have a grade and it's ok at most.

This is the 1/144 scale version of this model kit. This happens to be the second cheapest model I have seen(the first is the G Gundam 1/144 scale, thats is really, really, really cheap model kit).

I wish that Bandai would give their non-grade model kits some love because if the customers are not happy, then they are not going to make money.
