Fact is, they like being able to retool their molds for new kits; which so far has worked great for the RG Evas, because most of them are identical save for the chest and head, otherwise we most certainly would not have gotten the 03 that they teased.
That being said - Mark.06 need a completely new armor mold. Unit 05 needs a completely new armor mold, is comically huge and needs an entirely new frame for the limbs. Eva 13 needs an entirely new everything, if it wasn't kind of a big deal, we most certainly would not be getting that, either.
Same applies to the TV Versions; they have completely different proportions, so exactly none of the frame is reusable; I think you can answer the question of how likely it is that we'll be getting those by yourself.
bandai works with public appeal....Japanese public appeal....they are completely out of touch with international consumers, i was personally in the room with their damashi representative when he came to brazil some 9 or 10 years ago, he was surprised at the models/figures we wanted,(we also took sugestion from latin america countries) because they werent popular in Japan.
so lets say for whatever reason unit 5 is huge in europe, la,and usa.....doesnt matter, Japan doesnt like it, no tool. if they made that frankstein or unit 08 beta, they can make unit 5,since they made beta my guess is, the unit will be in the movie longer than we though, or it was a demand from khara.
