The Huckebein problem

Just going to translate this
2006: When Divine Wars the TV series was confirmed, someone posted the following on 2channel
-The Huckebein's won't be in the show.
-This is because Sotsu/Sunrise are complaining that they resemble Gundams too much.
-Terada tried to talk to them, but Sunrise threatened him saying that if they want Huckebeins in the show they won't have Gundams in SRW ever again
-Sunrise said they're fine with them in the games, but just don't want them on TV
-The staff are very troubled over this and are wondering what to do with Bullet
This same person also suggested that the two Astranagants would show up in the first episode.
After the first episode aired, there was another post saying that they paid Sunrise (as in literally forked out cash) to get permission to have a Huckebein show up in one of Rai's flashbacks. This really happened in episode 3.
OGs PV- Versions allowed to be displayed in shops had all Huckebeins removed.
Kits- One month before the Mk II and Boxer went on sale, it was announced that they would be a limited release (first print only, no further batches), and that all other Huckebein kits on sale would also be out of production.
Usually when something this big happens there will of course be an announcement, but there wasn't at all. Also left on Supalog (2007) was a message about "the thing that everything is asking about", saying that they at the time could not say anything at all, suggesting pressure from an outside source.
However the Huckebeins were in OG Gaiden fine and the DW DVDs had their plans and such, and it was assumed that the problem was resolved.
(More to come)
