Wave 2 repackaging
Why do the Wave 2 starters have so many repackaged models? Wave 1 was made up of entirely new or "newish" models (Minimoto), even on the forums someone made a point of saying "There are no resculpts except for the basic bakemono." The Silvermoon starer has 4 models repackaged out of 5 models in the box. Why is there such a big difference in the starter box content between 1 and 2? Did you just run out of time or resources to get new models and unit cards made for Wave 2?

The important part is to make a starter set that helps new players get into the game.  We judged separately for each faction what models would be representitive of the faction while making it easier to pick up the core rules.

Theres no distinction between the 2 waves of starters, for example the Descension Starter has all new models, Cult has three new models while the Prefecture has 1 existing model and four new, Ito has three new models.
The only concern is making sure its a cohesive product.

The new models and cards will be made available to existing players who don't want duplicates.

I have a friend who raised a fair concern regarding Ikiryo from cult of yurei; Seeing as the old starter seem to be taken off this store, is it safe to assume they will be discontinued? If so, how will new players get ahold of older models like Kato or Ikiryo?

Is all the repackaging the reason why there are lots of models unavailable in the store?

The unavailability differs strongly. I think a lot of suppliers and private persons a ordering a lot of models and GCT seem to produce a lot of them.

 Click through the store every 2 or 3 days and you will notice how fast the "add to cart button" disappears/appears
