Life-Like needs some encouragement on the Y5, Y6 front.  My hobby shop's 
employees have spoken to Life-Like at trade shows, and they are aware that 
the Y3 chassis can be used as a basis for other Y's, but for some reason 
they seem hesitant to move forward with it.
Personally, I would like to see both Life-Like and BLI (and someday a 
resurrected Rivarossi) do the later Y's, but not at the same time.  Since 
Life-Like has the chassis, they could probably do one quicker than BLI.
