Welll to be fair, most of Motsumoto's stuff dates from the 70's, and in general theres not a huge following for any show from that era.

I wouldn't say its completely dead though. Theres still a good number of anime modellers and SF spacecraft fans who love the hardware from the show.
Yeah, I'd say the fact that Matsumoto's stuff is from the 70s hurts his cache in the West, especially since 70s anime aged a lot worse than a good amount of western animation in terms of aesthetics and visual quality. And let's not forget that he hasn't made anything recently and when he did, it was kinda shit.
