  We don't forget... the fact is that CCA models are better compared to
the slightly larger but effectively similar F-91 kits, since they're so
BIG! Modern GW kits, etc, are proportionately smaller robots, it wouldn't
be practical to give them articulated hands.
  But the most important reason I believe is the fact that the articulated
hands were easily damaged, easily broken, and became loose fast.
Personally, I much prefer the MG method of supplying one open, one fist
and one gun-grip poseable hand! (They actually did this on the Gundam
Hydra and Gundam Griepe G-Unit kits too, one of the reasons that makes
them so worth getting!)
