        That was what I was refering to. Without the skirts, the legs
actually have a great amount of motion. Oh well.

        Actually, the principle of that knee block was reused in the 79[G],
so you can't really say Bandai never used it again. The knee fairing,
especially at the back, is a royal pain.

        My mistake, what I meant to say was it is not a ball-and-socket
design. Incidentally, the foot makes the MS looks like it's wearing sandals.

        The 79[G]'s ball-head gives it a lot of mobility, and I kinda like it.

        Sadly, yeah. As someone pointed out, the Command(o) is actually
smaller than the 79[G], even though they are both at 18m. Nonetheless, I
feel the Command(o) looks better, though the 79[G] has its good points, like
the 100mm, the head joints... that's about it though. =)
