  I was hoping its legs could manage more of a 'crouch' look, but
apparently without movable skirt armors it's just not possible. I was
expecting maybe some Gasaraki or WGEWFA-styled swap-out torso-hip parts
for that pose!

  Any chance Bandai will do a "Zak-R" on this guy and sell a version with
0083-styled Dom-Tropen legs/feet?

  Hmmmrrrmmm... Poseability looks decent, though the colors seem kinda
garish for some reason. I'm impressed at the Gundam's sole detail.

  For the price, I really wonder... and the box looks just like the
original (Nostalgia)? I wouldn't be surprised if it's basically just the
original kit with reshaped parts (wierd!).
