That was my gripe... the joints weren't designed in line with the classic
kit designs all the way up to the MG line, but I didn't realize they were
more in line with the PG's joint designs. The joints aren't as durable but
as long as you don't go out of your way twisting the joints to see if they
will break, they should be OK.

You meant the MSiA figures? The MSiP toys have at least nice proportions
and good details. They are made in Japan after all, unlike the ugly MSiA
figures, which are made in China by disgruntled political prisoners who
don't get paid for their labor.

>many apologies for doubting your word.

Hey man, I am glad you got to like the toy in the end.

>Which kinda makes it useless, in a sense, LOL!

Not to mention a lot of the stuff on the net were loosely based on what
was in print, but with a lot of exaggerations or embellishments thrown in
for good measure...
