Because they make one complicated-looking, impressive toy?

I just got a Musha ZZ Gundam toy (the 1/100 scale fully transformable one),
and while attempting to transform the sucker last night, I remembered that
I might have a plain 1/100 scale ZZ toy tucked away somewhere in my
collection, because I recognized the bizzare leg transformation mechanism
and recall having done it before. However, the toy did not come with any
instructions, and I am not about to embark on a quest to find a single toy
from the overcrowded garage.

Does anyone remember or know how was the red chest piece/cockpit hatch on
the upper torso "flip" so it'd be flat and level with the attached double
beam cannons as shown on the back of the box? Mine doesn't seem to want to
do that, as it refuses to turn further than the 90 degrees of its default
position in MS mode, but will fold in the other direction.

BTW... the toy only came with 1 Core Fighter.
