Exactly, but at least we know a bit more from this kit
than just seeing the photos from HJ :) I was quite
amazed that the knee can bend almost like human being
(!), which is a plus for any models but the retcon

RX-78 looks more and more like the 1st MS with
moveable frame (doh!), and makes Gundam mkII looks
silly :)
