<< Beats me. The HGUC kits seem designed for extremely easy assembly, and as

 more toylike in recent releases (e.g. the RICK-DIAS's vulcan phalanx) >>

  uh, the HGUC GP01 *does* have seperate hilts that push into it's back pack,
just like in the anime, just not clear blades for the hilts, instead it comes
with a one piece white blade and hilt. It's like, Duh, all Bandai had to do
is make clear blades for the hilts. Besides, it's chin piece was *MUCH*
smaller then the hilts where. It was as small as any other's 1/144 chin is.
I built the old HG Zeta Gundam and the HGUC's have just as small parts as it
had. The HGUC GP01 has several itsy, bitsy parts in fact.
