Hasbro has generally been bad at articulation cuts. This is an old figure but us still the gold standard of how bad many of their joints can look. These gaps are unnecessary, they don't need to be there for "range of motion", they just exist and it looks shit. And here we are, 17 years later and they still fuck up like this frequently. I think at bets their sculptors do static statues and then cut them up- clearly evident by how a lot of the Black series joints work.
