I was so fucking thrilled for a new Galbaldy when this was announced, but after building it, it's just kinda eh. It's alright looking, and doesn't pose very well. The ankles are particularly bad. Pretty big yo-yo of hype vs. reality for me.>>8333798>>8333832
Yes, I have this issue in varying degrees on all kits that use that ab crunch design. I see what they were going for, but it simply wasn't well thought out. A mere month later they debuted an ingenious new joint design in the Origin GM Guard Custom--it's extremely stable by comparison, and has an absurd range of ab crunch motion, which is something Gunpla have struggled with for a long time. I was hoping this would become the standard after this, but pretty much all HGs I've built after that point have used other, not-as-good designs.
