Horrible eh!!Well this is bandai's newest, and STUPIDEST, idea to cutback prices for the new 1/100 Gundam 00. No waist joint!!!
But if you though Its only 00, think again. Cherudim has no waist joint as well.
As you can see from the action images, Cherudim is shown not having waist movement.
Arios is suspected to have no waist joint, alos since the transformation doesnt need it.
It is currently unknown if Seravee and Seraphim includes a waist, unfortunately the current given pictures, doesnt show it having waist action.
It could be hinted that all 1/100 gunplas for Gundam 00 wont have a waist, so far the only units are just the gundams, we have yet to see if other MS will be developed.
This is very sad for all us gundam fans and regular modelers >:(
BANDAI, SCREW YOUR STUPID SENSELESS MONEY SAVING TACTICS!!!
