    1. It's basically an entirely new model. They've upgraded most of the parts of the original RG Freedom Gundam.

    2. Fascinating... most of the parts? Does that mean even with ERS, this version of the Freedom will hold up against time just a bit better than the original?

    3. From a review I've seen online, that appears to be the case, although there's apparently still weaknesses like the waist. This is essentially an RG Freedom 1.5: enough new parts to make it look and feel different from the old RG Freedom, but reusing enough parts to remind people that this is based off the RG Freedom.
