*Makes sure he named it right*
Okay I think I'm good this time. I really wish I could see what all those prototypes looked like, but the manas that seemed to be the main point of the article (while not pictured Ive seen them) had claws that snapped shut when something push a lever inside of them, instead of just the punching hands. That snap shut claw mechanism was featured in the Mana ko design if you wanted to look it up. I understand why they chose not to use it, since the punching mechanism was tied to the movement, once they snapped shut they would pretty much jam the whole gear system if it was latched onto something big, like say the other mana it was designed to fight..
*waits for someone to point out some mistake he made*
