I'm also a little curious to see what they were talking about with the asymmetrical knee back sculpt as I don't see it in the prototype.

ABS may avoid internal-cause yellowing depending on the care taken with the additives when mixing the material. Things like plasticizers and dyes and
I thought they parodied The Dark Knight and the Joker.
