The same way I remade it's pilot's design in a subtle way, I've retouched Abraham-J as well. While the pilot was just for the looks, this one was for at least 2 reasons:
1- The old shoulderpads, and the way they turn into a secondary pair of arms worked like... it didn't. It relied on disposable plating, which is one heck of a waste. Also, all 4 arms look the same, so there's some streamlining.
2- Weapon holdsters are pretty much useless, considering how weaponry works with these robots. You'll get it when you see it.
In fact, this was my THIRD try at it. And yes, this means that this frame's final artwork will be redone, along with it's pilot's. Like I said before, that's development for ye.
