You can actually fit the controls into the robot's hands when in throne mode. I found the most effective thing to do is separate the elephant head from the body, get the body seated, move the control levers into position, then reconnect the elephant head.

I tend to stereotype Bandai of America as skimping in paint apps, but I suspect Bandai Japan may've pulled something similar here. It looks like the design on the back legs was supposed to continue onto the front legs/arms. (I also suspect the intended design might have not painted the haunch area; maybe the fringe detail below instead?)

Thanks for the info. I missed the fact that there are recesses under each hand.

I still think these look

I still think these look ridiculous but it has a certain charm to it that I find really funny. Plus its a dude sitting in a chair on a robot wearing a hat. The nininger stuff kind of reminds me of the older Mugenbine toys with how everything seems to be slapped together.

Since chinese people generally have nicknames that double part of your surname, a lot of my family members call me ningning. Everytime I see the word ninninger, I think the series is just trolling me.
