And I wish he'd kept the braces/gauntlets for the next suit for a bit of continuity. I'd rather the TDK had been in improvement/refinement of the BB design than a wholesale switch, honestly.
Partially correct, they're bracers, actually. They'd be gauntlets if the gloves were attached. (I studied medieval armor as an adjunct to a job once.)
