Rotation of the shoulder can incorporate front wing and avoid a system of hinges (which would fold this flap and be less aesthetic). This YF-30 prototype show us a beautifull shape. Bandai staff + Koji Kawamori know to excel each time and propose models more realistic, where alt mode and bot mode are a lesson design.

It's an interesting design, but I have to admit I'm not in love with the Beta Legioss style missile pod hanging out over the Battroid's head. Hopefully that's something that can be swung down onto the back between those voluminous wings sticking out back there.
It's also kind of a bummer that the more recent frontier battroids are getting larger and larger wing kibble. The original 25 wasn't too bad, and the 27's at least folded up a bit, but it seems like the 30, like the 29, just commits to having the wings dangling off like a huge cape sticking straight out backwards. :/ It's not very space-friendly!
