There were plenty of G1's with no elbows. Some had shoulders, some had elbows, some even had neither, and only the best of the best had both.
And knees, you could probably count on your hands and feet how many had knees, compared to the dozens upon dozens that had no leg movement at all. Having hip movement, that puts this above most G1's in leg abilities.
I'm not saying this is a great figure by modern standards (though I did quite like the legends size version), but if you're going to compare it to G1, be real, compare it to G1 as a whole, not rose colored nostalgia of the best of the best G1. If this had come out in G1, it would have been considered highly articulated.
(I love G1, btw, lest anyone think I'm hatin on it, but let's be honest, G1 was about anything but articulation)
