I for one am not that impressed with the 0080 kits. The MS-06FZ Zaku I
built had the worst quality plastic Bandai ever put in a Gundam kit, and
I've been building them since the original series. If you think the
Crystal Version MG kits' plastic quality was bad, then you haven't built
this one yet. The Hygog kit also felt crude and unrefined as far as joints
go. It has trouble balancing (thus you usually see it standing on all fours
in the kit photos) and the joints are very loose. The Zugock-E was better
by comparison, but joint-wise lacked range and flexibility.
