Hmm, can I interject? I actually like the Hygog quiet a bit... Yes there
are many flaws (like the feet), but it's got a really alien look to it. A
significant move away from the samurai look. In fact, in comparison to
Zugock-E, for the claws to be effective weapons, the arm-reach of Hygog
looks a lot more menacing.

But no question Zugock-E model kit is better than Hygog model kit.
