For sure, the GM-command model is about half a head shorter than 08MST GM.

Practical but not elegant.

Well, depends on how you look at it. As a model, it has the best shield
in terms of looks and poseability. But if you think about it, carrying
the shield by hand is pretty stupid. Imagine taking a brow from a Zak's
hear hawk, your wrist is gonna hurt like hell (ok so a MS doesn't feel,
but the hand can just fall off). All the real life fighters carry their
shields on the forearm, but somehow doesn't translate very well to MS
