Hey, diff' strokes for everyone... For me though, I like the 08th MS Team
kits more than the 0080 kits (the blasphemy!) partly because the 0080 Zion
designs do not really appeal to me, especially the Arnhold Zaku FZ. Sure,
you got the little german mask with that guy, but in the end, you have a
Zaku kit that is rather bulky that somewhat tarnishes the name of Zaku
slightly. And of course, there is the slight matter of the Gouf, which I
find to be the best kit in the 08th MS Team, and probably one of the better
1/144th Scale kit that Bandai has done.

Maybe, but they kinda lack something... Dunno, they're all too bulky or
lithe for me...
