have you thought of applying some wax to it. I haven't tried it myself,
mainly because I am only just returning mack to modelling. Try
something like waxy lip balm, and apply that to the joints. You should
get (hopefully) smoother movement and firmer posability from that.

Claws are huge. I'm going to make a damaged RX-78-2 shield for mine to
grab onto :)

the Zugok-E is has the colours reversed cf the Zugok from TOS, ie where
the light blue was on the original, the there is dark on Type E and vice
versa. I was wondering myself what colours to paint my standard Zugok,
submarine black, or the Gion red and yellow...until I drove pass MacD's
and realised the Zion colours are also Ronald's colours, *urk*.

Finally I decided on my pattern (note not colour scheme):
distal parts of the limbs and back pack as per RF Zugok (F90) (and feet
as per Gundam MkII)
proximal parts of limbs and body as per Zugok E

it isn't assembled yet. Just waiting on some paint to dry.
