You have a point there but the gelgoog wasn't That bad It was kinda good if
you ignored the gigantic hands. Same thing for the Z and ZZ, they were great
for thier time if you ignore the totally out of proportion hands, too small
for the Z and ZZ in my opinion. The Dom need only a 90's update it hardly
needed any adjustments to the MG stage and they still managed to make tiny
wrists... *sigh
