I wouldn't say Gog is "the same" as other HGUC's. I think Gogg is
below HGUC average... The good news is it's easy to install an LED (if
you find a large diameter LED). I am even thinking of making LED monoeye
movable. A first for me so not sure how hard it will be.

The biggest problem of this Gogg. Do you have any suggestion that can
lengthen the arms and maintain the possability?

Thanks for the tip.

Well Hygog is a very different design. Not sure about the prototype you
talking about there. I think the MSIA Gog has excellent proportions and
was very very disappointed the model has worse proportions than a toy. I
am collecting pictures of the MSIA and is planning my first major
modification in its image: redo the shoulder armor and lengthen the arms.
I think these 2 changes will fix it up pretty good. But I still not very
sure how to do either.
BTW, has anyone try to thermo-bend the Tamiya pla-plate? Also was there a
HJ/DH issue for redoing HGUC Gog?

Let's see... Guncannon: thumb's up, Gyan: marginally up, Zaku III:
marginally up, Type 100: up, Quebeley: up, Guntank: marginally up, Zugock:
up?, Gogg: down. I think it's been pretty good.

Agreed, looking at this guy gave me the urge to get another Hygog and do
some serious mod on it.
