You said it right. The Action Gokins' Zeta is
sturdier, but line details and finishing is a par
below MSiA Zeta. As I've mentioned in previous post,
Zeta is the first MSiA which features more than 20
points of articulation, so some loosiness is expected.
My MSiA Zeta stand up fine, and it's even sturdier
than MSiA RX-78 Gundam recolored as Okawara's
illustration version (black/white/red); it's leg
joints are very loose compare to my original MSiA
Gundam release (blue/red/white), which is a result of
tool-wear due to mass production.

My only other peeve at MSiA Zeta is the beam rifle,
which I never really like it either shown on TV or as
model kits/action figure equipment. When my MSiA Zeta
isn't holding the hyper mega launcher, it's welding
MSiA Dom's giant bazooka, a fitting weapon for a tall
MS :)
