Because this kit is damn good.

The first thing I noted upon completing the 178 is that it has a lot of heft. More than the RX-78, and much more than the Zaku. I'd say the only Real Grade that might be beefier than this guy is the Z'Gok, maybe the Zephyranthes. This kit feels solid, and it looks like it, too. There's a good deal of bulk in the lower legs and feet, as well as in the torso area.
