Not perfect, but glad to have it. I've always loved the F90 and I'm pleasantly surprised to finally have an amazing refresh. But I'm downright shocked at Bandai's plans to support it with as many as 26 different expansion configurations, leaning all the way in to the F90's biggest gimmick.
This is the first pack, released alongside the base kit itself, and it doesn't really match the high quality bar set by that kit. Don't expect perfect color accuracy; there are no red parts, and you'll either have to paint or use the included HG-style sticker seals. That feels a little cheap. The construction is also simplified, with more obvious seam lines and nub marks. There are also some nice details like the cloth piping and wires for the hoses, and a big sheet of water decals, but the bottom line is that it's going to take a little bit of work to really get these looking nice. I was able to get it done with just rattle cans and masking tape, it's nothing too crazy, but you don't expect it from something with the MG name in 2019.
With that said, it's pretty cool. You get two configurations: E-Type, which was previously only seen in concept sketches, features satellite-style fins and a big "jamming" gun, as well as a UFO-like back unit. Interesting, but not my favorite. The S-Type, on the other hand, is a beast. Two giant Gatling gun hands in military green, a back unit with two long-range cannons, leg missiles, and a "kickstand" to absorb recoil (which also has the added bonus of turning an already stable kit into something downright earthquake proof). It's definitely the headline act in this pack, and the one my F90 will be wearing at least until P-Type comes out.
Not sure if it's worth $40 to anyone but die-hards, but it really wouldn't be the F90 if we didn't have accessories to play dress up.
