MG GUNDAM F-91 Ver. 2.0

Finally received the new F91 in the mail a few days ago. While a bit small in the MG scale line, this kit has a lot of neat features packed in . I like that Bandai two sets of heads, one transformable and the other parts-former. While the kit looks great visually, I did have some problems with a few parts not fitting together closely, and later needed to glue them together. The kit does have a nice gold trim that fits into the inner frame of the Gundam. The stand provided can be used in conjunction with LEDs for a great lighting effect (although it doesn’t light up the eyes). Overall, not as drastic of a change as the MG Freedom 2.0 was, but still some nice changes made nonetheless. Kit review and build details following the image gallery. Enjoy!

Kit Review:
PROS:

  • Bandai provided two sets of heads (transformable and part-former)!
  • Good amount of weapon choices
  • Gold trim is subtle but looks great
  • Nice gimmicks; heat radiation fins, movable beam shield and VSBR Guns
  • “Old School” Gundam look
  • Lots of details to panel line

CONS:

  • Some pieces didn’t fit closely together and needed to be glued
  • Stand provided looks great with lighting, but has no articulation
  • Owners of the 1.0 may not see drastic improvements visually with this kit
  • Articulation in legs and feet (back of the feet) is a bit lacking
  • Back skirt tends to fall off a lot

  • Mr. Color Gundam color spray, SG 14 Light Blue
  • Tamiya TS 39, Mica Red
  • Tamiya AS 20 Insignia White
  • Tamiya TS 34, Camel yellow
  • Tamiya TS 38, gun metal
