The P-Bandai MG kit that managed to surprise me
Release Date: August 2019
Estimated price: MYR RM 268.00 ( USD $ 65.05 / EUR € 54.60)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
Even though I’m a fan of P-Bandai’s work on the P-Bandai’s MG A to Z F90 Project, funnily, I haven’t managed to secure one for myself for a long time. Honestly, I do find it quite funny, considering that this is a P-Bandai kit.
I thought the premium asking price for the MG F90 would put people off from getting one, but it seems that isn’t the case here. I guess there is alot of builders out there that wouldn’t mind getting that obscure kit, huh?
Anyways, enough of that. The more important thing is that I managed to secure one in the end.
Although, I must admit that when I saw the box, I was a bit confused. Because, unlike all the other P-Bandai MG kit boxes that I’ve seen, the MG F90’s packaging looked like your standard retail release box packaging.
Well, that is because it comes with an illustrated boxart, and it even had all the information on the kit that you’ll need to make an informed decision present here on the box’s side section, just like your standard retail MG kit. The only thing that made me realize that this is a P-Bandai kit was the bonkers price attached to it.
Admittedly since the boxart and the packaging look similar to any standard retail box packaging on sale, that may confuse some of the newbies when they compare this to the other retail kits.
Because it doesn’t make sense for a kit that comes in this kind of packaging would be priced at RM 268.00 (USD 65.05/EUR 54.60). That’ll put the MG F90 in the same category as the other mid-tier MG kits.
But honestly, even with that said, I would admit the boxart itself looks good. It’s simple, and it gets the point across well. But best of all, the illustration still managed to capture that badass look of the F90 here.
What’s more, it is nice to see a P-Bandai kit with a side section that is as elaborate as this.
As I move on to the actual unboxing, the part that I find to be most interesting.
Well, for one, I’m really impressed by the overall quality of the parts, and secondly, I do like the very 90-ish color scheme that they decided to go with here. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting to see that level of quality coming from the P-Bandai side nor the badass color scheme. Because after I’ve worked on a few ‘P-Bandai’ exclusives, I admit that I was coming in here at first feeling a bit pessimistic about the quality of their work.
But I keep forgetting that this is a kit that is developed by P-Bandai from the ground up. So maybe that is why the level of quality is top-notch here.
But that is not the only part that I’m really impressed by here.
Because from what I see here, the MG F90’s manual is like your standard retail manual. What that means is that you get a somewhat detailed overview and history of the F90. What’s more, you also get pretty badass illustrations of the F90 here.
I’m glad to see that P-Bandai did put in some love and effort designing the badass manual for this MG kit.
Honestly, I’m really impressed with what I see here, and yes, after unboxing it, I’m now really looking forward to starting work on it. Although, I do need to clear up my other ongoing projects.
But at least I’m starting to put the final touches on the HGUC Gerbera-Tetra!
With that said, it marks the end of today’s Unboxing and First impressions post of my P-Bandai MG 1/100 F90 Gundam F90 (MG) by yours truly. You might be wondering by now why there are no Blog posts last Thursday. Well, that is because recently I found myself in a pickle. Because I was working on a few segments for last Thursday’s blog post, but keep having to redo the whole thing up because I wasn’t happy with the final product.
Not to mention the ever-increasing workload from my other side hustle too. It is starting to take a toll on me working on the blog and building Gunplas. So, I might have to really consider scaling back on the weekly posting and rethink how to further improve on my scheduling in these couple of days.
Hopefully, by doing that, I would be able to commit to building and delivering more Gunpla reviews as I did previously.
But regardless, it would be nice to hear your thoughts on this. So do let me know!
Also, it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on my unboxing of this P-Bandai MG kit. Do you guys experience the same things that I did here? Or are yours a bit different? It would be interesting for all of us here to hear your thoughts on our unboxing and your own experience with this P-Bandai MG kit, so don’t hesitate to text us here and have discussions with us about it.
Anyways, we will be back again the next coming Tuesday (hopefully) with more Gunpla/ Gundam merch-related posts for this blog, so yes, please do look forward to that!
Oh, one more thing before we go, it would be a tremendous help to us all here in the blog if you guys were to leave a like on our posts and or subscribe to the blog if you find yourselves enjoying our gunpla/plamo related posts. We would appreciate it if you guys would show your support by leaving an upvote on our R/Gunpla posts and by leaving a ‘like’ on our Facebook and Instagram posts or pages!

Hopefully, by sharing our love and passion for building and writing about gunplas or other plamos here, we hope that it’ll help to inspire all of here to pick up on the hobby. Or better yet, reignite your love and passion for the hobby.
Anyways, we shall see all of you again soon, and we as well hope that you all here have a splendid day and week ahead! Oh as well, please do have an excellent time building your awesome gunplas there and until next time.
