A decent HG kit, with surprisingly good articulation, but very sticker heavy, and those stickers aren't too great. Be prepared to paint quite a bit, if you want to get perfect results.
It comes with to sets of stickers for the regular mode (green visor, grey vents) and the HADES mode (red visor, yellow vents). You get a red and a green visor, but they fit so tightly that you won't be able to swap them, unless you sand the peg first.
Another small complaint, is that the 2 blue colors aren't very different, so the kit feels as if it was molded in one color. Bandai should have made the dark blue a bit darker, imho.

Despite many negative reviews on the net, after some personal experience, I can tell you that it is a great model. Adjustments have been made since the Macross Frontier models, so that this one has much more gimmicks, and is also much sturdier, and doesn't fall apart all the time.
You should still remember that this is a model, and not a toy, so don't expect any crazy poses. Also, some reviewers have complained about the brittle plastic, but I did not experience any breakage, at least yet. Still, it's best to handle the model gently, just to be safe.
Unlike the red one, which came out first, this one doesn't have any problems with falling parts, so adjustments have been made between releases, and it is better to buy this one, if possible. In any case, they have really minor differences anyway.
All in all, I would recommend to buy it, just to see the amazing engineering inside!
