MSIA Psyco (Psycho) Gundam | Unboxing Review | MRX-009

We have here today an unboxing review of an MSIA Psycho / Psyco Gundam. On the box it is written as PSYCO Gundam instead of PSYCHO. PSYCO is the correct term because it refers to Psycommu System that is used by Newtypes in the series Mobie Suit Gundam Zeta. But the popular term is Psycho so we will use the terms interchangeably. I really love this MSIA figure because it is easier to convert to Mobile Fortress mode and it feels more durable and tougher than it’s HG 1/144 counterpart. This set comes with a figure of the Cyber Newtype named Four Murasame and a couple of extra hands. We won this figure in an Ebay auction by the way ^_^. Now let us move on with the review.

The Psyco Gundam’s chosen pilot was Murasame Labs’ cyber Newtype “Number Four,” or Four Murasame, and the unit was soon dispatched to destroy the AEUG and Karaba forces operating on Earth. The Psyco Gundam was severely damaged during an AEUG mission to launch Kamille Bidan and his RX-178 Gundam Mark II back out into space, and the Psyco Gundam was taken to the Titans’ Kilimanjaro base in Africa, where it would be repaired and equipped with an experimental new “psycho-control chair,” further enhancing Four’s abilities to control the Psyco Gundam.

Psyco Gundam was first seen in Hong Kong when Four are battling against Kamille Bidan in his RX-178 Gundam Mark II and then, she was forced to retreat after being defeated.

Psyco Gundam meet its ultimate fate when Four sacrificing herself to protect Kamille from Jerid Messa which stabbing his beam saber in Psyco’s head and exploded which killing Four in the process.

PSYCO GUNDAM

This figure contains more detail and packs more weight as compared to his 1/144 counterpart.

I think MSIA figures are around the 1/150 up to 1/170 scale

ARTICULATION

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (62)

 

elbow cannot go beyond that when folded outward

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (63)

 

but it did not have any trouble folding inward

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (64)

 

the knees have limited movement as well

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (65)

 

 

 

************

CONVERTING TO MOBILE FORTRESS MODE

 

the first thing to do is open the legs as show below

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (66)

 

then Psycho Gundam will do what I would like to call “reverse kneeling” position haha

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (67)

 

then you will need to fold the v-fin and the shoulder armor towards the head

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (68)

 

 

then  flip the hat-like armor that is located at the back

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (69)

 

 

forgot to mention that the waist has no articulation.

that is because the whole torso can be separated into two parts

you need to pull down a small plastic to keep the torso opened as shown below

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (70)

 

 

then now you can cover the face just by moving a chest piece upwards

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (71)

 

 

the hands should be removed

then you need to open up the parts as show below

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (72)

 

the opened flaps from the should armor and the arms should be connected

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (73)

 

 

the shield can be separated into two

the you just need to pull out the wing like part

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (74)

 

 

the shield will be attached under the arm like that

MSIA Psycho Gundam (Psyco) Unboxing Review GundamPH (75)

 

 

There you go! MOBILE FORTRESS MODE complete!
