Finally cleared up some space to do a review of this HUGE guy! Today we are going to review a Gundam Fix Figuration Metal Composite Figure namely the #1003 (MRX-010) Psycho Gundam Mk-II. This is the first GFF Metal Composite figure we have reviewed and I must say that we were really impressed at the detail, quality, weight and size of this mobile suit. It is so cool that you will be sad to keep it inside the box, it must be displayed! I give it a rating of 10/10. Bang for buck wise, you won’t regret it, worth every peso… Its already out of production (afaik) and I really do not know any other figure of the Psycho Gundam Mk-II. So if you get to see one on your local shops, give it a thought and try to check the item yourself. ^__^
The MRX-010 Psyco Gundam Mark II (“Psyco Gundam Mk-II”) is a transformable mobile weapon that appears in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and sequel Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ. It was originally piloted by Rosamia Badam, who was later replaced by the young clone of Elpeo Puru, Puru Two.
An improved development over the original MRX-009 Psyco Gundam, the Titans’ MRX-010 Psyco Gundam Mark II was very similar to its predecessor, equipped with a psycommu and psycho-control chair to allow its Newtype or genetically-engineered “cyber Newtype” pilot to control this massive mobile weapon system with mere thoughts. Though as the MRX-009’s descendant, the MRX-010 has considerably more advanced technology, specifically in the area of energy efficiency as the MRX-010 mounts a greater number of weapons that have greater power ratings, despite having a fusion reactor that only produces little over half of what the MRX-009’s was capable of.

– as you can see, the box is a bit battered… but we don’t really mind that as long the item inside is ok
so upon opening the box, you will get two things.
1. the figure and accessories in a styro container
2. the manual
The manual is packed in plastic
hmmm I wonder what it says…
roughly 8 pages (including front and back) of useful information
Before we purchased this figure, we were aware that some of the white parts of the stand are already discolored. Usually it turns into this yellowish color, which is a sign that it has been in storage for quite some time already.
AFAIK, this issue is common among GFF sets. I often read that the white parts turn to yellow most of the time or in time.
most of the contents are wrapped in plastic…
even the mobile suit itself is wrapped all-over…
these are all the stuff inside the box
you have the base plate with the model/specs written on it
the clear stand parts for the mobile fortress mode (if you choose to display it like that)
this is how it looks like when connected together
these are pegs for use on the MS feet
if you are not going to use the mobile fortress stand, then you can put this cover on the vacant area of the plate
attaching the pegs (from under the plate)
attaching the plate cover (just slide it in)
this is the connector to hold the shield pieces together and to connect it to the MS arm
extra hands (closed fist)
extra V-Fins to be used when doing the mobile fortress mode
these are not mentioned in the manual (so I don’t know what they are)
Reflector Bits which needs to be removed from the tree (prepare your sidecutters!)
wires to hold the reflector bits (but we won’t tackle that in this review)
Ladies and Gentlemen… Presenting…

much like how you attach items on your Soul Of Chogokin figures…
there are booster on the back of the head because it can detach from the body and can be used separately…

Since I will not be using the stand/base to display the MK-II, I had the MSIA Psycho use it instead… hahah!
Mk-II: Hey that is mine…
MSIA: Borrowing it… I am older than you anyway….
