GFF MC #1003 Psycho Gundam MK-II (MRX-010) Review & Unboxing

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.

Armaments:
2-Barrel Mega Beam Gun
10 x Beam Gun
20 x Mega Beam Gun
3 x Mega Scattering Beam Gun
Reflector Bits
2 x Wire-Guided Beam Sword

UNBOXING

 

 

 

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…

GFF MC #1003 MRX-010 Psycho Gundam MK-II (10)

 

 

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.
