GFF MC Psycho Gundam Hong Kong Night Ver. | Tamashii 2009 | Review

Finally decided to open up and do an unboxing review of what we consider to be a rare find. We have here a Gundam Fix Figuration: Metal Composite MRX-009 Psycho Gundam dubbed as the Hong Kong Night Version which was released back in year 2009 through the Tamashii Nations. The main difference between the HK version and the regular version of the Psycho Gundam is that the HK version is done in a “glossy-chrome-black-car-like-finish”. Forgive the long description but I that is how I want to describe it. Sadly, the whole beauty of this figure was not captured by my equipment. If only I have the resources and photography skills of PROs haha. I did the best I could to review this kit. This is a must have especially for GFF collectors. I give it a 10/10 rating.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Developed by the Earth Federation Forces’ Murasame Research Institute as a Cyber-Newtype-use machine. Although it has the appearance of a Gundam-type unit, its internal systems are completely different and reference the MSN-02 Zeong. However, because the Psycommu system could not be miniaturized, developers were forced to produce in accordance with the machine’s size, resulting in the Psyco Gundam being more than twice the size of a regular mobile suit (MS). Although it bears the Gundam name, it is classified as a large Mobile Armor (MA). Plans for a “Mobile Fortress” in the base defense role were drafted after the One Year War. Due to its sluggish movement, the Psyco Gundam could not respond to attacks by high-speed enemy machines. The problem was solved by the inclusion of transformable mechanisms introduced by the variable NRX-044 Asshimar.

The Psyco Gundam is entirely controlled by Psycommusystem, including its fire control system and operation. It is designed so that the pilot makes up a part of the system, so to speak. As it was designed to be used by Cyber Newtypes, the Psyco Gundam cannot be handled by normal humans as the psychological burden is tremendous and possibly fatal. The Psycommu Controller function allows the Psyco Gundam to move towards the pilot via remote operation when apart. The unit can transform into a mode called “Mobile Fortress”, and is capable of atmospheric flight through an equipped Minovsky craft system. Since it has evolved from its initial conception as a “Mobile Fortress”, it was designed to mainly operate in the form of its transformed “Mobile Fortress” mode. It is armed with a 3-barreled scattering beam gun, 10 beam guns in its fingers, a head-mounted 2-barrel beam and Anti-beam Coating, giving the Psyco Gundam overwhelming power and defense. Two units were confirmed to be produced.
