The MRX-009 Psycho Gundam is a gigantic prototype Transformable Mobile Armor from the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam animated series. The MRX-009 Psycho Gundam utilizes a special Psycommu System that only Cyber Newtypes can interface with, preventing standard pilots from using the Gundam. Even for Cyber Newtypes, the MRX-009 Psycho Gundam places a tremendous psychological strain on its pilot. Another unique aspect of the MRX-009 Psycho Gundam is its impressive stature! The Psycho Gundam reaches 40m tall when in Mobile Suit Mode, more than twice the size of a typical Mobile Suit used during the Grypps War. The same goes for this HGUC rendition of the Psycho Gundam, which will dwarf the rest of your 1/144 Mobile Suits, even outsizing a majority of the Master Grade Lineup!

The MRX-009 Psycho Gundam’s armaments are all fixed to the Mobile Suit, thus the only accessory with this model kit is the Gundam’s Shield.


Articulation

Building the HGUC MRX-009 Psycho Gundam is unlike any other HGUC model kit to date! If you are expecting a Perfect Grade level of detail and posability because of the MRX-009 Psycho Gundam’s size, you may be disappointed by the final product. The MRX-009 Psycho Gundam is very much still a High Grade model kit, with an incomplete inner frame and clam-shell style armor construction. The easiest comparison would be with older Non-Grade 1/60 scale Gundam Model Kits, but they can be pretty hard to find. The transformation of the MRX-009 Psycho Gundam won’t take much effort thanks to Bandai’s intricate internal design for this model kit.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The MRX-009 Psycho Gundam is so large that all of its weapons are contained within the Mobile Suit. Like the MSN-02 Zeong, the MRX-009 Psycho Gundam’s manipulators feature a Beam Cannon in each finger for a total of ten Cannons. There are 3 Diffuse Mega Particle Cannons in the front half of the torso too! These are devastating weapons capable of destroying enemy Mobile Suits in a single blast. The MRX-009 Psycho Gundam also features a 2 barrel Beam Gun mounted at the Base of its Blade antennae, a design that would be most recognized on the MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam. The MRX-009 Psycho Gundam’s Shield separates into two identical sections to complete the transformation into Mobile Armor Mode.

 This kit includes:

17 Runners total (A1, A2, B[x2], C, D, E[x2], F, G1, G2, H, I, J, PC123)
Total Piece Count – 260 with 10 Unused Parts
Foil Stickers
Materials – PS, PE, ABS
This model uses 7 screws in its construction, with a spare included just in case!

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HGUC #49 MRX-009 Psycho Gundam with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
