If there is going to be one Gundam that will leave all Gundam fanatics wetting their pants, it will have to be the MRX-009 PSYCHO GUNDAM. Psycho Gundam towers over all the Gundam units in the Universal Century. It made its appearance in the Zeta Gundam series and as HG 1/144 model kit. The Psycho Gundam has finally made its way into the Gundam Fix Figuration (GFF) line up as of the GFF #1002 Metal Composite figure. I happen to have the GFF #1001 Metal Composite: RX-78-2 Ver.Ka. So should I get this figure as well?

I have plugged two fantastic online galleries to share with you.
They sure got me poisoned!

Quoted from earlier post.
Unlike the earlier GFF Metal Composite #1001 RX78-2 which is the first GFF to be made in 1/100 scale (the scale of Master Grade model kits), the GFF Metal Composite #1002 Psycho Gundam is only 1/144. The GFF Metal Composite #1002 Psycho Gundam is not the 2nd Metal composite to be released. There is actually another GFF METAL COMPOSITE LIMITED #1001 RX78-3, which is exactly the same build as earlier with G-Fighter, except the colour scheme adopts the G3 style. but Though it came about as quite a disappointment since I was expecting to start a 1/100 GFF collection, but the thought of a 1/100 Psycho Gundam is simple insane, not to mention the price tag. In the Zeta Gundam animation, the height comparison of the Psycho Gundam to the RX-178 is approximately 2:1! Having the Psycho Gundam in 1/100 scale will mean it will be around 41cm tall, making its display an issue. Hence, the GFF Metal Composite #1002 Psycho Gundam is expected to stand at around 30cm in height! I will have to settle with that! Like the earlier, I swear by my own blood that the GFF Metal Composite is a 'Premium Collector's Series' where Disappointment is Impossible.
