MSX-10I Icarus Gundam
Well people, this MOC is very, very, VERY late, I know...BUT! I've promised that, I would finish it, and post it one day. And that day, is TODAY! I present you my final unit of the 5 Gundams! The Icarus Gundam! This unit was inspired by several other gundams, most notably the Nu Gundam, Victory2 Gundam, Strike Gundam. Also, please leave your toughts and/or questions in the comment section. Thank you!
About this creation
The successor unit of the Valor's Edge Gundam.

The Icarus Gundam is an entirely new unit, that was built in secrecy, along with the other four units.

1x Hyper Bazooka
1x Beam Machine Gun
2x "Cutlass" Dual Barrel Beam Pistol
6x Fin Funnel
1x Chest Beam Spread Cannon
2x Beam Saber
1x Beam Buster Katana
2x Beam Shield
1x Beam LMG (Full armor mode)
1x Laser Cannon(shoulder mounted) (Full armor mode)
1x Missile Pod (Full armor mode)
1x Mortar Pod (Full armor mode)
2x Smoke Launcher Pod (Full armor mode)
2x Rail Cannon (Atmospheric Flight mode)
2x Long Range Missile Pod (Atmospheric Flight mode)
2x Auto Beam Cannon (Atmospheric Flight mode)

Special Equipment:
1x Beam Accelerator Engine
4x High Manueverablity Pods
1x "Fortress" full armor
1x "Wings of Icarus" Pack
1x Atmospheric Flight Pack

Icarus Standard Land mode




























The Beam Machine Gun, capable of rapid fireing short bursts of Beams


The Beam Buster Katana is an enhanced beam weapon with the ability to actually pierce trough enemy beam shields




Atmospheric Flight mode: In this mode, Icarus can fly under Earths gravity.






Atmospheric Flight Pack: Equipped with two pods of missiles for surface bombardment and two Auto Beam Cannons that can track targets independently.


The Rail Cannon is a powerful long range weapon




The three basic modes of the Icarus Land Type, Atmospheric Type, Full Armor Type


The Full Armor Type is meant for frontal assaults of heavily fortified bases, however due to the added armor, the Icarus can't fly, but it can still hower above ground fast. It's a land equipment only. Supported by a large variety of heavy weapons, the Icarus becomes a moving fortress.










The Beam LMG is an upgraded verison ot the Beam Machine Gun. It has a slower fire rate, but a more powerful beam, that can shred trough enemy armor. However, due to it's weight and power consumption, it can only be used with the Full Armor mode.


THe Laser Cannon is a precision weapon, but it functions more like a flamethrower would, it's continous beam heats up it's target with time, until it melts away. Perfect for opening up paths and forcing enemy pilots to abandone their units.


The "Fortress" armor is an added layer of special rare metal, that can withstand multiple beam hits before it fails. However, it weights the same as the standard armor plating of the unit, thus slowing down the movements of the Icarus.


The Full Armor mode is also eqipped with additional boosters for enhanced howering speed


Long Range Missile packs for anti air


Mortar Pack for long range bombardment


The Icarus gundam equipped with the "Wings of Icarus" pack
























Hyper Bazooka aiming




Fin Funnles released and locked on target




The Chest Beam Spread Cannon is basically a beam shotgun, it does little damage at range, but can do serious damage up close, however it's best used as a counter against incoming missile barages.


The pilot of the Icarus, Lt. Jin Mayers, a very talented person, but also hot headed and straightforward...


The Hyper Bazooka launches Anti Ship torpedoes at high speed, it's perfect for fast hit and run attacks


The "Cutlass" is a dual barrelled beam pistol, that can also be used for melee attacks a closer distances.


The High Manuverability units make the Icarus more agile and capable to change course at high speed in an instant.




The Wings of Icarus Pack houses the special Beam Accelerator Engine, that uses beam technology to propel the mobile suit to incredible speeds. This pack enables the Icarus to be the fastest mobile suit in space. It also carries 6 fin funnels


Fin Funnels are remote controlled "drones" that can shoot beams and can fly very fast, they can also be used as flying "blades"


"Perfect" Form of the Icarus Gundam. Even tough this setup is doable only in space it would be a last resort setup, since it would pu way too much strain on the unit.






Wings of Icarus on full throttle


Icarus launching from Argus


An early POVray shot, Icarus holding the Beam Buster Katana mimicing the "Gatotsu" pose from Rouruni Kenshin :P






The "Argus" Carrier, the ship where the exorcist team is stationed. I've modelled it after the Reinforce Junior from Gundam Victory.


This is an early POVray shot, so the ship's main color is white on the finished version.


The ship has a miraid of beam cannon turrets nad a giant Beam Umbrella on the front for protection, along with a beam spear head, to charge trough enemy ships.






Bonus: An early group shot of the Exorcist team with different colors


Thank you for checking this out! It's been forever since I've announced this, but it's finally done, and I can move on to other projects! Sadly the presentation didn't reach the level I envisioned for it, but I had to choose between releasing it as is, or waiting for several more months to finish it.

Quoting Tony Snyder Was checking this out in LDD and playing around with it figuring out all the gimmicks and all the little details...my only question is.. is how in thee heck did you attach the "full" armor to the actual model itself I got a few of them figured out but like the chest, shoulders, and thighs i got nothing...I've been scratching my head trying to figure this out cause if I happen to do a F.A.Z.Z Gundam, something close to it, or a Gundam with HWS or detachable armor I'd like to know for reference. Thanks a million :)
I've separated every important part into small "groups" that has to be removed/switched out, in order to attach other kits on the model. For the armor on the chest, you will need to remove two small black pieces. For the shoulder armor, you need to remove the front and back 4x4 plates. There's also a seperate part on the backpack that needs removal to install the flight pack or the funnel pack. I hope this helps. :)

Quoting Tony Snyder Dude....I saw this the day it was posted...my mind melted from the sheer awesomeness of it..Reminds me a lot of Nu Gundam/ Hi-Nu Gundam with the HWS system and Aile Strike gundam..in fact its like a hybrid of the 3...Me personally I don't think this needs a Ver. Kai variant at all and is literally perfect as is..if you do a Ver. Kai I'm gonna need a brain transplant cause the awesomeness will be too much...LOL
Thanks! You are right about it being a hybrid of sorts! I always loved the Nu/Hi-Nu Gundams designs, and the seed style Mobile Suits, so I always wanted to do a mixed unit. I could still upgrade this, since there are tons of new and improved parts from new sets lately, but I'll keep it as is. So don't worry, you won't need a doctor for this one...but I'm not sure about the other 10 or 15 MOCs that I have yet to show... :P

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Welcome back! This guy looks great and is a great finish to the collection. I'm not sure what in particular to comment on, since the whole build looks like a "real" Gundam. I think the head design is especially brilliant.
It's good to be "back"! :) Thanks, I'm already plenty happy if it looks like a "real" Gundam for others! :D I had about 20 versions of the head by the time I felt it was good enough, and that was 2 years ago! Actually I haven't improved this since I finished the model back in 2015...cuz' if I do, I'd have to do the others as well... :D But who knows...it might get a KAI upgrade later on.. :P Aaaand there's still the bad guys left too...

Quoting Doug Hughes Very impressive builds! The well polished edited images are a real bonus too!
Thanks! I'm sort of a maximalist, when it comes to my MOCs, and I just can't stop fiddling with them, until they reach satisfactory. The same goes for the image editing, I wan't to make them as good as I can, to fully express my vision.

Quoting Bobby Hunter OMG OMG OMG OMG YOU'RE ACTIVE AGAIN! This is soooo flipping AWESOME!
Well, this was a promise I made, so I had to finish it...we'll see how much activity I'll have later on. I still have about a dozen finished MOCs, they just need a good presentation and background, but I'll get around those too, eventually. :)
