  Perhaps so. Not to mention that natural newtypes are really scarce, so
miniaturizing the psycommu system wouldn't be a high priority; the newtype
labs seem to be capable of producing more monster mobile armors than
artificial newtypes to pilot them.

  Right, and if I recall correctly, the NT labs were established before the
Titans were founded.

  Indeed, but he got the Type 100 _immediately_ upon returning to the moon -
no time for analysis of the captured Mark IIs. Probably Anaheim was
finishing up the Type 100 during the Side 7 scouting mission.

  Well, it does allow Scirocco to do newtype power-ups and engage in psychic
standoffs with Hamaan. :-)

  Based on the animation, it only seems to kick in during emotional crises -
Camille gets special effects when he's duking it out with Yazzan and
Scirocco, Judo gets to do wacky newtype stuff only when Puru is killed and
during his final battle with Hamaan.

  Or for normal psycommu, either - the pilot wouldn't be able to use it.
