What's your favorite face type for a mech?
The masked two eyed ones like most Gundams, Optimus Prime etc
The unmasked ones with nose and mouth.
The monoeyed ones. The visored ones.
etc etc

any face besides the main gundam one. I like the visors more and some robots look good with mouth.
>>
I love visors with really thin slits. They always look really menacing.

Eyes. But even better is eyes behind visor. >>11177949 and its Banpregoggles was cool, but the ones where the eyes only appear when they glow is great. 00 got kinda funny about that with the Flag/Brave line, they do that effect basically for kicks given the visor isn't even where the camera is.

2 eyes for good guys (green or blue).

Monoeye for bad guys (yellow or red).

I hate mouths on robots, especially when they function like human mouths instead of just remaining static & just a cosmetic detail.

Vents I don't mind, but I prefer without them.
>>
>>11177684
Depends on the robot.

If it's a sentient being (Transformers and the like) faces are totally fine, a-okay.

If it's simply a machine that's piloted, I don't want faces at all. I like visors, cameras, all that jazz. The closest thing I like to a face on my machines is the Gundam face, but only for high-end/custom machines.

I love everything except mouth faces.

If I love the show enough I can get past it, for example Big O and Gurren.

But anything with a mouth or nose is bound to be less loved for me, I enjoy Getter Robo 1, Gigantor, and Mazinger, but feel subpar about Giant Robo or sentai robots with the mouths.

I don't know, maybe I'm just weird. The greatest sin for me is stuff like Bayformers Prime's mouth, hate that look.

No facial features at all, simply visors, whether they be like the Flag (which has the eyes at the top but whatever) or GM-style, they're the best.

That or camera-heads, like the Dillfam, VF-1A, and Scopedog, for different styles.

Harute and Red 5's.

Two eyes into four eyes gives me a hard-on.

Common face types, from best to worst:
Slit visors (Unicorn, M9)
Static humanoid face (Big O, Grungust)
Large monoeye that takes up the entire face (Crimson Typhoon, VF-11)
Standard visor (Ingram, GM) - bonus points for eye(s) behind it
Eyes, but otherwise non-humanoid (Arbalest, Shin Getter)
Gundam face without vents (Exia, Huckebein)
Moving, expressive humanoid face (Braves, Lagann)
Gundam face with vents
Standard monoeye (Zaku)

Visors that imply or explicitly have two eyes behind them. (See also PTX-001)

not too sure. i like mouthless designs, for the most part, and visors. but it has to fit the body, which is why i like the types of heads that are on top of transformers and brave series robots, for the most part. but if i could have any kind of robot head, it'd be a gm head. i like the visor/monoeye design of it alot.

this, i kinda grew tired of mechs with heads. as there's really no reason for mechs to have highly aesthetically decorated head for their purposes. cameras and sensors and what not, will work even if they're not fitted in some overly elaborated art piece. a simple dome would do

Oh yeah, that's right. For some reason, they never quite register as eyes to me as the visor does.

Maybe it's like how most Virtuaroids have two visors?

Anyway, you got me. I guess this'd be a better example then.

one eyed like many Armored coresor visor type

also I like the triangular heads

The entire thing (beak, visor and mouthplate) is just a mask. Real face is below that. You can see the silhouette of the proper eyes behind the visor.
>>
I'm pretty forgiving when it comes to mecha faces, but I hate noses and mouths on mecha. If it has a face like a person, there better be a goddamn reason.

Like, Eva Units get a pass on mouths because they are actually organic. But other than that, the only time I can think of that a mech had a human face and I didn't hate it was the Big O, and that was mainly because it fit the batman gothic style of the atmosphere of the show.

Masked/unmasked faces are okay.
Monoeyes are pretty cool. The Du-gong sound when it activates helps.
Visors are dumb, especially the giant ugly ones they slap on GMs, Jegans, ReZels and the like.
