No, the vulcan port is next to the v-fin.
Those are probably coolant tanks or something, for the vents to leak off.

So? But seriously it's the vulcans. In the Origin manga the entire side parts of the Gundam's head came off (which almost makes some sort of sense) and for the OVA redesign Katoki went full retard and put the doors in the back.

I like how they have three different Zaku head designs then the Origin OVA one that contradicts the fuck out of all of them.

Am I being rused?
The 1:1 is based on the Ver Ka gunpla, not the other way around.
>>
>>13746007
I mean it was implied it probably came from somewhere else I just don't know why you would go that way with it. I assume the doors are probably like that in real life just so they can get inside the fucking thing for the eye lights.

I was kind of wondering in hindsight what the point of picking the Revive to get was when all the current RX-78s besides the ugly as piss Origin OVA version have the same shape besides like the faceplate and backpack, but now that I've seen it the lack of the back of the head split line in the others sure irrationally pisses me off.

It just makes no sense for the Origin OVA design to be taking arbitrary RG details like that when they completely changed the design anyways though. (couldn't they have taken something useful like the split knees instead at least for fuck's sake?)
>>
>>13746054
No you're just a fucking retard.
>>
>>13746007
Why do people add lines, cuts, ect just to add them. It doesn't improve the design, just makes it more noisy.
>>
>>13746081
Undifferentiated surfaces are boring, and it's easier than looking for places to add details that have a logical reason to have it.
>>
>>13746081
Because I'd prefer if it looked like it was actually made of parts instead of cast in one piece of marshmallow.

Does the RX-78-2 ever duel weild the sabers?
>>
>>13746166
It's mostly access ports used by maintenance crew to access the mechanisms. Though it's harder to justify when it goes into Katoki levels.
>>
>>13746313
If it did it was very rare; Amuro made consistent legit use of his shield, so much so that the RX-78-2 is about the only Gundam where it doesn't feel like a pointless accessory to me.
>>
>>13746468
Only asked because he obviously has two. Unless it was for backup reasons.

Needs a V-Fin or Command Horn.

>so much so that the RX-78-2 is about the only Gundam where it doesn't feel like a pointless accessory to me.
It feels weird to praise this, but SEED. CE beamsabers don't block each other, they require the physical shield. Then again, with SEED (at least early SEED) being so steeped in MS:G, that's not necessarily super notable.
>>
>>13746503
The beamsabers can also extend (the body, not the beam) to form the beam spears. Amuro does totally throw the spear at Gaw carriers on Earth, so having a spare is pretty useful.

The Vulcan barrel is next to the V-fin. The Vulcans aren't loaded through the barrel.
>>
>>13744371
The vulcan BARREL is next to the V Fin. What, did you think it was loaded by ramming the rounds down the barrel like a musket? And leaking coolant is a seriously bad idea. You want to run it through a radiator and recirculate it, not jettison it until you run out.

That person has impeccable taste.

Same. I had this huge GP01 where its shoulders would open up, and I would imagine the verniers as missile launchers. I'd also imagine the beam sabers were laser guns.

can't the double zeta's beam saber shoot out beams while docked?
it never does it in the show though

in games it does. So does the Zeta's when stored in the hip racks.

I think I was the weird kid that thought all glass looking parts of an MS were cameras/eyes. To me they looked like they were made out of the same material as the eyes so it just made sense to me.
>>
>>13744362
Was it in 0083 where the vulcan ammo was belt-fed?
>>
>>13747594
But isn't the box in the front and back of Gundam/GM ect the actual camera? While the eyes/visor is just for show.
>>
>>13748411
No, the eyeballs/visor are actual eyeballs too.
The big head lens is a camera as well.
>>
>>13744362
that's the completed Tem Ray circuit
>>
>>13748411
The lens at the top of the head is the main camera, and the one on the back is a rear camera. The "eyes" are secondary cameras providing a view of the same scene from a slightly different angle that the onboard computer uses to calculate the position and range of targets in view.

>>13751089
temperature doesn't help that much

it wasn't melting through the armor anyway, it was tearing chunks of armor away
>>
>>13751129
He means hotter as in more propellant, so higher projectile velocities.
>>
>>13744384
Well it was true for Dangaioh I guess
>>

we already have an anime about what happens if you put the completed tem-ray circuit on a GM though

If you don't know, I'm not going to tell you

>>13751129
what
>>13751147
said. It's a gun term; hotter=more powerful propellant to throw behind the rounds for when they are fired.

It's amazing the number of people who don't know how guns work. Even in America it seems people have gross misconceptions and the only people who do have an inkling about how guns operate are the gun owners themselves.

The sad thing is that gun ownership is not really any guarantee that someone will know much about how they work.
>>
>>13755679
Not sure what that has to do with anything, but sure. It's just like how lots of people own cars, but many of them don't know how they work. Chances will be greater that a person would know if they have owned and operated one.
>>
>>13755679
Most people don't know anything more than "Press button, receive loud noise"
>>
>>13744362
Which Gundam is that? I remember reading somewhere that the Mk II didn't actually have vulcans built into its head, but rather wore a headband with them.
>>
>>13756414
Only one with a white V-Fin back then. RX-78-2
>>
>>13756414
2016 is the year where someone posts a picture of the RX-78 on /m/ and someone asks "which gundam is that?"
I knew it was coming but i didn't want to know

>I'm suppose to memorize the designs of a franchise I'm not even a big fan of and it's known for its lookalike lead robots to the point of distinguishing them from a screencap of 1/4 of their head
Sorry, I didn't know.
>>
>>13757016
It's one thing not to know every design ever. It's another thing to not know the original, the single most merchandised, and widely posted Gundam design.
>>
>>13757097
I do know the original. Just not detailedly enough to tell it apart from its lookalikes just from seeing 1/4 of its not very distinctive head.
>>
>>13757011

You're missing the point which was that people who don't own guns tend to come up with a lot of misconceptions about them. In this case believing that they are loaded from the barrel.
>>
>>13757119
They don't really look all that much alike, though. They have some co mmmon design elements, and the hero gundams have mostly matching paint jobs, but most of them should be pretty easily distinguishable.
I could see someone getting Gunblaster and V-Hexa confused, or 0 Gundam and RX-78-2, maybe even Heavyarms and Leopard, but the rest of them really don't resemble each other that much.
>>
>>13757119
>shot literally frames all the elements that the RX-78 has that no other Gundam does
