Has any Gundam ever used vertical vents instead of the horizontal ones?

>>13816374
I don't really have a preference, but since RX-78 set the standard, I guess vents.

Ventless should show up every once in a while, it's nice variety but shouldn't be the standard.

For what it's worth a lot of my favorites are ventless.

High-Nu has a nice color scheme going for it but it's still another fairly stable take on the standard looks.

Good-looking, but still standard.

Now, Hi-Streamer Nu, that's breaking traditions.

It defies tradition, at least in the Gundam face design.

I love the RX-78 head design including the vent, but I hate how every new gundam seems to copy it after ZZ Gundam and all throughout the 90's and Seed and Destiny stuff. It's just so overused. I'd prefer them to try something else like the Zeta and 00 Gundam did. I liked seeing it on the Gaeon and the Neodu though because it felt like they were subverting it. The Gaeon has an LED there's no reason for it to even have vents.

The Turn A's mustache is probably my favourite though. I hate how gunpla builders keep giving him a regular faceplate.
>>
>>13816447

This is one of my fav gundam heads, even though the anime is shit
>>
>>13817626
I really don't like how Gaeon has mouth vents. It had a digital face display and they still gave it mouth vents.

Get real. One more vent and a different colored chin are piddling compared to no vents or no chin.
>>
>>13817626
It's not copying, like the white/red/blue color combo, it's a symbol of a gundam. You see a robot with V-fin or faceplate in an anime then you can tell "Yep, this thing is from Gundam".
>>
>>13817781
As far as I know, most lead Gundams follow RX-78-2's exact face.

The Hi-Nu, while having both vents and a protuding chin, is still different from the standard face overall.
>>
>>13817814
Christ mate, I love the Hi-Nu but it is NOT that different from the RX-78-2. That's the main reason I love it, since it's clearly Amuro's suit.

If you really want to say something that defies the traditional gundam face (or pisses at it, whatever), you go with this one.

I like that vents are the standard, but some ventless helps keep things fresh.

Ventless with another face underneath is the best, though.

But that point, the only other lead Gundams were the Zeta and ZZ, both had different faces from the RX-78. Only the mk2 was similar.

To be fair the Unicorn only resembles a Unicorn because of his horn. Unicorns and Lions are a UK symbol of royalty so it makes some sense. The Banshee just looks like shit because it's a dumb recolour do nut steal.


>>13817787
Even so they still look so similar that I'm tired of it. Or at least I was until G Reco.

>complaining about SEED and Destiny using vents when only 1 out of every 4 Gundams had them
It's actually another one of those weird things where SEED is really what made not having vents a normal thing but 00 gets credit for it.
>>
The no vents look always struck me as more mysterious, serious, and elegant. But the vents added that iconic, powerful look to Gundams.
>>
>>13820401

Well, 00 putting the focus on the ventless Gundam(s) probably helps it a lot. There's 4 of them, 7 if you count the Thrones, to one Strike/ one Freedom/ M1 Astray spam in the climax arc and no other vented Gundam-types to compete with in 00S1 apart from 0 Gundam in a handful of appearances.
