1997 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Sports Car (C5) - 2004 Transformers Alternators Series Battle Ravage Decepticon Transformable Action Figure Scale 1:24 by Hasbro


Creo que estoy algo retardado (por si acaso, no me refiero a retardo mental, aunque a veces lo parezca =PPPPP...), pero ahora con mi nuevo trabajo, mi tiempo disponible se redujo drásticamente (y sinceramente, lo prefiero de esa forma) así que más de dos semanas después, publico mi regalo de cumpleaños, pero más vale tarde que nunca. 


Este fusiona dos de mis pasiones: los autos y los mecas, pero aquí sucedió algo similar a una fusión entre Vegeta y Gokou en Super Saiyan cuarta fase hehehe...

No tenía planes de adquirir más Alternators/Binaltechs, en buena parte porque no son figuras precisamente económicas, pero no pude evitar la tentación de nuevo. 


Mi Subaru Impreza WRC/Smokescreen tiene ahora un amiguito (o debería decir enemiguito ??? HAHAHA) y el disfraz no podría ser más tentador: un Chevrolet Corvette Convertible de 1997, uno de los pocos autos deportivos que se fabrica en Norteamérica, con una silueta muy sexy y depurada, 7" de largo; pero que en modo robot logra para mí un impacto incluso mayor, pues viene forrado de armamento hasta los dientes (literalmente) y resulta imponente, pues es más alto y ancho que su amiguito/enemiguito con una altura de 8".

Cuenta con un nivel de detalle sobresaliente (con razón tienen el aval o licencia de las marcas de automóviles que representan), un trabajo de pintura/tampografía preciso y muy bien logrado, con acentos cromados y su transformación es un proceso árduo (lo calificaría como nivel 4, al menos), por lo que, aunque es una delicia verlo exhibido, resulta una tortura fotografiarlo... 


Por ahora, sigan en sintonía y no olviden hacerse mis seguidores, su apoyo hace la diferencia =DDDDD

ENGLISH

I think that I’m somewhat retarded (just in case, I don’t mean mentally retarded, though sometimes it looks like =PPPPP...), but now with my brand new job, my spare time was drastically reduced (and frankly, I prefer it that way) so more than two weeks later, I publish my birthday gift, but better late than never. 


It merged two of my passions: cars and mechas, but here it happened something like a fusion between Vegeta and Gokou in Super Saiyan fourth phase hehehe...

I had no plans to purchase more Alternators/Binaltechs, largely ’cause they are not precisely cheap figures, but I couldn’t avoid the temptation again. 


My Subaru Impreza WRC/Smokescreen got a new lil’ friend (or I should say lil’ enemy ??? HAHAHA) and the costume couldn’t be more tempting: a 1997 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, one of the few sports cars manufactured in North America, with a very sexy and refined shape, 7" long; but in robot mode it manages an even greater impact, as it comes armed to the teeth (literally) and it’s impressive, since is taller and wider than his lil’ friend/lil’ enemy with a height of 8".

It has an outstanding level of detail (rightly they are endorsed or licensed by the cars manufacturers they represent), a paint/pad printing job accurate and very well done, with chrome accents and its transformation is an arduous process (which I would qualify as level 4, at least), so while is a delight to see him displayed, it’s really a torture to make some photo shots on him... 


For now, stay tuned and don’t forget to become my followers, your support makes the difference =DDDDD

Actually some of the Alternators/Binaltechs are good. Both hasbro or TakaraTomy version have their own advantages. I have some mixed of them. :)

What a masterpiece that is so well made! It really stands out on display especially the gloss and metallic finish. A perfect toy for a robot/car lover like you.

to LEon:

I think Alternators/Binaltech r great series of excellent collectibles, that cater to collectors like me, avid of realistic cars & fantastic robots... this was a wonderful gift i must say !!! =D

chrismandesign said...

to Dennis:

definitely, indeed for me is a sort of sample of high engineering applied to a collector figure... i guess is something that needs a lot of imagination & common sense... the result is very interesting, accurate & attractive, actually they catch the eye... their high price is more than justified for me =D

Chris this set of photos is amazing! Are you shooting on a mirror or a hi gloss surface? They look like they are out of an auto show catalog.

chrismandesign said...

TYSM CB that was actually a great compliment comming from u =D... well i try to do my best in my shots, as a proof of my respect for collection figures & i think i’m improving my skills (modesty aside LOL)... my main resource is natural light that works both as main & fill light (i hate flash in my pics, since they eliminate the richness in colours), i used as well an slightly smoked mirror surface & a contrasting colour background... ohhhh almost forget, another two main resources: common sense & good taste XD

chunky B said...

Don't sell yourself short these pictures are awesome. Lately I have just grabbed my wife's point and click camera and snapped a quick shot here and there. I have access to a nice lighting set up if I want to shoot the macro stuff, but what you are doing with just natural light is amazing. Those last two resources are a must as well, LOL.

NelMan said...

Awesome! Awesome figure and equally wicked photography, Chris!

I always wanted to get into this Binaltech thing, but once I do, there'd be no turning back... so, I'm staying away (no thanks to their prices)... for now. LOL!

By the way, congratulations on the new job, man! :)

chrismandesign said...

WOW !!! i’m truly flattered LOL, a new compliment on my pics, now comming from a professional photographer... i didn’t expect this X.X... TYSM pal & THX again for sharing my joy bout my brand new job, it really means a lot for me =D

sl619 said...

the photos and mecha is great! more action shots of it and also with its "partner/enemy" would make it even more interesting(when hv spare time that is). XD

chrismandesign said...

hehehe... sorry sI619, i’m more the kind of blogger that doesn’t like to make vignettes with his figures =/... rarely i make a sort of semi-dioramas in my post, but is not the rule here LOL... anyway, who knows ??? someday i will feel crazy & i will do that for my fans... @.@ BTW, there is a link in this very post where u can see his friend/enemy, just click & see =)
