2005 Spider-Man Vehicles Duo 2005 Marvel Heroes Series Non Scale Diecast by Majorette


Cuando empecé mis reseñas sobre vehículos diecast, publiqué un par de modelos de un amigo mío (también coleccionista), que encontré bastante interesantes y muy bien diseñados. 

Lo que más me sorprendió, fue el hecho de que fueron fabricados por Majorette (cuando Majorette y Solido, dos fabricantes franceses de réplicas a escala en diecast, se unieron para sobrevivir en este mercado competitivo). 

Esta no es la clase de cosas que puedes esperar de esta vieja y reputada marca. 

Realmente, ni siquiera el enfoque de esta línea particular es el usual, porque la mayoría de marcas que lanzan modelos diecast, presentando una franquicia del cómic, simplemente escogen crear una decoración relacionada, sobre sus modelos regulares. 

Sin embargo, Majorette fue más allá, creando artículos que de alguna forma representan la esencia del personaje correspondiente, en el diseño mismo del vehículo. 

Puedes ver y sentir la agilidad, astucia y juventud de Peter Parker como Spidy en estos fantásticos diecast. 

Algunos cambios han venido ocurriendo dentro de Majorette y siento que no todo está yendo por el camino correcto. 

Hasta ahora, los nuevos dueños (Simba-Dickie Group), siguen la misma tendencia de otros fabricantes masivos de diecasts: "reducir costos a toda costa" y creo que no verás las viejas réplicas a escala con gran detalle, caracteristicas como apertura de capós, puertas o baúles (dependiendo del modelo) y carrocería/chasis en diecast, hechos en Francia; al menos, no a un precio asequible... 

Afortunadamente, estos deliciosos modelos son de la "Era Francesa" y sí, fueron hechos en China, pero recientemente este enorme país llegó a ser el lugar, donde una de las manos de obra más calificadas para la producción de diecast, está disponible... 

Si no me creen, confirmé que mis dos sorprendentes diecast de AUTOart, ya publicados, que pueden ver aquí y aquí, fueron hechos allí =PPPPP). 

No esperaba conseguir ni uno siquiera, pero gracias a mis amigos/colegas/proveedores conseguí dos en vez de eso !!!... 

Presentan diseño grandioso y dinámico, además de trabajos de pintura/tampos bonitos y convincentes. 

Chasis en diecast con carrocería plástica (no tengo queja sobre eso, esta vez), ruedas plásticas y soberbio diseño de rimes (cromados), con construcción multiparte, realmente encantadores en conjunto !!!... 

Jos 1:8-9 "Nunca se apartará de tu boca este libro de la ley, sino que de día y de noche meditarás en él, para que guardes y hagas conforme a todo lo que en él está escrito; porque entonces harás prosperar tu camino, y todo te saldrá bien. Mira que te mando que te esfuerces y seas valiente; no temas ni desmayes, porque JEHOVÁ tu DIOS estará contigo en dondequiera que vayas." 

Sus visitas son apreciadas siempre... =)
 

ENGLISH 
When I began my reviews about diecast vehicles, I published a pair of models of a friend of mine (collector as well), which I found quite interesting and very well designed. 


What surprised me most, was the fact that these were made by Majorette (when Majorette and Solido, two french manufacturers of diecast scale replicas, that came together to survive this competitive market). 

This is not the kind of stuff you can expect from this old and reputed brand. 

Actually, not even the approach of this particular line is the usual, because most of the brands that release diecast models, featuring a comic franchise, simply choose to create a related decoration, over their regular models. 

However, Majorette went further, creating items that somehow represent the essence of the corresponding character in the design itself of the vehicle. 

You can see and feel the agility, craftiness and youth of Peter Parker as Spidy in these fantastic diecast. 

Some changes have been occurring inside Majorette and I feel that not everything is going in the right way. 

Until now, the new owners (Simba-Dickie Group), follow the same trend of other massive diecast manufacturers: "cut costs at all cost" and I think that you will not see the old scale replicas with great detail, features like openable hood, doors or trunks (depending on the model) and diecast body/chassis, made in France; at least, not at an affordable price... 

Fortunately, these luscious models are from the "French Era" and yep they were made in China, but recently this huge country became the place, where one of the most qualified workforce for diecast production, is available... 

If you don’t believe me, I confirmed that my two astonishing AUTOart diecasts, already published, that you can watch here and here, were made there =PPPPP). 

I didn’t expect to get not even one, but thanks to my friends/colleagues/providers I got two instead !!!... 

They feature great and dynamic design, also nice and convincing paint job/tampos. 

Diecast chassis with plastic body (I have no complaint about that this time), plastic tires and superb rims design (chrome), with multipart construction, really charming overall !!!... 

Jos 1:8-9 "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for JEHOVA thy GOD is with thee whithersoever, thou goest."

Your visits are always appreciated... =)

I guess by now u know that I am old fashion type and obsessed with "almost realistic" elements in toy cars... so yeah, I dislike the car but I love the color scheme on this one, its very hard to produce such finishing - multi color on 1 body - simply awesome!!!

chrismandesign said...

yep, i know that and is pretty fine... i mean, when i’m looking for something realistic i’m very very picky (so i’m very old fashioned as you, in a sense LOL) but when i’m looking for something weird then realism is not the priority but the quality and these diecast are just awesome !!!... as you mentioned, the color scheme is so neat that you couldn’t believe it (paint job and tampos are perfectly accurate =OOOOO)... i have not seen this level of accuracy in this scale so far... =)

Unique design and rich spidey taste. With good friends and colleague, getting good toys won't be an uphill task.

HEHEHE... actually i realized that the best way to get what you really want is through the help of friends/colleagues, since they can really understand your needs and find the best price most of the times... this was one of the right moves for Majorette (in the old good times) and yep, the cars are striking !!!... =)

You really can write about die cast cars. For me I cant think much to write about them. HAHA!

The colours from this series are so vibrant!

chrismandesign said...

HEHE... it must be the fact that i loved the diecast mini-replicas long before i met the comic/anime worlds and i collected them "systematically" when i was a kid LOLOLOLOLOL... it just flows... you should try, is not that hard... oh, Majorette does know how to make really nice models... at least in the old good times... =)

i used to collect this brand of diecast cars back when I was a kid. Too bad they were "sacrificed" for my process of Growing up! HAHAHAA!

chrismandesign said...
