issue.236「十分"出色"」GENERATIONS Optimus Prime

"Freedom is the Right of all Sentient beings."

之前介紹同系的Ultra Magnus時已講過本模的好與不好,今次就不再重複。當然Optimus Prime是比Ultra Magnus更早發賣,作為Generations相隔一年之後復歸的首炮。

<War For Cybertron>的續篇<Fall of Cybertron>,繼續描繪賽星上的內戰年代,萬年主角Optimus Prime也獲得機體小昇級。說白了,“昇級”就是為造就商品化的新機會,尤其Optimus這位搖錢樹角色,孩寶豈肯錯過。初看設定圖,整副機體雖然更硬朗、所有舊機體的大弧線全被直線多邊形取代,不過整個骨架、部件的鋪排仍無太大變化,譬如後背的大車轆。這為改變而改變的拙劣表露無遺,過多的直線死板有余,與WFC時代那豐富的造型節奏相去甚遠。而“好”消息是:實物會比舊作變化很多。事實上這不是好消息,之所以大不同,是因為孩寶繼續自<DOTM>開始的縮水政策,而且縮得更瘋狂,D class已經無限接近以前的Scout class尺碼了。

當縮水縮到影響設計發揮的程度,就可想而知兩作設計怎能雷同。對比設定圖改動明顯,背後的車轆移至手臂內側。既然細尺寸嚴重限制發揮空間,Takara的設計師們惟盡量用概括手法還原機體,而且也吻合孩寶簡化變形的要求。可惜,小了就是小了,縮水減少了難度,卻也縮走了角色的氣勢。實物的第一印象極度不堪入目,大概祗有Optimus的死忠才會情人眼裏出西施?Takara Tomy當然明白箇中的死癥,但唯一可補救的就是為後出的日版炮製了100分出彩的上色,盡可能起死回生。結果,在我身上,真的起作用了!

比起過往選擇性點綴金屬漆的詬病做法,這次Optimus的上色可用豪華級形容。金屬色幾近覆蓋全身,還原出遊戲的重金屬美感,還有恰到好處的螢光粉紅勾線、點綴,單單對比美、日兩版的車轆,就知道何謂化腐朽為神奇。當這兩年間不得不習慣了孩寶的縮水之後,現在又開始覺得他算ok了,並逐漸發掘出簡單設計帶來扭得盡情的好處,而且扭起來很有鏡頭感。

讓我再人為地為他多加一點分,換上Warriors From Cyborgtron Weapon Set的雙鎗,效果更正。同時根據設定集,Magnus額外加配的大劍確實屬於Optimus的,是時候物歸原主了。

    雖然外型很多缺憾, 不過我都很喜歡這個foc op,
    因為認真比較起來, 這個可算是可動最平均的文哥, (不計mp高階產品)
    基本上所有應有關節都有齊, 而且下身可動算是最高的,
    以前的文哥基於拖頭造型, 下盤基本上是不用怎變的,
    所以也不會造多幾個關節令腳部可動提高,
    這個因為變形關係, 膝部和足踝可以180度屈曲, 可以造出很多深蹲姿勢.
    要多一個文哥之'最', 也是個合理的選擇呢.

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Howdy, I do think your site may be having web browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, fantastic blog!
