Again, the model is great, but this color:( (Even if there are any)
The Papo and also the Schleich are much nicer (I think).
Well now is not on my wish list, but it must rather look at times in real life and then hope that it suits me more.

Florian, of course that's you opinion that deserves all my respect, though, I hope Mojo or any other brand won't use Schleich komodo as reference. For me it is one of the worst replicas of this animal. It almost don't have body, it looks a concentration of scales and the toy looking beats clearly any kind of realism.  Mojo's sculpting is not comparable in my opinion. Though, I agree with Philipp, when a figure has good proportions and realistic sculpting, a straight pose makes it look somewhat like a taxidermy work and that's exactly what I don't appreciate very much in Mojo figure. Very Happy My favorite is also Papo despite its color, but proportions are great and movement is superb. Very Happy

Schleich Komodo from Coper collection

You've right Roger. The best is papo but the colour is bad. Very Happy Very Happy

I like this a lot. My favorite Komodo Dragon figure available has been the Colorata. This new Mojo is actually quite similar. I believe that the belly of Colorata Komodo dragon is also off the ground.

Unlike many other collectors, I'm actually a fan of models that have a very static pose. It's one of the reasons why I like some of the classic Schleich figures. (I'm not criticizing other collectors. Far from it. I'm just remarking that different collectors have different tastes.) I also really like the coloring of this model, specifically the dark head and arms and the contrast between those areas and the rest of the body.

Nice work Mojo!

Here is a picture of the Colorata Komodo Dragon, in case anyone is interested:

Scott, thanks for your picture of Colorata komodo dragon! Am I used to see it from the other side? From that angle the figure looks to have more movement and even the belly looks nicer. Though, anytime I see that komodo, I feel like seeing a fish with legs instead of flippers. Laughing Being a Colorata, surely it is an excelent figure and much better in real. Very Happy

Hmm... that first picture does that have weird greenish color, almost like the Papo one. I didn't know they came green.  alien Laughing

Finally, from our dearest friend Croger from Portugal,
the Mojo Komodo Monitor arrived.

And what do i have to say: It's of great detail, despite of the static, lifted pose which i interpret as a posing "looking bigger" male. But head proportions, whole body shape and details are gorgeous. And i also do own the Colorata, Schleich, Papo (repainted),...

I am glad you received it and that you like the figure. Very Happy
It is also nice to read your considerations about the figure. :)
