Following Christina's comment, I share this video about the hypothetic no extinction of thylacine. Very Happy

Finally thylacine, my favourite animal, in the big scale! Congratulations, Mojo, for this very good decision!  sunny 

unfortunately, this thylacine is typical Mojo figure, very good shape but poor paint, esp. the face is very shoddy (I see no lighter areas here). I think the eyes should be bigger and the background body color with more shades... Is there any chance for changes before the official release  question

That's another surprise from Mojo, and I'm happy for my thylacine, and specially because her baby has, at least, a father Very Happy

I think it's a good sculpting. As Anna said, for proportions we must see the first photos, because in the other ones the borders are distorted (focus and lenses of the camera, I suppose)... Anyway it's normal than the head of that thylacine is long. It's because it's a male and males had longer muzzles than females. I'm sure Anna made a good work on documentation about this specie and she brings that information to that model. For those who are interested in tons of information about thylacines, please, check this link where I could find all I need when I was working in my model.

But I think painting could be improved in those items:
- I'm sure there was lightest parts on the face and chest, specifically around eyes, mouth and internal parts of the ears. That can be contrasted in B/W pictures of living thylacines. I think colour patterns of taxidermy animals are not accurate because chromatic wealth is lost.
- Shoulders and upper parts of the back could be darker, and also the finish of the tail. That also can be appreciated in some dead animal skins that are conserved. There are also some of them that this variation is not appreciated, but I think that the model could be more beautiful with that darker parts.
- In the back of the hind legs there was a part without fur, where can be seen the plantar pad and could be painted with a grayish colour. Sometimes Thylacines stood up on his hind legs and these parts of the leg were in the ground.

If Mojo was time to introduce these figure would be much more beautiful for collectors (at least for me  Very Happy )

Sad Wink It's beautiful! I absolutely love it. Thank you so much Mojo and Ana!  cheers I can't believe a thylacine was finally made, after so many people wanted one. I think the face looks spot on, based on the old photos online when you search it, so I don't see the same problem. The only thing I would think might need fixing is maybe making his eyes a tad bit bigger. Otherwise, for me, he is absolutely perfect! Very Happy drunken 

I agree for the eyes, I agree it is a great model. I have no doubt about the sculpting. I agree to be very happy again  cheers

Great species-but again a dissappointing figure-it looks not very good to mecheap and somehow sztrange--and not like a Thycline was looking. So Mojo 2014 is a very dissapointing year to me-what a Pitty, after what that Brand has released in the past two years.

Very Happy
It's about 10% bigger than the female by Joan so probably they fit. Smile

Male thylacines have longer heads than the females. And also, he does look a bit sad, but maybe there will be happier looking variants?

It's true because at the end of the film "The hunter" the thylacine looks a little bit sad.

They looks good, the thylacine is better that on the previous pictures, but I still don't like him so much. The sculpting is very good, maybe a little long neck and bigger eyes than it would be perfect!
But thank you for this amazing specie Mojo! Very Happy
And thanks for the pictures! cheers

The devil from CollectA is really great figure - I hope I will get this one soon, the thylacine is unfortunately heavily degraded by bad (too simplified) painting...

I finally managed to purchase one of these. They are hard to nab in the US. But the other day I saw somebody selling three of these on ebay. I nabbed one and the others sold quickly..whew! I'll post some close ups when I get it.

This is great! I confess, I don't understand any of the complaints or reservations expressed above. Like Paige, I went and looked at the available photographs (and shots of taxidermied specimens) and the sculpt looks spot on to me. I'm very excited about the model (and this was before I learned that Anna had sculpted it). This and the Sun Bear are my two most anticipated Mojo models.


I completely agree. To me, this sculpting of Thylacine is absolutely perfect.
