PostSubject: Nuremberg Toy fair 2014   Sun Feb 02, 2014 7:50 pm

Today was an impressive day. and some new perspectives. I could visit the world's biggest toy fair, saw two of 12 halls in the end, a lot of new figurines and even more important: i met some nice people!
First of all, i'd like to thank James from Mojo. A really friendly, nice and charismatic guy, with lots of love for details and professional overview. I took some pictures of the booth, other brands will be represented here soon, as i accidently met Yurumi (Ralf) there, who had some monster of a camera with him!
So this thread isn't meant to be advertising for Mojo only,....

So let's start with,....Mojo Very Happy
2014 will be grat! the lions are great, the Pangolin is even more beautiful in real than any picture can capture. i also like the sunbear better now, although i miss some folds on the forehead. the zebra's nice as well, the highland cattle is extremely well done. But ladies and gentlemen: the sulawesi macaque, it is a dream. Amazing figurine, same with the boar. The Thylacine has to be judged when repainted. the komodo dragon's paintjob is better than on pictures, i thought of reworking it a little as the pose and the general habitus still remind me of a stuffed specimen. Last century. "animal planet" will soon be better known as Mojo, comparable with "kleenex" or "Tempo" for tissue,...The new horses seem to be great as well, although i don't know anything about them.

CollectA:
I have to revise my opinion concerning the narwal. i need it! it's awesome, and better than the safari monterey one in some points. Springbok is also better tha on pictures, although the legs are still shorter than they should be. the leatherback turtle is wrong to me, looks like a deformed hatchling. Jackal, mufflon, barbary sheep, the absolutely fantastic bowhead whale (way better than the sloppy painted safari one), the brilliant pygmy hippo, the fantastic mountain Nyala and fallow deer, they make some problems less important: the pygmy hippo calf is to big compared to the adult, especially the head (again!) seems to be a little oversized. The face of the diana  monkey looks more like a witch or a wizard tranformed to a human-like monkey,...The black bear has some similarties with the hungarian pig. The fur seems comparable. But i like the face! the pygmy sperm whale is really awesome, less obvious spraypainted, only the joint is a  little ugly,... Tasmanian devil and cassowary are more than beautiful, they're hard to beat candidate for best figurine,...! But. the anacaonda has such fantatstic detail, but proportions, pose, oversized head and slender body: all no-gos,....The water buffalo is terribly impressive and will look good and fantastic with the Mojo Gaur! Unfortunately, the legs of the wild ass were still very short,....

Safari:
very professional atmosphere, contact to a german retailer who might also have some old stock. I am asked to send him a list and he will see. He also sells to private customers. So let me know, i hope for some old reptiles, evertebrates and maybe prehistorics,....
Cave dwellers toob: i will buy it. Deep sea creatures: nice sculpts, less paintjob. Cryptozoology. more or less unpainted,....Incredible creatures. the Gouldian finch looks very real, the piranha is a shiny piece of art.
Dinosaurs: i don't know enough about them, but the Megalodon is not that good,...Wildlife wonders: The wolf sculpt is awesome, the regular willdlife news are nice but painted as usual with thick coats of paint,...Pecary and anhinga are nice sculpts but will have to be repainted as well. The new dolphin is as odd as in the pictures. i like the head details of the pilot whale, the thresher shark looks like a gummi bear and to me the bowhead whale is rude painted,....

Papo. well, the snowleopard is better than expected but the head reminds me of....the jaguar! nice paintjob, really, but weird figurine. The new male lion has awesome details such as mane, mouth and so on,but unfortunatley, i guess to achieve such fantastic details, the face is an extra part, made off two pieces and attached. the dog breeds were awesome, same with the really fantastic beluga. The loggerhead turtle is really good, better than the CollectA one in my opinion,despite of the "fissure". Wings and tailfeathers of the macaw are to short. the octopus is fantastic,same with the proportions of the hippo. We stronlgly disagreed with the zoo, which is a prison-toy for kids,..not very educational. But our favourite figurine was: the fantastic detailed wolf cub! Better than the adults and the best wolf cub available.

Schleich: i didn't visit the booth. Wild republic: only plush toys, at least as far as i have seen

Me too, I would do anything to go to the London or Nuremburg exhibitions. Sadly I probably won't ever get to go to one at all, even the ones in the States are far away from me.  Rolling Eyes drunken

@Robert: oops. Mr. Freud.....  Very Happy 
the problem of this fair: it's not public.
And some people representing companies might be less into a certain hobby than you might imagine,...i won't tell which ons were the rudest, but some are more interested in consumers than others. I also didn't know how big the chinese community actually is, how many repainters there actually are,...I hope Ralf finds some time the next days. Except for Mojo, numaan already posted some pictures from London.
@Ana: Yes, it would be nice to meet you there next year.

Philip, sorry for my bad english Embarassed and thank you for your help with some translations.
And yes, I'll post the pictures later SleepWink

Sleep  affraid  Laughing ...my first Station was Safari LTD. with a very friendly people and a nice presentation, which incidentally applies to all brands.

I think Philipp has said everything about the new models and it's largely agree with my opinion, but everyone feels it differently Wink

Here some pics of Safari LTD.:

wow, thanks Ralf! So see it was very good to forget the camera at home! What a bunch of brilliant pictures of really nice to absolutely stunning figurines! Now it's obvious what masterpieces macaque, pangolin and boar are. And don't forget abot the Safari Gould's finch, Piranha and pekari! Looking forward to Papo and CollectA!

Thanks Philipp for your comments about figures and congratulations for having the chance of such a wonderful experience. Very Happy
There are some superb figures here and an average quality much higher than what we were used 5 years ago. study
I like almost everything, and excelent Ralf pictures make me want even more most of these figures. The only exception is the Safari rhino, I like it but it is not a good figure. I understand that Mojo bear can miss some details, but it gives me a wonderful sensation of realism that I cannot explain.
I love crazy macaque and pangolin, of course! Ralf, all thanks should be directed to James but unless, the species choice of pangolin, you have to thank me! Laughing Laughing tongue
Hmmm, is the Hungarian pig similar to CollectA black bear? pig affraid Laughing
