CONGRATULATIONS, Taos cheers
Which one of the men is it ?
I think those stone age men from Papo are fabulous, - no sentimentality there, - they are hairy and have big, dirty feet, scowling faces rumpeled hair cheers

Ah, that's very cheap! The smilodon is a very expensive figure here! Congratulations for such a bargain! :)

The Neanderthal that I got has a spear.Its really nice but the only odd thing is that the spearhead is blocking his face but I do agree with Susanne that they are good cavemen!! :)

Dear friends!
We have another smilodon to discuss, and this one is really bear built!

Hi Roger
It sure is. I think its Morphology is very excellent overall. I'm a a big fan of this figurine.

Hi all I am new to this forum, grew up obsessed with animals and now studying to be a vet. Love Papo as the sculptures are exquisite, being an artist I love the realism of the big cats and the papo wolf to name a few. However I must say I am disappointed with this Smilodon, so much potential when looking at the big cats from papo to make the ultimate smilodon replica, epic fail in my opinion. the Safari Smilodon outclasses this pit mix with blunt tusks for fangs


Wow, I completely agree with this, although the Smilodon figurines I would say outclass the Papo one even more would be Safari Missing Link, Carnegie , & Mojo ones.

I completely agree with you. It's morphology is so wrong for a Smilodon. Mojo Smilodon is so superior in every way.

Actually, Roger, I don't see much scientific inaccuracies... Rolling Eyes

I decided I will get that bad boy along with other ice age mammals... Cool





When I look at the Papo Smilodon, I see all kinds of scientific inaccuracies.  I think it is WAY to slender in build, with incorrectly curved, blunt tusks for sabers and a head that to me looks even dog-like and not cat looking. Smilodon was very stocky up front with very heavy forelimbs as to wrestle large prey to the ground.  The Papo figure's front legs look like very skinny canine legs and not even as stocky as modern cats, let alone Smilodon.

It is great to see my opinion being supported after all this time. This is an exciting action figure more to the Chap Mei side but as a paleo design it is a complete failure. cat

Hi Roger
Im glad to support you on this.  I agree with you on the Smilodon.  Its morphology is very wrong.  I myself choose to collect Smilodon figures that are stocky built, like the Mojo, Carnegie & Missing link figures.
