I don't like the Papo smilodon, simply because it looks like a dog. It doesn't look catlike at all in my eyes.

a fight scene with Safari vs Papo smilodons would look good in a diorama, don't you think, their poses kind of complement each other when u look at it

Remember, according to most experts the Smilodon was a big cat, but was very "uncatlike" in many ways. Actually, the smilodon was more closely resembling a bear, at least in the forequarters.

Still, having said that, I am not in love with this Papo smilodon. The forequarters are much too thin, he should have bulging muscles in the forequarters and his forearms should be thicker. I only have the Schleich Smilodon, and don't really like it, it looks like a very angry rat. Laughing The Safari LTD model does look to be the best, so far. Plus the Papo one is too big to be in scale with my other figures, maybe?

You're probably right, I don't know too much about the Smilodon. I still don't like the Papo one - the Safari ltd one looks very nice but I agree with Baltimore Zoo it could do with an updated paint-job.

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

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.

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.
