Daeodon looks exagerated more in accordance with pop culture, though, I love pose and legs. pig Smilodon looks a Percheron! Laughing Nice figure however. Very Happy

I love the Daeodon. As for the Smilodon, I think its a vast improvement on the silly looking one
CollectA previously did, but still not nearly as accurate as Mojo Fun's Smilodon by any means.

I like Daeodon very much. Seems a very good model for that picture and the another one posted. Texture is good. Maybe I have prefer with a closed mouth (why a lot of prehistoric models appears so many times with the mouth opened?- no answer necessary, all of us know it Rolling Eyes )
Smilodon is like a big bobcat. I will need more pictures Very Happy

I agree Joan. A Bobcat's markings look just like that.  I still don't understand the great need to make Smilodon's coat with markings, when they haven't a clue if it had markings at all.  I think its a much safer bet to keep the coat just plain tan.

I agree it looks like a Lynx/bobcat, just supersized and with much much larger teeth.

Overall, this new CollectA Smilodon is a decent casting. Its certainly one of the better Smilodonts from a mainstream toy company.

The Daedon looks wonderful.
He's got happy feet!
I can imagine him doing some dancing steps while singing a Sinatra song. Laughing
I do hope he will not be too big for my collection, being Deluxe and all.

I like this Smilodon figure because of his cat-like (not bear-like) character.

Regarding the marking - there were more species with *probably* diferent coat, see:

This CollectA figure is similar to S. fatalis (the larger S. populator has *probably* more lion-like coat).

I think its a safer bet to make Smilodon Fatalis without markings of any kind.  There are many paleontologists that do not agree with the spot or stripe theory for Smilodon Fatalis. This is something that nobody will ever be completely certain on.

I'm very happy to watch these two models, I guess I will find a place for them at home Very Happy

We are often on the same mood Rogério but in this case I don't think this daedon is exaggerated. It is of course different from the Mojo one but I think both are true to the skeleton. Very Happy And I like the pose Wink

Of course marking or not is a matter of taste and we will probably never know the truth, unless we find an Ice preserved fossil. Nevertheless most of the Feliformians are marked, unmarked ones like lion or puma are the exception. Even young lions are marked... Wink

I like both figures. Very Happy But it would be nice if some brand has made a smilodon with his mouth closed, I think the appearance of the head would be more harmonious and interesting.

Anyway I think I'll get both. Rolling Eyes

Christophe, you captured exactly my thoughts. I don't have a problem (in principle) with companies making markings on the Smilodon. I quite like the markings on this CollectA model.

I do think a model with a closed mouth would be wonderful though. But I'll certainly be getting this CollectA Smilodon.
