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

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


With the exception of the head, I like very much this daeodon, actually it fits a lot with "my style", head features look exagerated in my view but I am sure after your walk around I'll be able of checking it better once a single catalogue picture is not clear enough.

Maybe I'm wrong but I still don't think the head is too big, the main difference with the Mojo is the thickness of the neck, not the head so much.

It is often the same with wild boar, some seems to have shorterneck or bigger head, it is often an illusion due to the neck's thickness.

I will make a walkaround as soon as I can catch one Laughing

I am beginning to like the new CollectA Smilodon more, but I still need more pictures of it.  The saber teeth do not look right compared to the beautifully curved knife like ones on the Mojo cat
figurine.  The CollectA Smilodon's sabers look too straight in the stock photo.

I agree for the teeth, I hope they will be more curved Very Happy

Even if some are far less curved than they supposed to be [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thats a good pont Christophe.  The CollectA Smilodon sabers are even less curved than the picture on the left.  The real Smilodon's sabers are shaped more like a backward curved knife and they are narrow from side to side but thicker from front to back

Well, I'm happy for these, .....except... they got the feet wrong on Daeodon! Arrgh! Entelodonts have digits 3 and 4 touching the ground only, digits 2 and 5 are vestigial. They won't show. These feet look like pigs feet! They shouldn't. Mojo got the feet wrong last year on the Hyaenodon. I think I have a foot fetish when it comes to prehistoric animals! Rolling Eyes

Actually, as a feet and number of toes or if they're vestigial or not are very important to determine taxonomically a species, their connection and their place along the evolution. In prehistoric reconstructions, it can determine which current species are used as a reference to the prehistoric animal. Thus, I don't think it is a minor thing. :)
