PostSubject: Group walkaround: Snowy Owls from Möjo Fun, Safari Ltd, Schleich   Wed Apr 08, 2015 8:19 am

Here are three snowy owls, by Möjo Fun, Safari Ltd, and Schleich. I never expected to get three of these birds, but each is attractive in its own way. They have interesting differences when you compare them, so I thought I would share some pictures. The Safari owl stands on a rock, its wings opened, the Schleich is perched on a branch, and the Möjo stands directly on the ground.  Very Happy Let's have a look:

What do you think? The Safari is the most dramatic, the Schleich is finely crafted, with a distinct personality, and the Möjo has an elusive (almost statue-like) quality that makes it very appealing. In the end I couldn't pick a favorite...

Interesting and beautyful comparison-walkaround Applause

No wonder you could not decide which one you wanted most ! They are all magnificent Very Happy
No way I could have chosen only one !
And as Mojo's model is probably a male, and the other two perhaps a female and a young, you have a lovely family cheers

Thankyou for putting a happy smile on my face on a grey morning sunny

Good comparison photos! Applause If there was a mixture of the Schleich owl and the Safari ltd owl I'd definitely buy one. This Mojo one seems to have a little bit too long neck..? scratch

Thank you for this excellent topic! Bravo Applause Applause Applause I'm enjoying it a lot and I wish it is only a beginning Very Happy

I have these three owls so I have no choice to do, indeed I can't Wink .

I know some of us have some doubt about the Mojo neck. I don't think it is obviously too long, pics with longer necked pose are not so rare. It is not the most common pose but it isn't impossible.

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

Susanne, grey days are perfect for enjoying plastic wildlife. Wink
The owls do go well together. If I see the Safari exotic birds toob in person, I may consider its owl for repainting as a fledgling.

Christophe, thanks, I enjoy everyone's walkarounds here, so I'm sure I'll think of some other things to share pictures of.

Regarding the Mojo's neck, perhaps it is more of an illusion from the sculpting, which has a less defined "shoulder area". It looks fine to me. Just for fun, a quick search shows images that remind me of each of the figures:

poses similar to Mojo's- [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

like Safari's- [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], with those wider open eyes [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

and a Schleich-ish individual [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Congrats!
And I agree with you: each owl has its own feature. And so I liked all models Very Happy

Excellent comparison topic with three very nice snowy owls! Very Happy
I agree with Susanne, with you, Christophe... everyone actually! Links you're providing show that all three are good representatives and Susanne explanations show different reasons to get them all. Very Happy

They all three have very different personality.

Pictures have been restored. Smile

Also, I noticed in the store that the Mojo owl has a changed paint scheme, with added black marks:

Yes, thanks Andy for recovering this wonderful comparison topic! Just like Kiki, I haven't noticed also the painting update on Mojö's snowy owl. It is now clearly a female. Very Happy

Believe it or not, the Schleich one might be my favorite. I like it's snowy base as well! Although I like the dynamic pose of Safari (normally I side with Safari)

I also like this. Having the feet gripping a branch allowed them to give it nice sharp claws.
