PostSubject: New Mojo 2015 Elephants   Fri Jul 03, 2015 7:42 pm

Here are a few photos of the new Mojo 2015 Adult Elephant and Calf. I do like them but of course I have some concerns. I find Mojo to make their animals a little larger in scale to the other brands, but this new adult elephant is a small size for such a large animal. I was surprised and a little disappointed. The new Mojo Lioness is almost as tall as this elephant. I do like its style but it is also not a great length either. I do like the calf--though when you look at the head straight on it looks like the poor little thing had his head in a vice. Let me know what you think.

Wow, you already have them! They're nice, but that unflattering grey paint and the skin on the adult really piss me off right now. What happened to MOJO?!?
Anyway, can you please make a comparison photo with their latest lion or lioness? Thank you!

Abomb! bom elephant
That's so hard for me to tell about this figure. I expected Mojo was able of doing it better, that's for sure. On the other hand, this is a kind of revolutionary design among modern brands and can represent a step forward in toy elephants realism. Texture is quite exagerated for my taste too. It could mean that this figure will have a long life in their range. scratch Skin also doesn't fold like that and color is boring. Proportions could be a little better.
This time I have to say that Mojo missed the imput of STS members in this figure. Surely the result could be better and that's our goal anytime we try to help. I have to see it in real and I'm sure, being it an elephant, it will be available in every shop selling Animal Planet. Thanks! elephant

They would make good custom models I suppose, not too hard to fix the issues with them Very Happy

Here are a few photos of comparison of Mojo Lioness (2014) and Elephant (2015). odd scales I think.

It looks like the elephant's body is shorter. Kinda disappointed No

No, they are supposed to fit a certain price range as it happens with Schleich and other similar brands. :)
This lioness is too big for 1:22 scale while the elephant is too small! Laughing Though, maybe you can find some closer to the 1:22 scale, I can't remember now but maybe hippo, rhino, etc. study

Congratulations, Shawn for this early find Very Happy

Giant lion or pygmy Elephant Laughing
Thankyou for the comparison flower

I think that what makes this elephant look so odd, is the difference between the exagerated skin texture on the body and the totally smooth ears. It is like the model is not completely finished scratch

@Shawn; hehe, I love the taste of it and the place I had it. (Cyprus brandy sour!)

@Rogerio; it's not the scale, but on those first Mojo pics of the elephant I got the impression that it will be huge. I will get him anyway. But won't put him near Mojo's big cats. Very Happy
