It's either distribution problems or factory problems for Mojo in 2015 if you ask me.
But if you can't get your products to stores, you're not going to sell them.
And if you can't sell them, a company won't last long...

I hope Mojo will/can get their act together.
It must be tough for any "new" company to get their bussiness of the ground these days.
They started off so well.

*keeps fingers crossed*

Thanks Bojan! It shows that the new year is not only composed of painting updates but that we have new molds as it is supposed to be. :)
A 3rd grey wolf maybe means that Mojö will present again a group of common animalsinstead of unusual species but let's see what happens. The dark color is a good alternative to the lighter color of previous wolves that I like very much, specially the hunting one. Very Happy

bounce Although wolves (also howling) are well represented in all the brands, I think this is a good choice. Many collectors do like canines and Mojo is a good beginning brand. I don't have any wolves from them, yet. Because of the color. But this one looks nice! Very Happy

Ugh... don't like the paintjob very much.... look at his tail.... n, it looks like he had a dip-dye... Laughing
I do like his pose, but as Nightlioness said , there are a few in this pose.... and they are better ......
I fear for the horses.... if they have new horses [question ]..... still no news on the tinker mare , although it seems to be on sale in a Australian webshop..... scratch [www.minizoo.com.au/

Finally, a new canid! It looks better than their old wolves, since they looked similar to their big cats if you looked at the faces. Toy companies won't ever get their paint jobs quite right, since wolf pelts have a very complex layering and pattern of pigment in their fur, but I like the color they chose. But as usual, its the kind of tired pose for a wolf, I await a model with a more original pose, but regardless I will be adding this guy to my cacophony of a wolf band. I was hoping their wolf hint on facebook a while ago would be about wolf pups, so I still hope for that. But overall it seems like a nice model.

I think the "spots" are supposed to be like frosted tips of hair, not paint rubs. And just from the side view, it appears to have nice proportions for a wolf, usually brands get them slightly off like too long or short a tail etc. And I think the pattern they were going for was more towards something like this:
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/82/Black_and_White_Wolves.jpg/220px-Black_and_White_Wolves.jpg , though I admit its a far cry from reality. But as I mentioned earlier, no brand has yet to replicate the complex patterning that a wolf has, such as what's seen in this photo from this article: http://voices.nationalgeographic.com/2014/04/05/sperm-banking-revives-endangered-mexican-wolf/
which is due to the wolf having three banded hairs (three separate colors for each hair) it creates a disrupted gray and brown pattern that will never be replicated with current painting styles from companies, hence why often you only get a solid gray or brown color with mild highlights. The closest to natural patterning I've seen is in the older wolf models from Mojo, and maybe from the old old Schleich wolf with his head down, or the larger WW gray wolf from safari (though that's just patches of gray, it mimics the placing of them on a real wolf quite well). In this case, I think the model would've looked better with simply white points instead of the cream color they chose, but that I'm sure was artistic license. I will get off my soap box now... Rolling Eyes

Also yeah that appears to be another variation of what they might've been going for, though that has a lot more brown that "blue" in it, again I think mojo's figure is really artistic license. I do agree however I like the anatomy, I just worry that his eyes will make his pose look odd, but you can't tell from that angle yet. Regardless, I always welcome more wolves to my pack, after all I only have about 34 different models... Wink

The paint work on the CollectA Blue heeler fur coat is fantastic and something that Mojo is doing on their wolf.. hopefully in hand it will be more interesting than this catalog pic

That is true about the heeler, however you have to remember that CollectA is an older company, where Mojo still seems to trying to find their find feet (hence why they seem to be updating models and paintjobs every year). And although collectA did a great job on the heeler, its not quite the same as the patterning on a wolf (since more or less they used a black undercoat and then topped the external hairs with lighter paint rather than angering to a particular pattern)... this is just my opinion on things, I dunno if I'm explaining myself well enough. scratch

I don't think I like the new wolf as much as their other two wolves,that are one of the best recent wolves imo but its still pretty cute. I'll add him to my wishlist. Still haven't gotten the Papo howling wolf from this year.

I think Mojö Fun has gone and now what we are seeing is a new collection called Animal Planet instead. The company of the sloth, pangolin, crested macaque, proboscis monkey, tamandua, emmu, Tasmanian devil, giant sable, Iberian lynx, clouded leopard stoat, pronghorn, ratel, gaur, sun bear, Brazilian tapir doesn't exist anymore. Sad Maybe we received too much in a short time and we need to reconfigure our expectations. A wolf and a polar bear is more about the same and maybe next releases will be new generations of common species. The figure looks very decent actually but it is still hard to get used with this new strategy. :)

It is actually a different sculpt. Just look at the Mojo Catalogue 2014.
Instead of taking the first step with the right front leg, it now takes a step with the left front leg. LOL.

But as in: "just another walking polar bear", it is totally equal to the first. Twisted Evil

I don't have a good picture of the older polar bear from the same angle but the older version looks more toyish to me, much in line with the previous Schleich polar bear female that is far chubbier than this one. On the other hand, this one seems to have more realistic proportions, smaller head, less chubby legs more in line with what we see in Safari's figure. I may be wrong, of course once I never had the previous Mojo polar bear in my collection. scratch

I think this polar bear looks better than the previous, but it is kind of disapointing. I hope that they are just updating some old figures (since many were fairly mediocre and could be replaced) but I fear what roger said is true. If animal planet has taken over the company then mojo will be just like your typical toy company, not releasing anything intriguing or new and just releasing regular common animals (similar to what happened to schleich, after other individuals became involved with the company). I hope the first though, because although its boring they do in fact need basic animals to keep the company afloat, I just hope that the streak of ingenuity hasn't left the company yet.

I feel the same way. All the work that goes into a single figure is highly interesting, and one of my favorite things about collecting is comparing similar figures throughout companies and time. To see what figures obviously came from the same sculptor or seeing the differences in style between old and new figures or seeing the differences between a species of models to see what the artists saw and chose to represent in them. My favorite to compare are grizzlies, if you look at lots of figures between companies it represents the possible types of those bears in the wild, I.e. boxy muzzles, small heads, round bodies etc. And collecting different looking models also represents those individuals within a species.

And although i dont feel the color on this wolf is necessarily realistic, something about it appeals to me. And do hope for pups from them.... hopefully at least two since they arent often done by companies and mojo would do a good job I think. drunken bounce

I may be wrong, of course once I never had the previous Mojo polar bear in my collection. scratch

It is a far better looking polar bear than the previous Mojo one.
No doubt about that. This one looks far more realistic, as you mentioned.
So it's a better looking polar bear, but with exactly the same pose as the old one.
Why not a standing one to compete with Papo, or a sitting one? or like their previous Black Bear with a turned head? Or catching a prey?
This Polar bear is nice, but boring. It will only sell if it's cheaper than the other brands. Not because it is special.
And that makes me sad Roger.

Because when Mojo was born to this world,
they were groundbreaking, inventive and adventureous with the new species they brought us.

It is a really good sculpture! Applause Probably the best polar bear from a Major Brand.

The only problem is: I have enough polar bears, They are boring for me, so I really don't need this fellow. Rolling Eyes Come'on Mojö! Mad

It is actually a different sculpt. Just look at the Mojo Catalogue 2014.
Instead of taking the first step with the right front leg, it now takes a step with the left front leg. LOL.

But as in: "just another walking polar bear", it is totally equal to the first. Twisted Evil

I agree 100% with you Simmone! Very Happy cheers
About the same pose of the polar bear, it is related with Mojö's philosophy, Mojö rarely releases the same species in a different pose but with a similar quality as the previous figure as it happened with Schleich several years. They keep almost the same product with the same general shape and pose in a kind of 2.0 version. They intend to have the best range so most of earlier releases will be updated like that, just the same concept but in a much improved version. We have seen it with the lion or zebra for example. The moose was a different story, the figure is basically the same but in a different pose once the original moose had some problems with legs due to its pose.
It reduces at a certain point the collectability interest, first, because versions are hardly compatible and then because it is boring to have several figures in almost the same pose. But it is what we can expect from Mojö, an improvement in every step the brand gives.
By the way, regarding bears, almost all Mojö bears are in different poses although none of them is standing-up what seems to be fashion these days. Very Happy

My favorite to compare are grizzlies, if you look at lots of figures between companies it represents the possible types of those bears in the wild, I.e. boxy muzzles, small heads, round bodies etc. And collecting different looking models also represents those individuals within a species.

And although i dont feel the color on this wolf is necessarily realistic, something about it appeals to me. And do hope for pups from them.... hopefully at least two since they arent often done by companies and mojo would do a good job I think. drunken  bounce

I have few grizzlies actually just 2, the safari 2015 adult gzly ( which seems to be smiling Very Happy and the schleich growling grizzly cyclops .. both are different and i like both of them ..A variety of same animal from diff brands is excellent also when using the figures for dioramas!! I hope Mojo also returns to making some rare species again scratch  or will they??.. but I guess they need to survive first , that is why we will see more of the common animals they are releasing now ..If Mojo is just catering to collectors ( who are scattered thinly across the globe) will not help Mojo grow .. In India very few I know who collect like I do ( in almost 4 decades of my life I know of just less than 10 persons in a country of over a billion !!) .. Safari Ltd sells in India and they are an old experienced campaigner selling toys across the world... Hoping Mojo makes it too !!

Interesting, but when I said intriguing I meant with extant animals. Laughing At least their company is actually growing though, that's a good sign.

Don't just paint an old model black and call it evil, that's just lazy.
Pffft.   Rolling Eyes  They could've at least slapped some awesome batwings on it.
Or made the horn a backwards cross. LOL. Twisted Evil
Come on Mojo. Step it up. Be a little creative. Bring us something new.


arrow  I rather see the Tinker and Texas Longhorn and Lemur with baby being released in 2016.

Expanding fantasy range sounds nice. The black unicorn is not bad, but i hope for more fantasy, especially uncommon fantasy.

I´m not pleased so far... Polar bear is "same old same old"... repainted unicorn. Wolf is good but... scratch scratch I hope, there will be more new animals.
