PostSubject: No more Mojos at MPV :-0   Sun Nov 22, 2015 7:58 pm

I just got a newsletter from MPV, saying :

In einer unserer Informationen waren wir noch optimistisch, dass wir die 2015 Mojo Neuheiten bekommen würden. Nachdem aber die Kontakte bis zum Mai 2015 mehr oder weniger Einbahnstraßen waren und ein letzter Versuch Juli / August auch kein Ergebnis brachte,  sind wir nicht mehr optimistisch. Nach jetzigem Stand gehen wir davon aus, dass wir keine neuen Produkte des Herstellers anbieten können.


My best translation :

In one of our newsletters, we were still optimistic that we would get the Mojo news for 2015.
Since May 2015 , however, our communication has more or less been a one way street. A last try  in July/August gave not result either, and now our optimism is at an end.
According to the current status we now presume, that we can no more offer new products from this manufacturer.

Shocked  Sad  Sad  Sad

That was virtually the only source of Mojo for me Sad Too bad, I need to order a couple of models soon while they're still in stock.

What should I say? It's really sad but they won't make money if they don't bring new figures to the market.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that. Lots of people buy from MPV!  Crying or Very sad

I had hoped the brand would become more established and available globally. I would love to someday see Animal Planet displays in stores in the US, like all the big displays we see from Schleich. Mojo has a great product and I really want them to succeed.

Not really.
Spielzeug didn't get any of the new 2015 figures in, well maybe accept for the fugly dinos that are laughable. Twisted Evil
But none of the other 2015 expected animals.

Roger! Crocodile
question
They turned away from you/us/STS
and decided to turn towards MPV (if my memory serves me right?)
and now even MPV is getting the cold shoulder from Mojo ?

WHAT????
Oh my........
This doesn't look good at all.

That's exactly what I'm thinking about, and I'm really wondering about the future of Mojo, next year don't won't get any new dinosaur (just repaints), then what's about the wild and farm animals?
Maybe Anna has some news?

These news makes me very sad really. Sad I was lucky with James and got a close and very friendly contact with him during the first steps of the company. James accepted my challenge of interacting with our community what I thank a lot and I know most of you enjoyed it.
We started some fantastic initiatives like the votation for the most wanted figure to be released resulting in a vitorious sable antelope. We developed, all the community and online, the sloth. Something quite unusual to see a commercial project open to everyone. We created several teams to help the brand in the development of some of their figures... clouded leopard, proboscis monkey, Iberian lynx, etc., etc. I have myself given my imput in several of their figures. We saw Anna joining their team of sculptors and creating some marvelous pieces like the awarded gaur. The first repainting of their giraffes as a work of Harriet, the Iberian lynx, my personal number 1 wish in toy shape and a figure that is still used by the Portuguese Institute of Conservation in their program. The Indian pangolin and the black crested macaque, projects that Mojo offered all the development and imput to me and Christophe respectively.
Obviously, this cooperation was good to the STS prestige and helped the company turning more popular. We won't ever forget Mojö and Mojö also won't ever forget us once we are officially a part of their history as we can confirm in their catalogues.
Naturally, more commercial oriented forum communities like MPV and DTF moved their influence to make Mojö work directly with them. I don't follow other fora enough to understand what happened but I remember that when James desappeared from STS, he was also not active on DTF, about MPV I really don't know because I never read it.
I believe, as long as the company is growing, it turns hard to keep all links with collector communities. Numaan used a more viable strategy, not bringing directly the brand to the forum but serving as a direct interlocutor between CollectA and our community what also brought excellent results.
Sorry for my long comment but I really hope that Mojö is in a good shape, I love the brand and I enjoyed to know James and I think he is a special person and deserves all the luck.
Also, as a collector interested in all aspects of this hobby, my opinion is that the Mojö advent was the main responsible for a boom of diversity of species in these last years, CollectA was before a company with almost a traditional range. :)
Thanks for info Susanne! Very Happy

Have you tried to contact the official distributors to your country? I know it is not the same as buying in an online shop but it may be helpful to some of you.
You can find distributor contacts here!

Mojo has long-term serious logistic problems and I am not surprised that in our country are their 2015 figures still not available. When I asked Mojo about some figures availability in the Czech Republic, I got usually answers related to Germany or Austria... Laughing Mojo has still zero knowledge where to find the Czech Republic on the map (see their website) Rolling Eyes
Unfortunately, the online shopping was/is the only chance to get full range of Mojo figures for me...

It is really bad news. MPV was a great source for buying Mojos for many collectors. I think this is very bad for Mojo to loose the opportunity to sell their models there. And it's also bad for collectors who want to find Mojos in Europe, especially the more uncommon species which are often not available in toy shops. Sad Sad Sad Sad news. But I understand the decision of MPV too.

No, I really know nothing.
I get not many emails from Mojo this year. But I know Mojo's are available in Poland, and in The Netherlands also (V&D shops), these info I got from few sources and I have seen them in real in V&D shops too. I don't know which big online shop in Europe have them. Also, as far as I know the 2015 models are not available in Europe yet. At all. I will try to ask James but he seems very busy in recent times. Neutral

If it's any consolation, I haven't been able to get them in my Canadian store since last year either. They dropped their (ineffective) distributor, and don't appear to have a new one still.

They also aren't much for communication on Social Media, where I used to be able to at least make contact.

I do wonder if Mojo is going to stay in business because even in the US,its not very easy to find them. I had to go to a Hobby Lobby to get the Pronghorn and it has multiple paint chips on it at that.

Other than Bullyland, I think Mojo is the hardest to find online in the US. Going off this- I guess this is true for other countries as well. I do hope they will keep producing new models but this doesn't look very good for their business.

I hope that they stick around. In 2013, with their incredible releases, in my opinion they were at the top of the charts as far as quality and diversity. I was looking forward to their future. Then in 2014 it was kind of bland, and 2015 only had two or three figures for me. I hope that the downhill trend doesn't continue, but it isn't looking so bright. I'm not totally convinced that we will even have any releases this year unfortunately.

The pronghorns at my Hobby Lobby were not well painted and all of them had paint chips. Quite disappointing. I hope the pronghorn is on the list for a paint upgrade. It's such a wonderful sculpture.

Hmm.. this is strange and sad news. If Mojo wants to sell their stuff, letting down MPV I believe is a big mistake, as I believe many buy their Mojos from there.

I hope there will be a solution.

(I still want the 2015 Tinker Rolling Eyes)

You should be able to find most Mojo animals on Amazon and eBay USA.
