So the money I will be saving from not spending on Mojo figures, since I'm so good hearted and generous, I have decided instead I will spend that money on eye glasses(pending on the results of an opthomologist's vision screening test) for collectors who cannot see the sub par quality of Mojo.

I should ignore this sad commentary but rather accept it as a kid joke. And I love kids! tongue
In that respect I say you're right because I have the bad habit of seeing the two sides of life, good and bad.
This marks the difference between who is happy and full of humor and who spends his time complaining because he wants to drink milk and do not have who opens him the package. Sad
Instead of complaining in vain I've had the opportunity to report the mark concerning the pattern of the giraffe and this has been received and will be corrected.
In fact, this has been discussed here in the forum but microscopes give us a very accurate vision but it not let us see what is going on around. Rolling Eyes

Of course I tried the same with the giraffes of Papo and Safari, poor figures, but here I am exactly in the same point than you, complaining in vain. cheers

Hey!!! What is going on here??? Shocked
My first comment was much more harsh and harder then what i put here now, but i erased it, wise a i can be... Laughing
Lets respect eachothers opinion guys! cheers
I know, somebody from a neutral side, can look at models quit harsh, as i am doing that mostly myself... Shocked
Somebody who is more into the business of a company will take some comments more personally, but he doesn't have to, as it is not his company...
But both thoughts and comments are well regarded, and taken into considery, so don't attack eachother personal please, ok?! Cool

It's true, all the Robert's gazelles (Nanger granti robertsi) are Grant's gazelles, mostly because Robert's gazelle is a sub-specie Wink Laughing

Unfortunately no members here are named Grant, and Robert is the real first name of Skythelimit...

Gazella granti robertsi

Named for F. Russel Roberts, who collected the specimens from which the race was described.

DESCRIPTION Similar to the southern Grant gazelle, except that the male's horns are not lyrate, but bend sharply outward at a point about one-third of their length from the base, so that the tips are very far apart, and the tips then bend either downward or backward. Females have normal horns. Flank bands in females are either absent or very faint.

In short - Grant's gazelle with horns like those described is Robert's Wink

I do not agree with you. The name "Roberts gazelle" is very rarely used in natural programs, textbooks and the same computer, only subspecies of Grant's gazelle. Anyway, a picture of gazelle Grant's (literally) and not Robert's gazelle, because if the picture is taken in the plain Serengti in Tanzania, it is not possible that it was a subspecies of Robert's gazelle, because he is more to the north of Africa, I mean northern Kenya and Ethiopia .

It's very strange, because subspecies "Gazella Grantia Roberts" does not occur in the plain of the Serengeti in Tanzania, and the picture certainly is there done, I'm certainly not sure.
For me Isteni no such thing as "Roberts gazelle" in the list of species, species are Grant's gazelle, and end, and Robert's is the only subspecies of .......

"DISTRIBUTION: In Tanzania, from Mwanza on Lake Victoria to the Serengeti Plains; and northward to the Loita Plains in Kenya.

Males with robertsi-type horns are often found in the same area with others that have typical granti-type horns, and individual animals may exhibit considerable variation in horn configuration. It is also possible to find heads with one robertsi horn and one granti horn."
So, yes - Robert's gazelle IS a variation of Grant's gazelle, a Subspecie if you want to call it like that, but inevitabely it does exist whether you like it or not. Just look at the horns...

Yes, there is. But I never change my mind about the species and subspecies of whether you like it or not Very Happy . ;]

I don't care at all, the fact remains that at least one of the animals in my picture is Robert's gazelle

Well, it´s my first time in this topic, and I have to say that I am very satisfied with my small Mojo collection: the smilodon and the mammoth. The color is very real, and the smilodon is the most beautiful of all the brands. In my wishlist, for the next month, I put the animals from Africa, and the Anna´s horses too. I saw the little t-rex on facebook, and I love it so much, he is very cute, and I´m crazy waiting for it too! Well, I´m very surprised with this new and young brand, and is a pleasure to start a new collection with their figures.
