I love dogs, but these... aren't my favorite. I'm against the hind legs being to AKC standards (permanently bent) like that, and I'm not a fan of the coloration. The lack of some longer hair makes it look more Belgian Malinois-ish to me. The pups ears look odd but it could be the angle, and I appreciate the attempt at a unique playful pose though it looks stiff. But all the same, I like the alert expressions and I appreciate how they are expanding their dog line, though last year's Dalmatians in my opinion are a better representation of breed. Good chance I might buy them though, catalogue pictures can make the models look worse than they are so I look forward to seeing them in person.

Ohhh! Two more dogs cheers

I like them a lot Very Happy

The adult is perhaps looking a bit stiff, but to me it looks like she is just ready to jump after a ball or some other thing she likes to play with .bounce

I adore the puppy, and the fact that it is not a "toddler" . Just like the Golden retriever , she is probably 3 - 4 months old Very Happy
They  DO have floppy ears that fall at strange angles when they are "teenagers" Laughing
And the pose is wonderful Applause

I can't wait to see them playing round at the top of my piano Laughing

Thankyou for the pictures, dear Anna flower

The dogs looks o.k to me, but nothing more I,m afraid Neutral Their pose looks a bit stiff and the color does not look very good to me scratch But I,m sure someone will love theme Smile

They look good to me and the youngster has a very nice pose. German shepherds are the most common dog in toy shape - naturally these dogs are not exciting for most collectors avid of diversity but commercially they never fail. I hope they serve to consolidate the interesting line of dogs from Mojö and open doors to less common breeds in future. Very Happy

Very nice figures! It's true that I have seen better ones, but since these are still great representations of one of my favorite breeds, I will probably get them.

This is likely because of people like me. I can't resist cute dogs like these. Sorry.

I see what you mean and I'm not a big fan of this either. While it's great to have toys that have good show confirmation, I think herding and working breeds need to be able to do the jobs they were originally bred for. Hopefully, someone will change the standard.

YES !!!! cheers bounce cheers Applause

The very best would be, if a group of level-headed people with vetenarian knowledge went through them all, and changed standards where needed !
And also checked the translations, - In Denmark some breds have suffered terribly because the translations were not good enough Crying or Very sad

The adult shepherd is all right.
But I'm not satisfied with the puppy. I do not like the pose of the right front leg, it´s much too stiff.
Also I miss the typical facial expression of German shepherd puppies.
With more light and shade the dogs would perhaps appear more lifelike.
To be honest, only from my point of view, there are German shepherd dog models which convince me more. But perhaps in real they looks much better.
