PostSubject: Mojo Fun scale   Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:07 pm

Does anyone know if Mojo uses a standard scale for the figures they make? Is it like the other brands where the hippo that is so perfect of a sculpture will be way too small when standing next to the zebra or will it be a massive figure that will make us animal collectors proud? I know that cost is a big deal, these are made for toys I realize, but I would like a scale hippo at some point if possible.

The same holds true for the sable, does anyone know what the size or scale is at this point?

What scale are the figures that they have already produced done in? Is it a standard scale for all of the woodland figures, or the wildlife figures, are they both the same? If anyone has some of these could you please post some photos here next to Schleich figures? I would greatly appreciate that and I'd love to see what they look like in comparison.

Phil, I started some time ago a discussion about scales and it obtained not too much enthusiasm. It was a surprise for me! :(I understand what you mean but to be in scale with a Schleich zebra is nothing. Many of us use it as in scale but anyone is free to use the figure one wants. The most part of Schleich figures are not in scale with the Schleich zebra! How can we talk about something in scale with Schleich???
Well, you are asking Mojo. Mojo is a brand that has the same philosofy of Schleich and CollectA. Larger figures, smaller scales and smaller figures in larger scales. So, the most part of Mojo figures are in scale with Schleich and CollectA.
The sable is a 1:20 figure, completly in scale with Schleich human figures but the hippo is smaller than the Papo, maybe slightly bigger than the Schleich. I'm not sure because I still don't have it. I think it is a 1:25 scale that is the scale of Schleich crocodile, for example.
There are some differences in sizes, the Mojo tiger is in scale with the Papo tiger and not the Schleich. The hyena is larger than the Schleich but smaller than the Safari but the beaver is clearly smaller than the Papo.
Anyway it is much more ilusive than in Safari where often we see in the same series a smaller animal being larger than a large animal. For example, in Safari the giant panda is larger than the grizzly bear. Or in Papo where the kudu is a monster compared to the buffalo.
I think the sable is nice for your dioramas but nobody has it to show pictures of the size. I'll try to find some measurements for you. Very Happy

Roger: I've given up on the scale/"relative" scale discussion...
I look at my Britain zoo/farm animals with a smile on my face, and admire their "relative proportion" and wish that I had my Papo/Safari just like that...

Yes, Balty! I agree, but I don't believe a brand will ignore all their releases and suddenly turn all the new figures in scale. But I think that it is possible have some small series with figures in scale. But if I try to think as a developer, I cannot think in wich scale.
It looks figures are more around 1:20, 1:22, the sable is a 1:20 so it is a nice way to start. I'm sure if a brand makes it and it is a success, all brands will follow. It happens in many other kind of replicas.

Yeah, it would be nice if a modern brand would use only one scale too indeed, but i lost that wish many years ago i am afraid, and gaze at my old Britains models to... Rolling Eyes farao

Perhaps the problem is that if a brand wants both small and large animals in scale, either the small ones would be almost invisible or the large ones HUGE. Shocked

Noah`s pals has some of them in scale. The rabbits are tiny, but even if the elefant is large, they obviously gave up having it completely to scale. Rolling Eyes
Welll, they never calimed they would Wink



I have never seen a Britains elefant "live". Or a Britains rabbiit for that matter. Does anybody have those and can show them together Very Happy

Roger, I think it was a good initiative to start the scale-subject, but honestly most of us don`t seem care much about scale between species scratch
I admit I am one of these weird persons Embarassed
Perhaps it is because we were used to imagine the size from the toys of our childhood scratch

The Noah's Pals aren't perfect in scale, but better than other brands! But I can deal with it, because at least it's an attempt at "relative scale". Other companies would make the kinkajou's 3 times as big...

Susanne, in the photo you've shown the female elephant, the male is larger then she is. There are species of rabbits that are fairly large, Noah's Pals are done in 1:24 scale and although I have not actually measured and worked out the scale they are the most consistent in size compared to each other.

Thanks for showing these figures Susanne! I've spent some time seeing the measurements of Noah's paws figures, since they work in 1:24 scale but nothing is better than see them together! When I asked for a scale for modern brands I was not thinking in me but in brands and those who work with dioramas. How can we work with figures in scale if the only modern scale people talks is the Schleich scale that don't exists? If I was a developer of a brand I will never know which scale to use. :)
See in this picture that I'm not crazy about scales even I think they are useful and informative. I love the Britains because they are honestly sculpted and in scale. And it is much more pleasant to see your picture than mine! Wink

Because Susanne talked about it, i made some quick pictures of my 2 Britains elephants with the Timpo Toys rabbits i have.
Britains only made some rabbits made from the former Herald mould, and they are very hard to find...
But the scale is the same, so judge yourself...


Britains first African elephant with Timpo Toys rabbits


Britains second Asian Elephant with Timpo Toys rabbits


Both...

Thanks Susanne.
I wish i could make wide-range pictures, but i don't have the camera for that.
I do have a better camera on my newest Samsung Galaxy II now as you can see, but i can't make real panorama pics.
Because in that case, i could make a picture of my Britains wildlife together, so everybody could see the scales together... Rolling Eyes

Hi Willy,

I have the Britains Herald rabbit and it it much smaller than those Timpo ones. It's only the size of a fingernail. That's the wild rabbit. The domestic rabbits are somewhat larger but still, I think, in good scale to the rest of the animals and people. By Britains own admission, the only things that weren't 1:32 scale were the trees which are 1:64. Oddly enough, Schleich's trees are 1:32 scale.

I can't make any photos because my camera is dead.

Scale 1:20 means the model is 20 times smaller than the original.

How to know a scale of a model, measure it and compare to the size of a real animal, if you want to be very precise, compare the lenght, height, shoulder height and sometimes you will have big surprises.

The formula is : Size of the real animal divided by the size of the model = the scale of the model Wink

That's about the same scale as collectA's horses, is it? Or are they bigger scratch
