So, ladies and gentlemen, I have the great pleasure to show you the first pics of the 2012 Mojo Cape buffalo... Cool

To become clearer I need to show you two Cape buffaloes from the same mould but with different colours Wink

Why two variations ? confused scratch scratch scratch Well, maybe because Mr James need to know our ideas about it Wink cheers

So... Let's play the game Very Happy

The first one... Maybe we could call him Mr First ?
He has a slightly charcoal body with good highlights and the horn details are highlighted in Greyish colour

My two cents...

It seems whe have the coice between this one ;


And that one :


Most of the modern Cape buffaloes models( SAFARI LTd, PAPO and SCHLEICH) are a mix of Mr First and Second with dark bodies and dark grey horns...
CollectAhave dark horns and more brownish body.

About the Mojo ones, I love them both, Mr Second horns make a bold move but I'm affraid it would be harder to paint and stay realistic...
About the body colour, both of them are less dark than other companies models and I appreciate it.

The first time I watched the pics my heart has beaten faster for Mr First but I guess it was a more 'easy" feeling.

Now, what I would prefer is a Mr Second with more dirty horns. I mean browny horns but as dirty as Mr First horns. I guess it is clear What a Face Laughing

So... What about you my friends ? Very Happy

I would like to go with Mr. Second, with horns of Mr. First. Mr. First has too much body shading for my taste

I prefer the second version with the lighter colour horns but i DONT like the whites around the eyes. I think that is horrible. There should not be whites around the eyes at all.

But also on second thoughts I like the first one too so I am lost. I like both horn colourings. Schleich made a buffalo with creamy coloured horns.

Any chance that some of these new 2012 models could be photographed alongside some Schleich models for comparison? I Would like to see the size differences if possible.

thanks

Thank You for showing photos of Cape buffalo Christophe!! I like Mr Second more :) Maybe just without this white shade around eyes. It would be nice to make this color around eyes brownish or grayish but not white. Anyway my vote is for MR Second Very Happy

Yeah, thanks for the pics!
I'd propose to manufacture both versions - buyers will a have a variety. And it'd be cool to mix them when making some kind of herd. Although the poses are similar, color variations will lend some variety.

first i must say this fellow is so wonderful i will be happy with him in any color. (Well, maybe not pink alien ). He is truly beautiful.

I'm sure Mr James understands that our "critical" comments of 'i like this better than that' or 'i don't like that', are only because we wonder if we're being asked for our opinions on how to make this figure the best it can be! Clearly everyone loves this sculpture!

I do not care for the white around Mr 2's eyes very much. If it were darker, that would be better. I think i also think best would be Mr 2 with Mr 1's horn color. But i will be happy with either.

cheers MOJO!!! cheers

One more great Mojo-model Very Happy

Fantastic sculpture cheers

We already have a lot of votes for mr. Second . And I agree Wink
I would love to see mr Second with mr First`s head Rolling Eyes

Hurray for James to let us look at both versions, it is a fantastic opportunity Very Happy

Thankyou for presenting them, Christophe, I am afraid if it continues like this, I will have to take a loan in the bank next spring Shocked Laughing

Well, it seems Mr Second horns have a very very very small fan club Laughing

O k but I still think it is more interresting than Mr First horns, which looks a lot like SAFARISCHLEICHPAPO horns, more consensual...
I would prefer those kind of horns Wink
