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

But...but.. Christophe, ...none of the horns look like in that photo Shocked scratch

Yes Susanne, but the pics are here to discuss about the 2012 Mojo Cape buffalo... And not only to choose among Mr First and Mr Second Wink

Please remove the whites around the eyes i dont like that at all...it should just be dark like the rest of the body.....look at the Schleich buffalo.

Thanks for your wonderful topic, Christophe!cheers Also thanks to Mojo for appreciating our comments! Very Happy
It is getting clear what is the preference of the most part of the members.
I was lucky enough to follow the development of this figure and the first pictures I received were already showing a fantastic buffalo with an excelent sculpting and movement!
This replica, in my opinion, shows a really mature male savannah buffalo.
Why a mature male? See the full developed horns, the massive body and the large hump, for example.
The details are characteristics to the level of the subspecies, to the gender and even age. Everything goes well here.
So, the painting should be according with it. This is the darkest of all subspecies, males are usually darker than females unless when they are young what is not the case.
The controversial ring??? See this picture I've received from James:
Many male savannah buffalo develop grizzled white patches around the eyes (this phrase is not mine but present in an important work about the species)
It accentuates the characteristics of the desired figure.
So, fortunately for us collectors, it looks that Mojo Fun knows exactly what they are doing and not copying other brands but replicating real animals!

What is my favourite version? The body of Mr. Second, clearly!
Unclean horns and yes, I like the rings, but more in grizzled than in white. :)

i agree, i like that there is some difference around the eyes, but for some reason the color around Mr 2's eyes seems off. Maybe if it were greyer or a muddier white?

Real animals can get away with a lot that replicas can't, so that what is truly accurate sometimes looks false, or accidental like it was sloppy. Especially grizzling is hard to make realistic, especially with a spray brush and especially when it must be painted quickly for mass production.

But i love this fellow and i will be perfectly happy with either paint job. And if they can do the horns like in the photo Christophe posted!!!!

It looks Mojo already know what to do and the brand will do what people here wanted.
About the size of the figure I haven't yet the measurements but I think it is slightly larger than Papo cape buffalo! :)
