PostSubject: Mojo 2012 releases - Crocodile   Sat Oct 29, 2011 4:34 am

Yesterday Roger send me a photo for viewing & out of surprising is the Crocodile for 2012. My immediate feeling is another cros. However I find the texture is nice and with a common pose. Let's view it.



I don't know whether this is finalized or still fine tuning.

Ok Ken you are right : another croc alien

But each major, and even outsider have a croc in their line, I can't see Mojo avoiding it, just like elephants, lions...

The pic is too small but the croc looks fine, open mouth, the teeth seem sharp and it is on the realistic side of toys.

Since PAPO made his second croc, the level of competition is very high. Cool But I guess this one is not coming last. Laughing

Conclusion : WE NEED MORE PICS cheers

I think it is good, I mean it dosent hurt to have another croc on the market. I will probably still get it along with the other MOJO animals.

I like him, nothing can beat Papo's of course, but I think he's very nice.

I think I may be a little spoiled with crocodilles . Like Christophe says, the one from Papo is amazing, - but also HUGE !

But this little picture indicates a nice croc, and one is certainly needed in the range of Mojo wild animals alien Wink Very Happy

Thankyou, Ken for showing flower Very Happy

Fine croc, thank You for showing Ken! I also think It would be nice to have closer pics :) .
About colors I think if it's Nile crocodile it would be nice if color is somewhat lighter olive green/grey with darker spots and yellowish belly. Maybe also striped tail alien

Properly croc pose is not easy to present. And if there is more photo I will post it. As you mentioned that Papo is making another one. We shall see, speculate and comment later. Of course this will not come to last.

He´s not the best (we all know Papo have the best one) but not bad... maybe Mojo could make him in different pose. Crocs are very flexible and this one could be more flexible too. But he is fain... :)

At first glance it looks nice! a beautiful mouth and we can distinguish good teeth,
we must see the color and details of the body and pasta §
scales performed well at first sight a good figure that out with the irrational Hippo!

At first I thought he's nice but I wasn't impressed much. But the more I look at him, the more I like him :)
But Papo croc is still my favourite Razz

I know it looks an egocentric thought but I'm very happy seeing Ken introducing Mojo croc in my birthday. For those who doesn't know, it was Ken who introduced me in this forum!!! Ken is our introducer of crocs! Laughing

I think all of you are right about the figure. A crocodile in Mojo range is obvious. Anyway crocs are very hard to make, we have the wonderful Papo crocodile but it was their second try and in a larger size and much more expensive.
So this crocodile should be compared with those from Schleich, CollectA, Safari, etc.
The pose is in fact the worst point of this figure. Some animals are rare in the market and any pose is welcome, but crocs are commonly replicated.
The only problem of this figure is not only the wonderful Papo but also the high level of other Mojo figures already presented for 2012.
I know the figure and I can warrant that it is the best in texture and with great proportions! The painting is not yet finished and I hope Mojo follows Ana's suggestions! That description is perfect considering the characteristics of the species here replicated, the Nile crocodile. :)
More pictures are promised! :)

That sounds wonderful, Croger, that Mojo may change the colour and perhaps follow Ana`s suggestions flower

I like the croc, but the colour is rather dark and dull, whereas crocodiles have beautyful skin, - don`t they ??? Shocked Wink

WONDERFUL, if we can get larger/better pictures bounce cheers

I would prefer a croc with closed mouth.

Thank You for more photos Ken :) I like the texture of this croc very much, and his face expression is also nice. Nice detail is skin under his jaw pirat I think new colors will help him and then he will become very very good figure cheers

Thanks Ken for posting more pictures of the crocodile! Which other brand in the market would pick a finished figure and waste more time working to please collectors opinions? Unfortunately not many others are making it. Maybe Safari?
My comments are the same of Anna, proportions and texture are correct, the pose is a regular pose for a crocodile, nothing more to add but the colouring should be according with an adulte Nile crocodile so Ana picked it correctly! :)
You cannot see here but Mojo sculpts every point of the figure, even the bottom part is very detailed.
Thanks Mojo again for hearing us! cheers
