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

So far till now I am only seen Mojofun & Safari associate with us and allow preview by us. For schleich, Papo, Bullyland & Collecta seen very far away from us.

I like this fellow very much because he has something most animal replicas don't have: he has weight. He looks like he needs the ground to support him. He's not just set upon the ground, he is using the ground. Most animal replicas, no matter how well sculpted, don't give the impression of the true mass of the animal because they don't have the right relationship to the earth. This guy looks like you will need a crane to pick him up! cheers

Thanks for the extra pictures Ken - I think his teeth are too white, the colour could be toned down a bit.

I agree

I also agree! I know Carolynn is saying much more than it but I have some crocodiles with the paws not touching perfectly the floor balanced in their stumaches! Laughing Nice point! :)

Here, directly from the factory and according with our suggestions, the new painting of the Mojo crocodile! According with Mojo it will be called Mini Crocobert! pale I have no idea why? scratch Marketing? Idea Wink
In my opinion, it is the most realistic texture of ever in a crocodile, a natural pose and the new painting improoved this feeling even the pictures do not help too much. :)



Here a picture to see that any point of the figure is carefully sculpted! Very Happy

The crocobert is better now and the texture become more marked with that painting.

What about the eyes ?

He looks very nice, lovely sculpting details. Maybe it's just the photo, but the green looks a little bright still.

I think it must be the light. On the picture of his belly, the feet are a more normal colour, - but perhaps we will see better pictures later ? bounce Very Happy

Just look at the table color on both pictures, is it the same table or not? If yes, the first photo could be over contrasted in Photoshop scratch

Another picture arrived directly from the factory!
It is very nice from a brand to show everything so clearly to us even when it contributes to some multiplication miracles! santa
