It is time to introduce a figure from Mojo prehistoric lines. The Deluxe Tyrannosaurus for 2012, another great première in our Forum!
It's a pleasure to introduce a figure full of personality but now is time to follow up your comments! :) Enjoy!

WOW! What a scary T-rex affraid

I don`t know so much about dinoes , but from the books I just borrowed on the library, he has a much more correct head then the ones I have from Bullyland Very Happy
Have they found new data about the TR ?
Or - the Bullylands are only called Tyrannusaurus ( no "rex"), - is there both a T-rex and one that is not a "rex" ?
Sorry if this is a silly question Embarassed

A great model, thankyou very much for sharing cheers flower

Sad I will be the bad guy here but I don't like this Trex, it is maybe deluxe because Mojo sculptor makes very fine detail on this replica but the pose is a bit odd and unrealistic, the arms are far too big, the hands are prognated and they shouldn't and of course the tripod pose is really vintage. No

But ok Mojo, I love your 2012 wildlife animals so much so 2012 will be a great Mojo year Wink cheers

oh, i was thinking the same thing, but didnt' want to say anything b/c i'm not up to date on dino anatomy. Mostly it's the arms that bug me - sculpter was probably trying to reflect latests research that rex's arms were relatively powerful, with large muscle attachments, not useless after all. even if it could lift a couple hundred pounds with its arms, they still wdn't have muscles large enough to compare to the leg muscles, which moved tons. circumference relative to length, i'd think his arm muscles would be more like a human weight lifter's arms. question

come to think of it, he does sort of look like a body builder with all his muscles bulging out. Perhaps his stance is body builder flexing!

Leg muscles that size, wouldn't he need more butt to give those huge things something to attach to?

but i like his head very much. not so much the goth black eye circles, but that's just paint. he's got a great intense stare.
and he's a rex, so he's a king

Now you mention muscels + painting around the eyes, - it just struck me Idea geek that the thing that bothers me is that the muschels are painted on, - or rather the shades are painted on Shocked

I don`t like a lot of shading, any shades should come from the mold of the figure IMHO. Rolling Eyes
Sorry, I have said this before Embarassed

But you are right, the head is really wonderful, correct or not, he is amazing - and just as scary as he should be, even if he is a scavenger Mad Wink alien Very Happy

Christophe, there's no bad boys when we say what we think in a correct way as you are doing! :) Your knowledge and wise comments are a nice contribution to those who wants to read them.
This is a Deluxe figure probably because it is a 1:15 scale replica! What a Face affraid
About the pose I know the actual tendency is to make reconstructions in a more horizontal posture! I also don't like those Godzila but that is not the case here. Dinosaurs were living animals, not statues, they surely were able to adopt some different poses like it happens with actual creatures!
Paleonthology is not Mathematics and dino collectors look at dinosaur replicas as it was an ortodoxe reconstruction of a skeleton and not a representation of a living creature.
I agree with the harms and the tripod pose, but it is not a Vintage pose, or is it Safari a vintage brand? :) scratch
This t-rex remembers me the Papo gnu, some inaccuracies, in fact but a very artistic expression in an impressive figure.
Well, you surely remember my vision about Paleonthology in this topic and also a metaphoric way to express my adventure in a dino forum full of real experts and also of people with fossilized knowledge! I'll be back there but with the user name Crocobert so nobody knows who I am! Laughing

Rogério, I didn't know you had some adventures on DTF, how did I missed that scratch Maybe Sleep Or maybe I spend my time on STS Laughing
DTF is a serious forum with serious dino collectors and STS is a serious forum with serious extant animals collectors Laughing
They talk about replica as we do, sometimes very passionate and sometimes wisely and seriously.
I read and participate in a lot of topics about, for example, PAPO jaguar vs SCHLEICH jaguar, accurate black rhino, the PAPO cheetah red eyes ...
We discussed a few days ago to know what exact specie is the PV skunk Wink
We are learning a lot from each other and I learned a lot about dinos on DTF.
Here we are more cool about dinos because it isn't our first cup of tea but I can't think this is a good Trex when I look at the pics.
Especially a Deluxe one must be more accurate IMHO. This one is a good toy... But not a good replica.
I need to say that because Mojo pay attention to collectors point, also because Mojo wildlife is a big improvement and I'm sad it's not the same with dinos. Maybe Mr James may have to find someone like you on DTF Very Happy

About the tripod pose, you are right, it is the Carnegie and SAFARI ltd curse What a Face But at last, their last Trex is not a tripod one and his hands are not prognated. Very Happy


The big problem with two footed animals is to find a solution to help them standing: A base like the last SCHLEICH ostrich ? A smaller one like the SAFARI Ltd ostrich ? Too big foot like the COLLECTA suchomimus ? A tripod pose like a lot of dinos ? Having a well balanced model is very very hard IMHO Wink

Laughing Laughing Just look at the latter T-rex from Bullyland, - always eating grass and hurting his nose Wink

but there is a 5th solution, as we see on the first TR from Bullyland : a smaller head Very Happy



- perhaps not accurate, but he does not fall on his mose lol! lol!

Hmmm, I wonder how the TRs kept upright whan they were alive scratch scratch

Perhaps they DID support themselves when standing still, using the tail like a kangaroo Rolling Eyes geek

Well, I don't collect dinosaurs and I'm not a dino expert, so I cannot say anything about accuracy. Embarassed But I must say I like this model because of few things: nice texture, nice coloration (he may hide himself into fallen leaves during Autumn Laughing ), and SCARY CHARACTER. In my opinion his pose, and head is full of character what makes him nice toy which can be use for play (maybe somewhat like Godzilla destroying city or something like that Very Happy Laughing )
But of course, dino toys shall be also educative, so if he is not accurate with current science it is not educative Rolling Eyes In future dinos, Mojofun shall do more research, maybe ask our experts for help Idea

Yes, Susanne! You've cought my message! I'm happy! Very Happy Very Happy lol!

Willy, I'm not saying that DTF is not made of serious people. What a Face Why are you thinking it? Suspect Many of us, STS members, are also members there! :) The only point that I'm not agreeing is about the pose and even with my bad English I think I've got it clear! :) I'm not trying to defeat blindly Mojo, that's not my style and you know it! :)
What I'm saying is that there's people with a lot a knowledge, so much knowledge that their heads start getting too heavy and htey have to use the tail to balance theirselves better! Wink
Willy, some brands have the help of some members from there, for example Safari! Do you want a serious review from me about this last Safari T-rex? affraid I'm not an expert, I don't like dinosaurs with heavy heads, but that figure has a lot of flawss, don't you agree? Feet, harms, legs, etc. ...but the subject here is another, isn't it?
Could you please tell me the conclusion about the pv skunk, I've lost my DTF password and I'm not patient enough to pick up my palaeonthologist tools to try to find it again! Wink

Willy ??? scratch Laughing

Roger, i know Willy is also a crazy macaque now but for this was a Kikimalou's post. Wink

Maybe we missed eachother here because of your bad English and my poor english Laughing

Of course you are not blind, even with Mojo, you are open minded and I'm absolutely sure you think DTF members are serious collectors.
My point was DTF members are dinos specialists like STS members are Extant animals specialists.
They have knowledge about Trex as we have knowledge about skunks. The topic was not on DTF and you were the one who showed me the PV skunk could be a hog-nosed... And you were right Very Happy

I don't think people have too much knowledge because IMHO knowledge help us to enjoy better. study

As far as I'm concern, everybody can make a review about every model and I appreciate reviews about SAFARI Ltd as you know.

About the last SAFARI ltd Trex, it is not perfect but at least the arms are in the good position for a theropod, those animals had their hands facing each others like if they wanted to applause cheers

NOT LIKE THIS No Wink


LIKE THIS king

What I'm still saying is I would like Mojo make his dinos as fine and accurate as his wild life models. I'm sure you agree with me Very Happy

Hi Everyone

I have been watching this topic for the past couple of days and I must say i find it somewhat exciting.
Firstly because it seems this model has some character, you either love him or hate him, so that has to be good, doesn't it? question
It is good also to have a great debate and to hear both the good and bad points of a model and that has certainly been discussed in detail by everyone who has participated in the general discussion on old rexy.

Yes I think its true that Mojo have made some mistakes on this chappy and i am sure they have read the forum and taken note of this.
But my personal feeling is that perhaps this model was more of a commercial decision in terms of sales rather than a labour of love such as the Sable or Hippo.
That's not to excuse the mistakes, no, more to explain that perhaps next time a little more care and TLC needs to be applied.

From my side I agree with both sides of the argument, Christophe and Willy make great points and many are accurate, however Anna also makes a very valid point in that most T-Rex's are actually sold to boys who then want to invade the earth and crush their toy soldiers with a Big Mean T-Rex. alien
Not every model will always be so good as gain the full respect of the collectors but remember if that model brings joy and makes someone happy then isnt that the most important thing?

I just wanted to say that i really like this forum, the people on it and most of all I like its honesty.
All comments are good no matter they are positive or negative, after all we only improve through our mistakes right? pirat

My flag is planted firmly in the T rex was a hunter camp!
#1 - binocular vision is a trait of hunters or arboreal creatures.
#2 - it would be total bogus if he were a scavenger!

Lots of other reasons of course, but those are the most convincing. Laughing

Christophe! I'm not an expert of absolutly nothing! I'm not even able to distinguish two different crazy macaques! scratch monkey Rolling Eyes monkey Laughing Why are you explaining me it if I agreed with youabout the harms and hands? I was only talking about the pose, not the hands! Suspect scratch
Are you seeing the pose of the King Papo? :)
Maybe I'm not being friendly with some DTF members??? But I'm able to know to distinguish when a member comes from that forum because of the way they reply to some members with a lower knowledge that are members as valide as others!
Of course that's not a rule and I hate thes kind of rules! :)
Maybe I think that in a hobby like collecting there is a frontier between being serious and excessively serious?
We agree that we want more acurate figures in all lines! That's evident! What a Face Suspect bounce
Poor Kiki be patient with your bad Roger! Laughing

Roger my friend, I explained about the arms because you wrote "this last Safari T-rex? affraid I'm not an expert, I don't like dinosaurs with heavy heads, but that figure has a lot of flawss, don't you agree? Feet, harms, legs, etc. ...but the subject here is another, isn't it?"

But it doesn't matter.

I don't know what happened on DTF, I even didn't notice you were a member of this forum because I don't spend time on DTF since STS creation, I can't be everywhere and STS is my village. I'm sorry if someone hurts you on DTF, I know you are very friendly on STS and it matters a lot Very Happy . Yes I agree with you there is a frontier between being serious and excessively serious, as there is a difference between love and worshipping.
Like Egbert said, I love this forum because we exist for more than 17 months and everybody can see it is a peaceful place, where bad crocs and crazy macaques can live happily together cheers .

PS : about the PAPO rex, I think it is odd... But I love it I love you Wink monkey

I've never posted in DTF and it is not easy to hurt me directly! Evil or Very Mad :lol:It is easier to hurt me when I see members hurting each other! That's the reason why I was a member of 3 foruns during many weeks and decided to start posting here, where people is very friendly! Very Happy
Maybe you are right... I'm not only loving STS but worshipping it.... that's odd, I know, but I love! cheers Wink

After all these worss, i can put my few cts to this theme...
The T-Rex has character in my eyes, that is first.
I am not a dino-expert either, so i can't really tell if there is something wrong with it, but i can recognize it as a T-Rex, and that is for me good enough, i won't buy him anyway... Laughing
I think there are only a few real dino-experts on this world, and even they have their discussions how an extinct animal should look, as we never saw them in real life, not only the overall shape, but colouration and skin-texture to... Rolling Eyes
It would be nice to travel back in time to see how they really looked, but i won't be a volunteer to go into the dino-time, much to dangerous there, bbbrrrrr! affraid

I am very much aware, that scientists do base there thoughts on the build of the sceletons, the way the muscles were attached to it, how big those muscles probably were, the position of the hip-bones(for which way they probably walked), their teeth(for what they probably did eat) and on todays living relatives, and so on...
But you see i used the word probably everytime, because there is nothing really sure about some of those things, and it stays a guess for some bigger parts... Rolling Eyes
It would be shocking to see, that if they found a Brachiosaurus fossil with the complete skin around it, still with intact colouration, turned out to be bright yellow with darkpink spots... Shocked
Actually not even a very strange thought, as they had not to suffer to much from predation, as they were to big for most carnivores...
So they didn't needed a camouflage colouration, it is just a thought...

I learned a lot about the evolution from my tropical fish-hobby...
Almost everything has a logical explanation.
For example...
My favourite fish are those from the big family of cichlids.
All of them do take care of their eggs and offspring in one or the other way.
How more protected the offspring is, the less eggs they produce, how more colourfull the eggs are, the bigger the eggs are, the less young they produce at one time.
Bigger offspring has more chance to survive then smaller ones do.
So the mouthbrooding species are the most moderns, as they can't have to much eggs or young in their mouth, they normally have about 10-40 young at one time, but when they come out of the mouth, they are fully developed, and already 1-1 1/2 cm big, and almost independable.
It is mostly only the mother that takes care of the offspring for some weeks or even days, a so called mother-family.

After that, the cichlids that breed in caves or similar cavities are the most modern, maybe having up to 150 young, still very colourfell eggs, and young that are about 1/2 cm big, with camouflage-colouration when they are leaving the cavities, and lead and protected by both parents in most cases.
Mostly the mother is smaller build, because she has to fit into the cave, the father is bigger to protect the surroundings, a so called mother-father family.

Then there is the big group of the open breeding cichlids, which tend to put their very camouflaged eggs on an underground which is almost the same as the colour of the eggs.
They can have huge numbers of eggs, because they are out in the open, so much change on predation, so automaticly smaller eggs, and so smaller offspring to.
In most cases both parents do look almost the same, as the young have to recognize both parents as theirs, and their size is amost the same to, to prtect the very small fry of about 3 mm.

I just gave you these examples to show you, that evolution has certain strict lines in developing new species, and how they develop, although lots of experiments are going on always, but what is not succesfull, is gone very soon.
So from these strict lines we can start thinking about how dino's developed, and how they did really look, and specially their surroundings, food, predators, and very important..., the choiche of the female of the species formed them at the end, before new species developed from other lines, or even from the same animal.
But it still is a matter of imagination in fossils, but there are some kind of logics in all developed species on this world.
But i think, we "common" people, not specially developed in science, and not having degrees in studying this particular field can only guess in most cases, so why don't we let those people do the job for us, and not doing to much damage to our brains... Wink

Christophe? scratch I was also not talking about you and you know it! I want to see our macaque jumping everywhere! Anyway I will read all posts again and try to understand what is wrong! I'm sorry if I did anything wrong, it was not my intention! pale

Willy, I've found your post absolutly interesting and with an eloquence that is still impossible for me. I agree with everything you've posted there! cheers

After seeing pics, I think the 2012 Papo T-Rex is superior to the Mojo t-rex.

I think Papo is better too! (IMNO).

Those are not comparable figures! Mojo is a large 1:15 scale figure while Papo is probably a 1:40 scale figure.
You can always buy both and make a family! Laughing

Wouldn't they be comparable because they're both t-rex figures?

You can compare what you want, I only thought scales were important for you!
They are not comparable in terms of market but of course as species you can and should compare them, mainly when you have fun doing it! :)

Scale is super important. However, in this case, only comparing to other t-rex figures, not comparing it to how it looks with other dinos.
