Thanks Ana for posting!
I confess some cepticism when I received the news about Mojo releasing a wolverine for 2012!
How can such a young brand release a figure of a species that the most known brand released in the previous year and with such sensational result! Not because Schleich wolverine is excelent but because it was a unexpected choice of an unusual figure!
It is possible because Mojo team trusts in their abilities!
Or it would result in a bad choice if it was not as good as it is. I confess I was only able to see how nice the figure was after painted and it was a real surprise. Some figures are hard to understand when not painted!
It is clearly a competent figure and I love it! We know that when a better figure is released it makes the previous look worst than they really are. But I have the Schleich wolverine and I'll keep it, it is not a bad figure, even if it is not as good as the Mojo.
Harriet, sorry, I haven't told you why you should wait some time to take a decision but I must respect the information that the brand sends to me. I'm glad you are happy as well I'm glad seeing the positive feedback the figure is receiving.
Magda, now you have the chance of owning 2 wolverines, I also have the Schleich as I told previously, the Playvisions and I hope someday to find the Bullyland walking one.
Miguel, I don't know the size but almost surely it will be a little smaller but fit with to make a pair with yours.
Alex, I'm very interested in knowing how do you know which brand has the best resin?
Painting is a question of taste, don't you agree? And the best scale, that is easy, Schleich pulverised with all concepts of scale and all brands followed it, even Mojo.
Best scale is from Britains what Schleich makes is a relative or ilusive scale that looks good but is completly wrong! The same for other modern brands!
Susanne, as Carolynn is saying, walking on the whole foot is plantingrade, it is the way bears and humans walk, touching with the sole in the ground. Cats and dogs, for example, walk in a digitigrade way, it means that they use their digits (toes) to walk or standing. There are also unguligrades, that walk on their nails, the most famous are sheep!
Wolverines in fact are able to mix the 2 ways of locomotion, plantingrade and digitigrade and sometimes scientists call it half-plantigrade.
