Swans are beautyful ! cheers
They are also large and powerful, - as a child I was really scared of them, because one attached my dog What a Face

But I am not scared of them any more, - not more scared than I am of tigers Wink

I was vary happy to get hold of the mute swan from Mojo and here are some pictures of a WONDERFUL model .. this is perhaps the model I like best of the swan-models I have Very Happy

As white models are difficult ( for me Rolling Eyes ) to take pictures of in sunlight, I have tried to use a grey background and artificial light. Sorry if it is a little boring Wink













Here to compare, - CollectA, Mojo and Schleich.


Isn`t it amazing how different they are ?
Same bird, almost same pose, and still so very unlike each other Very Happy

I only wished that we would see more species of swans, - the whooper swan, for instance.
* Here * you can see some other, beautyful swans, - or links to them :)

Ah, Susanne! Thanks for showing these scaring creatures! I always wanted a comparison picture between the Mojo and CollectA swan. I confess I have a huge admiration for the CollectA figure, surely my favourite CollectA before Mojo era. It is good to see that the Mojo is unless as nice and that's a good news for us, collectors.
I like new species but I don't mind to see the same species when they have quality. And as I always remember, CollectA and Mojo only released a single swan while other better stablished brands are always making the same swan species in a repeated way. :)

Congratulations Susanne! Beautiful newcomer! I love swans too I love you

I would love to see some more species as well You are 100% right about it! Very Happy Trumpeter swan, Whooper swan or black necked drunken I think Black swans were available from brands Papo and Science and Nature, Whooper swan also from Kayiodo but other species I haven't seen as a figures yet Sad

Unfortunately Papo black swan is a black mute swan!: Science & Nature is really a black swan. Very Happy

I'm a little intimidated by swans actually. Because they always start hissing and they're so huge : D

But really, these figures are stunning! And really beautiful!

The CollectA might be my favourite : )

Oh my, he's beautiful and just flew onto my wishlist - I love the paintwork. Congratulations Susanne cheers Thank you for the great photos.

Swans can be very dangerous, they can easily break your arm - I've heard of some people being badly injured because of getting too near their nests or young. They are extremely protective birds.
I'm wary of them too, they're such big birds, you don't want to mess with them! Shocked

Very nice new swan Susanne! Thanks for sharing the pictures. I'm very impressed, it looks like it has great detail...might not be able to hiss my CollectA of his spot on the shelf though! Wink

We talked about the black swans, so I have tried to take pictures of the 3 that I have Rolling Eyes

From left : Safari, Science & Nature, and Papo.

None of them are perfect, but the least accurate is the Papo one, - Black swans have white swing feathers, like the Safari swan has.

Only the S & N swan has the ruffeled feathers on the rump, and only the Safari one has the white tip on the beak Wink

That's very interesting watching the black swans altogether! :)
I confess I almost bought the Papo black swan the first time I saw it in shop due to its spectacularity but inf fact the only in my wish list is the S&N. Very Happy

It seems like I didn't check the Mojo topics for a while, otherwise I wouldn't miss this great swan. Still no Mojo in my collection, but this one looks very tempting. Just checked on MPV, not available yet. Sad
