PostSubject: Mojo 2013 Sloth (STS) Project   Sat Jun 02, 2012 2:42 am

As most of you know Mojo already developed some figures with teams composed of STS members but this time Mojo was brave enough to share the complete development of a figure with all members of the forum.
I think that's an exciting experience and it will be fantastic to follow all the steps neccessary to make an animal replica, exactly what we collect! Very Happy
That's not an easy task, once the species is a Southern two-toed sloth (Choloepus didactylus] - you can read about it in this Wikipedia article. study cheers
Now than the species is known, the next step is to choose a pose that would result in the concept of a modern brand replica.
Although they are almost always in trees, I believe Mojo will not release a sloth attached to a branch, so our participation starts here, showing pictures of this animal in a nice pose for Mojo and for us! Very Happy
I'd loved to see many members participating, even those who doesn't collect these kind of creatures, There is much more than knowledge behind a good figure and that's a tremendous experience to all animal lovers! I love you

A big thanks to Mojo and to all collectors who will contribute to turn this project in what we want, a wonderful toy! flower

What an amazing creature!

I'm having a hard time finding any photos of the sloth that is NOT hanging on a branch. If Mojo can capture the facial expression of the photo you just posted then the pose will be irrelevant to me! :)

I'm having the same experience Kristie reported: I can't seem to find a picture of southern two-toed (or pretty much any type of sloth), where it isn't hanging from a tree. I found a video of what I think is two linnaeus's two-toed sloths in those little travel boxes for pets (like cats and such) and even there, they were resting on their backs, holding on to a little bar strung across the top of the box.

(The link is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/carnalcontessa/5561946443/in/set-72157624466744364/

I've found a few pictures of three-toed sloths dragging themselves on the ground and across roads, but they look incredibly awkward and ridiculous. The best one is this one:


Again, this is a three-toed sloth, however.

So is this one, but I like the pose; even though it is in a tree, it seems like something doable.


Another three-toed, I believe; this time running. I can't imagine this would be what people would want (that is, an uncharacteristically-posed, dynamic, sprinting sloth...)


And then here is a sitting sloth -- and I'm pretty sure it is a two-toed, but not sure if it is linnaeus's or hoffmann's:


From the point of view of making a figure though, it's kind of just an amorphous ball.

In terms of a pose, right now I'm leaning towards something along the lines of the pose we see in the second picture above (second from the top), with the animal sitting on the ground instead of in a tree, and its arm stretched out, resting on the ground (instead of clinging to the branch, as it is in the picture).

That is a really, really brave project , - and a wonderful project !!!! cheers

Only,- isn´t it a bit strange to make a sloth that does not cling to something?
As Scot writes, it is almost impossible to find pictures where they are om the ground.
They are simply not made for it scratch

They look scared and almost pathetic without a branch Rolling Eyes




Here is a link to one more http://www.flickr.com/photos/15016964@N02/3878960184/

But a solution could be to make them so that they can hang on a finger or a stick Very Happy
I found this one . Could it be an inspiration ?

Thanks to all! I really love some of the suggestions. IT is a hard task as I told and probably we will find a climbing one a more interesting solution. Anyway I already like some of the pictures here posted. Scott and Susanne, your ideas are great! It is natural that they look scared out of branches once they are very vulnerable in that circunstance and they rarely are out of trees. :)
Clicking here you can see in Christophe's website sloths from other brands, none of them is a Southern 2-toed sloth but helps us to have an idea. Idea I mean those aftter Schleich one because previous are prehistoric. :)
I appreciate your help and more suggestions are very welcome! Very Happy

This is wonderful! I find Sloths fascinating.

The Playvisions on Christophe's site is a good pose. Would be great if Mojo could make it sitting or hanging on a branch, that would be fantastic bounce

I agree of course, PLAYVISIONS and HAUSSER are excellent sloths Cool I'm very proud of them. Nevertheless, I must say I prefer the HAUSSER, not because of an artistic superiority (they are both excellent) but because of the branch and realistic pose.

A modern sloth replica must be realistic and a sloth without a branch is a little bit like a flying reindeer, a Santa creature Laughing

I agree the " ground walking" pose is really odd... But what about the " erected arm" pose ? Like those one




Have a look at the web and you will find more "ground walking" pics than "erected arm" ones. It is definitively not modern for me, odd too, something like : We don't want to make a branch so... We find a half realistic and half fantasy pose.

IMHO, the Japanese manufacturers are very modern indeed, it's time for Western manufacturer to be so. If an animal is living on a branch, the replica too Wink

A very interesting :) but also difficult scratch project...
...I can only agree with Christophe. If a sitting posture with raised arms, then only
with tree branches.
A sloth must hang or sit in a tree branch, I think.
A natural pose without branches in my opinion would be just sitting and then usually sleeping or on the floor possible, which I'm with Susanne's opinion, that it seems a bit strange and not an attractive pose is for sale to customers.
One possibility would be for example a sloth with a removable tree branch that can be used simultaneously as a game environment.
I have been to many sloths in zoos seen and photographed, a proposal might still be with a baby? Is surely very appealing, too for the sale. Wink

Good news folks!
For my part I find interesting compromise between PLAYVISION 1999; And the idea of ​​Yurumi with a young on their backs!
We need the claws are well curved Technical Info to have the choice to do it move on land or hang from a branch

First, I want to say thank you to Mojo, It's great that they appreciate collectors input and it's a very exciting prospect!!

For me, a sloth must be hanging on a branch.

I think the Hausser pose is the pose to work around. But I assume if Mojo don't want to have a branch then this will be because of the extra materials used?

Even so, for me, a sloth must be hanging off a branch :)

Hey Luke,
very nice work, I just believe that sloth babies hold on more on the belly of the mother, than on the back...or scratch scratch scratch ???

Such a fantastic idea! Its so nice of Mojo to listen to the collectors ideas and wants! Very Happy
As far as the position of the sloth, it does seem awkward to have a sloth on the ground. Maybe they should just make a removeable branch like Yurumi said. Very Happy

Hello friends.

Firt of all a big thank you to Mojo and to Roger cheers it's very very nice that brands ask to collectors for that questions.
I think I'm being late to say something because I'm totally agreed with somebody who posted before:

@Kikimalou wrote:

But as Ralf says:

@Yurumi wrote:

I want to say anything else (now without "quotes" Laughing ): one important thing for me (and for other collectors) is the scale (yes I now, that question). I hope the replica will be a smaller figure than the wild republic sloth What a Face A half of wild republic's one size maybe?

I'm very proud of the members of this forum and as soon as I have some feedback from Mojo I'll let you know.
You can of course give ideas of sloths in branches, I only told that I believe Mojo will make it without branch but that's only a thought. scratch Looking forward to see more suggestions and ideas! bounce

Koalas spend almost as much time in trees than sloths and I'm glad Mojo hasn't released it without branches. Lik some monkeys too! monkey Very Happy
I think Christophe that you mean that sloths in the ground don't look confortable not even apealing. scratch
Also we are collectors and we love to see the figures in shelves and a sloth in a branch looks much better than dragging. We don't mind with the playability of a figure But, we are collectors and Mojo wants our opinion so we are going in the correct way, I guess. Wink monkey

Yes we are collectors... We are collecting toys indeed Laughing All those sloth, even the HAUSSER are or were toys made for children. I played with the STARLUX when I was young and it was a toy Wink .

About Koalas and sloths, the main difference is Koalas are living on branch and Sloths under... It is a BIG difference. A natural position for a sloth is head upside down.

Thank Mojo to appeal to collectors. cheers I love you
I personally think a logical parresseux that can cling to the branch of a tree as a base, but can easily free themselves and be put next to it!
for the realization and molding cella faciliterais production!
It remains q'à find a good compromise,
posture to adapt to the sculptors?
Also many collector does not like the bases ...... or elements fused to the figurine!

Laughing Lucky it is surely once crossing a road is more dangerous than crossing Mara river. affraid
Those are unusual creatures and I love unusual things. Mojo already have a choice for a pose according with our comments. I'll let you know as soon as it is confirmed. Very Happy
As long as we are waiting I want to show how cute are these creatures, who wants to take care of sloth babies?

I think including a branch where the animal could be hanging would be a great idea! And very realisti.

Thanks for the video Roger.

And thanks for the picture Susanne...I think that this would be my favourite pose ahead of all the other options given the choice. I would like the idea of attaching some cord to my shelving unit and have the sloth hanging off it.

Also, thanks Mojo for involving us in your project, I'm sure that whatever decision is made, will result in a brilliant replica!

Look forward to hearing more

SLOTH POSE
So we have already a pose choice due to the effort of STS members. cheers
After reading this topic Mojo agreed with this pose here posted by Scott! Very Happy
I'll share with you this question:
""So what about something similar to scots Image 2, and we place him on the fork of a Tree, so we do a minimal tree base just for effect but keep it low profile and then sit the figure directly on it like he would be in the wild?"
Let me know your thoughts... bounce


As Scott remembered That's a 3-toed sloth and the Mojo figure will be a Linnaeus two-toed sloth.
We have to wait 3 or 4 weeks to see the first mould pictures but it will be exciting surely. As long as we wait we can continue commenting and discuss the figure. :)
Thanks again for your help. cheers

That's great! I'm really glad they have chosen to include some tree in the model. I think this will be a really nice piece, looking forward to seeing the mould!!!

that is great news! It's really wonderful that Mojo is allowing us to participate. Thank you, Roger, for relaying the information.

I'm curious about how much the tree will be playing a role/be present in the figure. (For example, are they imagining that one of the sloth's arms will be holding on to a branch? like the three-toed sloth in the picture above?)

Also, I'm glad two-toed sloths don't have tails (they don't, right?), since the tail is the weirdest-looking aspect of the picture above.

This is very exciting!! Thank you for all the updates!

Scott, thanks but all thanks are for all members that are participating in this tread and taking its precious time to help! See the ingenious work of Jean-Luc, the picture Susanne posted, Ralf pictures of 2-toed sloth and all other contributions including yours. cheers I don't want to charge the topic saying thanks anytime someone posts but that's waht I feel. My joy is to know that people enjoy and that it turns in a interesting experience to the members of this forum. Very Happy
I still don't know how the tree will play with the figure but surely the animal will not have a tail for the reason you correctly referred. Very Happy That's a very hard project, it will be hard to find pictures of the correct sloth in that pose from several angles to make the best possible. Anyway we know Mojo is a competent brand and that together with us the final work will be great! :)
