I want again say thanks to all, I'm following all of your comments and good ideas! Idea
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!

thank you Susanne flower

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! :)

That's a very interesting and apealing idea from Lucky Luke's Studio but I'm affraid the 2 pieces would increase a lot the production cousts and also turn it much harder. :)
I think also that the figure would be commercially more atractive but that's not a very natural pose for a sloth. I believe they cannot walk like this and as Ralf commented before, babies are commonly found in ventral side of the mother and that's curious that sloth hair curves from stumach to back in opposition to most mammals. Very Happy

It is with a huge pleasure that I share with all members of this forum the first pictures of an earlier stage of the development of the new Mojo 2013 Southern two-toed sloth! Very Happy Very Happy
I must say again thanks to James and Mojo for giving us such an amasing experience that I believe all members will enjoy.
You can find more information about the project Clicking here! study :)
Now it is our turn to show how collectors can be important in the development of a figure helping the brand turning it apealing and accurate. Very Happy Very Happy cheers
Feel free to download the pictures and give us your feedback, Mojo will follow! :)

I have to say, I feel ridiculous even considering the idea of giving feedback, because the figure is so lovely -- so well sculpted and so well-designed.

Also, I don't know how the process works. Would someone actually take suggestions and then resculpt? If resculpting is an undesirable option, I don't even want to sound like I am anything but utterly thrilled by the model as it is and I'm really looking forward to having it! Because I am: I am indeed completely thrilled by the model as it is and I am in fact really looking forward to having it. It is very impressive. As is.

That said, the only constructive feedback I would give is this: In all the pictures and films of sloths -- two-toed in particular -- that I've seen, they slouch. This one is very upright.

I hate myself for having even noticed that, let alone said it. But if Mojo really wants to hear our thoughts, then that was a thought that occurred to me. Aside from than that though, there was nothing much else in my head but awe and delight.

Philip I'm curious to hear more about your concern. I think my concern about the slouching (see above) is a concern about the pose. But aside from that specific element, I think the overall pose is fantastic. My view is that the pose is a great solution to a difficult problem. (The Problem: How to make a sculpt that will look nice resting on a toy store shelf, when it is a sculpt of a creature that is almost always hanging upside down from tree branches.) Mojo's solution is to put it in a tree and have it clinging to branches -- in other words, it looks natural -- but it is also a sculpt that will sit on a shelf and look nice. But that's my own first impression. I want to hear different viewpoints.

So I'm really interested to hear more from you. And I mean this as a very friendly invitation.

(and don't cry!) Very Happy

Very Happy
I don't cry. You already answered your own question: an animal that is usually hanging arould in trees looks odd when it's posing like a monkey,...So an exceptional pose is.....an exceptional pose.
I'd prefer a hanging sloth, with or without trunk. A figurine you could hang wherever you want without making it look unnatural!
sloths are very popular at the moment and i can imagine buyers putting it into their living room plants!
I also like sloths and unfortunately i still don't have the Hausser one as it's still best in my eyes.

Thanks people, I see that before reviewing the details is still in discussion the gravity problem.
That's not a finished figure and we have the chance of giving our opinions turn turn it even better.
This 3-toed sloth found a way to be sitting in a school desk and we can study a way to make it look more natural if it really doesn't look. Scott pointed a very interesting detail, those are shelf figures and not boxed figures. The same reason why we know so many other figures with spread legs, simple poses, legs with different lengths, hooves with irregular shapes, we have the chance to help the brand finding a good compromiss between our wishes and a good product for the company! cheers

You already answered your own question: an animal that is usually hanging arould in trees looks odd when it's posing like a monkey,...So an exceptional pose is.....an exceptional pose.
I'd prefer a hanging sloth, with or without trunk. A figurine you could hang wherever you want without making it look unnatural!
sloths are very popular at the moment and i can imagine buyers putting it into their living room plants!
I also like sloths and unfortunately i still don't have the Hausser one as it's still best in my eyes.

I understand; that all makes sense Philip. Thank you! Very Happy

I also think the Hausser is amazing. The Sloth there looks great. I hope you get it! Very Happy

A good friend of mine said : Don`t wish your life away", - so I won`t wish it was 2013 soon, - but.... I look SO much forward to getting that sloth Laughing Laughing

Yes, I also am almost sure that it is the deinotherium, that's not a secret that Mojo is releasing a Deinotherium to be launched in 2013. Mojo is giving us a bonus! elephant
But the focus is the sloth. So, if we are able of giving our imput in a timely way I'm sure more projects will follow! bounce Very Happy

Hello Roger and thank you very much with the info. I think there are some items to improve to the figure. For me the body seems really well made. If changing the pose is not possible I think the head must be smaller and not so ... i don't know how to say it in English, but as Scott said sloths pose must be lazier.
i don't know if that's correct but I modified with photoshop some pictures. If its not right I will edit and erase the pictures :)
In the pictures I'm expressing what i want to say:







Maybe the back must be more curved too because the "new" head position

Hey guys, I think I can offer some ideas because there are some sloths on the neighborhood I live (in fact, a cousin of mine literally has one of them living in a tree in front of in her bedroom's window).
Sloths do basically two things their whole life: they sleep and eat. When sleeping, they really go upside down for hours... BUT when they feed (or climb), they enjoy a good sitting. So, the position is not absurd.
With all due respect, I don't like it looking down, "lazier" position. Inspite the name, they are not lazy at all, They do look downward, but it is not common (there isn't much for them on the floor). They prefer to look upwards, because there are the leaves they need.
I enjoyed the prototype Mojo presented, and I'll gladly place it in my collection, but the pose is, indeed, unnatural. If it's a problem, a good option would be placing its head upwards over one shoulder (pretty much like an egyptian figure) and, if possible, rasing one of its arms, as if it was trying to get a leaf or found a branch and is moving towards it. When they they do such moves they even strecht their claws, which would certainly give character to the figurine.
That's something near what I'm thinking:
