lol!

I will love to see this!! But it could be costly to do this!!

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

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

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

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

Like Scott says, it COULD "hang" a bit more ( I can`t spell slor..slou..hang Wink ). But I will LOVE it all the same cheers

Roger, you must tell that sloth that it is not healthy for his back to slo..sla..hang..too much at the computer ! Suspect Suspect 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:

I like him! I don't know a lot about Sloths, but his head and neck position look much like the little schoolboy Sloth. Mojo has a slight hint of a smile. I think he needs a bigger smile. :)

Thanks for the info! I think this model looks wonderful. I just think he shoudnt look like he is so alert. They are lazy animals and to bend the back a little would make it perfect! Very Happy

By 'slouch' I meant exactly what others have said -- that is, to have the back more curved. If I'm understanding Joan's suggestion (and photoshopped pictures), it is to put the head lower (and not actually make the head smaller). That makes the spine curve (and the sloth slouch). As Kristie puts it, he looks a bit like a proper schoolboy. In America, sometimes we smack teenagers and tell them not to slouch so much. (Kidding about the smacking.)

I like what ze_neto (José, right?) said a lot though. If the animal were somehow reaching slightly, that might be perfect. In any case, it doesn't need to look lazy to look more relaxed. And most importantly, I think it looks great as it is. I think many of us clearly think it's wonderful, but that, when we are being asked to be critical, we have noticed that the figure looks a bit more upright in its posture than we would expect from a sloth. A "reaching" pose might solve this problem.

A lot of things, good things Wink , have already been said about the pose and I can agree with Scott, José...

My problem, yes I have one, is the head I guess. I was searching for a few days now and maybe I find what disturbed me first. I really like the big snout of this unau model but maybe the eyes need to be a bit bigger and closer to the snout ?

Nevertheless, a looking upward head would be great Wink

Not sure, but I almost feel that maybe the head should tilt a little bit to one side, like it is considering moving, or a leaf to eat. The reaching is a good suggestion. I just love the fur detail! Very Happy

Very cute!

I agree with Christophe, the eyes need to be lower down, nearer the snout and slightly bigger too. I love Joan's customising work.

I'm agreed with Christophe.
seeing the pictures Christophe post I think the snout is too bulky and too sunken eyes. It would seem better if the whole face was flatter, without so much relief.
I think also that Ze comments are very useful.

I vote for the tilted head and raising arm.
Plus the head looks bizzarely unnatral. Change the eyes and possibly the facial hair.

I am very impressed by the comments, but also a little confused, esp about the face. scratch

Are we all remembering that we are talking about * the southern two toed sloth * ?

José, WOW! You have these lovely and strange creatures where you live affraid
Well, of course SOMBODY have them around, - to me sloths are like a fairytale, so it is an eye-opener to realize that you do Laughing

I will never forget once I visited some friends in USA, and they had both a possum and a racoon in the garden now and then Laughing Laughing

Susanne, I live close to a piece of the Atlantic Forest, so many animals can be spotted. In my backyard there are some opossums and marmosets; there are caymans on a nearby canal There are some squirrels on the forest, but unlike those of Northern Hemisphere they're totally shy almost never show themselves.
I really like the sloths. They're lovely animals and, as I said before, not lazy at all.

Thanks to all that are helping in the review, I'm sure we will end all proud of our contributions. Joan, good photoshops are very appreciated in Mojo Kingdom! Very Happy
Next days my free time will be very limited so here goes my humble contribution. Very Happy

POSE
Although it was not my favorite pose once I wanted it walking or dragging I must say that I like the sitting pose, it is even more common than the pose I wanted. 2-toed sloths are nocturnal mammals and as José pointed they usually take a good sitting to eat. It happens often in sloths life but, as two-toed sloths are nocturnal creatures obviously it is hard to find pictures of it. The sitting pose is a good choice for us and the brand now we must find a way to make it look natural. They seem to find a sitting pose that makes them to look like a nest as you can see in some pictures previously here posted. That's the pose we need to work and we are happy seeing a modern brand making a sloth. Very Happy

Proportions
As it is hard to find pictures matching the pose it is also hard to judge the proportions. The head looks some big to me, however we don't know the size of the figure and the head would turn too small to make a detailed face.
Two-toed sloths have all limbs almost the same size in opposition to three-toed sloths but I think only Mojo can check it. To me it looks the arms are longer than the legs but it can be only illusive.

Snout
When we cannot see the claws on forelimbs we can distinguish both genus of sloths by the lack of a tail in 2-toed sloths or seeing the snout. As Susanne pointed correctly, 2-toed sloths have somewhat proeminent snouts being not as flatened as in 3-toed. So if we enshorten it too much we loose one of the characteristics of this creature.

EYES
I also agree that eyes need to be larger and closer to the snout. Maybe not placing the eyes lower on face but the snout in a higher on a more central position in relation to the head. Also the eys need to drop like surrounding the snout but first we need to get a good pose and proportions and I'm sure the details of the face are the last to be developed.

FUR
I think the work with the fur is very good, the inversion of the fur is correctly done and the hairs are long enough once 2-toed sloths have them longer than 3-toed sloths.

Some pictures of 2-toed sloths


My favourite pose, Hoffmann's



Hoffmann's face - very similar

Thank you for sharing the pictures Roger cheers This is a really exciting project! I greatly admire Mojo for their collaboration with us collectors!

Yes, well, I still think I would prefer hanging pose but I'm getting use to this sitting one. I think it is good. And after small changes on face and perhaps neck, as our friends suggest, this model will be really amazing I think Very Happy
