I wasn't expecting it for the last one (I thought it would be Takin made by Anna! well maybe next year).
That tail is just wonderful and the face wow! Now the path is open for other brands too to start making smaller cats as well (Ocelot, Caracal, Serval..) not just the regular big ones.
Well done, Mojö!

Really nice, Moyo made a cat which looks like similar to a clouded leopard, but unfortunately, it just looks like one, too bad, tehy didn't made really a clouded leopard.

So I think, I should send them pcitures of clouded leopards, so can they see, how this species is looking, so maybe they will recognize, they made a totally wrong body,a wrong colour and wrong spots, and whats worse-its smiling !

Mojo made a really good step in the right direction doing great and unuasally species-now thyy have to do the next step, to make GREAT and realistic looking figures of them-maybe in a couple of years. I hope, they will do then better models of the same specis......

Not all of their figures are bad, but this one is of them worse models from Mojo,also the honey badgers:cry:

And no, I'm NOT to strong with them, just dissappointed.

I've always wondered if those Kaiyodos were actually meant to be Clouded Leopards. I mean, I know they're often sold as that, but I don't know how that fits with the Animals of Japan theme. However, I've also seen them listed as Leopard Cats, with the black one listed as an Iriomote Cat.

I mean, the tail on those figures is really short if that's actually a clouded leopard. I'm not saying it's not a clouded leopard - I'm just saying that it seems like a really obvious mistake for Kaiyodo to have made.

And besides, I also own those figures, and I don't see them as being the be-all end-all of clouded leopards. I just see them as being the only real contenders right now. But it wouldn't be hard to convince me that they aren't actually clouded leopards.

Hello Bongo, I think Pege made a very interesting comment saying that the sculpting is great but the painting is simplified for mass production. Though I think it is far from bad and the sculpting looks superb to me. Anyway, I see you have a very different opinion and you really look sad. It surely means that you have high expectations from Mojo and that you wanted a figure even better. study
However I think that sending pictures of clouded leopard to a brand that listens to us and read respectfully all our comments, trying to say that the brand doesn't know what it is, is an unrespectful thing. Though, I'd loved to receive your pictures and explanations on my e-mail and discuss them friendly with you. If you're right, I'm sure Mojo will consider and change what possible, it is a brand that has a huge respect for us and you surely appreciate it. Very Happy

I'm sure the left and lighter one is a clouded leopard, the continental species. I only can tell it from markings once a sitting pose is always very poor in terms of shape information. Maybe the 2nd one is a Sunda but I'm not sure. The 3rd one cannot be a clouded leopard, unless there is a completely unknown pattern for me.

I agree that pelage color for the yellow and grey ones looks like a clouded leopard, but I was just wondering if Kaiyodo has ever actually called them Clouded Leopards. If they have, then how did they fit into the Animals of Japan theme, and what is the story of the "black" one? I've never seen a black clouded leopard like that. Also, given that clouded leopards' tails are easily as long as their HBL, don't you think that the Kaiyodo's tails are a little short? Plus, the painting isn't all that wonderful on the Kaiyodo's. It's okay, but not wonderful.

I think that to say that these are THE BEST clouded leopards is perhaps a little zealous; I have them - they're pretty decent, and I'm glad I have them. But I've never held them as the standard-bearer of what a clouded leopard should look like. I think Mojo's clouded leopard is understandably simplistic in paint-scheme, given the cost of complex painting, but I think the sculpt looks great.

Chad, I have no idea why they are introduced in a Japanese theme. I don't know Caiyodo enough to understand how their series of animals are built. I agree the tail is short for a clouded leopard and as I told, a sitting cat is always hard to judge in terms of sculpting. I also agree that the painting of Mojo figure is simplistic and the Caiyodo is anything special. I believe also that the texture is not as rich as in Mojo figure and the pose of Mojo is beautiful in my opinion. Anyway, I am always suspect once I participated on the development of the figure, so hardly it would look bad for me once I ahve the chance of giving my imput. I think Caiyodo, from what I know, can give us some very wonderful figures, mainly those with delicate parts, but as all brands, some are better others are not so good. These cats don't impress me but I believe they are very small and that they are very good respecting their size. Only from pictures, I don't have any doubt that I like best Mojo figure but there are surely some Caiyodo that I like best than Mojo relatives. Very Happy

To my eyes also Papo big cats are also still the best (perhaps will stay the best in future too) but I don't expect Papo ever release Clouded Leopard. :) Also I don't think Mojo or any brand could stop releasing cats species only because Papo cat are better, each brand do need wild cats in Wildlife range :)

Also, I feel like I would like to say it again, I really like the Mojo C.L., it's in very cute pose, has nice face , correct proportions and good sculpt in general (at least in my opinion :) ) Painting IS simplified but factories have their limitations. I can't wait to get this figure and repaint it Very Happy

For a long time, this one was the best Clouded leopard I knew, simply because I haven't any competitor on shelf. Even if it is not the best KAIYODO ever, it is more convincing as a Clouded leopard than as a leopard cat. KAIYODO already made a better leopard cat in 2001 Wink

i don't think the kaiyodo Neofelis is actually a marbled cat. You can find it as iriomote cat, but the the Iriomote cat is a bnational treasure of japan and there are also figurines of that species existing, so i don't thingk there's a mistake outside the internnational auction market,...It's pretty obvious a short-tailed clouded leopard, maybe after a stroke,...;-p
I really like to get the grey one one day as he looks far better than the yellowish one. I#ve never seen a picture of a more or less melanistic Neofelis but the original pattern makes it easy to think of a specimen with bigger blackish spots. So the dark figurine is also possible. i really like the mojo figurine as it's a very good pose for a clouded leopard. If you ever watsched a family with yougsters of several ages, i did this twice this summer, you can see how careful they notice what's happening around them and how cowered they move actually. So this figurines captures a specimen that's walking toward a tree and raising it's head to see when and how to start climbing,....or it's walking on a branch watching a bird,....the painting of the pattern is bad although several essential markings are placed pretty well.
On the other hand it's a result of industrial painting so i can't imagine a different realistic result. the head shape is very good for a female, the tail is long enough and get's thicker to the tip. It will be a fine partner fos my custom figurine.Btw., due to this discussion, i also corrected the tail of my rework today
