PostSubject: The Mojo fun Gentoo penguin :-)   Fri Jun 21, 2013 7:23 pm

Today it was my turn to be the lucky and get a present from James "Santa" Oconnelly !!!
Unfortunately most of the smilies don`t work, but I was jumping up and down, YESSSSS !!!!!sunny

The lovely new gentoo penguin, and the new catalogue with new design :-)))))
BIG hurray for James Very Happy

The gentoo penguin lives in Antarktis, where unfortunately the population is reclining to a level, where it is almost considered endangered.
It is the 3rd largest penguin, only smaller than the emperor and the king.
It is a very fast swimmer , and easy to recognize by the white "hood".
Read more here

First a picture of a live gentoo penguin :


And here some pictures of the beautyful Mojo model




















Together with his mate from CollectA.
Collecta-gentoo is a very silly bird. She keeps flapping round and falling on her nose, while Mojo-gentoo stands firmly on his feet ;-)


An interesting detail,  the mark doesn`t just say "Made in China", it says "Designed in UK, made in China " :)


And here is how the catalogue looks now !
No mention of STS any more. We are in the coompagny of the big guys now.
Well, that is ok, perhaps the Mojos will be easier to get hold of now...hopefully also in Europe ?


This was how the catalogue looked originally. A good friend got it for me at a German toy fair ;-)


Thankyou VERY much, James, for this lovely, lovely model !!!!!

Thanks for showing this wonderful gift! Very Happy The figure looks really great, is a very different interpretation from the CollectA one being both very representative of the styles of respective brands. Very Happy Mojo has a more defensive pose and surely much harder plastic what makes it stands better. I love and want it. Very good pictures and very interesting detail of the design mention. I think the STS mention is not an obligation of the brand. It happened when the brand gave us the chance of choosing a figure to their range and shared a cooperation with us. Of course I would love it happened again but ... Very Happy
As we can see, James as a good friend, hasn't forgoten his friends and it is nice to see that some of the forum friends are receiving so nice gifts. Very Happy

Could you please use the word please. I know Susanne appreciates it and I appreciate it too. She is being already very generous sharing all these pictures and informations with us almost in a daily basis. Believe it is much more work than make endless lists. Very Happy

to be honest:
my first thought was:
"what a great figurine!",..then i realized the fiirst pictures shows a real penguin,....
Then i saw the Mojo interpretation and didn't like it,..then i was hoping for a better one, and saw the pics of the Collecta-Figurine.
CollectA wins this comparison in my opinion.

Interesting, in my version of this catalog there are thanks to STS on 3rd page scratch study

Both versions are original: Mojo and Animal Planet. In some countries animals will be under name Animal Planet (then with this catalog) in other countries figures will be still Mojo and then they will have white catalog and Deinotherium on cover :)

What a fantastic figure! I confess I had the opposite reaction from that of Philipp: I saw the first picture and before realizing it was not the Mojo model, but a real penguin, I was not overwhelmed. Then, when I saw the actual model, I was very impressed. I don't know what that says about me and my judgment, but I do love the Mojo Gentoo!

The catalogue mentions STS Sussane. It is on the second page. I think it is great that James took the time to mention STS and point out specific members in it. :)

My catalogue doesn't mention STS on the 2nd or third page. No

I will survive LaughingLaughingLaughing

If Mojo hadn't left out the white markings around the eyes, this penguin would be perfect.
Now it's just handsome.Razz

Simone, I know eyeliner is very important for some women... it explains why Schleich pandas, tapirs, horses, etc. have a lot of eyeliner! Laughing flower
In my opinion it makes the difference between being handsome or not but in a reversed way. You mean like the left or right one on picture below? flower Very Happy

Roger is right ( of course Wink )

I noticed tha lack of the eyeliner, too. 
But take a look at the one from CollectA, it is far too much.
Probably it is a question about too much or none, - it must be almost impossible to paint such a thin, thin line, and keep the cost down scratch
