Here it is, the beautiful Thylacine by Mojo! This figure is sculpted by Anna I believe, and like her other works, it's a masterpiece! Great to finally have a nice figure of this species. Mojo is lucky to have her as one of their artist, really elevated their figures.


And here it is with Joan Milelire's resin figure. They make a good pair, a male and a female :)


And here they are with their fellow denizens of Down under ;)

I always liked this figure because it shows that the thylacine, and all predators, do not have to be sculpted with their mouths gaping open all...the...time!

Of all the ones I have (4? 6?) only the Southlands Replica has an open mouth--but in this case, it's to highlight the ridiculously wide gape, which makes sense! Couple that with the CollectA, showing a female with large young in pouch, and thylacines have some of the most varied representations of animal figures (given how many lion figures are made, you'd think there'd be more poses than 'walking' or 'standing', for example).

Interesting, most of the thylacine figures I have seen have gaping mouths; maybe only a handful are being shown on the fora

Looking again, I guess it's true--of the 7 I have, 5 have a mouth open to some extent (none as wide as the SR version though). Only the Mojo and Innovative Kids is closed-mouth. My memory was apparently wrong!
