As far as I've heard, the Mojo 2013 releases should be out in late August.

Someone should really explain seasons to them--specifically, when might zoos and museums be most interested in having the stock on their shelves? (hint: when the most customers are there--which is rarely the fall).

The Longhorn looks good in the catalog but.



Its a big cartoonish disappointment

I don't think it looks that bad. "Cartoony" (basically meaning stylised) is only bad if the anatomy is off. Maybe the sculpting style isn't to everyone's tastes, but I don't see any glaring errors. I'd have preferred a more realistic, detailed look, but I guess that's down to personal preference.

The Phat Capybara was quite stylised too, but ended up being decent.

Oh myyy, I hate to say it but Schleich's version is much much better looking than this one :)) Good to know, it is now officially off my wish list...

 :o I refuse to believe that this is a 2013 Papo sculpt until I see it for real .... it just doesn't look like one.  ....... really disappointing.
