CollectA Smilodon
« on: September 15, 2015, 04:46:29 PM »
I was just wondering if anyone has the new CollectA Smilodon yet? If so, how does it look in reality - as good as the pictures?

Side note: I wish someone would make a Smilodon with its mouth closed. EVERY SINGLE ONE has its mouth gaping open. Not only would it make a change, but a closed mouth would illustrate the length of the fangs by showing them projecting below the lower jaw.

There's a review on the blog by Suspy that shows pictures at several angles of it.  :)

Don't you hate it when you legitimately compliment someone's mustache and she gets angry with you?

I got it. It's great, but not as good as the stock photos. Still one of the best Smilodon toys around though.

I also have and is the best in the toy market from my point of view inspired by works of paleoartists as Mauricio Anton.

sorry to hijack your smilodon thread, but I found these on ebay, anyone else have these, and know what size they are?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Takara-Tomy-ANIA-AL-10-Saber-Tiger-with-Neanderthal-Man-Action-Figure-/281794285977?hash=item419c3f9199

Im looking for a smilodon thats bigger than a Kaiyodo/Safari tube size but smaller than the Wild Safari/standard Collecta/Bullyland sizes. This might fit the bill.

They have a mammoth, plesiosaur and some dinos too.

Nice little action figures.  Takara really makes some nice toys and models, across the board.  Their 1/700 ships for example are fabulous.

I have it and it is a nice piece.  Not too lion like.  Smilodon was on the edge of the cat family genetically distinct so I want it to look different.  The teeth, long fore legs mean it was doing business in a different way so should look different.
You can never have too many dinosaurs

Thank you all for your replies. I actually got this model today for my birthday! It is pretty nice, but not quite as good as the stock photos (they never are, are they?). One of my personal favourite Smilodon figures is Mojo Fun's most recent one - closest I've found to a closed mouth! I really hope Schleich and Papo do new ones soon, especially Schleich since their current one is utterly dreadful.

Sorry for reviving such an old thread, but does anyone know which species of Smilodon are the 2015 CollectA and Safari ltd figures based on?
