These are my favorite dogs. Pretty nice statues, although they have picked what seems to be a slightly unusual stationary/anticipatory pose.

I've always been convinced that Scooby is a Great Dane. And when I was a kid our resort neighbors had a huge harlequin (spotted) Great Dane named Caesar, just like the one in the first (actual animal) photo. That was the sweetest, clumsiest, and most good-natured animal ever.

These are lovely! Mr.Z make such great figures/figurines in general, but seem to be especially good at creating realistic looking textures on short-coated animals.

Scooby IS a Great Dane, Guv. The first brown/tan one is the way to go for him, as he doesn’t have a brindle coat.

I had the same thought as soon as I saw these on the BBICN forum.

Then I remembered that Scooby has black patches. He's probably a pretty unique Great Dane in more ways than one. I'm still very tempted to get the brown one whenever they go up for pre-order.

My vision for the the Flirty Girl Daphne and Velma was to have them in a crossover from the classic to a more Scooby Apocalypse comic book world.

I’ve never heard of that comic — that’s pretty cool. Hmmm... no Fred? I forgot about his spots — I wonder now if the brindle Dane wouldn’t be more appropriate, or if that would be too unrecognizable...? I definitely need to do what you did and change out the Daphne head — not sure why Flirty girl used the same head for both of them.

It lasted for 36 issues. It wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would be, but it acts as a window into a more serious and dangerous world for the characters.

Fred's in it, and he has his own pretty significant story line.

I was thinking brindle because it's a darker brown. From what they've shown the pattern is quite subtle, almost like shading, rather than stripes:

I don't like the sculpts at all. There's something quite creepy about them! I used the best alternative I had for Daphne, which was DAM's IDF Nachshol girl.

I tried to make the best of Velma's head by cutting the hair into a more recognisable shape.

They're both on the same VeryCool FX05B Suntan Big Breast body, but to reduce Velma's height I took off her feet and ankle pegs. She's wearing a pair of Asmus Joker Bank Robber shoes as they were the nearest thing I had to short boots.

I have a hard time posing Daphne. Since taking the photo I swapped out the pancake left hand for a trigger finger hand, which has a more realistic relaxed appearance.

Very nicely done, Asta. And these are certainly some more impressive comic renditions of the original characters. As for Scooby's spots, realistic or not they could always be painted on, I suppose.

One day I might find better sculpts for them. I've looked but so far seen nothing that fits the bill.

The comic artwork for this series was really good. The premise is good, and at the beginning it feels like a group of survivors in an early episode of The Walking Dead. But as it progressed I started to lose interest. Nice to have them for the art though.

I've always loved the Scooby-Doo cartoons. I think I have them all. One of the best series was Mystery Inc. from 2010-2012. There was an amazing use of light and colour, and the story was pretty good too.

I think, right from the beginning as a kid, I was hooked by the atmosphere in some of the early cartoons. Even though it was full of silly humour they still sometimes managed to create an eerie feeling. Scooby Apocalypse was a natural progression.


The dog could definitely be repainted in acrylics. I turned a black cat into a black and white cat once. The only fear is messing it up. Mr. Z aren't cheap, so I think I could live with the brindle.

Just got to see who's going to sell them. The only place I ever see a big range is Machinegun-figures.com in France.

Sometimes Cotswold gets them, but not all the different varieties. Most of the time I just get them off the numerous eBay sellers I trust.

While I’ve liked some of the later Scooby cartoons, nothing can beat Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? The originals were the best.

That was the one that got me hooked. It would be on TV when I got home from school. Very Happy

I'll probably wait for Machinegun. They don't do pre-orders, so you have to tag an item to receive an email when it becomes available to order. I'd rather just pre-order and be done with it.

Machinegun-Figures.com now has these in stock, and they're quite a bit cheaper than the only other place I saw them (www.space-figuren.de).

MG has them with a cheaper listing and cheaper shipping.

There's no perfect Scooby-Doo, but I went for the brown one as the best option.

These animal figures are beautifully-realised as usual, but I'd be more into the idea of collecting them if they were articulated.

But then if they were articulated, they'd most probably be less beautifully-realised.

The colour question is a tricky one.

A Google search for Great Dane colours brought up The Happy Puppy Site, who write:

Fawn is the most common of the Great Dane colors.

It’s also the most recognized; after all, Scooby Doo was a fawn Great Dane!


I'm not sure what was best, but the brown one is now on the way. These are Mr. Z's outdoor shots for comparison:

Since Scooby was atypical by design the only way to have his colours on a realistic version would be a repaint.

Scooby-Doo is a Great Dane. He's not based on anyone's pet; he was originally intended to be the sidekick to the kids until the development process (and an initial rejection from the CBS board) made it clear that the dog should be the star.

When Scooby-Doo was early in development in late 1968, co-creator Joe Ruby-  afraid Hanna-Barbera might be sued by the owners of the comic strip Marmaduke for using a Great Dane - changed Scooby (at the time named "Too Much") to be a sheepdog. This version of the show, then called Mysteries Five, was rejected by CBS daytime executive Fred Silverman, and after learning why Ruby had changed the dog to a sheepdog, producer Joseph Barbera groaned to Ruby "...just use a Great Dane!"

The character's design was inspired by a conversation character designer Iwao Takamoto had with a Hanna-Barbera studio employee, who was a breeder of Great Danes. Takamoto took notes from his colleague, and then proceeded to take all of the rules that made an award-winning Great Dane and break them: bowed legs instead of straight, a double chin instead of a strong one, a sloped back instead of a straight one, and spots instead of a smooth coat (no purebred Great Dane has spots, though Harlequin Great Danes have black mottled patches).

I hadn't read Scooby's history until today, so that was all new to me.

Did you decide on a colour?


Can't find any in-hand reviews yet to see how the brown one turned out. Hopefully he matches the promotional photos and the black parts look like shading, otherwise I might be hoping I'd ordered the fawn one.

Yeah, I think I’ll go with the brindle (same as you). Though the fawn color would work just as well.

He arrived this morning.

Can't say I'm very impressed.

First off, two of his legs on one side were bent inwards. I thought that was going to be fatal, but as he's made of resin I've been able to heat them up with a hairdryer and try to reshape them. I spaced them apart with Lego and they hold the new shape when they've cooled down.

I think I have his front legs correct, but the back still need to be worked on. I got him to the point where he can stand on his own, but the legs need some 'fine tuning'. So I'm using a mug of hot water, which really softens him up fast.


Secondly, the paint/finish doesn't look that great. I've been spoiled by the dogs from Border Fine Arts, Country Artists, Sherratt & Simpson etc, plus those hyenas from Alert Line.

He has a plastic sheen when the light hits at certain angles. The black markings do look more like shading than brindle and they look good from more than a yard away, but as you get closer they look more heavy handed.


I thought Mr. Z had a good reputation for their animals, but this gives me some doubts.

The sculpting is good, I'll give them that. But the finish lets it down.

He looks better from a few feet away, which would be normal viewing distance:

NEW PRODUCT: Mr.Z: simulation animal 37th-1/6 ratio German Great Dane German Great Dane - full set of 6 colors 49438466328_037622625c_o


But zooming in with the flash shows up the shiny, plastic texture :

NEW PRODUCT: Mr.Z: simulation animal 37th-1/6 ratio German Great Dane German Great Dane - full set of 6 colors 49439160887_d7d2c6628f_o


Thankfully he doesn't look that bad under normal lighting! But there is still a sheen to the face. I keep seeing mention of Dullcote, and wonder whether that would be a fix.

Sorry for you disappointment, Asta. The fact you had to soften/reshape the leg is very frustrating -- I wonder if you could make a complaint about that to the seller? 

Regarding the finish -- I guess the glossy finish is not something that surprises me, since their horses also have a rather prominent sheen to them. I have always presumed this is a protective layer to prevent scratches, but I could be wrong. Currently, I only own two Mr. Z horses, so I don't have direct experience with their other animals. It's hard to tell from your pics if the shine is 'too much', but to me it looks ok. : )

He looks all right as long as he's not under bright lights. The shine surprised me as I was expecting him to be more like Alert Line's hyenas, where up close with the flash the only really shiny parts are the ones that are meat to be - the eyes and nose:

But they're a harder material, like polystone as with most of my 1/6 dogs. The Great Dane is the only one I have that's resin, though at least it meant I was able to rescue his legs and avoid the fuss of a return and exchange.


Here he is raised to the level of the oval bases for height reference:

Hmmm, you’re right. Looks okay at a distance, but the brindle application is somewhat disappointing. Now I’m debating the fawn color — as I still haven’t made my purchase.

I have quite a few Mr. Z animals, and this is the first I’ve noticed a sheen like that — or to that extent. I wonder if they changed their paints...

I do agree the stripes on the brindle coat seem poorly painted. Maybe it’s just cause I’m on my phone, but I can’t tell how bad the shine is from the pics, since the use of flash makes it even more pronounced, though of course I take your word for it. Wonder how it holds up being photographed in natural light?

ETA: For what it’s worth, despite the issues, he still looks nice next to your figures. : )

Judging how the brown turned out the fawn is going to be pretty light.

The shininess is really apparent in Mr. Z's photo of the black and white:

Apart from the sculpt I'm not really happy with it. The only thing that might save it is a fully Scooby-Doo repaint.

A repaint could turn out really nice — I recall seeing some repaints of the Mr. Z horses on a German forum, and they looked quite good.

But still, very sorry for your disappointment. </3

I'm going to have a think about it, and try to imagine how he'd look in plain brown with the five black patches.

Somebody did it to a real Great Dane!

That’s a great photo of the real dog. What a patient animal.

Despite the disappointments and the corrective action, he looks pretty good. I broke down and went for one -- the beige (fawn?). My fond childhood memories were of a harlequin Great Dane owned by a friend, but I wasn't sure I wanted to chance it with the application of the spotting.

Since ordering him I'd been wondering whether I should have gone for Fawn.

I looked at him again this morning, and moved him round the collection room to see how light and position changed his appearance. I realised he was better at eye level or below. Where he was before, on a high shelf with one of the ceiling lights angled in his direction, wasn't doing him any favours. He was looking washed out and pale.

I found another spot for him along with Daphne and Velma in one of the display cases. Lower down and out of direct light he improves, and the brindle that resembles shading appears a little more blended.

However, when I look at him after turning on the extra lamp at that end of the room, I get the urge to repaint him again!

This real life Scooby repaint kept the melanistic mask:

EDIT:

I painted his collar in an attempt to sell the illusion that he's Scooby. Laughing

The photo had to be taken with the flash, but I took it from a way back to mitigate it's affect.

I'll give him an 'SD' dog tag when I find something I can make it from.

The blue collar has already gone a long way toward the illusion. ;’)

It actually is starting to convince me. Laughing


Started on his dog tag.

A 1x1 Lego tile is just right. But so tiny when trying to get the 'SD' into the blue square. I used to spend hours painting wargaming miniatures right down to their eyeballs, but this is harder.

I used a white tile and painted the turquoise square, then the yellow surround. And messed it up with the letters in the middle.

I think I ought to use a yellow tile and just paint the turquoise bits in the middle instead.  Idea

Nice effect with the collar. I agree the further the light is away from him, the better it looks. Since Scooby isn’t based on any real dog, or it’s coloring, the effect (without a full repaint) will always be “close enough”, so I think adding that little bit is a nice touch. Daphne and Velma look very different from their animated counterparts, so it only stands to reason Scooby would too.


When I was a little kid (4 or 5), family friends had a big black GD, that their kids, my brother, and I were able to ride like a horse — such a good, gentle dog. Then one really, REALLY hot day, I kept bugging him when he didn’t want to be bothered, so he got up and bit me in the face — I have a small scar on the bottom of my chin, and at the edge of my hair-line — he could almost fit my entire stupid head in his mouth. I forgave him, of course, but I learned my lesson not to bug him when he didn’t want to be bothered. I still have fond memories of that dog, despite my one F-up.

Aww, I'm glad you weren't too traumatized by that, Stryker. But yes, it's so true... even the gentlest animals have their limits! It's probably a good lesson to have learned as a kid....

A lucky escape, Stryker!

I've finished his dog tag now too.

You're right, I think he'll pass without a full repaint - which is something I didn't really want to have to do. His identity now lies in his collar and his tag.

Oh, wow, that really does the trick! If you hadn't already mentioned who he was supposed it be, it would be perfectly clear now, just with that addition. Excellent job. Smile

Now he knows who he is!
