5105 - Mammoth with Calve
« on: October 24, 2011, 12:28:24 »
I got the entire Stone-age range for Birthday by my family. Conniefrere did a wonderfull job doing the reviews of the sets ... and to be honest - I've already thrown out the boxes as I didn't give myself any time to take pictures.
However, this is my favourite set from the theme  :-[ and as Conniefrere hasn't done this one yet ... I will steal it  :lol:

Here it goes ...

This is the complete set:

There isn't any movement of the body possible; with the exception of the head. That can turn:

The trunks of the adults can swing from front to back (forgot to take pictures of that) and the mouths of both the adult and the calve can open:

Here's the entire herd (at the moment). I've included a hunter for size comparrison. I want to have 1-2 more sets so that I have a complete herd. According to a few internet sites, a typical herd contained between 3 to 50 adults. Probably all female as the male's were on their own. I paid 10 Euro's for them and that's about right - imho.
(The lighter coloured version is from the Mamoth-rock set)

Well CountB, I think you did a wonderfull job at this review and thank you for mentioning my reviews ;). I made some photographs of this set too, but thought maybe someone else wants to make the review. Fortunately you did. Did you make pictures of the mammoth rock? Otherwise I will post them! :lol: :lol:

Coolll! They have one of these wooly mammoths preserved quite well in a cave near Fairbanks, Alaska, and it is is good shape because it froze very quickly. It will be cool to see the PM version one of these years. I am gonna put him in a cave, too! Pgal :wave:
After two decades of male toys (esp. Lego and PM) in our house, it is time to build something for us women!
