The head and tail pivot up and down. Legs swivel, and you can spin the end of the tail..
Being a later release, these are a little rarer. So original versions are in big demand.
Mainly because it comes with both base pieces. (reissues only have 1 base half)
Ones with a nice box get very high prices.
Even reissues get good results as it is also a nice kit to own and build. Well designed with very good fit, and fairly well hidden seams.
Reissues go by the name of Ankylosaurus. Most recent Revell issue called it Tank'

Aurora version comes with 2 part base. Reissue comes with only one part (including the newest 2007 issue). The Revell-Germany 93 version does come with the clear green parts for the Sailback reptile though. Not sure why, but they are there.
This was a very nice kit to build. The way the body goes together eliminates having to fill a lot of seams.
Nice sized kit. Not real big like the mammoth, but not small either. Gives pleny of area to really get into painting and detailing the model.
