||I never had this model as a kid.
This kit was originally supposed to be a grizzly bear for
the "Wildlife" series, and it shows. There is
nothing that seems prehistoric about this kit to me. This
model is ok, but not as interesting as a dinosaur. I'm
thinking about putting my extra sabertooth with this when
I get around to building mine. I think it would make it
more interestng having the bear and tiger fighting each
This model has movable head, arms and legs.
be combined with the cave in several different ways, as
the piece of the Cave Bear base is the same size and
shape as 2 of the Cave base pieces.
So, if you take the Cave Bear, you can still use 3 extra
Cave base parts to add to it and they will fit fine with
the Cave. Also, from what I can tell, the Cave Bear wall
fits fine with the cave walls, so the options are pretty
wide open on what you can do with these combinations.
Actually, I have learned that you need the Cave Bear wall
the make a complete cave.
That is to say, if you want a full cave, that goes all
the way around 2 bases, you need the Cave Bear wall. For
a total of 7 wall pieces to make a complete circle.
Kurt sent me this interesting picture.
He cleaned up the box art to show what
the original artwork would have looked like.
