First wave kit. The arms are moveable
Comes with a two-headed snake and multiple arms and legs to spice things up.
Pretty easy to find. Not as much demand for this compaired to a lot of others in the line.

turnaround view
A look at both boxes from all sides.
This being one of the first wave kits, has two different box sizes. All the first kits had their box sizes changed in 1972 when the next wave was released as well. This model, as well as the other "human" kits in this series, comes with 2 sets of arms and legs. That way, you have a choice in how you want the model posed. This kit also comes with a 2 headed snake. Which is probably the most interesting thing about this kit. For some reason, the human kits just don't seem as fun to me. Maybe because at 1:13 scale, they are kind of small which makes them a pain to paint. Of the 3, this is my least favorite. It doesn't have any of the neat extra parts that the two men have.
I have some pictures of one of mine up here now. Now I can start on the other one. I intend to build 2 versions, using the optional parts.

This is the original art used for the box of the Cro-Magnon Woman model kit for Aurora's Prehistoric Scenes line.
The frame is 21 by 24 inches.
You get to see more art on this than the cropped down image that is on the box.
I am the second private owner and have a letter from the original owner, Bill Brugeman from Toy Scouts, explaining how he got it and that I am the current owner.
