Arms are moveable. Comes with extra arms and legs, plus lots of accessories.
Like a rock, clubs, and various critters.
What it lacks in detail, it makes up for in action and parts.
Partial build-ups aren't hard to find, but a complete kit will be on the kind of pricey side. Thats because most are usually missing a few of the small parts. 1st issue boxes tend to be more desirable.

As with all the other "human" models in theis series, this one came with 2 sets of arms and legs, so you could decide how you want it to look. It also comes with an assortment of weapons and other items. I am building 2 complete neanderthal men. One holding the rock and the other holding the club and food. Each will have a different set of legs.
Note, one of the changes in the box art is the removal of the dinosaur in the picture. The same was done with the CAVE model kit. Mainly because customers were upset that there was a dinosaur in the picture , but not in the box with the model. So, if you get a box with the dinosaur, it is one from the first year of production.
The arms are the only thing movable on this model. Also, the small club (pt # 20 ) is the same as the one in "The Cave" (pt # 42)
