|Notice the different box sizes in
the picture. This is because the original 71 only came
with one base. Later versions came with 2 base pieces. So
this one had a much more drastic box size change than the
other 71 issues did. Also, the snake was removed from the
box art as well.
This model comes with 4 exta legs for a total of 8 to give the builder a variety of options for poses. I have enough parts to build 2 complete kits, each with different legs. One will have the 2 part base, while the other will have just the single base.
A nice little kit with plenty of variety of build-up choices. I finished mine first one with the 2 part base and the "raking" legs.
The legs are the only movable pieces on this model.
