Prehistoric Scenes prototype model parts.
Woolly Mammoth

This page is for prototypes that Aurora considered but never used. Alternate pieces for the Woolly Mammoth that were dropped due to cost issues.

Alternative legs and trunk for the Woolly Mammoth model kit.
Aurora was going to have alternate pieces, like they did with several other kits. But ended up not using them. Probably due to cost issues. The model was pretty big and used a lot of plastic already. The addition of these 3 (which would have been 6 piece) would have added even more to the cost of the kit.

These pics will show how different they are from the legs actually used in production

The right leg is raised more and curled.

The left leg is raised and curled also.
Leads me to believe that using both those legs you could pose the kit as if the mammoth was rearing up on it's hind legs.

The trunk is curled back towards the head.
