Fully equipped, parasol sold separately. The fully equipped elephant without parasol and mahout will cost around 12-13 euros when released.

Extremely beautiful and highly detailed design. :thumbup:

The estimated price seems absolutely justified to me.

Will it be manufactured in resin or do you consider to print in plastic as well?

Thanks for sharing this good news. :thumbup:

Yes, but elephants will be released without first, only mahouts, crew comes later, it takes time and cost a lot.

It's true, still the risks worries me. Two for each elephant might be possible I hope...
