Isn't it sad mother nature/man always gets rid of all interesting creatures on earth? Well the mammoth is making a comeback in 1/72 scale!

Excellent! Now of course I need a smilodon, ground sloth, short faced bear, bison latifrons and some prehistoric men and women. I don't know if the paleoamericans (Clovis tech users) had beards or not, but I would like some without beards. And then I would need the Columbian Mammoth. Oh, don't get me started!

We have no plans for prehistoric people but it's an interesting idea and we will consider it. The mammoth will cost 11 euros each.

Great figure!

I have an idea - is it possible to make mammoth's skeleton? There could be a lot of applications for this - for fantasy games, for dioramas, etc..

Seems like there already is a mammoth's skeleton model https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1993482

I guess it could be printed if there was a demand for it.

The woolly mammoth is finally available, it's a big model and therefore costs a bit more than expected.

Mine arrived fifteen minutes ago.

It is absolutely gorgeous - for a little plastic mammoth that is. But seriously the pictures don't do justice to the level of detail in the texture of the hair. It's a nice sie for my 1/72 figures. And I am looking forwards to sorting out some sort of pannier/howdah affair for some crew.

Nicely packaged, swift service, I ordered this last week. Top Marks Speira!
