Let's hope that the real figures inside the box correspond with these fantastic masters, carlosfaro. All of us know that, sadly, it doesn't happen always. :(

"La Esperanza es la ultima que muere"

or something like that. That's how I learned it. "Hope is the last thing to die."

I hope Linear-A keeps cranking out these great figures!

"La esperanza es lo último que se pierde" ;)

It seems that in English-language countries they have a similar saying, carlosfaro, hahaha.

It is very nice and this is a set that I am looking forwards to.

I have my reservations about the furry kilt, on the basis that both the Neanderthals and the Denisovans were people who lived in areas where I think tailored clothing would have been preferred.
By tailored clothing, I mean equivalent to the sort of clothes worn by Native Americans, leggings, shirts, inuit style parkas etc. We know from their flints that they were capable of fine and detailed work - why would they go chasing after their foot in a 'blankie'? It makes more sense to wear something you can run in and still be warm.

You are totally right... Still existent primitiva cultures show, having developed that tailor technique orbin theborher hand, when it is too Hot, wearing no clothes at all (as Yanomami Papoo, australian native or Bosquiman)
When something Warmer or confortable was needed, I do not have a doubt our prehistóric ancestors were able to manufacture something.

Anyway I Will get this set of múltiple cliché prehistóric types, Lots of funny uses in my mind for them...

Nice to see that early Homo Sapiens had access to anabolic steroids.

Who knew they were so chemically sophisticated?

Oh Bluefalchion, the Amazons have a similar type of problem - lots of hormones - but we all like that don't we?
On my part I am curious what kind of poses we will end up with here. This will decide what you can actually do with these.
We have a Neandertal king watching and ruling over his domain.
Now we have a Homo sapiens rejoicing over his win - a downed mammouth or a repelled Neandertaler?
Let's wait and see - is part of the fun

The Minoans review is up now at PSR:

Pretty favorable. But one thing that demands further scrutiny. The Minoans trained blue monkeys to pick saffron for them???
