Get this mammoth figure on Ebay some weeks ago.

Was not sure if I would like it or not. The appearance in the photos was more a toy moving parts than a  collectors figure. However, the large size of the figure pushed me to take a chance and I think the mammoth figures of different brands do not fit the reality of this majestic figure.

The figure is impressive, more wonderful than I imagined !! What a Face
Despite being a figure in pieces of hard plastic and hollow allows the possibility of working on it.

Here are the pictures (especially for Martien Very Happy ):

It's very nice to hear You are going to work on it, I think is You paint him and merge the parts by Apoxie this mammoth would look excellent! bounce I remember Your rework of Schleich war elephant and I'm sure You can get such amazing effects also on this figure Very Happy

I'm glad you liked it friends !! Very Happy

Ana, could I possibly work on this figure but as Sussanne said it's a shame to transform an old and rare figure collector. Making molds is unknown and hard work for me.
Not what I will do in the end but it is true that this figure painted would be awesomwe painted. Shocked Shocked scratch scratch

Such an unusual figurine! Great find Miguel, the fur looks silky soft, at first I thought it was actual fake fur and not plastic!
