I acquired said model from a friend who got it while on a factory tour way back. It's unbuilt and complete. Is this thing worth keeping? I have no use for it, myself. BTW, NO Box. Came in a plastic bag with instructions.
If you can be of any help, PM me at

IIRC,the torso was fiddly to attach to the legs--especially with the glue available at the time. I "inherited" mine when my little brother yelled "I don't want this stupid thing!" and flung it across the room.

Got a lot of models that way. . .

It had a nice terrain base, IIRC … broken, fallen trees, etc. You could check on eBay for prices, and auction it, if you don't want to keep it. You may have something that some will pay for … auction

Yes,they all had interesting bases and accessories. My favorite was the Mummy.

They even did a separate accessories set,with extra rats and things.

I remember all those. Some model company, IIRC, "Moebius" was making a lot of the old models like that … Yep here's the link …

Yep. I've noticed those in the past.

Prices a bit higher than when I bought the originals,though : )
