Before sending this model off to Joe Wiedeman of Mini-Dragon, I decided to open up the pack and take some pictures. (As usual...)

Giant Gor in its original package

The Giant Gor obviously fills the package! This is the largest model (so far) in the Simian Army product line, which is appropriate given the subject matter:

The mighty Gors, bred in the highest forests of the mountain kingdom are used in battle. These gigantic mountain gorillas are used in lumber and mining industries as well, but they are terrifying creatures in war. They can easily decimate dozens of men, and send battle hardened veterans screaming away in fear.

Due to size and complexity of pose, this is a multi-part model - head, torso, arms, legs, and base.

torso and base

The torso is the part that everything else attaches to, and has appropriate large holes for everything to fit into. The pack also includes a featureless rectangular base (roughly 40mm x 60mm) with a beveled edge.

Arms

The arms give the Giant Gor a lot of its size and menace. The beast walks on the knuckles of one arm, while the other arm is reaching out to do damage. As the photo shows, the arm part has a generously large surface area for the attachment, and a unique pin so that you get the part in the right place and the right orientation.

Legs

As with any gorilla, the legs are less significant than the arms. The legs have secure attachment points to the body, with the feet planted firmly to the ground/base.

Head

And the head conveys the fury and rage of the Giant Gor!

The parts fit together well with a minimum amount of wiggle room. I was even able to briefly hold the parts together for a group portrait:
