“Turntable Tuesday” CollectA Deluxe Woolly Mammoth

It’s “Turntable Tuesday” at Everything Dinosaur and time to give another prehistoric animal figure in our extensive range, a spin.  Today, we have selected one of the most underrated models in the CollectA Deluxe Prehistoric Life model range – the 1:20 scale Woolly Mammoth.  It is time this fabulous figure of an iconic Ice Age animal got put into the spotlight.

CollectA Deluxe 1:20 Scale Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius)

Lots of prehistoric animal ranges include a Woolly Mammoth figure (M. primigenius).  It seems that as soon as a manufacturer starts to extend a range beyond the Dinosauria, the Woolly Mammoth comes into consideration.  The CollectA 1:20 scale replica was introduced back in 2009 along with the Woolly Mammoth calf, which coincidentally, makes a short appearance in our video.  Interestingly, although no scale declaration was ever made for the calf model, these models were originally given sequential catalogue and production numbers.  They do work very well together in terms of scale.

Our short video showcasing these excellent replicas lasts around one minute fifty seconds.  Using a turntable to display the models we can permit viewers an all-round view of the figure.  We did have to place the adult Mammoth on its back so that we could show the beautifully sculpted teeth in the upper jaw.  Those tusks (upper incisors), are beautifully weathered too.

Model Measurements – Are They 1:20 Scale Woolly Mammoth Models?

The CollectA Deluxe adult Woolly Mammoth measures around 20 cm long and that magnificent head is approximately 15 cm off the ground.  Different species were different sizes and as with extant elephants today, the males were much larger than the females.  Scientific measurements based on Mammuthus primigenius suggest an adult body size of around 3.5 metres to 4 metres in length, so this figure is indeed in approximately 1:20 scale.
