Q: Is Sam as flexible as the Fred Skeleton?
A: Yes. Not only is Sam as flexible as Fred, but he also includes painted markings that show where the muscles attach to the bones (also known as “muscle insertion” and “muscle origin” points). On top of that, the major joints on Sam’s right side include artificial ligaments that give you a much better way to demonstrate life-like movement in the arm, hip, and leg. For these reasons and more, that’s why Sam is Super!
Q: Does Sam need to be put together?
A: If Sam was shipped fully assembled, he'd be too big to be shipped in a normal box. Fortunately, assembly is very simple with the included instructions. The limbs and skull must be attached, and the stand is put together upon arrival. Overall, the process only takes about 5-10 minutes.
