Sumatran Rhino Wild Safari Wildlife 2018
« on: November 29, 2017, 06:58:48 PM »
At last, a Sumatran rhino! This is the last of the extant species to be represented in large toy form from on of the major brands.
It's a beautiful figure and well worth the wait. Unfortunately, the species id critically endangered with so few left in the wild and even fewer in captivity. The future is unfortunately not so promising for this rare and ancient beast.

With it long extinct close relative, the Woolly rhino

Thanks for this walkaround, OkapiBoy. I have always loved your photography. What figure is in the penultimate image? A custom? By whom?

I saw a message on Facebook today that it was extinct in Malaysia now.
To beetle or not to beetle.

Probably not the most beutifully detailed rhino figure (although it's not tha bad either) but since it's a Sumatran it's definitely a must have.

That's the Likaon model by Joan Milelire: http://www.likaonmodels.com/available-models-former.html  :)

Sumatran rhino is not the prettiest of the extant rhinos  ^-^

And yes, the second rhino is indeed by Joan Milelire, part of limited edition of beautiful figures.
