Safari Ltd confirmed on Facebook that the figure is the same version as before and that "it is brought back due to popular demand."

Hmmm, it wasn't retired for that long but now that we know it's been brought back due to popular demand... makes me think: Wouldn't it be cool to bring back the entire Vanishing Wild Collection, Smithsonian Collection, and Tennessee Aquarium Collection by, ahem, popular demand? ;D

Wow, a popular demand can make a brand to produce again a retired figure? Now, let's start a popular demand for the Safari LTD retired California condor and Malayan tapir!!!!  :))

It happens occasionally. Usually they rerelease it with a slight paint change or something, like the aardvark. There's been a few like that

It seems like every year one to a few are just repaints. For example, the giraffe and its calf, the pangolin, rockhopper penguin, and sperm whale in 2019 are like that.
