Didn't they make toobs of space travelling (astronauts) and boats (liner, canoe, etc)? How would a lost liners toob be different?

I recall something of it--but like their 'train' and seagoing' toobs, those tend to be generic, instead of specific. Honestly, in order to get small representations of things like specific cruise liners, ships, etc., you are probably looking at the Japanese companies like Bandai and Takara.

I can't wait to see the wildlife figures this year, I'm hoping for a hippo, Indian Rhino Calf, Bongo and Tapir Calf!!!!!!! Especially since Schleich don't seem to have added any of these!

Schleich once made a female and calf hippopotamuses. They have been retired a few years ago; now, only the male remains.

Yes, I have both, I think the female is absolutely brilliant, however I was hoping for some form of hippo from schleich in 2012. Looks like Safari is my next bet. I love the head of their current hippo, but the colour and feet seem wrong to me!
