Just saw this news article:

Wouldn't it be great if Schleich released this memorial as a figure. Last year we saw many limited Edition figures, one from the Marbach Stud.
I think this could be a great opportunity for Schleich to make money and get in the public light, Knut was famous worldwide and it would also rekindle Schleich's old relationship with the Berlin Zoo, as well as giving us a new polar bear figure on a rock.

Do you think it's a good idea???? question question

WOW, that statue is gorgeous cheers

Maybe it would also cost a fortune for a toy-manufacturer to copy it ? scratch

But it is a very good idea Very Happy

Yes it's a good idea Andy!

I didn't know he died, that is SO sad. I remember when he was first on the news and now he's gone, only four as well. Sad Crying or Very sad

Oh,that's Knut! Very Happy I saw him only one time when we visited the Berlin Zoo and I stood maybe a quarter of a hour in front of his compound and just watched him... drunken cyclops I was very,very young at that time... Embarassed Laughing

Maybe they'll see this and pick up on it or we could email them. It would be a proper limited edition figure (if they wanted it as limited) as well, instead of just a colour change on a figure!

Is a nice idea. I saw Knut in the summer 2010 as i visited the Berlin Zoo.
