We may be sending these WWII Russian figures off to Vancouver for painting, but they'll eventually reach Thailand - because that's where DJD Miniatures conducts operations...

"R-O-U-S's, Rodents of Unusual Size? I don't believe they exist." WHOMP! Grrrr! Chomp! "Ahhhh!" Princess Bride movie, the Fire Swamp scene. Classic! Love the figure. Looks to be a rip-off from the movie. Hilarious! Thanks for sharing, Tango. Cheers!

I think the animal modeled is a Tapir:

Modern ones are big, up to 700 Lbs. (300 kg)
Extinct ones, well, who really knows.
But at least 800 pounds (363 kilograms).

DyeHard, you are probably correct -- in fact, I have no doubt that you are. I still like my answer better, though. LOL! Cheers!

Crikey, I have that miniature. i think it came from a dinosaur figure range, although I cannot remember who as it was a long time ago.

It's a Steve Barber diprotodon. I tried to buy one the other day, and unfortunately could not find it in the catalog, although the other prehistoric animals are there. Left a message on the site, but didn't get a response, I would love to acquire one (not a real one though).

Got a response from Steve, it is OOP right now, but might be coming back. I hope so, I think we all want one of these.

I thought it might be Steve Barber.

I only checked the current line. I hope it comes back soon.
So much character!!
