In the 1970's, Luigi Colani took a break from designing the future to create a little elephant-shaped bank for Dresdner Bank to give out to the kids. One has found its way to Lancaster, PA, and from thence to eBay, where it's currently clocking in at about $27.
If you miss this one, Metropolis lists a green one on their website for $100, which gives you a lot of room to bid--and save!
