These insects are spectacular. Shocked So nice that you have many of them. Very Happy
Do you know the complete list of Smithsonian Giant Insects? We are trying to complete the list on Toy Animal Wiki and we have still many doubts. If you want to have look of what is already done, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Very Happy

Roger, the list is not completely correct. First, the rock scorpion is not from the Smithsonian collection. the "luna moth caterpillar" is actually a monarch butterfly caterpillar. also the jumping spider pictured is from the hidden kingdom collection. also there is a Smithsonian flea. I think the rest of the list is accurate. Very Happy

Thanks Lance! Very Happy
I fixed it, without catalogues it is very hard to find accurate information. This line is not easy also to find online once it is long retired.
Now, maybe, there is no luna moth caterpillar and the flea should take its place. scratch Very Happy

Actually, the Hidden Kingdom Collection WAS the Smithsonian Collection.  Below are pix from the 1998 catalog.  Sorry they're rough - taken with a cellphone because I don't have time to scan them in right now.  Later additions to the collection were the Jumping Spider, Flea, and Black Widow, all of which were introduced when the collection was still under the guidance of the Smithsonian and all maintained the 2:1 scale.  Later, when no longer associated with the Smithsonian, things like bendable legs and whatnot were added.

Without further ado, the 1998 catalog:
