PostSubject: Subarudo beetles   Wed Feb 16, 2011 3:35 am

I recently bought a set of beetles by Subarudo (?-they were sold as Takara; maybe a collaboration?). They are copywrited 2006 and apparently are already retired. There are four 'basic' figures: Allomyrina dichotoma, Dynastes neptunus, Allotopus rosenbergi, and a Prosopcoilus sp., probably P. inclinatus (I assume the last--they were not named). Each contains a part of a fifth, 'secret' figure that when assembled is Dynastes hercules.

These figures are similar to Colorata, as they are kinda soft (not as soft as Colorata) and are assembled except for their legs (although the elytra are not permanently attached and may be opened or removed). They are better quality than Colorata, though, and they are BIG; very big by Gashapon standards. The Dynastes hercules is 20cm in length! They are as big or bigger than life-sized!

These species have all been done by Colorata (and/or others). This is my eighth name-brand A. dichotoma, joining Colorata, Yujin (Insects of Japan and King of Beetles), Kaiyodo/Furuta, Rement, CollectA, and Wild Republic.

I could not see these amazing beetles if it was not your post. Laughing
I tried different ways and the picture is showing in all of them. Though, I rehosted it and I am sharing the picture in this post with IMGUR. I hope you can see it now. Very Happy
