Walk-around of the larva of the Asian swallowtail, Papilio xuthus Linnaeus, 1767, by Kaiyodo - Sofubi Toy Box, No. 007, new for 2017. This figure was released early this year and has already been discontinued, so grab one while you can.

The species is common in much of Asia, from Japan to India, also the Hawaiian Islands. The figure has been made several times, including another caterpillar by Kaiyodo (Capsule Q Museum - Caterpillars), and adults by Bandai (Bugs Museum; Insect Science), Kabaya (World Insects Series I), and Rement. See the last image for comparisons with the Capsule Q caterpillar and the Insect Science adult.

The figure. WOW. It measures 23 cm long. Assuming the Capsule Q Museum version is 1:1, that makes this figure 4:1 (although it seems much bigger - someone can confirm my math if they want). The figure, unlike others in this series, is solid piece with no moving parts.

I have updated BOTD to reflect thus guy as well!

On to the pics:

After wikifying the extraordinary pill-bug, now I entered these pictures on TAI too. This caterpillar, although fantastic, is not exciting for me as the pill-bug. I really like these small creatures made as giants, much nicer than polar bears and so. Remember that 4:1 scale is a tridymmensional measurement. It means that the figure in fact is 4x4x4 larger in volume than the real creature. 654 times in this case.

Wonderful BIG model, I have only afew CQM caterpillars but I thank Kaiyodo to make so realistic and attractive unusual models.
