PostSubject: Insect Magnets (Rement)   Wed Oct 04, 2017 3:17 am

Review of the [nearly entire] set of insects by Rement, released in 2010. I say nearly complete, because the accompanying papers suggest there was a secret figure which I do not have (the silhouette of the secret figure suggests something in the genus Dynastes.).

There are 10 primary figures in the set. They are comparable to Kaiyodo and Yujin gashapon figures at the time, but they do not require assembly. They are fairly nice, comparable to the Kaiyodo/Furuta Choco Q figures. The figures all have a somewhat unobtrusive magnet on the underside of the body.

The 10 figures are nearly all familiar Japanese/Asian species, most of which have been made several times. Only the Anoplophora chinensis is a rarity in toy/figure form. Since most of the species have been previously reviewed by me, I am not going into detailed descriptions this time.

On to the figures, based on their numerical order on the paperwork:

1. Japanese rhinoceros beetle, Allomyrina dichotoma.

9. Japanese giant mantid, Tenodera aridifolia.

10. Asian swallowtail, Papilio xuthus.

I hope you manage a way to find the secret iten. Very Happy
Some of them are on TAI but as they are just listed as Re-ment large Insects, I don't know if they are magnets, thus, the exact same figures as yours. Could you please [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - If they are the same series, I will use your pictures to complete the page. Very Happy

Hi Roger, yes that is the same set.

Someone has illustrated the secret on my post on ATF.

Those are amazing. If they are magnets, did you put them on your refrigerator?

Maybe this friend showing the Hercules beetle wants to be an editor on TAI and increase the bug presence on it. It is not mandatory to be a STS member.
The page is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I haven't got clear if the Japanese species is Dorcus hopei or Dorcus curvidens instead. Could you guide me through it? Very Happy
