Walk-around of the rhinoceros beetle, gen. sp. by Bullyland. There are two color forms, the brown one was released in 1994 and the green one in 1995. They are not marketed at the species level (or if they were, I do not have the accompanying paperwork to confirm). One would suspect they represent Oryctes nasicornis (Linnaeus, 1758), given that is 'the' European rhino beetle, but the deeply-grooved elytra are not consistent with that species. Honestly, it looks more like a coprine dung beetle than a dynastine!

The two color forms are the same sculpt; they measure 6.5 cm (not including horn nor appendages), which would make it 1.5:1 if were intended to be O. nasicornis. Despite the abiguity of their identifications, I really like these figures.

Just like with the previously-reviewed house fly, this figure has a 'dollar-store knock-off' (see last image).

On to the pics:

With it's dollar-store counterpart (far right):

I like the green of 1995.

Thanks for sharing.

Thankyoufor the great pictures, - it seems that some dollar store supplyer has been much inspired by Bullyland cheers

The tag just says "dynastinae" study

Further snooping has lead me to believe that, despite the accompanying paperwork, this figure was indeed modeled after a dung beetle, probably Copris lunaris or Copris hispanus!
