Walk-around of what is probably my favorite figure, the Japanese firefly (also known as genji-botaru), Luciola cruciata Motschulsky, 1854 by Kaiyodo, Natural Monuments of Japan No. 45. The species has been made a couple times, including previously by Kaiyodo for their Choco Q Animatales line. This figure is from the Natural Monuments of Japan set, one of the greatest sets produced by Kaiyodo.

This is such a lively and dynamic figure. The detail is exquisite. Plus, I am a sucker for figures on natural bases. Like most older Kaiyodo figures, assembly is required. The beetle's body is 3.5 cm, making it roughly 3:1 in scale.

On to the pics:
