Review of the complete set of cicadas by BREAK Co. LTD (year of release unknown). Like the previous set of hornets, there are four figures: three adults (same sculpt, different paint jobs) and one nymph. I spent a good part of the morning researching what the species may be. When I bought the hornets, the online shop marketed them at the species level. However, this time I did not have that luxury and had to try and hunt them down myself. Because Break is Korean and not Japanese, these might not be the usual Japanese fare. However after a lot of searching I come back to familiar species previously made. At the very least I have the genera correct. Maybe someday I'll find them marketed specifically.

The complete set:

1. Graptopsaltria nigrofuscata. This one and its nymph (next) I am confident with.

2. Graptopsaltria nigrofuscata (nymph).

3. Euterpnosia chibensis. This could easily be the similar-looking E. varicolor but given that companies influence each other, I am sticking with the previously-made E. chibensis.

4. Cryptotympana facialis. This one took a while but in the end I determined it probably represents this familiar species, just with a slightly stylized thorax.
