Review of a set of insects by AAA. I am surprised I have not reviewed this set previously! I am not sure all the ways AAA markets their figures, and some of these may be available individually, but I bought mine as a bagged set.

There are 10 figures, medium in size (I will put individual measurements below with each image). They are all stamped with the AAA logo and a common English name (one of which is incorrect, they are discussed individually below). Scientific names below are of my assigning.

AAA is popular with collectors so I thought I would highlight this set! Enjoy. In no particular order:

1. Longhorned beetle, Cerambyx cerdo. If you accept my Latin name here, it would be a unique species. Length = 6.8 cm (not including appendages)

2. Ladybug. Length = 5.0 cm

3. Weevil. This figure is incorrectly marked on the underside as a 'dung beetle'. Length = 6.5 cm (including snout)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

4. Hercules beetle, Dynastes hercules. This species is commonly made but this might be the only female! It is the only one I am familiar with. On the underside it is stamped 'rhinoceros beetle]. Length = 5.0 cm

5. Rhinoceros beetle, Xylotrupes gideon. On the bottom stamped 'two horned beetle'. Length = 6.5 cm (including horns)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

6. Stage beetle. This is probably modeled after something specific, but I do not know what. Length = 8.0 cm (including mandibles)

7. Grasshopper. Length = 8.0 cm (not including legs)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

8. Green darner, Anax junius. Simply marked 'dragonfly'. Length = 6.3 cm; wingspan = 9.3 cm

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

9. Emperor scorpion, Pandinus imperator. Length = 10.0 cm (including claws, to the point at which the tail curls upwards)

10. Cicada. Length = 6.2 cm (including wings)

They look actually nice! I like the female Hercules beetle, for any reason it looks more exotic when they show something not so exotic. Laughing
I will bookmark this topic and use your pictures at the wiki when possible. Very Happy

I wanted to put these pictures on TAI but first I need your help to confirm if the cicada, ladybug, longhorn beetle, rhinoceros beetle (Hercules) already listed [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] are the same as yours. Very Happy

They are so neat! It's sad however they identified a weevil as a dung beetle… they are so different!
