Trendmasters Inc.
« on: October 02, 2015, 04:25:58 AM »
I was going through some older, misc figures I had stashed away and I came across these three insects from Trendmasters Inc. as part of their Insect Predators line. Does anyone have any other figures from this company/series? I am pretty sure there was also a mosquito, scorpion, and stag beetle among the insects.

The three I have are:

1) 'praying' mantis (Stagmomantis). It is identified as both Stagmomantis and praying mantis, although the 'true' praying mantis is in the genus, Mantis. I am going with the scientific name supplied.
2) 'killer bee' (Apis melliffera)
3) wasp (Bembix americana)



Post other Trendmasters figures on this new thread!

Did some snooping and found this on eBay (look Sean, a sting ray!)

So there are other animals as well.

I like the design, but the lot is more than I'd pay. It's neat the way they are set up as 4 packs that form a picture. Couldn't make out the stingray species though.
