Insect Magnets (Rement)
« on: October 04, 2017, 02:16:38 AM »
Review of the [nearly entire] set of insects by Rement, released in 2010. I say nearly complete, because the accompanying papers suggest there was a secret figure which I do not have (the silhouette of the secret figure suggests something in the genus Dynastes.).

There are 10 primary figures in the set. They are comparable to Kaiyodo and Yujin gashapon figures at the time, but they do not require assembly. They are fairly nice, comparable to the Kaiyodo/Furuta Choco Q figures. The figures all have a somewhat unobtrusive magnet on the underside of the body.

The 10 figures are nearly all familiar Japanese/Asian species, most of which have been made several times. Only the Anoplophora chinensis is a rarity in toy/figure form. Since most of the species have been previously reviewed by me, I am not going into detailed descriptions this time.

On to the figures, based on their numerical order on the paperwork:

1. Japanese rhinoceros beetle, Allomyrina dichotoma.



2. Sawtoothed stag beetle, Prosopocoilus inclinatus.



3. Stag beetle, Dorcus hopei.



4. Cicada, Cryptotympana facialis.



5. Asian giant hornet, Vespa mandarina.



6. Migratory locust, Locusta migratoria.



7. Citrus longhorned beetle, Anoplophora chinensis.



8. Golden-ringed dragonfly, Anotogaster sieboldii.



9. Japanese giant mantid, Tenodera aridifolia.



10. Asian swallowtail, Papilio xuthus.

I will check, I am expecting a big lot of beetles from Japan, it may be in there. Then it's yours ;-)
