This came in today. Two sets of beetles (Dynastinae and Lucanidae).

Their are made by Acces toys (which was an unknown manufacturer to me before) and were released this month (june 2018)
The boxes have a wrong translation, saying there are twelve beetles in it. While clearly seven per set are there.

The Lucanidae set, which I like most, contains: Prosopocoilus giraffa keisukei, Dorcus titanus palawanicus, Cyclomatus elaphus, Dorcus hopei binodulosus, Phalacrognathus muelleri, Allotopus rosenbergii.
Nothing new species in toy form here.

The Dynastidae set contains: Dynastes hercules hercules, Dynastes hercules lichyi (blue type), Chalcosoma caucasus chiron, Trypoxylus dichotomus, Dynastes granti, Eupatorus gracilicornis Megasoma elephas.
So no new species known in toy form here also. The Dynastes hercules species have different molds, that's nice!

The figurines are pretty good, the ventral side is left plain black but also nicely detailed, the paintjob is fairly realistic. So nice figurines considering the price of about 5 Euro per set!
Might snatch up an extra Lucanidae set to repaint.  8) I am centainly going to lose the weird bright red eyes (which remind of the early sega sets)  ;)

Some pic's:

'Chicken' is a bit of a misnomer as this genus is actually a grouse. Common names can be misleading, which is why scientific taxonomy is so important. Anyway, interesting figure. Are there any other toys of this genus or is it unique?

Walk around of the barn owl (Tyto alba) by Furuta (ChocoEgg Series 6). It is in a sort of hunched over pose so in the last photo I show its face full on. It looks a little startled! :)) The pin in the first photo and my thumb in the last photo give an intication of scale.

This is the only one that I have on purpose (the fennec fox was sent along as well, just because). It's a great figure, it's too bad that they keep leaving fish out of their release lines.

at least you got something this time ;-). None of the US line has any arthropods. Not surprising since they seem to be focusing on endangered species.

I only found out about the existence of this figure earlier on the day you posted this  ^-^

Looks nice, one of the few Yowies I actually like (although I do think the USA line in general is higher quality than the Australia and UK lines).
