I wonder... has Kaiyodo stopped making CapsuleQ animal sets. Seems a poor year, especially arthropodwise.

Hexarthrius mixupoda   ;D

Yes be careful I had to glue mine (same mold from older series, this series came with a line drawing card with also had the legs mixed up).

From the older F-toys beetle series (the bigger scale 1:1 models), Dorcus palawanicus, and Dorcus titanus also had their legs mixed up. But these were a little bit easier to change.

Lastly Hexarthrius mandibularis, Prosopoloilus dissimilis, and Dynastes hercules from the 2017 F-Toys Insect Hunter set. These are not new for F-toys but they are all new for me.

It's a Hexarthrius parryi and the manufacturer swapped the hind and frontlegs. It hurts the eyes  ;)

Nice collection,
I am still looking for the two F-toys water bugs from the water creature set! The Lethocerus deyrollei i have. The other are a hard find.

Some great photo's!!! Very nice figure as well!

I have been ordering from Toysanta shop (on rakuten website) for years.

They have very kind (also a bit in English) service and have PayPal now (you will get a payment link a day or two after ordering by mail)

They also let you choose between different shipping options.

I can highly recomend the Toysanta store via Rakuten!

 :) Great!! mine is in customs as I write, so I think I will recieve it on monday, that is going to get a place in my "office".!

Same here, I will replace some pictures (only of the walkarounds and collection). May take awhile.

I have just deleted my Photobucket account, having enough of all the agressive commercial feeding and that they blocked my free account by highjacking my pic's to force me to pay.

Been using PostImage for awhile that's suits just fine!

I will restore most of the relevant images in time or replace them by better ones. This may take some time though. If there is any specific image you want to see, please let me know by a PM.

Very nice!!
On the colour variation, I noticed on twitter a colour variation on the Sofubi pill bug (012A). But have not seen it anywhere else.

And above left the variation you were looking for..

and this one. I found out that the variation is NOT called 'B' but the number 010 (in the salamander's case) without addition.
It seems the colour variations are limited editions. It is for sale in the Kaiyodo museum I think.  You can do a search on Yahoo auctions ;-)

Just had the Toad (plus a Japanese tree frog) set coming in and the two artrhopods from the deep sea 1 set. Really awsome!! Frogs stuck on the fridge with their magnets ;-)

The two arthropods are fine. A pitty they had to place the company name so prominent on the arthropods, it it spoils the models a bit, I think.

It is actually 'Ikimon' instead of 'Ichimon'.

I think the bottle cap P. inclinatus (from a series of 4 I believe) was given as a toy by a happy meal or something like it.
