Am I the only one getting new figures lately?  :P

Yoou might be...I got my one thing recently. I have a couple things coming, but otherwise it's been a bit dried up lately!

Well I won't have much more the rest of this year I think...I think I have drained the 2017 buggies (unless Japanese mfrs pull out some surprises).

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  ;)

yes, H. parryi. Sorry that was a brain-fart typo on my part. Good catch on the legs. I haven't curated the 'specimen' yet so I didn't initially catch that. Unfortunately they don't remove, or not easily and I am not risking breaking it.

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.

I recently bought a Leanchoilia superlata from Paleocasts (Patrick May). I also inquired about some small figures by Pat that I saw on DTF, and he sold me a bunch of them at a nice price. In the end I ended up with 10 new taxa representing 9 new genera: the enigmatic L. superlata, 6 trilobites (Harpes sp., Asaphus kowalewskii, Phacops sp., Hollardops sp., Asaphus cornutus, and Eldredgeia venustus), two xiphosurans (Paleolimulus and Euproops), and the crustacean Dithyrocaris.

Here are some acquisitions over the month of September. Some of these have shown up already in other threads on the various fora, but here they are all collectively:

Some porcelain French feves. A set of eight grasshoppers, plus a plaque depicting the Holly blue (Celastrina argiolus) by the World Wildlife Fund.



Next, the fourth and final Heller model kit, the red ant, Formica rufa (walkaround coming soon).



A plaster cast of the extinct crab, Portunites by Fossil Molds and Replicas. Not something I would normally buy, but it's a new genus for me.



Three pressed glass figurines. Again, not into glass figurines but as a parasitologist I could not resist these three protozoa: Giardia duodenalis, Toxoplama gondii, and Trichomonas vaginalis. I guess if I were to get T. vaginalis, this is the way I would want to get it... >:D C:-) 8)
