Coconut Crab (Takara Tomy)
« on: July 05, 2014, 02:39:38 AM »
sorry the pics are pretty bad, I can try and get better ones if need be ;)






the level of detail in this piece is outstanding, especially given its size, every individual join is minutely detailed
as near as I can tell the accuracy is also amazing
it had some assembly difficulties, so unfortunately I had to glue it together, at least it didn't have any moving parts to worry about
shown for comparison are the other 2 I have in the series, but there are many I don't have

The coconut crab, Birgus latro, is a species of terrestrial hermit crab, also known as the robber crab, ganjo crab or palm thief. It is the largest land-living arthropod in the world, and is probably at the upper size limit for terrestrial animals with exoskeletons in recent Earth atmosphere, with a weight of up to 4.1 kg (9.0 lb). It can grow to up to 1 m (3 ft) in length from leg to leg. It is found on islands across the Indian Ocean and parts of the Pacific Ocean as far east as the Gambier Islands, mirroring the distribution of the coconut palm; it has been extirpated from most areas with a significant human population, including mainland Australia and Madagascar.

scale is approximately 1:12 - 1:15

Brilliant figure, this is my favourite from the series (I even like it more than the Japanese Giant Spider Crab). :)

They are THE SAME. Takara bought out Yujin and re-released the series. I explain all this in detail here: http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=2132.0
