Dynastes hyllus (SEGA, Mushi King DX series)
« on: February 17, 2016, 02:25:38 PM »
Walk-around is of the Dynastes hyllus in the Mushi King DX series which was released in Japan around 2006.

One of my favorites (see my Avatar)

The Sega Mushi King DX series include: Dynastes hercules (yellow (red eyed and revised black eyed version)/grey/dark brown type), Dynastes neptunus, Chalcosoma caucasus (red eyed no revised version), Megasoma gyas, Megasoma acteon, Megasoma mars, Hexarthrius mandibularis (red eyed and revised black eyed version), Dorcus palawanicus, Dorcus alcides, Allomyrina dichotoma (only one with wings in this series. the later revised DX version had no wings!),Procopocoilus giraffa (red eyed and revised black eyed version), Dynastes hyllus and Mesotopus tarandus.

The model needs a little assemblage and it looks very detailed and realistic. Scale being slightly bigger than 1:1 in almost all of the series models. The legs being a bit bulky in some models. This may be because they where sold more or less as action toys. This model is approximatly 8.3 cm (3.27 inch) without measuring the legs.
The legs, head and thorax are movable (a bit). Paintjob is very well done and the plastic is of good quality (very little warp on the legs in the whole series).

So here is Dynastes hyllus.

very nice; I have several Sega Mushiking beetles, from around the same time but they are smaller (some on bases to simulate wood). I do not have any of the DX figures, and a couple of species you mention appear to be 'unique'.

Awesome figure and beautiful photos, Beetle guy!  :) Sega Mushiking seems to have a lot more variety than I thought. It's the first ever Dynastes hyllus figure I've seen. Personally, I only have two Sega rhinoceros beetle figures, a Dynastes hercules and a Megasoma actaeon with optional "flight mode" which can be seen here in blackdanter's post from nearly three years ago but they are quite different in design so I wonder if these may belonge to a different Sega Mushiking series? Besides, I think we could maybe revive blackdanters old thread and add your figures there, too. Megasoma gyas is another species I've never seen as a figure before! :o

Thanks!
This is a different series from the ones you have (and Blackdanters). These are not "rubbery" but from hard plastic. I will post Megasoma Gyas next  ;-)

Yes, the small size series (very big series) is cool to, I will post the other species of the DX series soon!
