Walk-around Megasoma gyas by Sega (Mushi King DX series) which was released in Japan around 2006.

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.

So here is Megasoma gyas one of my favorites.

Wow, what an awesome piece! 8) I'm really envious, this is the first time I've seen a Megasoma gyas figure - so far I've come across M. actaeon, M. elephas, and M. mars but I rather thought this unique looking species never made it into figure form. Thanks to all the beetle enthusiasm in Japan these beetles may not be as obscure over there like they are still in Europe or North America.

There is a smaller version as well, which is actually very nice and deatiled as well. I have one spare (big and small one) of these to trade  ;)
I'll make a pic of the smaller version as well. The small series has a whole bunch of species that go way beyond the usual suspects in Japanese beetle toy models. There are Odontolabis, Prosopocoilus, Eagus, Oryctes and lucanus species. I'll post a group shot next time!

Wow, that's great! :o :) I'll certainly have a few spare DeAgostini beetles if you're interested in those, too, I'll need a few days to check which doubles I have and send you a pm as soon as I know which ones I actually have.

DeAgostini really the best! But I a'm afraid to say that I have the DeAgostini series compleet (Japanese and European serie) :-[
If you have spare f-toy beetles (older series) that would be nice! I can send you an overview with my doubles via PM if you like.
