Prosopocoilus giraffa (Sega/Bandai DX series)
« on: November 09, 2016, 03:35:11 PM »
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.

Another beetle of the Mushi King DX series; the Prosopocoilus giraffa (keisukei I would say by it's mandibles) made by Sega/Bandai in 2006. This is the revised version. The first one had red eyes and a much more glossy finish. On this version the detail is superb. The legs are a bit bulky but fine nontheles. The mandibles, thorax and legs are moveable. The model is scale 1:1, size: about 12 cm. Tip abdomen to tip mandibles.

There are a lot of P. giraffa figurines made in Japan. Sega alone made at least ten of them. But this one really stands out!

Wonderful! ^-^ I've read about 118 mm specimens of P. g. keisukei, so I wouldn't be too surprised if an exceptionally large male may even reach these 12 cm.
