help Identifying figures, and general discussion
« on: December 08, 2020, 10:40:20 PM »
Hello! I was browsing google and I found this forum and just knew I had to make an account.
I have recent had a hyper fixation.. specifically for insect toys and models.. I bought this bulk off of Mercari and I'd love identification just so if I buy more figures I know which I have and dont have, as well as learning about what I scored!
(I'd love if theres any sort of set images to know what I have and dont have.

Also if any of you have bug figures for sale lmk haha.
(or any gacha sets, as thats what Im mostly interested in)
For an introduction Im a canadian student so I'm in no way japanese I used a third-party site to export these to me.


These are the listing photos since my camera sucks haha

I am an entomologist and collect a lot of insects.

Really need size, but it looks like the four large ones in the upper left (Chalcosoma, Dynastes, Dorcus, and Prosopocoilus) are by Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. and/or Subarudo and/or Sega.

The two 'flying' figures in the lower left look like they might be Wing Mau (or Sega or Sega knock-offs).

A few of the smaller ones on the bottom row might be Sega also.

Oh awesome, due to me not being japanese myself its kind of hard to find info on these sorts of things haha
