Walk-around Hexarthrius mandibularis sumatranus  (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.

The model is very detailed and realistic. This model is approximatly 11,7cm long, not including the legs. Scale being 1:1 considering a very large male. The tarsus being a bit of scale and bulky. This may be because they where sold more or less as action toys.

So here is Hexarthrius mandibularis sumatranus. 

Sega brought ou two versions of these, one with red eyes and one with black eyes. The later ones being more detailed and having a better finish. Most of the red eyed models have a high gloss varnish that hides lots of detail. On the underside there was the Sega copyright, made in china and the distinctive 4 dots that al the DX and smaller sizes of the series have. I cleared these markings on this figure.
