Japanese Murder Hornet, The Posable Toy

Gif: Kaiyodo

The Asian giant hornet (aka Vespa mandarinia, aka THE MURDER HORNET) is scary and dangerous! But that hasn’t stopped Japanese figure maker Kaiyodo from churning out a posable one.


In Japanese, the insect is called suzumebachi.

This figure is not to scale! The larger size, I guess, makes it easier to pose the stinger and freak friends out.

The Revo Geo Suzumebachi will go on sale this August in Japan.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.



I stared at the picture for a few seconds before I read the title. That was a relief, believe me.
