The reason you don't see them often, could be that it is Thaibreeders who have developed them, and as giants they are hard to breed and maintain - especially in longfinned form.
So unless serious breeders in the US imports them and have succes breeding them, they can not be found in petstores (and I really can't imagine why anyone that could get them to breed would sell them to a petstore, instead of selling them to devoted giant breeders)
I had a lovely Giant HM female - she was bigger than a fullgrown large Plakat male. Unfortunately I did not bother to take comparable pictures as they were only imported on order, so they were already sold when they arrived.
But here is the female, notice how much space she takes of that jar (each side of the jar is 5,5" wide)
And that is a real giant Plakat male in the jar next to her.
And here we have two regular sized plakats - a male on the left and a female on the right - they are in exactly the same jars.

Have you seen a Giant crowntail?

I don't think all of these are shopped
I know this might be late but I just saw this and... Is that a baby that they're calling the Reg? Because I have a tiny, baby DT HM and compared to my adult HM he's really, really, really small.
Now I could be wrong, but that looks like an adult flaring at a little juvie, to me at least.
