I only took pics of 2 of the currently-available 5 dragons -- the other three would work a lot less well with DF. These were kinda rushed, with poor lighting, so I may take a few more of the complete set when I have time to do it properly. One is a swimming underwater dragon, so he really does need IO's artistry to make him work. The other two I skipped just look silly, IMHO, so I went with these two. The "hooka chaka hooka hooka!" dancing dragon is goofy, too, but he does kinda look like he's descending on a foe, so I left him alone. The basic red is pretty nice, though, and as always, for $10 you can't go wrong....

The Komodo in the first 2 lines looks the best, (the red here), but for me the Water in this one could work, it looks the least dragon like and so for me and wanting interesting monsters i may get it for my SW game, and the Fire is decent for an Asian dragon.... but not sure if I like it enough to pick up.

Wow... those look great. Now that's how dragons are *supposed* to look in battle!

Pretty great deal! Does one have to buy all of them or can you just get the first one? (the one I like best) The scale seems O.K.

You can get them individually -- $10 each. Online places probably do sell them as sets only, but these are TRU items, so just about anyone should be able to find them. These things will be EVERYWHERE soon, the last series were.

ToyWiz.com sells them individually or as a set, though for slightly more than you can get them at ToysRUs or Kaybee Toys if they happen to carry them locally in your area.

Yeah, I really wouldn't recommend on-line for these, unless you use Amazon. They are just so easy to find, if you are patient -- I found them everywhere already, and they should be in everyone's local store by the end of the month. Why pay more? ;)

Anyhoo, here are some other shots. One of the new Fire Dragon, a neat Chinese number. One of the goofy dancing Berserker, who has a neat face sculpt -- particularly daring customizers could try to chop him up to fix his terrible pose. One of the cool water dragon, which needs that cool IO DF SF sub (I like initials!) for it -- I think we should all pool our resources, a buck a piece for ten of us, and buy IO this guy so he can post pics of it... ;) And then some random shots -- an elf/Komodo confrontation that I REALLY dig, a picture I like to call "Mommy and Daddy are Fighting Again..." and then a blatant "please compliment me" shot of a Warlord figure with a paintjob of which I am proud.... ;)

Happy Holidays!

That last Oriental one will look good in my River and Lake stuff! he, he, he......I gotta say I'm impressed and also quite shocked at the prices for such a large piece. They must be projecting to sell tens of thousands because I am sure that their profits after the distributors and retailers get their cut are quite miniscule. Apart from us gamers, do they really believe that there is a general market out there for Dragons? Obviously this is all due to LOTR and Harry Potter, Narnia, and perhaps even all the Fantasy Video Games out there getting into the mainstream...

I have always thought that Hasbro is missing a great advertising opportunity by not promoting D&D in theatres that show these fantasy movies...I think there is a whole generation of young people who have not been exposed to the fun of Role Playing games (sitting down with actual people) and that they might find that it is just as fun as video games. Proper advertising might draw interest to a whole new generation who already finds fantasy interesting but do not even realize that there are these great imaginitive games out there to play. Oh well, I better not get started...

Stefan, mad crusader.

I'm surprised, too, but I think they are doing well -- the first series sold well enough to merit a second, and there is already going to be a third (pics are out now, release date is Feb 06).

I agree about Hasbro and D&D. They just don't seem to know what they have. There is a real timidity there, perhaps a sense that previous attempts to expand were not as successful as people wanted.

I was amazed to see how much the ball was dropped during LOTR -- fantasy was on the cover of almost every major news magazine, and the hobby barely seemed to register the opportunity to DO something about it. GW deserves special scorn - they had the friggin' license, and they botched it.

Stefan I know what you mean about missed opportunities to bring people into the hobby. I've recently observed people discover D&D late in life who had always liked fantasy fiction and movies and never thought to try D&D. When they tried it, they couldn't believe how fun it was and kept asking "why doesn't everyone play D&D?"
