New McF Dragons in DF setting 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
got the ice dragon yesterday. mcfarlane loves his long tails. i modified the dragon tail just a little as the very end piece was just too long . awseome sculpt and works well without a base so could work in a dungeon setting . dont mind the bear feet as it can substitute for a magicinas expirament. awesome dragon though. has a good feeling too it which might just be me. going to make it a npc helper in my campaign or could change my mind and make it a monster in a antartica type setting
wicked cool

Yeah I was thinking of getting the Ice Dragon too but the furry feet stopped me. I'll just wait for the ice dragon in set 7

One thing about the Ice Dragon in series 6 that I didn't notice at first -- his neck is ball jointed (kinda)! Granted, the range of movement is quite tiny, but he can look up and down as well as side to side.

WARNING: McFarlane products, as people on these forums have noted, are notoriously fragile and frequently break. Anyone who tries moving the Ice Dragon head and finds that it doesn't want to move -- leave it alone! Push too hard and it will probably snap right off. Not too hard to glue back in place, of course, but I'd hate to think I posted something that got someone to break such a cool dragon.

The problem I often have with some of the dragons is getting the wings to stay on. I'm having great trouble with a dragon from set 4 (I think thats it) in particular - the one thats flying over the trees - I can't get one of the wings to stay in at all anymore...even tried superglue and my first attempt failed...need to work on it again - I imagine I'll get it eventually - but very frustrating.

Ah, yes. That's the Series 5 Eternal dragon. A lot of people love that one, but I've never been crazy about it -- largely because of the wings.

The decision to give it ball-jointed wings must be why people like it -- you can pose the wings in many positions. But they're also tethered to the body by the tiniest connection, far smaller than most of hte other dragons. I want to glue them in place to keep them sturdy, but that not only makes them unposeable, it also makes it a LOT harder to store. I actually like being able to remove the wings, break the dragon into a much easier to put away set of components (again, I loves me the modularity!)

The wings on a few others - the big boxed set Eternal from series 2, also flying, and in fact many of the series 5 dragons (the Komodo comes to mind) have similar problems. But luckily, most of the dragons have wings that are simply permanently on and don't cause this kind of problem.
